The poll cited in the article was Rasmussen. Other polls have pegged the anti-war/unsure GOP total as high as 70%.

The people on here all doom and gloom need to stop worrying about what faux news and the ultra right talking heads say, they don't speak for the majority.

Sorry, said I was not going to post in non-moneybomb threads, but this quote is so relevant!

Last month, a national Rasmussen poll asked if the U.S. should take military action to prevent Iran from developing nuclear weapons “if diplomatic efforts failed,” and just 51% of Republicans said yes. 22% said no, and 27% were unsure. Paul has a chance to reach at least part of that 27%, and it is far from obvious that Paul alienated them last night. Independents are even less supportive of preventive war against Iran: only 33% were in favor, 39% were against, and 28% were unsure. The pro-war candidates have essentially written off these voters, and there is really only one candidate left for them to support if they want to register opposition to the rest of the field’s aggressive policies.

Read those numbers, which are encouraging by themselves.

Now imagine what the poll results would be if the question was along the lines of:


1. Both Russia and China are allied with Iran. Would you be willing to risk a global war with these two countries if we invaded Iran to prevent them from developing a nuclear weapon?

2. While there are a number of countries with nuclear weapons around the world, no nuclear weapon has been used offensively since WWII. In addition, no nuclear power has ever been invaded. Do you think that if Iran were to build a nuclear weapon, it intended to use it offensively or defensively?

3. An invasion of Iran would likely cause a blocking of the Persian Gulf and a global shortage of oil for some time. Would you be willing to accept gas prices as high as $12 or more per gallon in the event that the United States were to begin military operations against Iran?


Add that to the fact that our ideas are winning, and we are educating people all the time.

Ignore the political commentators, Ron did good. :D

The talking heads are blatantly ignoring the fact Paul gets more military donations than all the others combined. They need to be reminded of this- if they want to support the troops they wouldn't trash talk Paul's foreign policy because that's the foreign policy our troops are putting their money behind. That's what they want and anytime they want to call Paul's philosophy isolationist or weak then they are saying the same of all the troops who support him. Paul supports our troops and believes in upholding the Constitution. Fox and the talking heads support neither. They're eager to get them in new wars so that more of our soldiers can die, so more kids can lose their parents, so our country can go further into debt and are all about trampling on the Constitution. Pretty soon the terrorists won't hate us for our freedoms anymore because Fox and their ilk support the govt taking them away while backstabbing the only person running who has spent his life trying to protect them. What will they blame terrorism on then? Their hypocrisy is becoming apparent to all and their fearmongering is a joke. Shine a light on it.

In my humble opinion, the venom dripping from the tongues of the likes of Dick Morris and Monica Crowley the other day speak VOLUMES.


What does a rabid dog do when it's backed into a corner? :eek:
