For years since WW II until 9-11-2001, I would agree with you whole heartedly that US foreign policy should have been pro-active and spend 10 times more than any other country. We actually achieved that record.

However now that cold war with USSR is history, the chief enemy is the Jihadists, and we have near $17 national debt, US needs to take a hard look at foreign policy. We have more debt than any other country and also very high ratio of debt to GDP. I can’t think of anything more stupid in protecting oil supply lanes in the Straits of Hormuz from which China gets more oil than others. Borrowing from China to protect oil supplies to China? Can you think of anything more stupid?

I have zero problem with either Cruz or Paul in 2016. Both are very smart and logical people.
