I’m surprised it’s not more. It probably is. Pretty interesting that this article appeared in Stars and Stripes.
What is with the hawks? They just can’t help themselves.That Graham is in now with casino magnate and neocon billionaire Sheldon Adelson probably has something to do with his new interest in the presidency. Now all ole’ Lindsey has to do is get some people who will actually vote for him. That’s going to be tough.
It’s true. There is a predisposition toward war in the official corridors of Washington DC now. But this country was supposed to mind its own business. That was a founding principal.
We are about to make another mistake in the Middle East because our president (and nearly everyone else in DC) took the bait ISIS set. But let’s be honest, our “leaders” wanted to take the bait. Obama and McCain have been miffed ever since the people rose up and kept them from bombing Syria about this time last year.
Is it possible that Anne Coulter’s cocktail dresses are cutting off oxygen to her brain? Is it possible that Ms. Coulter is just naturally a busybody who despises libertarians because she can’t help but stick her nose into other people’s business? Is it possible that Ms. Coulter is little more than a partisan hack with little philosophical meat to her positions?
Wow, things just got really weird in the Senate Intelligence Committee, and awesome. I am very pleased to see this. I think the move on ISIS is a political one and that is just tragic. It will be more tragic if we go in there. Obama has no legitimacy at this point domestically and has even less in the overseas arena. Frankly the administration appears willing to sacrifice the lives of Americans so that it can keep the Senate.
Yeah, I said it.
I have always hated the term “homeland security.” What are we part of Bismark’s Germany? That aside the name of the agency isn’t the only thing wrong with the agency. There’s the whole “that it exists at all” thing.
Some people sure appear to be.
Politics continues to get more and more interesting. Things are changing in a big way.
It’s not all driven by Rand Paul. Technology (and social media specifically) has a lot to do with it. The economy sputtering does too. And of course the general war fatigue.
But Rand is articulating a message which reflects where many Americans are right now, in a way that I’ve never seen in my lifetime.
