    i'm pretty much with him on foreign policy. i would change it in this way : when another country sees the US coming, they will know we are bringing food, medicine, and technology.

    Yes they're the same Fails. Phase 1 fail Clean Break, Phase 2 Nation Building, Phase 3 Blame everyone else/war weariness.

    Phase 3 :

    They're also dreaming up new political titles like 'neo-libertarian' and 'neo-isolationist' as peace could be dangerous.

    Ron Paul's "No Foreign Policy Institute" would be named more aptly.
    Yep, his foreign policy is that other countries simply don't exist.

    Yes. Jefferson said that in 1801, which was a couple years before he declared America's first war. Being neutral was, and is, never a viable real life possibility in foreign policy; the 'Founders' never achieved it, and never practiced it, despite the citing of isolated quotes and speeches they made as politicians.

    Was there an actual rebuttal in this rant? What does this have to do with isolationism vs non-interventionism?

    You clearly don't understand the basics of isolationism.

    Nice try, but no cigar. What's hilarious is that, when asked what Paul's position is on international relations, the only response is that he believes in trade and diplomacy. Brilliant. So does every reasonably intelligent 7th grader. You Libertarians need to come up with something other than personal greed and isolationism as your philosophy.
