Awww. Did you get your feelings hurt yesterday? Wanna cookie?
Abolitionists became part of the Republican Party. Bad analogy. You're one to talk of moral standards. Libertarians have no morals. They believe in a free love, free drug society. Try again.
Libertarians: clueless.
I hardly think Russians are more fond of Putin because of America. You give us too much credit. They're more fond of him because he's doing what he's supposed to do - which is, look out for the best interests of his own country. That is what American foreign policy is lacking these days. We're so worried about what others might think that we have failed to recognize what actions are in our own best interests. This is the lesson of the French/American alliance of the late 1700's. At this point in time, we're more concerned with winning a worldwide popularity contest than truly thinking through what will benefit us the most.
Yeah, but at least Winston Churchill went on to accomplish something. That cannot be said for Ron Paul.
The French Revolution was indirectly caused by the political ideas of the American Revolution. The intervention in America did not cause the financial stress, but the CONTINUED war with Britain. The British and French had battled worldwide for many decades, including the branch of the war that we label the French and Indian War. There was a temporary break in the conflict, but then we invited the French to join us in battling Britain, and it started back up. One of the reasons for the American Revolution was because Britain expected us to help pay for the French and Indian War through taxes, which we directly benefited from. Please note that we switched sides during the conflict - at first, we allied ourselves with Britain because it was in our own best interests. Then we switched and sided with the French - again, because it was in our own best interests. So, for all you libertarians that like to claim that the Founders were against entangling ourselves with other nations, please note that we were very happy to do so from the very beginning, when it suited our purpose. Your re-interpretation of history doesn't change the fact that you don't have any idea what you're talking about. Human nature, my friends, is what you lack understanding in.
Oh? Common enemy you say? Well, France was the common enemy of both England and the colonies just a few short years before the Revolution. Here's another one for you - wasn't Saddam a common enemy to all those who invaded Iraq in 2003?
Ron Paul ran as a Republican. Too bad he didn't have the guts to run as a Libertarian. Wonder why that is? Afraid he would LOSE? LMAO
Doesn't do a thing for me. What - having trouble refuting what I said?
The "Founders" seemed pretty eager for France to totally meddle in their affairs when then sent Ben Franklin to Paris to get their help in the Revolution.
Blah, blah, blah. As I said, liberals and libertarians have not a clue when it comes to human nature.
