Doctor Paul's proposal also calls for all US troops to return to America, ending the War on Terror immediately. How fast is "immediately"? His definition is obviously quite different than President Obama's. The current President has been in office for three years and we still have troops in over one hundred countries across the globe. So what does "immediately" mean to Ron Paul?
"As fast as the ships can get there".
Paul has been called an isolationist for criticizing the military industrial complex in America. Evidently, prioritizing the safety of American lives over a never-ending quest for global dominance makes you anti-social. Paul has opposed the war since its onset calling it "unconstitutional" on many occasions. It is ,after all, an undeclared war much like Vietnam. While Paul's foreign policy emphasizes trade with all nations, he stands firmly against the US getting involved with entangling alliances.
Paul's plan to audit the federal reserve and abolish the income tax in America comes coupled with the idea that federal government be downsized to its smallest possible form. You cannot have one without the other. As long as citizens are allowed and encouraged to not participate in their own democracy - as long as they expect the government to cradle them and care for them in every aspect of their lives - you cannot get rid of the income tax. However, if you reduce the size of the federal government and empower the states to run themselves, you give the people back the power they were meant to have all along.
