Ron Paul, Champion of God’s Peace. Book review of Ron Paul’s antiwar book “Swords into Plowshares” by Lew Rockwell at LewRockwell.com, read here.
In February 1967 I was drafted into the US Army. As a conscientious objector I was trained as a combat medic. Fortunately I never had to go to Viet Nam. At the time it never occurred to me that the government was lying, that they would lie to take this country to war and kill 50,000+ American soldiers and several million Viet Nam soldiers and civilians. If I had known then what I know now I hope that I would have fled to Canada and asked for political asylum. Even as a conscientious objector you are still contributing to the war. Even just paying taxes you are still contributing to war! They can not do this without us. What if they had a war and nobody came?
