Ron Paul on Habeas Corpus

The only two Republican Candidates for president that I could have ever seen myself voting for were John McCain and Ron Paul (I liked, and still like Huckabee, but definitely not as a leader of this country). But one thing I'm very surprised about is McCain's blatant undermining of habeas corpus. Here is a pretty good analysis of the issue (and those issues surrounding them) by Ron Paul.

McCain, in contrast, called the court's ruling "one of the worst decisions in history. It opens up a whole new chapter and interpretation of our Constitution.''

Obama, on the other hand, is committed to restoring habeas corpus to detainees, further commenting that it is an important step toward "reestablishing our credibility as a nation committed to the rule of law, and rejecting a false choice between fighting terrorism and respecting habeas corpus"
