Conservative militarists bemoan Rand Paul's diplomatic foreign policy

"Career academics from pro-war, pro-intervention militarist outlets blanched at Paul’s advocacy for a constitutionally prudent, fiscally reasonable foreign policy. Writing for the National Review, Frederick Kagan of the American Enterprise Institute chastised Paul’s approach with alarmist threats and condescension.

"America’s foreign policy today is hardly one of militaristic, imperialistic determination to intervene. Apart from the evil “neocons” — virtually none of whom, it should be noted, have advocated attacking Iran, invading Syria or Yemen, or launching other adventures that Senator Paul seems so to fear — it is hard to understand against whom the senator is arguing."

Send all of the pro-war

Send all of the pro-war drumbeaters and their children to the front lines. It's only fair they get firsties.

Bump: Nice story to read.

I wish that she would have changed one word in the title.

"Conservative militarists bemoan Rand Paul's Constitutional foreign policy"

That would have made them into hypocrites from the very beginning.

Neo-Cons are showing their cowardice

Rand Paul seems to be resisting their attacks. What doesn't kill him makes him stronger.

It will help him in the primary. Plus it will show him who is friend and foe well in advance.

Tonight's speech will drive them crazy too!

An excerpt from tonight's speech from Rand Paul:

"Both parties have been guilty of spending too much, of protecting their sacred cows, of backroom deals in which everyone up here wins, but every taxpayer loses. It is time for a new bipartisan consensus. It is time Democrats admit that not every dollar spent on domestic programs is sacred. And it is time Republicans realize that military spending is not immune to waste and fraud."

Definitely not because I have insider access...

I've just been paying closer attention to Rand Paul due to my new job...

Rand Paul's staff has been posting pieces of it on his facebook account today:)
