Ike spent his presidency fighting against his own Pentagon because he didn’t want a huge conventional military to go adventuring. He knew modern war as no one else did, or likely ever will again, and saw no point in wasting lives or treasure on foolish adventurism, & told our enemies to stand down or get nuked. They stood down. He hated CIA and, after the U2 shoot down, never again spoke to them. He warned us about the Military-Industrial-Complex when he left.
To say we didn’t listen is the understatement of the post-Enlightenment Age.
Nixon likely would not have intervened […]
If you believe voting Bush-Walker-Christie-Kasich will change ANYTHING, please explain the past 6 years. I’ll wait as you marshal your argument and gather your supporting facts.
If you believe the political class has failed you, please explain the purpose of voting for anyone but Rand, Trump or (maybe) Cruz. I’ll wait for you to put together your logical argument.
If you believe we need a military powerful enough to win wars, please explain why we haven’t tried winning since 1945.

“It is Too Late to be Sooner, and Soon it will be Too Late to be Later” – Guys & Dolls
Sooner or later, when y’all get tired of pretending the political class will fix the problem THAT IS the political class, and decide to save our liberty instead of whining about its being taken – to actually DO something about it – be sure & call me.

- Governor Walker: You say no exception to a prohibition on abortion should be made for instances of rape and incest.

We don’t want Trump to “act more presidential.” We want the other contenders to start acting like Trump: Aggressively pro-American, pro-Rule of Law, pro-We the People.
Because the Ruling Class – isn’t.
With Trump’s rise in the polls – and the deterioration of the expectation of position for Bush – the media, GOP pundits, 15-minutes-of-fame focus group low-info voters corralled by Frank Lunz, and RNC head Reince Priebus refuse to understand, or just are unable to recognize, what is driving the popularity of Trump.
Demanding that Trump “act more presidential” is an absurd misreading of the body politic.
