Thomas Jefferson, foreign policy

"Peace, Commerce, and Honest Friendship with All Nations-Entangling Alliances with None."

Thomas Jefferson

Such was spoken on Thomas Jeffersons first inaugural address (and a popular quote on the back of all new american magazines). Our founders knew we couldn't stay strong as a nation if we were engaged in other nations affairs. Mr. Jefferson wouldn't have sent us into Iraq, Afganistan, or all these other nations our current government wants to conquer. These wars have nothing to do with maintaining our freedom, and everything to do with setting up the new world order. Our founders wouldn't have this relationship we have with Israel. That nation would be expected to make it's own way in this world without our 400 billion plus dollars a year to support their military. It's not about being enemies with any nation. It's about not fighting wars we have no interest in, and no national security threat. What ever happened to trying to find Osama Bin Ladin? Or are we too busy building a new Iraq, and protecting it from Iran? Hmmm, I wonder where were going to go next?
