A while ago I created the Freedom Thread (FreedomThread.com (http://www.freedomthread.com)) in support for Ron Paul and shared lots of videos and information about Ron Paul's ideas there. There is now a big debate over there on the war issue, any help would be appreciated.
The Freedom Thread (http://www.freedomthread.com) is a very good promotional tool for Ron Paul, check it out and please contribute to the thread.
I hope it helps

His position is that nation-building and interventionism not only weakens our borders and national defense, since we're stretched so thin, but makes people more likely to take up arms against the United States. Basically, such a policy radicalizes many of these people and unites them all with a common goal of driving the infidels out of their holy lands and homes. It's in the bipartisan 9/11 Commission Report. Called"blowback".
As if that wasn't enough, it's bankrupting us and we're increasingly tight on manpower... and this is "only" 5 years into Iraq alone. And keep in mind that we were doing the same exact things for years before 9/11, just not on the scale of Iraq, and those were reasons cited by our very enemies as to why they attacked us. The terrorists don't hate us because we're free, they hate us because they hate what we do just as much as we would hate it if China had bases in California.
All this to... find WMDs? Fight al-Qaeda, which didn't even exist in Iraq until we took over? Surely not for humanitarian reasons, since conservatives and Republicans opposed Clinton when he wanted to go into Kosovo and Somalia. They were even willing to cut off funding for our troops to end the conflict.
