If Ron Paul’s supporters always seem angry, they sometimes have a reason.

Last night’s GOP debate featured foreign policy. For 90 minutes the candidates fielded questions and declared their positions on Pakistan, Iran, China, nuclear arms proliferation, American forces in Afghanistan, and other matters of pressing concern. CBS aired only 60 minutes of that, which was a shame, and of those 60 minutes, Dr. Paul was given exactly …

89 seconds.

You need not be a Paul supporter to recognize the petty injustice of that. Paul has yet to poll much above ten-percent among Republicans, but he’s polled that consistently, doing better than Rick Santorum, Jon Huntsman, and Michele Bachmann on a regular basis and better than Rick Perry since Perry’s flameout. And yet he regularly gets relatively little media attention, and has received the least air time of any candidate who’s participated in the entire series of debates.

It was especially unfortunate that the public heard so little of Paul during this last debate. His positions are the most at variance with the rest of the pack, offering genuine alternatives to policies that the other candidates take as given. If his dovish views on American military power don’t set well with his generally hawkish party, he brings some principled arguments to the table that they’d do well to listen to.
