|Ron Paul Campaign Rally New Hampshire|
"The best choice for their children, grandchildren, and country clearly lies in the Founder’s foreign-policy wisdom and Dr. Paul’s sturdy advocacy and promised application thereof."The head of the Israeli intelligence, Mossad chief Tamir Pardo, agrees with Ron Paul on potential nuclear Iran, in addition Vali Nasr, a highly respected expert on the Middle East, agrees with Ron Paul on Iran as the Atlantic's Robert Wright reports:
"The good news is that Nasr thinks war can be averted. The bad news is that to accomplish this America and other Western powers need to "imagine how the situation looks from Tehran"--not exactly a favorite pastime among American politicians these days."Finally US Lt. Col. Tony Shaffer said on Fox last week:
“I think Ron Paul’s perspective or policy on Iran is probably the most accurate of the current GOP candidates”While Romney is playing the Huntsman card, the battle for the "compassionate conservative" voting block between the surging Doug Wead camp and the (communitarian) Marvin Olasky camp is in full swing. Also Ron Paul directly adresses compassionate conservatives in the ABC/Yahoo debate last night (9:00) in a claim that hasn't been analyzed much yet, but that sheds light on his definition of the word libertarian (as opposed to french-revolution liberalism):
"one of my heroes is Martin Luther King because he practiced the libertarian principle of peacefull resistance and peacefull civil disobedience as Rosa Parks did"gives us his view on US politics and Ron Paul. Ron Paul's views on slavery and the constitution are also instructive in this context, explained in this excellent interview at (0:32:15). The mood, as described by Jake Morphonios ,surrounding Ron Paul's campaign reminds me a lot of the movie with Christopher Walken: Deer Hunter. I noticed this before.
However this weekend Olasky's camp scored a major victory with the endorsement by Mr. Bean of Rick Santorum (see video below).
