Republicans just don't get it. Ron Paul is the only one who goes by the Constitution. Less spending, less government, fewer wars. That's where he strays from most Republicans, they love preemptive war and ignoring the Golden Rule. Do unto others as you'd have them do unto you... unless you think they are dangerous then bomb the crap out of them. http://www.whatthehellbook.com/the-book/
