Our endorsement: Ron Paul is the right man for the job
Arab American News
It was Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., perhaps America's greatest civil rights leader and one of its most trusted moral compasses, who once spoke out against America's penchant for dictating the affairs of other nations through military and other interventions.
"Don't let anybody make you think that God chose America as his divine, messianic force to be a sort of policeman of the whole world...," he said in his landmark speech, 'Why I am Opposed to the War in Vietnam' in 1967.
More than four decades later, longtime Texas Congressman Ron Paul, 76, has gained a loyal following, even among scores of youth voters, in large part because of his own interpretation of that philosophy. Paul has gained notoriety by cautioning against the consequences of the United States' role as "policeman of the world" several times on the Republican campaign circuit while emphasizing the need for military spending and foreign aid cuts at a time when our money is needed at home more than ever.
