"Former Republican Rep. Ron Paul, the father of potential presidential candidate Rand Paul and a former presidential candidate himself, said the Congressional Black Caucus does not support war because they want that money for food stamps. 'I was always annoyed with it in Congress because we had an anti-war unofficial group, a few libertarian Republicans and generally the Black Caucus and others did not -- they are really against war because they want all of that money to go to food stamps for people here,' Ron Paul told Lew Rockwell in early February during a discussion on sanctions. 'But when it came to sanctions they just could never vote against sanctions that would prevent war and they wanted to look tough and they would go on with the sanctions but never get the results that they thought there were going to get."

    Even if he believes this, he’s a damned fool for saying it. I’m beginning to think Ron Paul is past his “bury-by” date.
