    Rand paul the Neocon. That didn't take long. Well at least he didn't give a bribe like his dad.

    Do neocons normally seek authorization from congress? is engaging a terrorist group a war, or simply an act of anti-terrorism? does the threat specifically, present a threat to the US? Is it a neocon thing to do, to actually seek solutions prescribed by the constitution?

    and judging by your previous posts, you were never planning to vote for him to begin with, and yet you attack him without any real reason or vice.

    Good luck! Both destroying IS militarily, and becoming president now that you said that.

    So going after a terrorist organization makes one a 'neocon?'

    It's not unreasonable, in my view, to expect that the 2016 Presidential primaries, at least on the Republican side, and again in the general election, will focus to a large extent on who among the candidates is going to reengage America in a serious way in world affairs. The foolish Obama experiment has proven to be a disaster and it's not impossible to believe that before Obama's term expires the terrorists will be successful in bringing destruction to American soil once again. The best way to insure against that is to bring the fight to them in their home base.
    What's canada's military response to ISIS been? Oh yeah, NOTHING. How about you worry about getting YOUR country off their asses and fight instead of the U.S. footing the majority of the money and troops eh?

    Which attack did "Dubya" fail to get congressional authorization for?

    Harper: ISIS like the Taliban | Fort Erie Times

    Canada is not a super power nor do we act like one. Canada did not get the US into Iraq a decade ago and even though Canada didn't support the invasion, Canada provided logistical and other resources in the Persian Gulf that assisted the US led forces in that effort. Canada has been an unwavering ally of the US, often even when it sees the US making boneheaded moves.

    Canada is also supporting the NATO efforts in Ukraine having already sent troops and fighter jets to Lithuania in preparation of defense of that country.

    Not sure I get the need of some in America to belittle the friends of America.
