How Do Libertarians Sleep At Night?

On his radio show today, Dennis Prager says: “I want to know how leftists and libertarians sleep at night knowing the slaughter that will take place in Afghanistan if we leave?”

I’m not a leftist nor a libertarian and I have no position on how the United States should conduct itself in Afghanistan or Iraq, but I think the question is easily answered with a question — how does Dennis Prager sleep at night knowing the massive genocide in the Congo could be halted with U.S. intervention?

We could intervene all over the world to stop genocide and cost ourselves thousands of dead Americans and spend ourselves into bankruptcy.

We have to primarily make foreign policy decisions on the basis of what is good for America.

Today’s New York Times editorial twice calls Republicans “insurgents.”

According to Wikipedia: “An insurgency is an armed rebellion against a constituted authority (for example, an authority recognised as such by the United Nations) when those taking part in the rebellion are not recognised as belligerents.”


Prager H1: Chris Cuomo of ABC News tells his 1 million followers on Twitter that the Crusades and Islamic terror are morally equivalent. Really? What does a modern Catholic have to do with a Crusader? The Crusades were 1000 years ago… The NY Times hates judicial over reach when a judge overturns a policy that they like (stem cell research). But when a judge overturns a policy they don’t like (the traditional definition of marriage), that’s different story.… More NY Times: Conservatives are now labeled “insurgents.”

Prager H2: Independent candidate for Colorado Governor, Tom Tancredo, is torpedoing the chances of the Republican candidate, Dan Maes. To vote for Tancredo is to vote for the Democrat. This is third party “suicide” and incredibly self-destructive… Ironically, many Muslims outside the U.S. don’t think the mosque should be built at GZ… The CEO of Intel says that the administration is choking off any chance of economic growth with its massive new federal mandates – health care and financial “reform.”

Prager H3: Dennis talks to Claire Berlinski, investigative journalist whose work appears regularly in The Washington Post, Asia Times, The Weekly Standard, and The National Review. Her new book is There Is No Alternative: Why Margaret Thatcher Matters. Berlinski lives in Istanbul, Turkey. The future of this critical country is also a topic of conversation.
