Hear Seavey on "Ron Paul Radio"

If all goes as planned, you can hear me talk about Ron Paul on Ron Paul Radio, the daily — daily! — broadcast about the Paul campaign, just launched on the Web radio station GCN, which you can hear by clicking on a player option here: http://www.gcnlive.com/listenlive.htm

I should be on between 6pm and 7 Eastern time (5 and 6 Central, etc.) tomorrow, Wednesday the 8th — listen for me at about twenty minutes past the hour.

Scroll down to my prior two blog entries to see why they think I’d have something to say about Ron Paul.

Irony note: the host’s name is Steven Vincent, and a more hawkish reporter by that name, who I met, died in Iraq two years ago, unfortunately.

Is there an archive of the show anywhere?

Eventually, the archives will apparently be here (for subscribers, who I can’t imagine have to pay much):


In the interim, know that I tried to make the point that despite Paul being “the antiwar candidate,” he should appeal to moderates-on-military-matters such as me and even to hawks if, as they usually claim to, they also care about other issues such as drastically cutting the size of government, which only Paul, of all major-party candidates, seems highly likely to do if elected — all the while remaining a humble servant of the Constitution rather than a demagogue with a vision (whether left or right).

Paul’s position is clearly the “moderate” on “military matters” – bring the troops here and defend our own country. If a World War is declared, go fight it and win it. Iraq has lasted longer than it took to defeat Hitler – and he had a hell of a lot more going for his army than Hussein or Al Qaeda, or both combined.

Increasingly, I think the libertarian position is a centrist position (perhaps surprising). It can unite people from all sides, all agendas. At least Paul would force a national dialog about what to do – something Congress and Bush have consistently refused to listen to, or even actively discourage / clamp down on.
