We cannot repeat the lessons of the 1930s when the United States of America stood by while bad things happened in the world.”
~John McCain, June 19 on ABC’s “This Week”
Wherever there is injustice the United States must intervene, militarily if necessary. Where there is hunger we must provide food. Where there is poverty we must provide financial assistance. Where there are political struggles we must choose the winners. We cannot let bad things happen. If there is a tyrant, we must overthrow him. If there is a king, we must demand elections. Where there are too many people we must provide contraception and legal abortion. Where there is too much development or industry or production of energy we must demand Environmental Controls and stamp it out. We must cure disease, control the climate, and right wrongs. If we provide these things for our own people, how can we refuse it to the World? Certainly we can borrow this money on the good faith and credit of future generations of Americans. And pay it back over the centuries after we balance the budget.
We cannot stand by while bad things happen and we must determine what is good or bad for the world by our political system, for until we have the New World Order we all so crave, there is only one World Governor and that is the United States of America. This is American Exceptionalism, dammit! Curses to you isolationists!Doris Grupa is Executive Director of Midstream Republicans of Washington
