Does Rand Paul support the legalization of cannabis like his father does? --MorningStar 15:53, 20 May 2010 (EDT)

On November 13, Turkish ruler Erdogan is coming to Washington again.[1] Now it's the way of Erdogan vs. the way of Liberty. What way to go should be clear to every Libertarian!--James2 (talk) 18:51, 12 October 2019 (EDT)

Maybe this is a fight for the Turks, not Americans. The values of the U.S. founding fathers are superior to those of Erdogan, but that doesn't mean we should force those values on others. --1990'sguy (talk) 19:49, 12 October 2019 (EDT)
Inviting Erdogan while U.S. troops have to withdraw under less than honorable conditions is a kowtow to him. Americans had to withdraw from Vietnam, too, but Nixon wouldn't have invited Ho-Chi-Minh to Washington. And Erdogan and his entourage did behave badly last time, there is zero reason to invite him a second time. It would be a nightmare for the conservatives and for America and for the West as a whole. --James2 (talk) 16:34, 14 October 2019 (EDT)
"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness." These words were in opposition to slavery back then and are in opposition to Erdogan now. If Erdogan is invited to Washington under these circumstances, the Republican party is finished. Is that the hidden aim? --James2 (talk) 17:00, 14 October 2019 (EDT)
How many rabid pro-abortion world leaders have been invited to the White House? (answer: too many to count) How about those who support euthanasia or who support restrictions on free speech and religious freedom? (again, too many to count) Trump's being a realist, not some purist who thinks it's the U.S.'s obligation to embark on a worldwide crusade to rid the world of all dictators (funny, that liberal/neocon crusade never opposes the many leaders who support denying the unborn the right to live). Trump's unwillingness to go on a moral crusade against an medium-sized country on the other side of the world is one of the main reasons he won in 2016. --1990'sguy (talk) 18:58, 14 October 2019 (EDT)
It's a kowtow. To be an isolationist means to be persistent and don't laugh with foreign leaders that caused America to abandon their allies and withdraw their forces in such a humiliating way. What do you think will the individual American soldier think when he/she gets the order to fight and risk his/her life when within a blink of an eye this (or a future) commander-in-chief yields the ground to the enemy? To be clear: the enemy isn't Turkey, it's Erdogan, the corrupt and greedy destroyer of secularist Turkey and regional sponsor of Jihadism. Erdogan was in a vulnerable position after his party lost the majority at the general elections in June 2015 - and the German chancellor helped him out. And he was vulnerable again after the double defeat in the March and June 2019 Istanbul mayoral election - and now the U.S. president rushed to help him out. Both Western leaders screwed the freedom-loving people in Turkey by making the kowtow to Erdogan, but this time it's much more profound: now it's the major Western nation. I couldn't imagine that. And what does the Senate do? A meaningful and veto-proof sanctions bill? Forget it. --James2 (talk) 14:59, 15 October 2019 (EDT)
