Getting the military out of all the countries we are in would cut the spending so much that we could get rid of the income tax and replace it with nothing. per ron paul


If liberals think we're unpopular now, just try that one.

And lead to yet another World War. Most of us learned how bad Isolationism is after World War II. It seems a few have forgotten the lessons.

Why it's good to have people older than 30. Half the people in this forum don't remember what USSR stands for.

Ron Paul isn't calling for the US to be isolationist, just for us to stop being the world police and bribing countries to be good etc.

Military Isolationism is what I am talking about. Its a very bad policy that has been proven wrong in the crucible of history. The world is integrated to a far greater extent now than in the time of George Washington. Even in 1812, what happened in Europe affected us. And now, the effect is even greater and quicker. The presence of US troops in Europe and SE Asia has prevented World Wars from breaking out. Any conflicts that have happened have been minor in nature (at least in comparison to World War I and II. If the US withdraws military forces, then we allow the same situations that existed prior to World War I.


Should we be policing the entire world? Probably not, but we should definitely continue to keep troops in areas of significance.

yeah the last time there was a world war there were several major dictatorships that might have had something to do with it.

We have troops in Germany, and several other countries that don't fit the profile.
