America or Foreign Force and Influence

Most of my life I couldn’t understand those that advocate policies or actions that obviously endanger the ongoing concern of our American Republic and Liberty for mankind.  Now I realize my naïveté. “Concerning Dangers from Foreign Force and Influence” Federalist No. 2, Author John Jay “To the People . . .
