A world where America is not extraordinary. A world where America is just another country among all the rest. A world where America is forced to apologize for being an "empire." A world where America unilaterally retreats from the war on terrorism. A world where America sends pirates and mercenaries to fight its battles. And s world where "conservatism" means slashing defense budgets and legalizing drugs.
Today, Washington U.S. Senate candidate Clint Didier conducted a "radio marathon" featuring many guests that share these same beliefs.
10:00 AM guest Bruce Fein, in a September 2, 2008 address to Ron Paul's "Rally For The Republic" in Minneapolis, offered a critique of the Bush administration's interventionist policy and advocating a more non-interventionist foreign policy. Fein also harshly criticized the anti-terror policies of the Bush White House, including wiretapping and detention of terror suspects.
In April 2009, Fein criticized President Barack Obama for declining to prosecute Bush administration officials for composing CIA memos justifying torture during interrogations.
Fein also is an advocate for the legalization of marijuana.
11:00 AM guest Tom Mullen recently wrote:
The gargantuan U.S. military establishment survives because American soldiers and civilians continue to accept the assertion that it is necessary to preserve our freedom.11:30 AM guest Peter Schiff, Republican Senate candidate in Connecticut, is pro-abortion and doesn't believe the federal government has the right to ban partial birth abortions. He also supports legalizing drugs, including cocaine and heroin.
And of course there was Didier's hero, Ron Paul. Paul recently teamed up with Barney Frank, yes that Barney Frank, to call for cutting defense spending by $1 trillion at a time when al-Qaeda still vows a strike on the U.S., Russia is considering new strategic bombers, and Iran and North Korea continue to pursue nuclear arsenals.
I'm surprised Barney wasn't on the radio marathon.
In any case, Clint is getting a head start on his next career. I fully expect him to soon join the ranks of far-right paranoids like Alex Jones on the airwaves.
Because after next Tuesday, his political career is finished.
