Ron Paul Trashes Newt Over Vietnam: 'He Chose Not To Go, But He Will Send Our Kids To War'

Speaking with Fox News’s Megyn Kelly on Thursday, Ron Paul went after Republican frontrunner Newt Gingrich for skipping out on fighting in Vietnam but continuing to advocate for war. “There was one other issue I personally found annoying,” Paul observed. “He’s probably as aggressive with the military as anybody. He supports all the wars in the Middle East, a thousand times more than if I would but in the 1960s when I was drafted in the military, he got several deferments. He chose not to go, but he will send our kids to war.”

“He said one person wouldn’t make a difference,” Paul continued. “He didn’t know how he could make a difference. I see that as important information. People should know that and it reflects on him.”
