    Yes really. If you don't buy the supplements the tin foil hat you are wearing might not operate at maximum efficiency.

    It is NOT isolation, it is NONINTERVENTION. Get it straight.

    Why is it statists always resort to the use of the word isolation, to denigrate a policy of NOT killing and destroying?

    Believing the US is not an empire, is an admission of ignorance. It may be willful due to a life time of brainwashing by the state.

    You are the one mindlessly repeating Alex Jones' message.

    It's the degree of expendability that explains the difference between banal empire and oppressive empire, just like it decides the difference between banal government and oppressive government.

    One can argue that the US government can do bad things to it's people, but one can also argue that more oppressive governments like Venezuela can do far worse.
