Tom Walsh

Ron Paul has three main points in his opposition to the war, neither of which are the position of any of the Democratic candidates.

The first is that the Constitution of the United States specificly forbids going to war without Congress declaring war. (Article I, Section 8)

Second, he is disturbed by the shift in public policy from the Christian "Just War Theory" to one of "Preemptive War".

And finally, the war and the stationing of our troops over seas is bankrupting our nation and placing our own nation at risk of invasion. Therefore, he wants to bring them home to defend our own borders.
