Ralph Raico on politics and foreign policy

There is no reason to suppose that our leaders are any more competent in international affairs than they are in domestic affairs. The process by which they are elected – now absurdly and almost surrealistically reduced to mindless thirty-second television commercials – is practically guaranteed to produce political leaders who are liars or fools or both.

~ Ralph Raico, The Case for an American First Policy as appearing in Sheldon Richman, Editor, The Failure of America’s Foreign Wars
