Politics: No Hate Like That Within the Family

This, if you can believe it, is a speech given by a Republican Congressman from Texas, Ron Paul. Well worth the read, if you're amongst those who had given up any kind of rationality from that political sphere. It includes this gem:

"...We no longer trust in trade, friendship, peace, the Constitution, and the principle of neutrality while avoiding entangling alliances with the rest of the world. Spreading the message of hope and freedom by setting an example for the world has been replaced by a belief that use of armed might is the only practical tool to influence the world..."

Nice to see that someone has thought about the impact of the war in Iraq without the rose-white-and-blue tinted glasses.

I only hope there's someone down South listening.
