Ron Paul: Cain, Bachmann Have ‘Un-American’ Beliefs On Torture

Texas Rep. Ron Paul on Saturday called supporting torture “un-American” after two of his rivals for the GOP presidential nomination said that if they were elected, they would allow waterboarding to be used on detainees captured by the United States

Ron Paul speaks the truth about America.

That is exactly why he will NEVER be the US President

Our military waterboards our own Navy Seals and Special Forces as routine training to be prepared for enhanced interigation. Do they feel the same about that?

I would not vote for this guy or obama.

Anyone who says they disagree with enhanced interrogation is either sheltered, lying, unrealistic or completely ignorant of what goes on in times of war. We're talking about nuclear war, here. If Paul was told his family would die if he didn't get info out of a terrorist, he'd waterboard him himself. We aren't fighting for land anymore. We are fighting to exist.

Calling torture "enhanced interrogation" was just one of the tactics used during the rise of Nazi Germany. Check out Naomi Wolf's books "The End of America" and "Give Me Liberty"

Be careful what you wish for.

9:54 I agree! Bless the man for speaking out even when it's not popular. Wish he'd find a better fitting suit.

If it wasn't for techniques such as water-boarding, bin laden would still be alive and hiding.

This 'torture' is only mental. Subjects are in no real pain physically. They may choke on water, gasp for air, etc., but they are not maimed like our troops have been in the past and maybe currently.

If you're gonna fight a war, fight it to win or get your ass out of there. And get ALL politicians out of any decision making processes involved with the tactics of war. (Except of course for the C-IN-C.)
