A guest submission from Rochelle Edvalson

And this is why I believe Ron Paul will not win the Republican nomination or the Presidency. This is his answer to why we should not have a foreign presence in other countries. I’m not commenting on whether he is right or wrong, I am think that this is a good way to destroy his chances at the the Oval Office. I don’t see him garnering votes from military members or conservative but non-libertarians.

Regarding 9/11, Paul said that attacks against the U.S. from Middle Eastern groups at home and abroad can be traced to the foreign presence of U.S. troops, as well as America’s relationships with dictator regimes. Paul referred to a military base in Saudi Arabia, the birthplace of Islam, as a key motivator in the Sept. 11th attacks.
