Did CBS host a GOP Debate, or a Mob Commission?

Last night I was watching the CBS Commander In Chief debate where the GOP candidates were supposed to have a discussion about foreign policy. However, rather than a debate, it seemed like they were all in total agreement. They all just couldn't wait to get their hands on the reigns of power so they could control all of the various countries of the world. What's more disturbing is that they seemed totally morally disconnected from the actions they were suggesting, as if they were crime bosses getting together to talk about how best to control the various parts of a city.

All but one GOP Candidate on the stage outlined a series of morally corrupt and anti-liberty measures they would take: Perry said he would start all of his bribes at zero, and make each country explain to us why we should give them any money, and what they are going to do for us. Santorum said that he would order the execution of an American citizen without a trial if he felt like it, and he was glad we "took him out" in reference to a recent case of an American being assassinated by the government. Romney said we should raise tariffs and enact sanctions against countries that don't behave as we wish; an act of war in itself that usually ends up hurting the people of a country, not the leaders. Newt said he'd torture the hell out of anyone he felt like if he thought it would keep us "safe." "Take em out," "make them earn their bribe money," "starve them to death," and "torture the hell out of em;" these are the actions the GOP candidates were talking about taking if they were elected president.

To me this is absolutely amazing. If I didn't know any better, I'd think this was a mafia movie, not a political debate. I can just see Michael Corleone plotting out his assassinations and extortion rackets at an old oak table in a smoke filled room. Unfortunately, whereas the mafia can only use their thugs to enforce these things, the government has the luxury of forcing all of us to suffer the consequences of their actions, and these clueless GOP candidates think that repeating the follies of the past that have caused massive worldwide wars is the right way to go.... except one:

Ron Paul only got about 1.5 minutes out of an hour long "debate" which was really more of just a pep rally for statism and war. He made some good points, but he just didn't get enough time to say what really needed to be said, and to offer a counter-point to the stances of everyone else on the stage. It was an extremely one-sided affair, and an extremely disgusting one.

If we don't elect Ron Paul, then we will be going to war with Iran, and probably a few more folks, and we will go bankrupt. This is not hyperbole, this is just the way things are. Please people, please vote for Paul!
