[QUOTE=parafly;2219761]JetsCrazey, you seem to be very knowledgeable on Ron Paul's stance on the issues. Can you offer any insight into his alternative fuels policy and whether or not he is willing to end America's dependence on oil?[/QUOTE]
2 words: free markets.
It is estimated that staying in the Middle East for special-interest wars will cost the American people $1 trillion in debt to China and Japan.
Ron Paul's solution? Stop policing the world (it's partly BECAUSE of the war that oil prices have gone up), take that $1 trillion that would have been taxed and then spent outside of America on wars for oil and contractors, and instead let it stay in the people's wallets. Less military spending = More wealth for the American people = a more stable dollar = stable oil prices = that money can now be used for the American market to develop cheaper alternatives to oil.
Free markets work, and Ron Paul is not a protectionist/isolationist contrary to what some claim.
