Matt Johnson is whining about Ron Paul’s non-interventionism and opposition to foreign aid.
Philip Giraldi responds at TAC.
According to Giraldi, Johnson is an Obama supporter. All the “conservatives” who support foreign interventionism should note how Johnson’s interventionism naturally springs from his default internationalism. It makes sense, however misguided it may be. Conservatives who distrust the UN, are jealous of American sovereignty, etc. but also think America must police the world, are working at cross purposes. Their position lacks the internal consistency of Mr. Johnson’s even though they get it half right.
I do agree with one thing Mr. Johnson wrote however: “Ron Paul is one of the most reactionary candidates in recent history…” Darn right! That’s why we love him. In our sad society, enforcing the Constitution is reactionary.
