    “Whence shall we expect the approach of danger? Shall some trans-Atlantic giant step the earth and crush us at a blow? Never! All the armies of Europe & Asia could never take a drink from the Ohio River, or make a track along the Blue Ridge. If destruction be our lot, we ourselves must be its author and finisher. As a nation of free men, we will live forever, or die by national suicide.”
    -Abraham Lincoln, 1838, speaking in Congress.

    ps: He didn’t hire a speechwriter!

    The Bush Administration let the terrorists win. We became something disgraceful. The Obama Administration continues their shameful policies. We have become our own worst nightmare.

    We have become the world’s worst nightmare.
    Our giant military forces the world to feed us raw material and base the price of oil on our dollar.
    We subvert any country we feel like and force democratically elected presidents out if we don’t care for their politics.
    We are the enforcement tool of big business as it gobbles up the world for its personal profit.

    Only a foolish right winger would think that killing people and incarceration for life violating our own laws would do nothing to infuriate others. Yet that is what we hear all the time. Mostly from our right wing corporate news. And our ever expanding foot print in war is now in Africa too. 49 out of the 52 nations in there so far. D or R it makes no difference. It is the P and O that are running things.

    The US created such terrorists and seems to want to from its actions. The more reason to compromise our Republic into a de facto Empire.

    Obama took what was done be fore and expanded it. Like the Drones are now used at many orders of magnitude more than under GWB. Unofficially we are in so many countries it numbers somewhere between 100 and 150 and growing.
    -
    Because of our treaty, which is law here, when Pres. Obama chose to protect Bush & company for their war crimes in torture and invasion he too became a war criminal. Yet though they will never be prosecuted they are still restricted as to where they can go because they know that there are others who want them for trial. Why such people as Henry Kissinger doesn’t travel much. (The butchery in Vietnam and Guatemala and other places he was involved in, etc.)

    When the statue was refurbished for her birthday, it was the INTERIOR, unseen parts, that were most damaged, and dangerous to her survival. So it is with our government actually, at all levels, where those least competent, or outright crazy, operate in the shadows, like in their votes in the House of Representatives, or their filibuster threats in the Senate. Throw in decades of changes to regulations, mostly from Republicans, that take away oversight, threatening again our TRUE freedoms and safety, and you can find a path that does lead to Obama’s complicity in some of these areas as well, done to avoid yet more blathering and obstructionism from the right.

    Ike also warned us in the very same speech in fact against the university-scientific research complex, (as an example Global Warming “consensus”) but no one ever mentions that.

    In Kennebunkport, Maine (Where his daddy’s mansion is) most of the gift shops carry T-shirts with George W’s picture on it, with “Do you miss me yet?” printed below.

    “The Bush Administration let the terrorists win. We became something disgraceful. The Obama Administration continues their shameful policies. We have become our own worst nightmare.”

    The US government was the primary architect of that nightmare with its Cold War diplomacy. The US government installed or propped up most of the dictators our military was later called on to depose. The Regan Administration trained and armed Bin Laden and the Taliban to fight against the Soviets. Iran hates the US mostly because the US government backed a coup d’état on behalf of oil companies after the democratically elected Iranian prime minister nationalized their oil industry. The government later secretly sold them weapons. The US sold materials to Saddam Hussein that could be used to make chemical and biological weapons, including anthrax and bubonic plague.

    “Two Wars that never would have occurred had the Democrats called him a liar and voted No to go to war. You do not understand how our Government works. The President must obtain a Majority Vote +one before he can send troops to any foreign nation to remove an ‘Evil Dictator’ or to avenge an attack upon our soil.”

    1) While only Congress can declare war, the President has the right to send troops into combat without declaring war. The US hasn’t declared war since WWII.

    2) The Republicans bullied the Democrats into approving the Iraqi invasion with the suggestion that voting “no” was unpatriotic. The Democrats didn’t possess enough political courage to stand up to the Republicans. Hell, the Dems still have trouble with that and they’re in power.

    ^^ Just keep voting for comrade Pelosi and Leader Obama and you will get your Socialist dream.
    Luckily most productive, sane Americans don’t want us to be a socialist wasteland like Greece or Cuba.
    Freeloaders like you are free to move.
