Why do Liberals always sqawk when the US interferes in the internal affairs of other countries?
But neither Libs nor Cons seem to care when other countries do it to us? Not just multinational corporations, but Foreign Governments make heavy contributions to our poltical campaigns and maintain thousands of lobbyists in DC, our major cities and state capitals. GATT, NAFTA and CAFTA trump our food and highway safety laws. A huge chunk of out media is foreign owned. Not just Rupert Murdoch and Sung Yung Moon, but Cuban exiles, Arabs, the Brits, the Japs and even the Red Chinese. You wanna know why the Chicago Cubs suck? Arabs don't play baseball and that's who owns the Cubs through the Tribune Group, which is in turn owned by Arabs through a British Holding company. Saudi Arabia has enough money sunk into Bush family businesses and campaigns to own the clan outright. And no politician is going to stay in office long if he gives a higher priority to US interests than he does to Israel's. There's a lot more to protecting US Sovereignity than Deporting wetbacks. Theresa, there's a big difference between Free Markets, where everyone has equal access and rigged markets, where other countries freely sell their goods here while blocking our exports. I'm being a little hard on Liberals here because it ain't like there are REAL Conservatives anymore. As the only people who still care about America, it's on Liberals to do something about our increasing slide into foreign control. I finished the question with 10 characters to spare Lilly. And I noticed you ducked the Bush-Saudi connection. Bill Clinton did sell the Chinese missile bases on US soil--the ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach. But Bush is likely to let them take Taiwan before he leaves office. And Lilly, Osama bin Laden was Bush's Family friend--not any Liberal's. Gary, has it occurred to you that we intervened in Iraq twice by way of doing the Saudis dirty work for them? Just plain Jim, maybe you can explain how we can beat Red China at the slave labor game?

Mad, my friend, I see where you're going with this. GATT, NAFTA, and CAFTA are NOT intended to be a "FREE" Market. They're intended to BOOST foreign interests in order to bring lesser developed nations to a more level playing field. Unfortunately, that is exactly what has NOT happened. American multi-national...

Interesting points. I would say it is because Liberals don't see a problem with market involvement, just military or political involvement. Neither do Conservatives for that matter - they are all about free markets.

this is common conservative fallacious logic. One doesn't affect the other. NAFTA and the rest are frauds, but so is what we do all over the world. what you re saying is we either have to squawk both times or neither. study some critical thinking, youll understand why we can squawk whenever we want.
Answered By: gary - 9/14/2007
Excellent queston, Madpol. I think at least part of the problem lies in the fact they (both Libs and Cons) do not consider the influence of foreign interests in the US threatening to our democracy (and it is very threatening indeed) as they think the US is invincible and thus not subject to a vague and diffuse threat...

Nothing to add. Don't care about the points. Just wanted you to know that I learned something from your question - and the answers it drew.
