Big Government Foreign Policy

It’s easy for libertarians to get swept up in the small government, Tea Party rhetoric of the mainstream Right. But then there will always be something to remind us that many of the Tea Partiers, Republicans, and others on the right are not only fundamentally different, but also fundamentally hostile to us. Here is Rush Limbaugh calling for “massive air strikes” against Iran and “pound[ing] Iran into submission.”

His only concern? “I don’t know whether we have the will to do this.” Yes, he laments, when it comes to foreign policy, the problem with Obama — whose domestic policies Limbaugh finds so totalitarian — is that he is too laissez-faire.
