    far from it.

    Our refusal to join early on in both WW1 and WW2 allowed us to quickly surpass previous powers.


    So if you don't invade other countries you starve to death. Gotcha.
    I doubt you will find hatuey willing to debate that throw away comment. he certainly doesn't agree with it enough to allow me to cite him on it in my sig line, as he comes off looking like an ass by anybody that reads it.

    I really think it is.

    Prior to WW1, we were becoming an extremely rich nation, but not in comparison to powers in Europe.

    After WW2, we clearly surpassed those nations, and the two factors most in play for this is we did not spend as much capital on the war efforts, and our dollar (still backed internationally by gold) became the reserve currency used by all international trade.

    Right, but your contention was that our success was due to avoiding war for a period of time which isn't really accurate at least not like the narrative you paint. For example in 1914 the US had excluding the fullest extent of the British Empire and even then it is debatable the largest economy on the planet, so the first point isn't true. In World War II we gained some time in preparing our military and reorienting our industry for war, but I'm not sure what you are getting at.

    I'm not following your response, specifically the bold part. Is this worded as you want it to read?

    Would like to respond, but not sure what you tried to say.

    The same Birther websites like Alex Jones and WorldNetDaily also say flouride in the water is a communist plot. Straight out of Dr Strangelove! Theres an awful lot of race baiting on those sites.

    Why should Mexicans, Muslims, or Arab Americans be singled out for persecution in his news coverage, or blacks persecuted with Obama/Kenyan stories?

    Likewise, the U.S. Constution forbids such persecution, and Right Wingers are always bring up "defending the Constitution," right?


    I actually think the Birthers and people like the Koran burning preacher Terry Jones from Missouri are part of a larger PSYOP to appeal to the lowest common denominator, bigots. Organized nuttery via the Republican Party is nothing new. Jerry Falwells Clinton Chronicles, Paula Jones and the WTC mosque protest were bankrolled by GOP Elites, and the Republican machinery.

    According to Paul, convention planners offered the Texas congressman the chance to speak under two conditions: that he gave a speech pre-approved by Romney's campaign, and that he give a "full-fledged" endorsement of Mitt Romney.
    “It wouldn’t be my speech," Paul said. "That would undo everything I’ve done in the last 30 years. I don’t fully endorse him for president."

    What I am saying is interventionism is a part of being/becoming a superpower. Of course it helped our position by avoiding a lot of the mass destruction of the world wars.
