It is the Interventionists Who Are Isolationists <- Ron Paul


Each of the last five American presidents, treating the evil Egyptian dictator like a friend, thereby helping isolate America in the eyes of the world

 

It is not we non-interventionists who are isolationsists.

The real isolationists are those who impose sanctions and embargoes on countries and peoples across the globe because they disagree with the internal and foreign policies of their leaders.

The real isolationists are those who choose to use force overseas to promote democracy, rather than seek change through diplomacy, engagement, and by setting a positive example.

Ron Paul, I advocate the same foreign policy the Founding Fathers would, Union Leader (2007)

Rob from the Poor and Give to the Rich <- Douglas Casey


The hundreds of billions wasted on foreign aid go straight into the pockets of the tyrants

That’s where all the foreign aid (which might be defined as a transfer from poor people in rich countries to rich people in poor countries) went as well.

The U.S. government still squanders about $20 billion a year this way, and European governments spend proportionally even more; it’s all gone straight down a giant rathole.
