Seriously, though, it’s not that difficult to tell these two apart.
- Opposed to free trade agreements.
- Opposed to relaxed immigration laws (or outright opposed to immigration altogether).
- Oppose the use of American military to intervene elsewhere.
- Support strict tariffs and laws aimed at protecting American business from foreign competition.
Ron Paul and other prominent libertarians believe in opening up trade with Cuba, ending sanctions and promoting “peace through prosperity.” Tell me, exactly, how that is “isolationist”?
“Non-interventionism,” on the other hand, means being opposed to “entangling alliances” abroad and the interference in and/or starting of military action. All while supporting freedom of commerce, travel, and immigration.
