Granted, Democrats may be distressed that Barack Obama has not performed better as an anti-war president ("Ron Paul: The anti-war candidate," Jan. 2). But before people jump ship and vote for Ron Paul because he is "anti-war," they should check out the positions he has taken on other subjects on his website.

Congressman Paul is anti-abortion, anti-gun control, anti-Federal Reserve (and pro-gold-standard), anti-immigration, anti-EPA (he favors drilling for oil by any and all means everywhere on the North American continent) and anti-health-care reform.

When you look at the whole package, you might well not like what you see.
