So while Cruz wants a more gigantic military, Kaisch would create a new government agency. Wasn't he running on a platform of making government smaller? I wonder how they will coordinate this with drone strikes. I guess we aren't the great melting pot anymore. Also, I am sure Moshe will be THRILLED.

Quote:
As part of a broad national security plan to defeat ISIS, Republican Presidential candidate John Kasich proposed creating a new government agency to push Judeo-Christian values around the world.

The new agency, which he hasn't yet named, would promote a Jewish- and Christian-based belief system to four regions of the world: China, Iran, Russia and the Middle East.

"We need to beam messages around the world" about the freedoms Americans enjoy, Kasich said in an interview with NBC News Tuesday. "It means freedom, it means opportunity, it means respect for women, it means freedom to gather, it means so many things."

That's the issue with those other parts of the world. They've managed to go all this time and they've never heard of Judaism or Christianity. Amazing.

That's what I muttered when I read this. Thing is, you can't out crazy Trump or out lie Cruz so I am not sure what he thinks is going happen here.

I suppose he needs to chum the evangelical waters, and is trying to walk the fine line between stealing them away from Cruz without committing to any of the crazy evangelical-political ideas.

Degree of Sanity is negatively correlated to winning the GOP primary.

I wonder how this fits in with the B.S. "They hate us for our freedoms". Wouldn't beaming them about our freedoms just increase their hate, not make them smack their foreheads and start celebrating Christmas?

Knowing ISIS, hearing about women being free would just cause them to behead a bunch.

the important question is where would Minisci fall on the Cake Debate? Freedom of Cake for all or only some?

When they say "Judeo-Christian", they mean "Fundamentalist Christianity but we're not Anti-Semites because Jews are needed for the End Times"

When he says he is going to beam messages, I keep wondering what these are going to look like? I have images of the 50s shorts that MST3K used to ridicule. Is that what he has in mind?

I see this and I wonder if someone could win an election by going Mr Charles and drawing everyone's attention to the strangeness of the dream. By just being above painful election histrionics and pointing out how everyone else relies on them... could a person use that to distinguish themselves from the crowd instead of thinking they need to be part of the crowd but MORE in order to get ahead?

It's always annoying to hear people assume that values like freedom and equality come from their religion. I'm not a fan of creating a government agency to spread propaganda about how awesome we are but if we're going to do it why not call them Enlightenment values?

Don't we already have the US Information Service, aka Radio Free Europe/etc.?

I kinda liked Kasich. Not now though.

We used to have a separate US Information Agency (USIA, known abroad as US Information Service to avoid the dread word "agency") which was the "spread American values abroad" arm of the US government.

It could do what Kasich wants.

Except the Republicans killed it in the 1990s to spite Clinton.

I can just see it now. A family crouches around their ancient radio listening to the wonders of Judeo-Christian values as they visit their son in an Iraq hospital. The children are smiling in hope. Suddenly an drone strike hits the hospital. I wonder how the department handles that part of the message?
