The United States of America is a threat to world peace. Because what [America] is saying is that if you are afraid of a veto in the Security Council, you can go outside and take action and violate the sovereignty of other countries. That is the message they are sending to the world. That must be condemned in the strongest terms.
I am a Libertarian. I want to be known as a Libertarian and a Constitutionalist in the tradition of the early James Madison – father of the Constitution. Labels change and perhaps in the old tradition I would be considered one of the original Whigs.

Long ago, there was a noble word, liberal, which derives from the word free. Now a strange thing happened to that word. A man named Hitler made it a term of abuse, a matter of suspicion, because those who were not with him were against him, and liberals had no use for Hitler.
