Kentucky Republican Sen. Rand Paul called for “moderation” and “restraint” in international affairs during an address at the Heritage Foundation Wednesday, laying out what he called a “constitutionally conservative” foreign policy.
“I see the world as it is,” Paul declared. “I am a realist, not a neoconservative, nor an isolationist.”
The senator sought a middle ground between the non-interventionist foreign policy of his father, three-time presidential candidate and former Texas Republican Rep. Ron Paul, and the more hawkish views held by most Republicans.
