Just more evidence that there is barely a dime’s worth of difference between the two major political cults (parties) once they are in power. The United States just initiated violence against a country that has not attacked us. Sure, there may be some bad stuff going on over there, but how is it we so randomly pick and choose when to intervene in these countries. I’m sure there are lots of people who would have rather had their tax money spent intervening in Darfur. Another fine reason why people should be free to support whatever causes they want, but not forced by threat of government violence being done to them to support those causes they do not. It does call the question as to whether or not the United Nations will come to the aid of freedom fighters and patriots in America, maybe even with their own “no fly zone” edicts, when the time finally comes to kick our out-of-control government to the curb. Although, it is kind of hard to imagine U.S. F-22s strafing people in Idaho, Montana or New Hampshire (I’m rooting for someplace warm like South Carolina or Florida, but not banking on it).If George W. Bush was attacking Libya, the press and the left would be screaming about it. There would be anti-war rallies already lined up and Code Pink would get their panties in a bunch and start dumping blood, or red paint or whatever else on unsuspecting political folks. Gotta love the intellectual honesty amongst the politically active. Except for the Libertarians you won’t find it anywhere.So, let us take a quick look back at Barack “O-Bomb-A” Obama’s statements about war and especially the kind of war Iraq was. Yes, let’s examine what he said as we keep in mind that we are still in Iraq and Afghanistan and still conducting military activities in Pakistan and Yemen. Covert operations and software viruses unleashed on Iran.”I will remove one or two brigades a month, and get all of our combat troops out of Iraq within 16 months. … Let there be no doubt: I will end this war.” – Barack Obama, 2007″If people tell you that we cannot afford to invest in education or health care or fighting poverty, you just remind them that we are spending $10 billion a month in Iraq. And if we can spend that much money in Iraq, we can spend some of that money right here in Cincinnati, Ohio, and in big cities and small towns in every corner of this country.” – Barack Obama, July 12, 2008″I don’t want to just end the war, but I want to end the mindset that got us into war in the first place.” – January 31, 2008″We live in a more dangerous world, partly as a consequence of Bush’s actions, primarily because of this war in Iraq that should have never been authorized or waged.” – June 3, 2007Q: In what circumstances would the president have constitutional authority to bomb Iran without seeking a use-of-force authorization from Congress?A: The President does not have power under the Constitution to unilaterally authorize a military attack in a situation that does not involve stopping an actual or imminent threat to the nation. – Barack Obama on Dec 20, 2007 QuestionnaireThat last one is a keeper. I actually agree with the President on that statement completely. Too bad he clearly didn’t mean it. Can we just flat not trust a (insert expletive here) word these jokers say? Or maybe there is some twisted syndrome that creeps in. Once one of these bozos gets elected and the opportunity for THEM to become some kind of warrior, action hero (from the comfort of the Oval Office) they just can’t resist. Who can say?And remember, Democrats keep voting to oppose this stuff and it never ends. Republicans keep voting for smaller, less obtrusive government and, well, they never get that either. Wake up and smell the time for change – start voting for people who mean it when they say something. How man times do people have to, like Charlie Brown, have the football pulled away before they quit trying to kick the ball?
