    Pretty much the situation as she sits. I don't believe I've ever read a more lucid appraisal of the driving forces behind the American left, or of the "Euro-view" of that which is uniquely American. It makes me damned proud to be a conservative. Fantastic post, Kathianne!

    What ever happened to the Monroe Doctrine? Someone should tell Europe to go :finger: off!

    The monroe doctrine might be respected if we had not decided to get involved in their hemisphere so much.

    I agree. We should have stayed out of WWII and the post WWII efforts to rebuild Europe. (Note: just a bit sarcastic here).

    Seems to me that the US has failed to enforce the Monroe Doctrine many times when it COULD have, therefore, it doesn't get much respect at all.

    We got involved in Europes affairs before WWII. and we were done rebuilding decades ago. yet how many troops do we have in how many nations in europe? I remember just in this last decade we were over there fighting to change the internal structure of a few countries that had NOTHING to do with us.

    Yes we were. However, I dont think the Monroe Doctrine was/is a basis for isolationism.

    You'll find that Badnarik via tpahl finds every excuse for isolationism.
