FOREIGN AFFAIRS


While the nation's foreign affairs are chiefly administered by the State Department, American presidents, for all intents and purposes, are the primary authors of our national foreign policy.

Apart from their role as the commander in chief, an American president has the executive and moral authority to shape the direction the country takes in managing its international relationship with foreign states and non-state actors involving a myriad of issues, including, security, trade, environment, immigration, culture and ideology.

The United States' has assumed a central role in the world stage since the middle of the last century. However, observers foresee an increasingly larger American presence in the 21st century. As the sole remaining superpower in the world, the United States must balance its own political and economic interest against the other nations of the world. In the mix are its former cold war rival, Russia, the emerging Asian giants, China and India, the old countries of Europe, Iran, Syria, North Korea, and perhaps most crucially, the Middle East.

Regardless of how one looks at it, against all expectations, this is shaping up to be the American century.



 

 


Former Governor of New Mexico

Gary Johnson

Presidential Candidate Gary Johnson

Johnson Position on Foreign Affairs

Johnson, while maintaining the need to constantly improve our national defense, rejects the idea of our troops continued presence in Europe, Iraq, Afghanistan and now Libya. The undefined and shifting objective of our international military presence, coupled with the enormous expenditure that our creaking economy is saddled with, is a stark reminder of the need to reevaluate our foreign and domestic security policy in the face of our outrageous budget deficit.
