Mary Ruwart, author of Healing Our World in an Age of Aggression and Libertarian Party presidential candidate, discusses the similarities in how our government provoked 9/11 and the attack on Pearl Harbor, how our militaristic over-reaction to 9/11 has hindered our apprehension of Bin Laden and increased the danger of terrorism, how America needs to nurture free trade policies to build relationships with foreigners, our misguided immigration policies, how an armed populace would reduce crime and may have prevented 9/11, the threats to the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, how slashing governmental regulation will boost the economy and job market, how she means to pick up where Ron Paul left off with her Libertarian run for president, and how the American people should decide our foreign policy.
