Although you're right that it sounds ultraconservative and staunchly antifederalist, this statement clearly condemns the Bush administration's policies as being the whole reason for the political breakdown leading to the civil and world wars:
"Real disruptions in world events begin with the destabilization of the West as a result of degrading US foreign policy and consistency."
Again, it sounds more like a conservative's warning against "liberalization" than anything else. Remember, conservatives worry about the "destabilization of the West" and the upholding of western values and culture. From our perspective, Bush's foreign policy certainly seems degrading, but the only specific foreign policy he mentioned was a weakened support for Israel-- certainly not a conservative policy to warn against. And I see absolutely no change in support for Israel by either major party, so my conclusion is that his whole time travel premise is an alarmist warning against deviating from conservatism.Edit:
seemed to have missed that lengthy section on war. After reading it, it seems a mix of conservative and libertarian principles-- with some notable inconsistencies.
