Our political leaders fail to connect foreign policy decisions with domestic policy decisions. Ron Paul is the only one running for President, perhaps besides Dennis Kucinich, who connects the two. When people in the media ask him about domestic policies that he would like to make as President, he typically starts with foreign policy. It is very clear from the statistics in this article that this foreign policy is unsustainable for our domestic policy desires. Republicans cannot responsibly cut taxes without cutting money from our foreign policy spending. Democrats cannot fund the massive welfare programs that they want until our foreign policy spending is cut.
Ron Paul is also the only candidate who actually asks what the federal government's role in the country and the world should be. Perhaps this does not catch on, as our society has seemingly left a world of reason long ago for the current mess we live in. Then again, maybe these questions Ron Paul poses is exactly why he is such an exciting candidate to learn more about. The whole world should be cheering for Ron Paul, when we make comparisons to the candidates the mainstream media throws at us to vote for.
