Foreign Entanglements

“The Nation, which indulges towards another an habitual hatred, or an habitual fondness, is in some degree a slave… a passionate attachment of one Nation for another produces a variety of evils… it gives to ambitious, corrupted, or deluded citizens (who devote themselves to the favourite Nation) facility to betray, or sacrifice the interests of their own country… gilding with the appearance of a virtuous sense of obligation.”

—George Washington in his Farewell Address

Washington warned about the dangers of foreign involvement in his Farewell Address of 1796. His warning was simple: showing favoritism to one nation makes you a slave to that nation and will cause those entrusted with securing America to betray their own country in favor of their chosen nation while claiming that they have a moral obligation to do so.


Throughout the later half of the 20th century, the U.S. has been involved in one foreign entanglement after another, with the most recent examples being Ukraine and Israel. We have given over $75 billion in aid, most of it military and financial, to Ukraine to protect their borders. Most of the money was used by those within the Ukrainian government to buy mansions, and most of the equipment we sent was lost, with no plans by the Biden Administration to replace it. We sent them tanks, anti-aircraft missiles, and surveillance and radar systems, weakening ourselves and leaving ourselves defenseless. We are about to make the same mistake with Israel.


With $34 trillion in debt, we do not have money to spare. Our borders, northern and southern, are wide open, and there are no plans to change that. Most of our military is stationed overseas for the security of other nations, while America remains unprotected.


It’s time to end this nonsense!


The only moral obligations America's elected leaders have are to the U.S. Constitution and to the United States, both of which they swear to uphold and protect. This is where Janet McNulty's obligation lies.
