On the Claim by Ben Shapiro and Other Neocon Ramrods that Rand Paul Is an "Isolationist"

Yeah, this is essentially the same horseshit that "The Nation" and other war-mongering interventionists were saying about people like Robert Taft and Russell Kirk back in the '30s and '40s. It didn't make any sense then (the fact that Taft and Kirk weren't so much isolationists as they were non-interventionists; a distinction that was apparently just as baffling to the progressives of yesteryear as it is to the neocons of today) and it makes even less sense now (the fact that our interventions have almost uniformly led to chaos and unintended consequences making us even less secure).............Of course, if Mr.Shapiro, Brett Stephens and the rest of these chicken-hawk war-mongers of fighting-age desire to volunteer THEIR services, yes, by all means.......
