On your point about the media's coverage about Ron Paul's foreign policy, it seems range to me, too, that people find an isolationist foreign policy so crazy and implausible, especially when considering that there have been presidents, Teddy Roosevelt probably the most notable, who used such a policy. So it's not as if this idea is completely foreign to America. With that said, there weren't nuclear weapons in Roosevelt's age so who the fuck knows? It's probably better for us to police some of the crazy people. Then again, though, at what point is another country as a threat worth policing? It kind of becomes a slippery slope.
