Ron Paul Trounces Santorum on Foreign Policy in CNN Debate

On Thursday night, the four remaining GOP presidential candidates squared off in Jacksonville in the second of two Florida debates, hosted by CNN and moderated by Wolf Blitzer.  While much of the debate time was again wasted on callow rhetoric between neo-con candidates Mitt Romney and Newt Gingrich, Congressman Ron Paul indoctrinated the audience with principled lessons on liberty and the proper role of government.

Paul showcased his brand of non-interventionist foreign policy in a series of exchanges with former senator Rick Santorum.  These exchanges provided crystal clear contrasts in opposing political philosophies from which voters much choose. Each time that Paul and Santorum sparred over foreign policy, the Texas congressman pummeled the feeble foundations of Santorum’s unprincipled ideologies and tutored his opponents on the basics of the US Constitution (that pesky, outdated thing they would have to swear to uphold if elected president).

Wolf Blitzer addressed the following question to Congressman Paul:

“What would you do as president to more deeply engage in Latin America and, more importantly, to support the governments and political parties that support democracy and free markets?”

Santorum is so full of himself.  Here is the low down on ole Rick the clueless.

.Santorum's nephew goes for Ron Paul:

http://www.thehollywoodgossip.com/2012/01/nephew-of-rick-santorum-vote-ron-paul/    Santorum insanely rails on freedom & individualism.
http://www.abovetopsecret.com/forum/thread793960/pg1   Rick said:   “One of the criticisms I make is to what I refer to as more of a Libertarianish right.  They have this idea that people should be left alone, be able to do whatever they want to do, government should keep our taxes down and keep our regulations low, that we shouldn’t get involved in the bedroom, we shouldn’t get involved in cultural issues. {ARE YOU KIDDING ME???}   That is not how traditional conservatives view the world. There is no such society that I’m aware of, where we’ve had radical individualism and that it succeeds as a culture.”  Hear Rick's own words from the video in the above link. This idiotic comment alone should get Santorum bounced. Rick is diametrically opposed to Ron Paul's freedom & liberty message.   Santorum is for big govt. http://tinyurl.com/7vb6rtl   Rick opposed Right To Work. http://tinyurl.com/6wovnma   Compassionate conservative Rick Santorum, by Jack Hunter http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Iev7TKsXoHo   http://tinyurl.com/7lwkzao   In a losing battle Big Pharma’s largest election expenditure, half a million dollars, was spent on Sen. Rick Santorum (R-PA)   http://www.newswithviews.com/Richards/byron14.htm

Mitt & Newt are also CINO-RINOs.
