I know some Australians enjoy watching American politics and I have seen various support buttons on local websites. What I don’t understand is Australians who are supporting Congressman Ron Paul. The bloke is an isolationist. He believes in the US withdrawing its military commitments around the world. How will that benefit Australia? If the US withdraw from our region the Chinese would move in. Expect a nuclear arms race. Paul calls himself a libertarian which seems to be the basis of his support. Sorry, but I don’t think being a believer in freedom means you should support your own destruction.
Bidinotto does a good job of taking Paul apart here.
