“My policy has been, and will continue to be, while I have the honor to remain in the administration of the government, to be upon friendly terms with, but independent of, all the nations of the earth. To share in the broils of none. To fulfil our own engagements. To supply the wants, and be carriers for them all: Being thoroughly convinced that it is our policy and interest to do so.” _George Washington
Clear advocacy of nonintervention, peace, and free trade by George Washington. Why is it that so many Republicans, even from the “Tea Party” who claim to want to defend our constitution and go back to the time of our nation’s founding are also the quickest to advocate sanctions and even war against people that have never attacked the United States?
Do they seriously think that George Washington would have agreed with their “Containment” of Communism or Radical Islam halfway around the world? Do you really think he would have supported Zionism? It is very clear by this quote that he would not have.
