Noting Ron Paul’s anti-interventionist position “may be the most mainstream thing” the Congressman believes, Todd Seavey writes (you’ll have to scroll way down to get to this part):
In contrast to his views on the military, I’m completely onboard with Paul in his desire to:
-abolish the Federal Reserve
-end Federal involvement in drug enforcement
-abolish the income tax
-dismantle the entire welfare state
-get the U.S. out of the U.N.
-restore the gold standard and/or allow private currency production
-end all subsidies
-eliminate virtually all Cabinet-level agencies
And so on. Who would have thought, in other words, that being antiwar is the thing that would get him “in trouble”? I only wish I could take this to mean we’re all now in agreement on all those other items.
