Following the GOP debate on Thursday night in Ames, Iowa, Congressman Ron Paul was interviewed by Fox News' John Stossel.
When asked by Stossel about US foreign policy, here is what Dr. Paul had to say, "My argument with others who talk about the wars, and I've always argued that I'd win this argument, not because I am going to give the great speech and persuade a lot of people, but I think the economics will finally bring over a lot of the conservatives who have been anxious to fight these wars because we can't afford them anymore. … It is literally into the trillions of dollars that we've been spending over these last ten years and they are going to go on for decades. When you think of the thousands – hundreds of thousands – of people applying for help at the Veterans Administration, that just tears me up to see the tragedy. … I just don't believe these wars are necessary and financially we can't afford them. And I think our country is going to come around to say enough is enough and I think we will bring our troops home."
