Ron Paul: Why Obama Is Wrong on Libya




Congressman Ron Paul, a member of the House Foreign Relations Committee and honorary chairman of Campaign for Liberty, criticized President Obama’s decision to impose a no-fly zone over Libya in a video shot earlier today.

In the video, Congressman Paul argues that:

  1. The action is an act of War.
  2. The no-fly zone is unconstitutional because Congress has not authorized it, a point Senate Foreign Relations Committee Ranking Member Richard Lugar agrees with.
  3. President Obama has illegally seceded U.S. sovereignty to the United Nations.
  4. The United States cannot afford the financial burden of more military action in the Middle East.

  1. Ron Paul is not only NOT a conservative, he is a archetypical liberal. People don't understand the names. Most people the right call "liberals" are actually progressives. The word "Liberal" comes from "civil liberties" in the same way that "libertarian" does. If you don't understand politics and government, either educate yourself or STFU.

  8. you're right about that. it was a clue of what was possibly to come when they murdered him on the spot when he surrendered instead of putting him on trial. things are more unstable there now than they were before he was killed. who knows what sort of whackos are going to come out of that country over the coming years.

  9. There's nobody in this world that could possibly attack us today... we could defend this country with a few good submarines. If anybody dared touch us we could wipe any country off of the face of the earth within hours. And here we are, so intimidated and so insecure and we're acting like such bullies that we have to attack third-world nations that have no military and have no weapons.

  10. There wasn't a single American killed in Libya... the USA was gathering info with drones and bombing from 30,000 feet. Then they backed off and let the others handle it. Britain and France didn't have good enough equipment to esablish the no fly zone or something they needed the US military's superior technology/planes. I love RP on some issues but here he's dead wrong. Saying "Gadaffi was a bad buy but..." is the same as saying I don't care if he commits genocide on his own people.

  12. the Welches' don't seem to understand Ron Paul . His principals are clearly stated in his campaign speeches but they don't hear him. You didn't hire him, you can't fire him. You also underestimate his base. the 15% you speak of is just the ones that were allowed representation. what about the unnumbered Independent the disgruntled Democrats?
