On a Right position

"It is a traditional conservative position to be against huge foreign aid, which has been almost a complete failure for many years now. Talk about huge foreign aid – Turkey is demanding $26 to $32 billion according to most reports. Israel wants $12 to $15 billion additional aid. Egypt, Jordan, Saudi Arabia want additional aid in unspecified amounts. Almost every country that is supporting the U.S. in this war effort wants something in return. The cost of all these requests have not been added in to most of the war cost calculations...

It is a traditional conservative position to be in favor of a strong national defense, not one that turns our soldiers into international social workers, and to believe in a noninterventionist foreign policy rather than in globalism or internationalism...

Conservatives are generally not the types who participate in street demonstrations, especially ones led by people who say mean-spirited things about our President. But I do sincerely believe the true conservative position, the traditional conservative position is against this war."

I'm searching for University conservatives that can debate on a myriad of topics, and this seemed like a great place to unearth people able to hold forth on topics such as the possibility of artificial wombs and their implications, or originalism vs. 'living document' in regards to the Constitution, or the use of international funds in regards to sex workers and AIDS.

On the off chance you are still checking in and are interested in participating in hearty debate and general cross-viewpoint discourse, please do drop us a line at danielle@internationalistmag.com and indicate your willingness to discuss and debate, and where you fall on the political spectrum. This is for a blossoming magazine that reaches thousands of college students. We know that the conservative viewpoint is often shunted to the side on campuses, so we're trying to create cross-campus access for the 'unheard voices' of this generation.

Thanks!

Dani
