But Donald Trump did (PDF):
Trump recently gave a speech on Radical Islam. In it, I can identify dozens of things that make him no different than Hillary Clinton – in other words, a tough-talking war-monger. However, there a few things he said which make him different. I only care about one of these:
I also believe that we could find common ground with Russia in the fight against ISIS. They too have much at stake in the outcome in Syria, and have had their own battles with Islamic terrorism.
Any “common ground” to be found with Russia will be a good thing, a building block for more common ground. The more “common ground” found with Russia, the less chance for glowing-in-the-dark ground for all of us.
Do I believe him? I believe he is sincere. I cannot say if he will be able to achieve anything like this in the face of a military-industrial complex that wants the opposite.
Do I wish he would say something else, something more? Certainly. But Ron Paul isn’t an option in this election.
