“I can’t imagine what [General Smedley Butler] would think of his country today — this complete hero. And General Butler said we need to pass a constitutional amendment that our military cannot go over 500 miles from our shore. And I think about that today and think that he is even more right today because we have the technology we can blow up the world 100 times over now. What do we need 170-some bases throughout the world [for]? And why are we in every war, Judge? I’m 64 now, and, when you count the war on drugs, we’ve been at war my whole life. What are we going to do about this? I mean, am I going to have to run next spring for the Libertarians?”
