I obviously disagree.

My "position" is that we should have a more non-interventionist foreign policy. You jumped to a giant unreasonable conclusion in thinking that blowback is somehow a logical cause for pre-emptive strikes. Our policy in the middle east and else where IS the pre-emptive strike. Our sanctions on Iran and North Korea are acts of war which we shouldn't have made anyway. I realize that the public is often too disengaged to see that, but that doesn't make my position dangerous. Lets just say for arguments sake that 9/11 was really blowback by middle eastern terrorist s in response to our decades of intervention. Should we lie about that and say it was really our own government because if it were really the terrorists, that would be "dangerous"?

Free market capitalism isn't right for America because it works better. It's right because it's free (and it works better).
