The security of the Nation is too important to experiment with ideas that if simply thought out will obviously not work.

Right because sacrificing our Bill of Rights and inflaming nations to hate us is working out real great.

Right now, we have the entire Middle East, and North Africa, to show what happens when you try it.

Inflaming nations? Like I said, realism must be taken into account now. His ideas would have worked fine if put in place and sustained BEFORE we created the mess over decades, if not a century or more.

You don't think that our presence in certain parts of the world incites hatred against us? Perhaps saying "nations" was a poor choice of words, perhaps "inflaming groups of people and regions" would have been better.

I don't think it's too late to put his ideals in place, in fact I think the moment's just right. If we are supposed to be the "leaders of the free world" then it's time to start acting like it. Interfering in the internal mattes of other nations is not how we should go about it.
