If the Republican Base, which has been bloodthirsty for war with Iran for years now, is going to change their perceptions on sanctions, Paul needs to remind them that it will kill jobs at home. Considering people really only care about jobs at home, I think the connection would be powerful.

Because the west is no longer buying oil from Iran, they will need to sell their oil more cheaply to China, while the west will be experiencing higher prices due to a lower supply. This means that gas will be cheaper in China than in the US, and thus it will be even cheaper to produce in China, which will cost us more manufacturing jobs.

Jobs is red meat for the republican base. Let them see how the others will kill jobs and send more to China.
