I have gave each candidate serious thought and seen most of them in person. I actually looked deep into Ron Paul because his emphasis on the constitution. Unfortunately Congressman Paul does not score high marks when it comes to the primary job given to the President by the constitution, which is Commander in Chief.
His foreign policy is ridiculous in that we isolate ourselves. We abandon our Israeli ally and let them fend for themselves against neighboring countries that want to "wipe them off the map". Ron Paul is the Karl Marx of the Republican party. By this I mean that everything revolves around economics. In my opinion, a President has much more control over the safety of its citizens rather than the economic climate. The only major thing a President can do is cut taxes and limit spending, which each candidate says they will do.
The biggest problem I have is his total disregard of radical Islamic ideals trying to destroy the western culture (i.e. America, Great Britain and Israel). I have also posted a video that proves Ron Paul does not pay attention to current events, but rather listens to his own ideas about blaming America. It comes as no surprise that he has the support of "truthers". As someone who has served on a United States Naval ship, I would like to remind Ron Paul of the USS Cole, which lost American lives due to a small boat attack. It frightens me to think of Ron Paul as Commander and Chief.
This post is directed at Ron Paul's ridiculous statements at the debate in South Carolina and not directed at anyone's personal endorsement of Ron Paul.
