|Ron Paul has won the singular honor of being expelled from the Young Americans for Freedom, an organization which would not be too far removed from the Hitler Youth in another time, another place. Having been a member of the YAF for a bit in my naive youth, I can recall how they shared the exceptionalist, imperialist and paranoid view that the Commies were on the verge of taking over the world, that 'freedom' must be defended to the last dead Asian, and that, of course, God was on our side. They were huge supporters of the Vietnam War, Nixon and Reagan, and nothing has changed now. American war-mongering is still sacred to the YAF. So Kudos to Ron Paul for being enlightened enough to force them to reveal their reactionary nature.|
