A short while ago, our humble blog was offered by the McCotter campaign an exclusive interview with our favorite Presidential Candidate, and so we now have his answers to our questions. We will be posting one question and answer a day for the next six days, starting today, and ending with the entire text of the interview on the day of the Presidential Debate in Iowa, which McCotter should be participating in.
Here is the first question and answer:
The GOP’s field of candidates this time around has shifted toward a more Isolationist position on foreign policy. Why do you suppose this is, and do you think it is the right direction for the party?
McCotter: Isolationism has long been a strain within both parties. Now, as then, it is not helpful to Americans’ security.
In a concise manner that no other candidate could rival, the Congressman sums up the problem with Isolationism quite well: No matter how appealing it might be to focus entirely on the US, and leave world problems for the rest of world to deal with, doing so would make America much weaker worldwide, and would put us in great danger. For this reason it would not be wise for America to isolate itself, and the GOP should not turn towards this ill-conceived policy.
