there are so many things wrong with the Ron Paul school of thought domestically and with foreign policy that its a shame so many people who hate both left and right buy into it. i can get behind a independent in the middle but not Ron Paul's ridiculous policies with no government agencies and doing nothing abroad thinking everything will fix itself
Terrorism would decrease if stopped spitting in the middle easts face. We have been doing so since 1948. It takes a lot to incite a weaker entity to engage a stronger entity. We have provided ample reason for them to hate us.
But dont worry we wont be cutting the military significantly, we will continue to cling to our last advantage of the rest of the world. Also you are right if the only thing we did was to cut our military they would still hate us. We would need to stop our policies in the middle east. We obviously wont do that.
