At one time, the Republican Party’s foreign policy was based on caution and American interest. After 9/11 Bush and the Wilsonian Progressives made nation building and democracy spreading the central tenet of the Republican Party. Any Conservatives who challenged this view was called an isolationist or anti-Semite. But many on the Right are no longer afraid and are speaking out.
Ran Paul outlined his foreign policy vision at the Heritage Foundation. He rejects nation building, wars for humanitarian purposes and staying out of conflicts not in our national interest. He rejects the choice in foreign policy is between Neoconservatism and Isolationism. This is a speech that Coolidge, Ike and Reagan would applaud.
Republicans should adopt Rand Paul’s foreign policy views.

We're not easily offended and don't want people to think they have to walk on eggshells around here (like at another place that shall remain nameless) but of course, there is a limit to everything.
