- Donald Trump sends "Thank you card"- h/t Goldzilla

- There will absolutely be NO FED HIKE between now and December.-
-UPDATE: Johnson Responds HERE
One characteristic of libertarians is their America first approach to politics. The Monroe Doctrine is applicable. As are phrases like:
- We have no business interfering in other countries affairs.
- Who are we to oppose our will on foreign nations.
- We have plenty to fix here.
Ideas > Idealogy > Dogma > Empty Shell?
And while that may be true, it does not excuse a leader from knowing what is actually going on in the rest of teh world. It would seem that many Libertarians are still living in Plato's cave. unaware of the world around them.
Any idea, when adhered to without understanding its original purpose will in time de-evolve into a dogmatic version. A hollowed out husk of the idea it once championed. And Gary Johnson may just represent the Libertarian party's one trick dogmatic position.
What is Aleppo?
Today Mike Barnicle (MB) of Morning Joe had a few questions for Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson (GJ). Joe Scarborough (JS) jumps in as well.
Source: Talking Points Memo
MB: “What would you do if you were elected about Aleppo?”
GJ:“And what is Aleppo?”
MB: “You’re kidding,” Barnicle said.
GJ: “No,” Johnson replied.
MB: “Aleppo is in Syria. It’s the epicenter of the refugee crisis,”
GJ: “Okay got it, got it,” Johnson said. “Well with regard to Syria I do think that it’s a mess. I think the only way that we deal with Syria is to join hands with Russia to diplomatically bring that to an end.”
JS: “Aleppo is the center of a lot of people’s concerns across the planet about the terrible humanitarian crisis that is unfolding not only in Syria, but especially in Aleppo,” You asked ‘What is Aleppo?’ Do you really think that foreign policy is so insignificant that somebody running for president of the United States shouldn’t even know what Aleppo is, where Aleppo is, why Aleppo is so important?”
GJ: “I do understand Aleppo and I understand the crisis that is going on,” “But when we involve ourselves militarily, when we involve ourselves in these humanitarian issues, issues, we end up with a situation that in most cases is not better.”
And people ask me why I am a closet Libertarian. At least Ron Paul, aka Dr. No, is aware of what he doesn't want to get involved in.
