About "National Security"
As the race for the presidency begins again, I’m reminded of just how much I despise politicians and their policies. Especially when it comes to foreign policy, it is exceedingly difficult these days to find a candidate who doesn’t want to wage war on any and every foreign entity that looks at us funny. I believe it is time for America to relearn the idea that we are not the police of the world, and we have no business in war of any kind unless we are provoked.
That is the thought process that this case comes from. My basic philosophy is that if we’re not in danger, we have no business attacking other countries. The very idea of a preventive war means that no one is yet in any real danger, and yet we’re waging war anyway. I think that’s ridiculous.
When you run this case, be sure to emphasize that it’s not only our national security that’s at risk but also the national security of others. Focus on the idea that we as a free country need to let others be free as well if we’re not in danger.
