Congressman Ron Paul has been outspoken on the Egyptian revolution and the departure of Hosni Mubarak.
The Egyptian military has now dissolved parliament and suspended the constitution in an effort to calm protesters who still claim that foreign powers are influencing the pace of progress there.
Ron Paul, who is a possibly candidate for President in 2012, stated that the U.S. should not be using money and and force to gain influence in foreign nations.
He said that the U.S. was propping up a puppet dictatorship in Mubarak, claiming it was a 30 year mistake and a failure of U.S. foreign policy.
Many claim Mubarak and his family have amassed a fortune of over $70 billion dollars from monetary aid given to the military in Egypt under Mubarak’s rule.
The congressman also claims that the United States foreign policy is adding to the devaluing of the U.S. economically and politically, lowering the value of the dollar, and adding to an out of control budget deficit that the U.S. cannot afford.
He added that our actions in Egypt and around the world have not made the U.S. safer.
Ron Paul has not yet come out to say he will run for President in the U.S. in 2012.
