But even so, you will have little enemies, plus there will be a possibility that the people will be satisfied. Plus the nation wouldn't have to go to unnecessary wars such as in Iraq, or Afghanistan. Look at AustriaSweden, Switzerland, All are politically stable. Plus there is the ever strong possibility that the country, and have booming yet sturdy economies, Yet they are politically neutral . So, as a result, Neutrality is the best solution for a government, and it's people.

Your right on the hole neutrality sounds good but just like communism is only works on paper, now here are the things that are wrong.

1. Other Nations veiw Neutral nations as weak which is bad for the people.

2. Neutrality breeds notthing you live your life the same way everyday and nomativity sucks.

3. You dont become a global super power by staying neutral point China, USA, Europe in genral.

The nations you do mention dont mean anything cause they have no say in the world so there for they dont help anything.

As for the booming economy that is not because they are neutral it is because it an economy it goes up and down.

You mentioned something about the nations having no say in the international community. It is all a matter of choice. It is the choice of a nation to become neutral, and in order to sustain that neutrality, of course the nation will have to give up their right in voicing their opinion when it comes to confronting issues such as war, Genocide, or even issues that deals with another political power oppressing its own people.
As to Argue about what you say about the International community not taking neutral nations seriously that's simply not true. Switzerland is a massive financial hub, and for the world to just simply not take the swiss seriously is like saying that if explosion were to occur right in front of your house, you'd just simply go on mowing your lawn, as if nothing happened. As for Sweden, it is a major exporting power. It is what drives the massive demands for imports coming from the E.U. For the world to just ignore Sweden, is like losing utilities you need, yet you don't know where to find it.

Well the Swiss is a really good argument I do apploud you for that I do have a few of responses for you.

1. The UN there are only (and i may be wrong on the number i am not sure) 4 countries with Veto Power now look to the fact that they are not Neutral countries... The Signifigance of this argument is saying if these countries were to go Neutral, like you want good sir, is that the world problems such as terrorism would go answered....

2. That is my second point as well extend they fact that World Crimes would run rampent even if we are just propsing that the US is going to go neutral is still a bad thing because We are so such a Global Super Power.

3. While the Swill neutrality does work in swiss does not mean it will work in the world because of those terroist.

Voters: Will voters here is what you need to vote on today..

Neutrality is a gread and wonderous thing but for a nation that has never been neutral before to just up and do it would be tetrimental to the war on terror which is still making progress. Also we would see those Terrorist rise up and take over because we are neutral, so lets go ahead and vote for stopping terrorism and that is what you are voting for.
