Ron Paul has stood courageously against the current American support of foreign intervention and military aid around the world. Such policies not only have spelled economic disaster for the USA but also has resulted in the deaths of thousands to millions of innocent civilians, men, women, and children. He also opposes sanctions that have caused governments and tyrants control of food supply and other leveraging tools. His non-interventionist foreign policy is not only a return to the founders principles and a road map for the American people but is a beacon for the world to follow as an example of both friendships and peace. For these reasons I encourage the nomination of Ron Paul for the 2008 Nobel Peace Prize.
