Paul remains the only antiwar candidate and doesn't mind saying the war is unconstitutional. He thinks the war was a mistake. Why continue a mistake when the cost of the war is high in both American lives and money? he asks. He appears to be the only GOP candidate who's aware that Iraq and 9/11 aren't connected.
Paul also seems to be the only candidate who opposes Bush's usurpation of power. He appears to be the only one familiar with concepts in the Constitution like habeas corpus or civil rights.
Please don't read this as my endorsement of Ron Paul. He's a breath of fresh air in the republican race, but he's still an ass-backward hypocrite when it comes to stuff like keeping the government away from a women's right to choose. He still has that standard Republican thing where they throw the whole "small government" belief out the window when women or Jesus come into the picture.
