No more military action. As much as I love this country and love what it used to stand for, we cannot be the world's police; it is a system that is unsustainable (i.e., ancient Rome).

We can, however, once again become the world's best example for freedom – the country that, just to get here, men and women in places like Cuba get on a raft and risk getting eaten by sharks.

It is time for America to lead by example, not by might.
