Teddy Roosevelt Endorses Ron Paul?

“Peace is not the absence of conflict. It is the ability to handle conflict through peaceful means.”--Ronald Reagan, who defeated our greatest enemy without war

"Speak softly and carry a big stick; you will go far."--Theodore Roosevelt, "Rough Rider" war hero and commander-in-chief of the "Great White Fleet" who won a Nobel Peace Prize by ending a war in Asia (Treaty of Portsmouth)

Ron Paul's unbeatable military power speaks softly and carries a big stick.

Ron Paul knows that the key to US national security is a strong strategic capability. Paul reminds us that our fleet of nuclear ballistic missile submarines provides an iron deterrence. Any country that attacked us would invite massive retaliation and Mutual Assured Destruction (MAD).

Remember that suicide terrorism is a weapon of the weak, the very weak such as lone individuals, and they are best defeated by intelligence and special units while keeping our major conventional forces free and ready to meet major conventional threats.

In fact, we look weak and foolish when we let a few cave-dwelling jihadists tie up our aircraft carriers and infantry divisions.

Countries are a different matter. Neither Hitler nor Saddam Hussein ever dared to use chemical weapons against the United States.

The purpose of the military is to enable the diplomacy.

Ron Paul knows what Roosevelt and Reagan knew, that the strong military enables successful diplomacy precisely so that you achieve your goals without war, as Reagan did with the Soviet Union.

The United States has the patience to talk because its negotiations are backed by the world’s most powerful military deterrence.

Captain Ron Paul’s strategic deterrence policy is in good company with that of Ronald Reagan and Teddy Roosevelt.
