How about no foreign aid to anybody? This is not excess money we have to freely give away. This money is either taxed from us, thereby hurting our economy, it is printed, thereby causing inflation and again hurting our economy, or it is obtained through borrowing, thereby indebting our children.

Whatever aid goes to Gaza is dwarfed by the aid we give to Israel. Kerry is not anti-Semitic. What are you a liberal? Don't pull the race card, argue your point with fact and logic.

Prager, you make some good points for not voting for the dems. However, you do not explain why we must vote for the republicans. In my eyes only a select few republicans in office respect the Constitution. My vote will go towards the individual who respects and follows the Constitution, and whose budget plan actually reduces spending (unlike most republicans who talk a big game but spend just the same as any other). This means I will vote either a Libertarian, republican, Constitution party, or other independent based on the qualities of the individual. I am long through voting for the "lesser of two evils" and regretting my vote. I will only vote for people I believe it.

In today's world being described as "Hawkish" pretty much means you are willing and eager to expand our military into more countries, conduct more military operations over seas, and this includes attacks on countries who have not attacked us (Iran, Syria, Russia).

Clearly, the root of the problem is not being addressed form either side. If you keep doing the same thing and it does not work, you must be willing to go back to the drawing board and think of a new solution.

Israel has already just about leveled Gaza. This is the reason some in Gaza continue to attack Israel. Your idea of a solution is the very thing that is encouraging more resistance and fighting.

Lets not also arm Syrian "moderates" in covert efforts to overthrow Assad. These arms and weapons have made it into the hands o ISIS. We are literally working against ourselves. The groups our CIA armed in Syria have already signed non-aggression pacts with ISIS. Our foreign policy sucks!

learn what?
I believe an accurate, unbiased assessment would conclude that ISIS is vastly more evil than the United States, though the United States is the greatest threat to peace in the world. The damage ISIS has caused is pennies compared to the damage the United States has caused around the world. At the same time, we have caused the greatest amount of good as well. Whereas, ISIS, I don't think they have caused any good. We can't be so arrogant to think that we bring peace and stability wherever we go.
We also place sanctions on countries who do not do what we say or who refuse to trade in US dollars. That is force, not influence. We most definitely have an empire.
We are already there (more and more difficult to justify wars). Our nation has been in a constant state of war for two decades (longer if you count covert acts of war). The world is not hurting due to a lack of war from the United States (what a silly assertion). But yes, I still believe we are the most benevolent super power, especially to our allies. But we should not discount the incredible amount of destruction and loss of life around the world that we have caused, as well.
