Oliver Stone: I Would Vote For Ron Paul Over Obama

“He’s the only one who’s saying anything intelligent about the world”

Acclaimed film director Oliver Stone, known for such masterpieces as Platoon, JFK and Born on the Fourth of July, has declared he would vote for Ron Paul over Barack Obama, if Paul could secure the 2012 GOP nomination.

Stone made the comments in an interview with Rock Cellar magazine, noting “I think in many ways the most interesting candidate — I’d even vote for him if he was running against Obama — is Ron Paul.”

“He’s the only one of anybody who’s saying anything intelligent about the future of the world.” Stone added.

When asked if an economic collapse would lead to the fall of the American “empire”, Stone responded “I think it’s a given.”

“There’s no way that we can continue this spending spree.” The Wall Street director added.

In 2008, Stone was an outspoken Obama supporter and donated the maximum amounts legally possible to the Obama campaign, calling the eventual president the “heir to John F. Kennedy.”

However, he now has a very different view of Obama.

“Obama… in welcoming home the troops was saying how we had achieved “stability, freedom and democracy” in Iraq. It was the same language that Bush used – and Obama was the guy who called Iraq a “dumb war.”” Stone said.

“So you tell me, what have we learned? Or who’s faking, or who’s kidding who? Why is it necessary for every candidate – except for Ron Paul – to pay obeisance to this hypocrisy that the U.S. is a good force in the world, and that it is the dominant force, and can be the policeman of the world? Since when? What gave us that right? The right of empire, the right of force?” Stone added.

Earlier this year Oliver Stone’s son, Sean, appeared exclusively on the Alex Jones show to discuss his father’s work, both their political views, and his own new film project titled Greystone.
