I think Jefferson offers a good methodology for avoiding aggression in a globalized economy:

"Let our affairs be disentangled from those of all other nations, except as to commerce" - Thomas Jefferson

You tried that on another thread idiot. I pointed out that is exactly what Trump is trying to do. Separate the US away from global commerce! It's like old Tom had suffered through Nazism.

What a great idea!

Probably we should carry a big stick too, because the universe is a dark forest.

Wasn't it Jefferson who got funding for the first five Frigates of the U.S. Navy?

It was. 

Jefferson understood the importance of keeping the Trade Lanes open. A strong Navy is vital for this.   And he also understood the importance of distancing ourselves from the the political trappings into foreign affairs.

I wish TJ could run in 2020.  I'd vote for him in a heartbeat.  And I could probably get many others to vote for him as well!

I'll probably end up writing in some living person who comes pretty close to Jefferson's ideals, a good sane libertarian who won't be on the ballot anywhere. Cry

Do you think if Jefferson was alive the LP would choose him as a candidate, or that he would associate himself with the LP?

Has the libertarian party ever been able to attract a highly desirable leader to represent them?

Assuming TJ was high quality?

I think that libertarians lack the ability to make the distinction between remaining involved in commerce and other entanglements with other nations. That would kill it for TJ.

Or at least, nobody has the nerve to express that now, due to their support of Trump.
