I heard that he was telling Canada that it should be built.  Hasn't it already infringed on private property rights?

It has. He might not know about it.

The Keystone XL pipeline can be built without violating private property rights.

Interesting. I wonder why he supports that.

Assuming he knows about the property rights violations, he may be in favor of it because foreign oil means foreign military entanglements.

Eminent domain isn't unconstitional and as far as I know Ron Paul is a constitutionalist ex-congressman, and not an internet forum anarchist.

True. He's also pro-income tax, which is in the 16th amendment.

Eminent domain is in the Bill of Rights, whereas the 16th amendment was never trully ratified.
