Ron Paul: McCain, Obama ‘no difference’


Ron Paul

Congressman Ron Paul says there is ‘no difference’ between US presidential candidates, Democrat Barack Obama and Republican John McCain.

“Their foreign policies are identical,” the Texas congressman said in an interview with CNN on Thursday. “There’s no difference.”

“They want more troops in Afghanistan. They want to send more support to Georgia to protect the oil line there. Neither one says bring home the troops from Iraq from the bases — you know the bases are going to stay there, the embassy as big as the Vatican, that’s going to remain. So their foreign policies are exactly the same,” he added.

The former Republican presidential candidate said that the two candidates are both threats to the US national interests.

“We create the threats! Why are we on the borders of Russia provoking the Russians? I mean, the Georgians initiated the military attack against these enclaves where there were mostly Russians… It’s a fact that we’re over there that we create these crises.”

When asked if he endorses any of the candidates, Paul replied, “I’ve endorsed neither one and we will not endorse either the two top candidates.”
