A bumper sticker on the front of my car features pictures of Bush and Obama with the words "Nothing Changed". On the domestic front, the Federal Government continues to grow and spend borrowed money; on the international front, the Federal Government continues to attack & bomb various countries & send "Foreign Aid" to the rest. It is no wonder that our Nation is about bankrupt.
No doubt, George Washington was being naive when he warned against foreign adventures, both "Habitual Hatred" and "Habitual Fondness" for foreign countries, as well as entangling alliances. James Madison was being naive when he warned us that "no nation can preserve its freedom in the midst of continual warfare" as well as "if tyranny and oppression come to this land, it will be in the guise of fighting a foreign enemy". Jefferson was a fool to advocate "Peace, commerce, and honest friendship with all nations, entangling alliances with none". He indeed sounded like a skinflint when he stated "The spirit of this country is totally adverse to a large military force". The great Alexander Solzenitsyn warned us that "A state of war only serves as an excuse for domestic tyranny".
Hasn't anybody figured out that with George Bush and Barrack Obama having pursued the same policies and actions might be a good reason to distrust and question those policies. Some folks claim that little Iran, which might develop primitive nuclear weapons 10 years from now, poses more of a threat than the Soviet Union, with its tens of thousands of nuclear weapons, did. They advocate attacking Iran, duplicating Hitler's tactics with Poland.
It is suggested that some of you, instead of spending your time watching CNN, MSNBC, or FOX, read some of the writings of Washington, Adams, Jefferson, & Madison.
Dr. Ron Paul is the closest candidate you can get to Washington, Jefferson, & Madison. The rest are just imitators of Benito Mussolini.
