http://news.yahoo.com/oliver-stone-vote-ron-paul-over-obama-171902835.html Oliver Stone would vote for Ron Paul over Obama In an interview with Rock Cellar Magazine, director Oliver Stone said that he would support Ron Paul over Obama in the upcoming presidential elections. In his newest book, âOn History,â Stone discussed Americaâs current economy, saying that there is âa potential wild card in an internal economic collapse of the empire.â Stone called America an âempire,â saying that its current spending spree is responsible for the empireâs inevitable collapse. The only person that could potentially prevent this collapse, he said in the interview, is Ron Paul. âIn fact, I think in many ways the most interesting candidate �â Iâd even vote for him if he was running against Obama �â is Ron Paul,â he said. âHeâs the only one of anybody whoâs saying anything intelligent about the future of the world.â Stone went on to criticize Obamaâs comments when welcoming home the troops from Iraq. Obama had said that the U.S. had achieved âstability, freedom, and democracyâ in Iraq. âIt was the same language that Bush used,â Stone said, âand Obama was the guy who called Iraq a âdumb war.ââ Ron Paul is the only candidate, Stone said, who does not âpay obeisance to this hypocrisy that the U.S. is a good force in the world,â a fantasy that the U.S. cannot afford. Stone is also known for directing Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps, W., JFK, and Born on the Fourth of July.
