The Failure of America's Foreign Wars

Americans are now faced with competing visions of where we want our nation to go. On the one hand, we have the vision of America's Founders: individual liberty, private property, and limited government, in which there is no welfare, Social Security, income taxation, Medicare, Medicaid, regulations, subsidies, and the like. Equally important, no foreign wars. 
On the other hand, we have the vision of the 20th- and 21st-century public officials: ever-increasing taxation, regulations, and political plunder. And, of course, body bags and caskets as part of their attempt to remake the world into one gigantic welfare state. 
The stakes are too high for any American to ignore. For with foreign wars, not only do we have taxation and regulation, we also have the specter of funerals and wheelchairs for husbands, fathers, sons, wives, mothers, and daughters.
It is time for the American people to recognize that our ancestors were right and that public officials were wrong. It is time to recapture the principles of our Founders. It is time to lead the world out of the welfare-state darkness into which it has plunged during most of our lifetime. 
The Failure of America’s Foreign Wars strips away the truth-obscuring nostalgia for America’s foreign adventures and shows the perverse and bloody consequences of these conflicts.
