Neocon Definition of Isolationism

Neocon Definition of Isolationism
December 26, 2011
By J. Michael Warner

Just what is the definition of isolationism or an isolationist? Why do those in the media as well as many politicians, Neocon and liberal, label Ron Paul as an isolationist or say that Ron Paul is in favor of isolationism?

Before I get into the Neocon definition of isolationism let’s take a look at what Wikipedia has to say, the definition of isolationism is:

Isolationism is the policy or doctrine of isolating one’s country from the affairs of other nations by declining to enter into alliances, foreign economic commitments, international agreements, etc., seeking to devote the entire efforts of one’s country to its own advancement and remain at peace by avoiding foreign entanglements and responsibilities.

Non-interventionism – Political rulers should avoid entangling alliances with other nations and avoid all wars not related to direct territorial differences (self-defense).
Protectionism – There should be legal barriers to control trade and cultural exchange with people in other states.

Going by Wikipedia’s definition of isolationism, it does not sound like a bad thing to me.

Ron Paul believes that we should trade freely with all nations and not get into any wars that do not directly involve the defense of our country, this United States of America. For this, the media slams Ron Paul every chance they get. Other politicians including Republicans and Democrats treat Ron Paul as if he is naive and has no understanding of foreign affairs.

As I write this Ron Paul is running for President in 2012. The Republicans that Ron Paul is running against ridicule his foreign policy ideas saying it reeks of isolationism. These candidates as well as the media use the word isolationism to try and fool the American people. They want to fool everyone into believing that Ron Paul believes in a brand of isolationism that would mean America would seal itself off from any dealings with all foreign countries. Even though Ron Paul has never said anything remotely similar to this, that is what they would have you believe. Why?

Why would Newt Gingrich, Mitt Romney, Rick Santorum, Michelle Bachmann and most people in the media label Ron Paul as a believer in isolationism as if it is a bad thing? All the afore mentioned Republicans profess to be good Christians, followers of Jesus, God fearing men and a woman that love their country. In reality they are power hungry Neocons that care more about power and prestige than they do about God and country. The first Commandment given by God is: man can not kill another man! Jesus taught that violence was not the way. Jesus never condoned killing for any reason, period. Most people, Christian or not will at least admit that killing except in self defense is a really bad thing!

Neocons love to kill in order to get their way. Want oil or any other resource? Kill the leaders that lay claim to the land were it is and install puppet leaders. The puppets get tired of listening to the Devil American politicians and they get killed, new puppets get installed. Sometimes the foreign barbarians get to far out of hand and American soldiers are used. Kill a few hundred thousand of the “enemy”, crush their spirit, take their land and their natural resources and give them a puppet dictator and a few baubles, that will keep them in line for a while.

The Neocons definition of isolationism is: Ron Paul will not let us kill everyone that gets in our way!

Ron Paul appears to be the only practicing follower of Jesus among the candidates. Ron Paul believes that we should trade freely with all nations and treat all people with respect. Ron Paul does not believe we should wage war unless it is for the defense of our country. Rick Santorum acts like it more of a sin to be gay than it is to kill other men. What kind of sick twisted pervert would think that way?

For thousands of years rich men have declared wars and the masses have fought and died in the wars. For thousands of years this was the case because men were ruled by Kings that deemed it so. America is the land of the free, the home of the brave. We American men and women do not owe allegiance to any King or potentate, so why do we continually vote into office power hungry political psychopaths that will then send us off to war in order that they will then become even more rich and powerful as our sons and daughters become worm food?

Are we going to let our country continue the slide into tyranny? Or will we elect a President in 2012 that understands that our Bill of Rights, Declaration of Independence and Constitution actually mean something, something important! A President that will make America once again, a light unto the world!

Elect Ron Paul 2012!

Neocon Isolationism

The Neocons and their cheerleader presstitutes make lots of money off of war. Isolationism in the form of free trade without entangling alliances is not as profitable. A Ron Paul win is a win for all of America as well as the world.

Why is Ron Paul being

Why is Ron Paul being crucified? He speaks the truth:

President Thomas Jefferson extended Washington's ideas in his March 4, 1801 inaugural address: "peace, commerce, and honest friendship with all nations, entangling alliances with none." Jefferson's phrase "entangling alliances" is, incidentally, sometimes incorrectly attributed to Washington.

With respect to the aforementioned point:

George Washington's farewell address is often cited as laying the foundation for a tradition of American non-interventionism:

"The great rule of conduct for us, in regard to foreign nations, is in extending our commercial relations, to have with them as little political connection as possible. ..." He went on about Europe, yet the world was a much larger place then.

I always advocate anyone talking about RP do this:

If talking foreign policy, point out off the bat that the Romney/Ging/Santorum/Bachmann push an outdated isolationist worldview, since being at constant degrees of war and/or sanctions with multiple nations excludes the possibility of both trade and proper diplomacy.

I wish RP himself were aggressive about this too.


It would seem to me that if we want to win new supporters we need to fight against the main argument being put forward by Ron Paul detractors. The idea that Ron Paul is interested in walling us off from the rest of the world is ridiculous but that is what the media and the RINO's are saying.
