96. I posted the entire spech with commentary on the Hannity site today
And only ONE wackjob who is trying his best to completely discredit Ron Paul has responded. The Rethugs will not touch this speech or Ron Paul because it is so against their beliefs that they cannot risk this speedbump growing within the Congress. Bet "Toxic" Tom Delay is in a strait jacket right now he's so angry.

The one paragraph from the speech which rings true:

I realize that all conservatives are not neoconservatives, and all neocons dont necessarily agree on all pointswhich means that in spite of their tremendous influence, most Members of Congress and those in the administration do not necessarily take their marching orders from the AEI or Richard Perle. But to use this as a reason to ignore what neoconservative leaders believe, write about it and agitate forwith amazing success I might point outwould be at our own peril. This country still allows open discoursethough less everydayand we who disagree should push the discussion and expose those who drive our policies. It is getting more difficult to get fair and balanced discussion on the issues, because it has become routine for the hegemons to label those who object to preemptive war and domestic surveillance as traitors, unpatriotic and un-American. The uniformity of support for our current foreign policy by major and cable-news networks should concern every American. We should all be thankful for CSPAN and the internet.
