I am not saying that people should vote for Paul, since I won't do it myself. I am saying they should listen to him attentively when he speaks about FP. Does that still make me responsible for his "odious" views? Maybe to some extent, but we all pay that price all the time. I voted for Obama and I find many of his positions perfectly odious.

And Wright's comment about reciprocity resonates with me. I loathe the attitude "Oh, FP doesn't much matter to us: goldbuggery, now that's a big deal." How sweet is that? I want to ask these people: If it were your daughter being wiped out from the sky with our fancy drones, would you feel the same way? I don't think interest in FP is optional: people killing in our name warrant our critical attention.
