This video from The Revolution PAC, which supports Ron Paul’s presidential candidacy, asks viewers to “imagine for a moment that somewhere in the middle of Texas there was a large foreign military base. Say Chinese or Russian.”

“The reality is that our military presence on foreign soil is as offensive to the people that live there as armed Chinese troops would be if they were stationed in Texas. Shutting down military bases and ceasing to deal with to deal with other nations with threats of violence is not isolationism. It is the opposite. Opening ourselves up to friendship, honest trade and diplomacy is the foreign policy of peace and prosperity.”
