Re: Kudos to Bob for setting the record straight on his hero, Ron Paul
I'm in a huury now so cannot answer fully, but I'll just say that people who develop strong pro-peace convictions early in their political lives are likely to sustain them till the day they die (except Christopher Hitchens). This has been my experience in living through Vietnam and all subsequent permutations of antiwar activism. It's a powerful conviction like anti-racism or anti-sexism. Eventually those kinds of core convictions change the world.
