Libertarian Foreign Policy Problems On Full Display Over Crimea Conflict
The Freedom Report podcast today takes on the difficult issue of the Russian invasion and annexation of Crimea in the Ukraine, specifically the differing responses from Senator Rand Paul and former congressman Ron Paul. Whose response was technically more libertarian?
Congressman Ron Paul issued a statement that Crimea "seceded" from Ukraine, cited U.N. international law and said it's none of our business, while Senator Paul took a different tack, chastising Vladimir Putin and calling for America to flood the market with cheap oil and work to undermine Russia economically.
Isolationist sentiment has reared it's ugly head with some people saying explicitly they don't care what happens in Europe, while others have claimed non-intervention with an overt message of support to libertarian activists who opposed the Russian invasion and sham elections.
All that and more on the Freedom Report podcast!
