The Lone Star
10-04-2007
The Concord Monitor details yesterday’s editorial board meeting with Republican presidential candidate, Congressman Ron Paul of Texas. Here is the passage that caught my eye:
 
Paul can simplify problems in a way that must give his Republican rivals fits. On Iraq and the use of military force as an instrument of foreign policy he said: "We're taxed to blow up their bridges, then we're taxed to rebuild their bridges. Meanwhile, our bridges are falling down."
 
We have already witnessed several of those fits first-hand in recent presidential debates. Paul may have little likelihood of winning the Republican nomination, but his ability to paint the choices facing our country in such stark terms (and raise some cash, too), means that he still has an opportunity to influence the political discourse driving his party’s nomination contest.
