I’ve long been a fan of Ralph Nader, seeing his activism as generally positive over the years. Since fighting for seat belts 50 years ago, he’s now fighting for America to be a peaceful nation. He has roundly condemned both George W Bush and now Barack Obama for their international warfare. He stated that Obama is even worse than Bush, using drones to go into any nation he wishes to do something. National sovereignty does not seem to mean as much to the USA as it once did.
George Washington’s desire that we have no entangling alliances, and to be friends to all is still a very good policy. It is time we stop being the world’s invasive police force, return to being a good neighbor in the world, and allow our freedom to inspire freedom elsewhere.
