      I infer American liberals wholly support America's role as the world's policeman.  So to paraphrase Miss Stein, An American is an America, is an American.  And whether Left or Right it makes no difference at all.

        I asked a one sentence question.  You seem not to have an answer other than that sad little whatever you just posted.

        Some are totally isolationist, at the other extreme are interventionists like Samantha Power.  Most are between those extremes.

          They cannot imagine anything other than total xenophobic isolationism and militaristic interventionalism because very few of them know anything about peaceful engagement.  So often it seems the Tea Party is the authentic expression of American political thought
