She's a nitwit. No wonder so many call Christians hypocrites. She doesn't deserve to be on that stage.
Also, if you do any research concerning the opinions of various leaders of nations in the Middle East, many have openly stated that they have no qualms with the American public. Our government however, is an entirely separate matter indeed.

Seems that the leaders of the Middle East and the American public have something in common.

When will Yellow Press in America fall in favor of the true journalism? Our mainstream media is half of the problem with this country.

We've never been isolationist. There is no such thing, at least not in an American context. December 7, 1941 was the result of Roosevelt sticking his nose into the wars in East Asia and Europe, and an indirect result of our possession of stolen colonies in the Pacific. Some "isolation."

We do? I don't know that some disembodied force called "evil" exists. I know there are bad people who do bad things when they can get away with it, but that's not what I think you are talking about.

What so many people don't realize is that the more progressive foreign policy is one of interventionism and interference with other governments. It's far more conservative, imo, to maintain a strong military but not but into other nation's private matters. If one does any research into modern Middle Eastern history, you will find that the US had little to no issues up until the end of WWII. Once the US gov't overthrew the Iranian ruler with the Reza Shah, things went downhill.

Along with overthrowing most of Latin America and getting in bed with Israel.

Japan is not allowed to declare war or invade another country.

They do have a wonderful self defense army however.

So far, this has worked out great for them.

Thumbs up to Japan, who has remained a global player in the world despite not invading anyone who looks at them cross eyed.

He never said that! Ron did say we treat countries with nukes with more respect. Can anybody dispute that statement?
I think Rush is WAY over-rated. Some of the lesser known names are much better. I was turned off to Rush when I heard his little slogan about how he was so smart he he could take on anyone "with half his brain tied behind his back". I listen to him from time to time if there is nothing better on but that is about it.

I will say he does usually let the listeners have their say before cutting them off UNLIKE Mark Levin and Sean Hannity . So few people call in with differing opinions, his show is boring to listen to as his views are so status quo and so predictable.

He's for a Constitutional Republic as the Founding Fathers established. Is that what makes him dangerous???

One thing we learn from history is that we never learn from history. He wants to isolate us from the world, leave our allies vulnerable to attack, and think that the Muslims will just leave us alone if we leave.

Dec 7, 1941??? Decades of isolationism allowed mad men to build up their war machines and got our butts sucker punched. The world is an evil place! Paul talks about war this and war that!!

No one loves war!! No we do know that EVIL exists and must be detered, punished or restrianed!! We need a presence around this globe. I shutter to think where this world would be without this country in it.

Would China or Russia defeat and enemy and then turn around and help it rebuild????
