Default Kudos to Bob for setting the record straight on his hero, Ron Paul

Bob provide a great assessment of Ron Paul's foreign policy.
Let this serve as a 'teachable moment' for those liberals on this board who allowed their disagreement with Paul's domestic conservative/libertarianism to lead them to portray this classic libertarian, who is the least sympathetic of the entire political field (including Obama) to Kaus and others obsessed with illegal immigrants, and who is the purist free trader of the entire political field, as, of all things, a 'nativist' or 'isolationist'.

The recent discussions, from the liberal commentors in this forum, regarding Ron Paul, is great example of how ideological identity can lead to huge blind spots.
