I have been advised that in light of Dr. Paul's "newsletters" of 20 years ago I should clarify my position about him.
1- I do not endorse him. Will I vote for Obama? Probably not.
2. I agree with his notional non-interventionist foreign policy positions.
3. I agree with his ideas about the proper role of the federal government to the extent that he would like to get the coercive power of the federal government out of our lives.
4. I do not agree with his apparent belief that the social safety net and in particular Medicare and Medicaid are unconstitutional.
5, He may well have changed but the record of his past publications is such that he should not have run for president.
