"As part of a panel for The American Conservative at this year’s Freedom Fest conference in Las Vegas, speakers Daniel McCarthy, Jon Basil Utley and I .... made the case that conservatives should return to a more prudent and constrained foreign policy, based on actual defense and tangible national interests, as opposed to Bush-era nation-building and 'spreading democracy' around the globe. One attendee, who seemed to think George W. Bush had already defined the Right’s foreign policy just fine, asked in anger: What 'good' was America if we didn’t 'fight evil?' McCarthy asked where we might find 'fighting evil' in the Constitution. The gentleman walked out." (07/19/11)
