Ron Paul is out there to try and save the GOP from themselves. It is a crusade that the masses have not seen since the days of Don Quixote. Ron Paul’s attitude may be along the lines of saving the GOP from themselves, but his Ayn Rand based philosophy would be a disaster when it comes to the cultural structure of the nation.
Still, Paul stated on CBS’ Face the Nation that “The truth is, I’m trying to save the Republican Party from themselves because they want perpetual wars, they don’t care about presidents who assassinate American citizens, they don’t care about searching our houses without search warrants, and these are the kind of things people care about.”
Paul is refusing to backdown from his run for the Presidency saying that “The votes haven’t been counted … there’s no way I’m going to quit speaking out on this and there’s no way I’m going to give up on the effort to get the Republicans back to their roots.”
He is also critical of Obama’s handling of the Afghan War, apparently ignoring that Obama has already started the drawback. He stated that “It was a waste, there’s not gonna be a happy ending, and I think the Republicans have dug a hole for themselves because they’re trying to out-militarize the president, say ‘we should do more.’ Yet 75 percent of the American people say ‘we’ve had enough’.”
Paul finally stated that “The other Republican candidates offer nothing more than a continuation of a status quo or actually increasing the militarism we have around the worst so I think that’s a losing position.”
