Just so we’re on the same page: If Trump is the GOP nominee and you cast your vote for Hillary (as GOPe is threatening), you will be voting AGAINST the 2nd Amendment, AGAINST the 1st Amendment, AGAINST the 4th Amendment, AGAINST the 9th Amendment, AGAINST the 10th Amendment, AGAINST a strong military, FOR the Regulatory State, and AGAINST our future.
A vote for Hillary will be a vote AGAINST Article One of the Constitution. Executive Orders will become standard presidential operating procedure, and laws will become archaic; where GOPe refused to overturn Obama EO’s for[…]
Take the long view re: Belgium.
The Kaiser chose the short road to Paris in 1914, in another of the Franco-Prussian wars, ignoring Belgium’s neutrality. This led directly to the entry of the British into WW1, which led to America’s foolish entry, as well.
WW1 begat the fall of the Ottoman Empire, the British and French partitioning of the Middle East and South Asia, the rise of the USSR, Weimar, NAZIs, WW2, PRC, DPRK, Korean War, Vietnam, Cold War, Modern Islamist terror, Kuwait, 9-11, the Intifadas, Afghanistan, Iraq, Hamas, PLO, Syria, ISIS…. and now, the bloodiest century in […]
Western Liberal democracies developed, grew, and thrived by defending and expanding human rights – and by defending themselves with total war. VD Hanson has written two books about the use by the West of total war, “The Western Way of War,” and “Carnage and Culture,” two must-reads to truly understand how Western Civilization grew and thrived.
No indication exists that these same democracies have any interest in survival as they now are rejecting defending themselves from another civilization intent on destroying those rights – and Western Civilization itself.
That this surprises anyone shows only the near-complete […]
This is a good column about ISIS. It is well-researched and worth reading. You should read it.
Because it is well-researched, it puts the lie to Obama and the other apologists ignorantly insisting ISIS is not about islam. The periodical is the Atlantic – not a right wing publication by any stretch of the imagination.
The columnist goes to great lengths to inform the reader of the theological background and actions and behaviors of the ISIS savages. The online article includes a video interview of the columnist, including a discussion of how ISIS felt about the piece (they thought it […]
This meme that sending our guys to get killed killing their guys in the Middle East has anything to do with our national security is just wrong. It’s why every GOP candidate who just wants to keep on doing what we’ve been doing and somehow get different results is wrong. It’s a waste of lives and money that CANNOT achieve the goal we say we want to achieve.
Attacking unorganized barbarians in the ME, waging war against barbaric savages who possess only small arms, has nothing to do with the safety of America. THAT is a false premise.
Wars are […]
