First Principles: National Defense Is A Cardinal Duty of All Statesmen

“National defense is one of the cardinal duties of a statesman.” – John Adams (1815)

How has the Left Wing of the Democratic Party missed this essential facet of running a government?  For a nation to be viable, it must be defended and its borders secure.  If you don’t understand this proposition in the United States and you’re a Democrat or other backer of a no borders policy… but you then insist that Russia should be held accountable for taking the Crimea from the Ukraine, you may be a hypocrite.   That many Russians didn’t get into Crimea by sheer luck and happenstance.  Or, put another way, why does the Left never seem to learn from history,… ever? (Even when it’s ongoing history that all should be well aware of by now…)
