I Guess I Slip

OUT OF THE WOOKIE suit at the shoreline. Because I disagree with Ron Paul that we should cut off all foreign aid. I believe we should aid foreign countries. We should aid those that permit their citizens at least the freedom we have here. We should aid pluralistic societies, societies that permit freedom of conscience, speech, assembly, association, the right of self-defense, against self-incrimination, against unreasonable search and seizure…

In short, we should be encouraging the spread of our own values in the world by directing our foreign aid in that direction.

We should not, as Ron says, be robbing our own poor to enrich tyrants and bandits in despotic regimes because they suck up to our diplomats in the right manner.

But then, I’ve never seen anything wrong with the idea of a Pax Americana.
