The Cult of Reagan, and Other Neocon Follies by Thomas E. Woods, Jr.

The Cult of Reagan, and Other Neocon Follies by Thomas E. Woods, Jr.:

Some time ago The American Spectator’s Jeffrey Lord claimed Ron Paul’s foreign policy of nonintervention was "liberal," and that conservatives are supposed to be hawkish on foreign policy. Now to some extent, no one really cares about these labels, and who qualifies as what. But it is obviously false to say that supporters of nonintervention must be left-liberals. I showed this in my YouTube response, which dismantled Lord’s entire position:

I figured that would be it. There is no wiggle room left for Lord after that. As Gary North put it, "The lesson here is simple: don’t get Woods on your case if you are saying really stupid things about American history."

Yet he came back for more. With a busy schedule both personally and professionally, I have only now had the time to respond, which I’m doing in a series of bullet points.....
