In 1970, John Kerry shed his pacifist front, and revealed his altruist ideology:
Kerry said that the United Nations should have control over most of our foreign military operations. “I’m an internationalist. I’d like to see our troops dispersed through the world only at the directive of the United Nations.”
On other issues, Kerry wants “to almost eliminate CIA activity. The CIA is fighting its own war in Laos and nobody seems to care.” He also favors a negative income tax and keeping unemployment at a very low level, “even if it means selective economic controls.”
Kerry seems to favor worldwide military interventionism – but only if it’s not in America’s interest. Not surprisingly, he’s also in favor of increasing the welfare state, and Nixon-era price and wage controls. Bush certainly deserves to be taken to task for his lackluster response to terrorism and runaway spending – but coming from this guy, it’s the pot calling the kettle black.
