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.

William Kristol resigns as editor of The Weekly Standard-He won't be missed, if only because he won't be going anywhere
The Neutralist does not mean him ill, but his career is one of successful failure. He was completely wrong about Iraq, then and now, and yet there were no cries to cast him out into the exterior darkness.
On Libya, he was equally mistaken, maybe worse, and yet there was no outcry to banish him. This was probably because he was not without company.
Of course, he covered himself in glory as one of the chief nevertrumpers. How a guy can keep smiling with egg all over his face for a whole presidential campaign will never cease to amaze me.
So as he continues to be seen on Fox and other venues pontificating away, we at the Neutralist have a rule, if Bill states there is someplace we need to invade or free, we don't.
