I believe that his policies are too extreme. We face much different threats that we have ever faced when it comes to radical terrorism, Iran, the entire middle east and the arab spring. When people are willing to commit suicide bombings and die for their cause it is difficult to believe that we can negotiate with them. I believe that the threat we face is one that is based on a deep radical religious belifs. Ron Paul seems to believe in the laissez faire brand of forign policy. While that may work when you are dealing with rational threats, I don't believe it works when the threats are not rational. I agree that we cannot police the world and that we should go about declaring war through the proper congressional channels but I also believe that we must be vigalent and proactive in our defense and national security policies. I agree with much of the monitary policy of Mr. Paul but he does hold some very extreme views on forign policy and a number of other issues. I do not believe he will win the nomination and I believe that if he somehow does that his views are to extreme to challenge President Obama. There is also the fear of a third party run which would no doubt hand the presidency to the democrats. Even Gary Johnson's run as a 3rd party candidate may fracture some portion of the republican vote. I suppose it is good to follow your core principles but a third party run on priciples may very well cause a complete shift toward an administration and a policy which is much further away from the principles which you embrace.
