Ron Paul tells it like it is. We need more clear-eyed leaders such as this.
"Which has resulted in the greatest number of deaths: lying us into war or Wikileaks revelations or the release of the Pentagon Papers?"
From the page: Ron Paul defends Wikileaks on House Floor
I really dont understand the fuss. A reporter is a reporter. He also made sure to go through all the files so no vital military information was available. I applaud his efforts.
pretty interesting points made there :D
the problem, as ever, is that Ron Paul is the ONLY congressman (that I'm aware of) making this argument. Why?
one thing I must differ with we are NOT in a declared war...I know of no formal declaration of war
You go, Ron.
I'm just lukewarm on Ron Paul as a politician, but he hits the nail on the head here.
A lot of people are rightfully wary of Ron Paul because of his odd economic opinions and history of allowing employees to publish racist bullshit under his letterhead (whether he knew about it or not), but most of the stuff he does is like this--basic defense of basic freedoms. Any left-winger can get behind that.
