Presidential Candidate R. Lee Wrights

Wrights position on Foreign Affairs

Wrights believes that we should “declare peace with the world” and end foreign aid and intervention.

As C.K. Chesterton said, "The only defensible war is a war of defense." The libertarian principle of non-aggression does not mean you can't defend yourself. If the United States is attacked, we should defend ourselves using whatever force is necessary, and all the power at our disposal to stop the attack quickly and decisively. But we do not have the right to maintain an occupation force or engage in "nation building" in the aggressor nation.- Interview with Wikinews, June 20, 2011.

This principal of non-intervention in the affairs of other nations is the cornerstone of the libertarian position on foreign policy. A policy of peaceful interaction, not military intervention, would encourage peaceful relations among nations by tearing down travel, trade and immigration barriers. Instead of invading armies crossing borders, needed products and goods and — peaceful people — would be crossing borders. The “world village” some talk about would be built around a bustling international marketplace. – R. Lee Wrights, press release.
