“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.
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.
“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.
