While reckless warmongers in the White House and in the Oped pages hype the myriad supposed global threats, Americans want a far more isolationist foreign policy…

[N]early half of those surveyed want the U.S. to be less active on the global stage, with fewer than one-fifth calling for more active engagement—an anti-interventionist current that sweeps across party lines.

Pew/USA Today poll conducted over the weekend found that Americans  oppose – by a 2-1 margin – any U.S. military aid to Ukraine.

YouGov poll conducted last month found that only 14 percent of Americans said the U.S. has “any responsibility” to get involved in Ukraine, and only 18 percent think the U.S. “has any responsibility to protect Ukraine if Russia were to invade.”

35% of all Americans support the Afghanistan war

63% of Americans think that we should stop mandatory prison terms for drug law violations

54% are in favor of marijuana legalization

67% say the government should focus more on providing treatment for people who use drugs like cocaine and heroin, and only 26% think the focus should be more on prosecuting people who use such drugs
