    Watching the debate, I believe Ron Paul put in a VERY solid performance. His foreign-policy stance, which involves a review of history, deserves long form answers which are not a good fit for a short-form debate, especially where the audience is clearly hostile on this issue. But, he did quite well regardless. If you disagree with Ron Paul on the foreign-policy issue, but you like some of his stances (especially his focus on restoring America through liberty and a focus on the constitution), you should watch this video to understand the foreign policy issue a bit better:

    we need all the dirty laundry in the open...this is taking steam away from obama...let er rip. In the end the GOP will stand together and take power from this radical left wing of the democratic party...both the Presidency and legislative branches. There is a lot of work to be done...twelve years of poor leader ship following the clinton mess..time for adult leadership!
