Re: The Official 2008 Presidential Election Thread
Hmmm, I dunno.
I mean, true, a policy of total non-intervention under any circumstance, ever, wouldn't be the greatest policy in the world. And I agree that the world shouldn't just sit by and allow mass genocide of innocent people, and shit like that.
But at the same time, I would hope a government would look out for it's own citizen's well-being first and foremost. It really shouldn't risk lives of it's people needlessly waging wars that don't effect us, or spending money that could be better spent on it's own citizens to needlessly police other countries. Of course exceptions should apply; but they should be just that: exceptions, not the rule. Non-interventionism really isn't that bad of an idea.
