I've been in lazy, cut and paste mode for a couple days; looking forward to getting out and doing some actual journalism today. Tune in later for Chris Dodd. But before I do, one more round of ctrl-c, ctrl-v.
Although Paul seems moderate and competent when compared to his Republican presidential rivals, his views on other issues are strictly mainstream conservative.
Paul does not believe in a woman's right to choose. He also believes that "birthright citizenship" should be outlawed. He believes that government is too big. Does this mean that if Paul were empowered to do so, he would be likely to cut social services and programs that assist the poor and others who need assistance?
Paul opposes a national health care system, he opposes gay marriage, he believes that environmental legislation should be left up to the states, he believes that "don't ask don't tell" is good policy, and true to his former Libertarian roots, he believes that citizens should in fact have as little to do with the federal government as possible.
