Not Isolationism
13 June 2001

2001 Ron Paul 45:1
Mr. PAUL. Mr. Speaker, will the gentleman yield?

Mr. LANTOS. I yield to the gentleman from Texas.

2001 Ron Paul 45:2
Mr. PAUL. I thank the gentleman for yielding. Mr. Speaker, we do not have time to get into the Marshall Plan, but there is a pretty strong case to indicate that the major part of the rebuilding of Europe came from private capital and not specifically from the immigration plan.

2001 Ron Paul 45:3
But the point that I would like to answer to is the term “isolationism.” I am not a protectionist. I am not an isolationist. I am for openness, travel, trade. I vote consistently that way, so the term “isolationist” does not apply to the policies that I am talking about, because I am probably for more openness in trade and travel than most anybody in this body.

2001 Ron Paul 45:4
So the term is not isolationism.
