Days of Change

Why Do Anything? | May 21, 2015

Last week, I considered titling a post “The Clinton Foundation doesn’t feed starving people, why should we?” My point was that trucking in bags or rice to starving Africans is a long-term temporary solution. More and more, it seems the solutions lie in economic opportunity. Give people a chance to use their talents to make money and start businesses and see how life improves. This is one of the things I’m willing to accept libertarians having a valid point on.

On the other hand, Barack Obama is using his office to restrict the economic and social freedom of Americans and giving freedom to murderous Muslims to take over the Arab (and Persian) world. It doesn’t really matter if it’s called ISIS or Al-Qaeda. When these groups have created a region-wide caliphate, they’ll go after the West next. We should have stopped Hitler before he invaded Poland.

This is ultimately why I have a hard time listening to Rand Paul and his non-intervention stuff. War is messy. There is no solution that is perfect from the outset. Doing nothing is not an answer. It is a way to limit your choices in the future. Imagine if The Bush Administration called 9/11 a setback for America.

  1. Unlike you, I start from the premise that obama is the Mus-churian candidate. Rand Paul is a Libertarian in a Conservative costume. Like father, like son.
