Oliver Stone favors libertarian Republican Ron Paul over Barak Obama for president!
Speaking to Ed Rampell of Rock Celler magazine, Stone explained:
Rock Celler: In Our History you ask if there's "a potential wild card in an internal economic collapse of the empire"? Is America an empire? And if so, do you foresee the fall of the empire?
Stone: Yes. Yes, both. I don't think it's a wild card, I think it's a given. There's no way that we can continue this spending spree.

Because he's the only one of anybody who's saying anything intelligent about the future of the world.
How do we go on being who we are? We have an identity crisis here. But as long as we keep running this fantasy through our minds that we can dominate history, it's not a wild card, it's a given!
