Why The Neutralist? The term Isolationist implies a narrow Fortress America outlook and is used as an epithet. The term Neutralist does not indicate someone hiding out from the world. No one calls the Swiss isolationists. The Wilsonian world view is old, tired and wrong. Our interventions have been less and less successful and now the failure can no longer be covered up.

Arnie Arnesen butchers the English Language

As the Neutralist, I would not want a war monger like Sarah Palin to be president. Still, I do like that she upsets all the cool people. One of them was on the Callie Crossley Show and went after La Palin. Memo to Arnie, if you are going to be a grammar nazi, make sure you know what you're talking about.

Quoting Arnie, "She butchers the English Language, and as someone who works with you know students of English as a Second Language and I have to like repair their assignments, I'm lookin at this.going I want an esl student to feel much better about themselves because this women thinks she can be president."

I'm going to try and help English learner Arnie. Arnie, I think you meant to say, "She butchers the English Language, and as someone who works with students of English as a Second Language and I have to repair their assignments, I'm listening to this thinking I want an esl student to feel much better about themselves because this women thinks she can be president."

Of course other than the example above, she was more than competent to hold up her end of the banal banter during the show.

Why not start a stronger movement toward neutrality? It is a shame that we do not take that leap. Costa Rica has been neutral since 1949 and has a 98% literacy rate. I am tired of electing congress members so that they may ignore the people over the voice of industry. We should claim neutrality and clean our own house. The people of other nations will solve their own problems when they have had enough. Oh well...

Bailey,

A stronger movement is devoutly to be wished. If you notice how often I post, well you can see how forlorn this is.

I am certainly open to suggestions.

I would suggest drafting a petition with a clearly defined statement, purpose, and an outline of pros and cons. The role of neutrality needs to be solidified in its scope so that the people will understand that we shall still be a strong nation; however, a nation that only defends. To appeal to the masses, we must show how beneficial neutrality can be to the well-being of our country. We must also determine what will be argued against neutrality and prepare rebuttal that will defuse their arguments. Once this is assembled, we can gather enough signatures to force congress to pay attention. I would gladly gather signatures here in Florida.
