Is that not priceless?
That was what was holding me back as well, until I heard him speak briefly on the subject.He shares my opinion in a necessary presence where our interests are concerned, but places like Europe are in question where bases are concerned.He emphasized we have a Constitutional obligation to a strong Military, but thinks we have no business in certain parts of the world.But to alleviate the suspicion that he is for pulling our troops out of the global theater, here is what he said about Libya.
I totally agree our presence in Europe is outdated. There is no immediate threat for Russia to do anything stupid. The EU needs to step up and protect themselves. The outcry would come from western socialist EU members. The former Soviet controlled countries cherish their freedom and would probably be ready to protect themselves.
It's too early to say yet. We do not even know what the GOP field will look like. However, at this time I would say NO. Sure, he has said some good things lately. However, he is still Ron Paul's son and that is just a little too close to the kook for me.
He took a lot of heat from the Paulites (Ron Paulites) for endorsing Romney. He's not his father. I thought his father was great as a congressman, but his son is far more presidential. He and Rubio and Paul Ryan are the only ones I think are qualified for the job.
