Ron Paul is for getting our troops out of Iraq as soon as possible. Does this mean we would leave Iraq as soon as he became President. Ron Paul is also wanting to restore the constitutional balance of powers. He wants war to only be an option if congress declares a declaration of war. So staying in Iraq would ultimately be a congressional decision. When congress makes a declaration of war they lay out clearly what their goals are. Ron Paul would also make sure rebuilding projects are given to the most qualified and not to political friends. He would cut the graft that runs up the costs in war expenditures. Ron Paul would also probably listen to the comand decisions of generals instead of less qualified cabinet members like Rumsfeld. This alone could have saved us alot of problems when it came to securing the peace after the initial invasion. The surge should have been in place early on.
