GOP’s Can Do Spirit in Foreign Policy

leave a comment »

The best thing about being a Republican is sometimes hard to put a finger on.  I enjoy the moral superiority of my political positions as much as the next guy and Republican women are out of sight.   They don’t call it Fox News for nothing if you know what I mean.   However, I think the best thing about being a Republican is that we are the party of self-reliance.  We believe in pulling ourselves up by own own bootstraps and that is also the American spirit.   Nowhere do I see this Republican can do spirit as clearly as in the area of foreign policy.

  • Senator Jim DeMint (R-SC) is in Honduras in order to give his support to the junta who recently launched a coup against a leftists President.  This is the kind of guts that Obama and the other countries in the region have lacked in their condemnation of seizing government power by force.
  • Senator Jim Inhoffe (R-OK) who I recently described as one of our best hopes against the forces of science hoping to undermine our country’s values is going to Copenhagen to present the other side on the global warming debate.
  • House Minority Whip Eric Cantor (R-VA) traveled to Israel where he spoke out against President Obama’s opposition to expanding settlements.
  • Rep. Mark Kirk (R-IL) boasted in June that he told Chinese officials  not to trust America’s budget numbers. “One of the messages I had — because we need to build trust and confidence in our number one creditor,” said Kirk, “is that the budget numbers that the US government had put forward should not be believed.”
  • Sarah Palin (R-?) recently gave a speech in Hong Kong where she criticized America’s foreign policy in a wide variety of issues.

As you can see, we’ve stopped waiting for the Obama presidency to make foreign policy decisions for us.  We’ve taken the initiative and we’re making our own more sensible foreign policy.  This is exciting, but I believe we can do much more and we must.   As a party, we must join together to issue an extremely strongly worded ultimatum to both Iran and North Korea that we are through pussyfooting around and we will not accept their continued nuclear threat.  We should let them know that if they do not back down we will hire an army of military contractors to crush their petty regimes.

Furthermore, it is time for us to let the rest of the world know we are done apologizing.   Obama has his embassies in other countries, we should have our own embassies too.   Let the other countries in the world know that we will be conducting our own foreign policy from now on.   Most of the military is Republican regardless of what they tell you and you know that they will follow us.  If we want more troops in Afghanistan, let’s just ask the troops and tell them it’s for the GOP.  This is the vision our founding fathers had for this democracy where know man shall have his foreign policy dictated to him by an unjust tyrant, but shall create his own foreign policy with other like minded individuals.
