Answer by Kris Rosvold:
No. The Shores of Tripoli is a particularly bad foundation for our foreign policy.
I would assert that the US Constitution (including all of the Amendments) would be a much be a much better basis for our foreign policy. Sadly, that document has been completely, intentionally, and conveniently, ignored by the President and Congresscritters ever since they (illegally) handed Our national Bank to a consortium of commercial banksters (banker/gangster) commonly known as the Federal Reserve in a midnight session, several decades ago.
IF that was so "legal" why all the need for that secrecy until AFTER it was a fiat accompli?!
We are NOT "broke" as a nation, and never have been, we ARE being robbed blind with the full, and active, collusion of "our" Congresscritters!
If you're not outraged, you are not paying attention.
