Paul Foreign Policy Gaining Traction

Paul Foreign Policy Gaining Traction

Ron Paul released a statement on his website Tuesday that says he supports the pre-9/11 foreign policy views of President George W. Bush.

“I think one way for us to end up being viewed as the ugly American is for us to go around the world saying ‘we do it this way, so should you,’” Bush said during an October 2000 debate.

The then-Presidential candidate went on to say that the United States should avoid an arrogant approach to foreign policy and seek to be a “humble nation” that does not engage in “nation-building.”

Paul’s campaign contends that his foreign policy is basically what Americans voted for in 2000.

International Business Times, in a recent editorial, says that despite reports that Paul’s view on foreign policy is a detriment to his campaign, it is actually one of his strongest points. The article opines that Americans soon will realize the dire economic consequences of the U.S. perpetual war policy and Paul may have the only plan to avoid disaster. The author contends that a continuance of current foreign policy may result in the United States suffering a Soviet-style collapse and possible encroachment by China.

Another real indication that Paul’s foreign policy views are the most logical, says the article, can be traced to campaign contributions:

If nothing else, consider the fact that Paul has raised more money than of any other 2012 presidential candidates from members of the military. In fact, while contributions from members of the military topped Paul’s campaign, contributions from individuals associated with Goldman Sachs topped Mitt Romney’s campaign. Military members, after all, know firsthand a thing or two about U.S. foreign policy.
