    And that is not inconsistent with what Senator Paul has proposed.

    How do you know that he doesn't support sending Canadian troops into harm's way? FFS.

    Such is one of the purposes of the word "if."

I supported Canadian troops being used against Libya. And I now support Canadian troops being used in Iraq and Ukraine.

    The difference perhaps between you and I is that my country and government doesn't stick its nose in other country's affairs unless asked to help and when asked we seldom if ever refuse to assist. There isn't a single war in my lifetime that Canada precipitated, but we don't shirk our moral obligation to help those who need it. It's probably why Canada is one of the most respected countries in the world and perhaps why many Americans, when traveling abroad, will wear a Canadian flag pin to avoid trouble.
    That's the difference between our governments, but not between us personally. I have long contended that America would be much better off leaving the affairs of other countries to the people who live there, and I put very little weight in any kind of "moral obligation" to do otherwise.

    How does Paul propose to pay for this? Gold doubloons? Conservatives are quick to whine and say what should be done, but they sure won't rasie taxes on the rich to do it. Case in point: Bush's trillion dollar unfunded wars, which we're still paying off.

    How did Obama pay for the escalation in Afghanistan?

    How did Obama pay for the bombing of Libya?

    How did Obama pay for the bombing of ISIS already?

    It may come as a surprise to you, but there aren't enough rich to soak for every idea that may pop into your head.
