Not all Iowa politicians support Ron Paul. It turns out that right-wing Republican, Steve King doesn’t think much of Ron Paul. In fact, King thinks Ron Paul would be a dangerous President. In comments made to Politico, King seemed to be concerned about Paul’s philosophy regarding foreign policy.
“He’s not dangerous unless he’s president,” King said. “I don’t think that the Paul supporters have really stepped back and thought about what would happen if Ron Paul were operating out of the Oval Office and the commander-in-chief of our armed forces.”
Here’s the audio:
Even though King and I are rarely on the same side, King has every right to be worried about a Ron Paul Presidency. Ron Paul has made it clear that he wants America to be isolated from the rest of the world. He would end US participation in the United Nations, and would end all American influence in the world. The last time America was an isolationist country, two World Wars occurred. If Paul had been President instead of FDR, he would have allowed Hitler to conquer Europe and would never have allowed America to participate in foreign affairs. We would never have helped Europe rebuild and the Soviets would have been unchallenged. His domestic policy would be even more dangerous and would border on anarchy. Social Security and Medicare would be gone along with practically the entire government. That means no more regulations that protect us from the irresponsibility of corporations. Ron Paul would let corporations run America.
Ron Paul would indeed be a dangerous President. And when even Steve King thinks Paul is dangerous, it’s definitely worth thinking about.
