Hmm …

… The Party of Wilson, Wiretaps, and War, by John R. MacArthur | Harper's Magazine.

As former senator Jim Webb (D., Va.) wrote in March in The National Interest, “Under the objectively un-definable rubric of ‘humanitarian intervention,’ President Obama has arguably established the authority of the president to intervene militarily almost anywhere without the consent or the approval of Congress.” This signifies “a breakdown of our constitutional process,” according to Webb, but I believe that it also affords an opportunity to spur our “complacent” Congress into doing its duty.

I don't think that either Rand or Ron Paul think of themselves as "right-wingers." Ron Paul ran for President as the Libertarian Party candidate in 1988. People have to get over using these cheap-shot labels. The do nothing for rational discourse. If you think you have something to say, dispense with the boiler-plate.
