Our founding and our success for many years was based on the principle that it is the government's duty to "secure the national defense". In other words to "protect the individual rights of American citizens". We became unamerican when we starting interpreting that as nation building and international police force. By this standards, the Libertarians are true to America. The neocons are overtly anti-american.
On his recent trip abroad, Mitt Romney observed an American taboo by not criticizing President Obama's military policy. But before his trip, he made his position clear. Obama has "exposed the military to cuts that no one can justify," Romney said.

He meant that unless Congress intervenes, Pentagon spending will be cut by more than $500 billion over 10 years under the (bipartisan) budget sequestration scheduled for January. This terrifies those who fear that limiting the growth of the military-industrial complex will leave us less safe.

But is that true? Even if $500 billion is actually cut, America still will spend...
