I write you today in the hope that you will change course and oppose the passage of the National Defense Authorization Act.
Well the short answer is no absolutely not, in fact just the opposite. However I must say I use to think he was. When I first heard about his non-interventionist ideas I thought “are you kidding me”? “There are terrorists all over the world who hate and want to kill us”. Of course at the time I didn’t consider that when you kill almost a million innocent children in the middle east and then occupy their country that it might make a few middle east parents angry. Imagine if some country dropped a bomb on your kids? But really I only thought about this after I had already come to the conclusion that Paul was correct. My change of heart came about gradually and it was directly related to my investigation of the history of our interventionist policies. I will share some of what I’ve learned below. My hope is that it will create enough of a question in your mind to prompt you to further investigate on your own. There is so very much to cover and I simply don’t have the time to address but again the following should give you enough to spark interest in any reasonably honest person that actually wants to form a rational opinion and not simply regurgitate the talking points and propaganda the media and 2 party system feed us.
Recently Congress passed a bill called The National Defense Authorization Act – HR 1540. It would be better described if they called it Americas Police State Act. I believe this currently the single most important issue facing the American people. It changes the course of history and wipes out much of what it means to be an American (and our Constitution) without even raising a weapon. They will accomplish with a pen what others have failed to do with war.
Someone took the recent Brett Baier interview with Mitt Romney and edited in past clips of Mitt. Each time he lies or says he was misquoted they cut to a previous interview that proves the accusation. Just beautiful.
The more I read about Newt Gingrich the more convinced I become that he may be a sociopath. I’m not saying he is one but I’m suspicious.
Man sometimes WordPress can be frustrating. I recently upgraded my blog to the newest version and started getting a Warning: Invalid argument supplied for foreach() on each page. The string continues with a bunch of other junk and ends by pointing to (ending with) class-wp-admin-bar.php. After much searching and a variety of fairly complex posts telling me to change user roles and edit PHPmyAdmin bla bla bla I found a very simple solution. Apparently the newest version of Word Press adds a new toolbar in your admin area at the top which is supposed to help you navigate. Kind of fancy, kind of fricking annoying.
