During the peak of my ultra-leftist phase about 25 years ago, I recall telling a friend of the Republican persuasion that the ideal GOP society would have the foreign policy of Nazi Germany, the economy of Guatemala, and the civil liberties of the Soviet Union. Regrettably, I seem to have been correct.
The American Conservative
Last night’s main debate covered foreign policy and national security issues almost exclusively. This allowed for a number of important exchanges and some revealing moments for some of the candidates, and it also showed for the most part that the modern GOP remains unhinged and dangerous in their view of foreign threats and their preferred responses to them.
