Supports govt. mandates regarding: health care, education (NCLB), defining marriage; and states that trading liberty for security is acceptable. Romney also supports secret surveillance of US citizens.
Voted against the Patriot Act and has vehemently condemned Obama's signing of the NDAA as well as SOPA which allows for policing of the internet. Says that when we give up our liberties for an increased sense of security, we are ushering in a police state against which our only line of defense is strong gun rights (2nd Amendment).

Predicted the bubble as early as 2000 and warned Congress in session. Stated that government backed loans were responsible for the bubble. His warnings went unheeded and were considered fringe ideas - every expert now agrees that Paul was correct. Paul states that overseas bases and troops support foreign economies. Returned soldiers could be spending their money here at home and supporting local economies as well as providing security for our borders. fyi: many local US economies collapsed due to continued domestic base closures while our foreign base deployment expanded for the last couple of decades.

In March 2009: said it was necessary. In Sept 2009: NOW avidly opposed to it. Even though Romney NOW recognizes Tarp was a collosal failure, he still says his business accumen is his strong suit and the main reason why he should be President. Even with Romney's touted business accumen, he had NO IDEA of the impending collapse of the housing market and now says let the foreclosures happen.

Would like to add 100,000 troops to our military foreign based capabilities.
