Reagan on Ron Paul
"Ron Paul is one of the outstanding leaders fighting for a stronger national defense. As a former Air Force officer, he knows well the needs of our armed forces, and he always puts them first. We need to keep him fighting for our country."--U.S. President Ronald Reagan
Reagan was not one to confuse a necessary and vigorous defense with nation-razing/building, meddling, escalating where we have no business, and other popular forms of globalism. These are two entirely different concepts, somehow completely escaping the scrutiny of some conservatives today.
No, today we dare not talk about actually defending our borders. Instead, we aim to erase them. Conservatives need to re-educate themselves on what the word Defense means.
