Lots of education still needed

"The enemy is a system that wages war when it's profitable. The enemy is the CEOs who lay us off from our jobs when it's profitable. It's the insurance companies who deny us health care when it's profitable. It's the banks who take away our homes when it's profitable."

The problem is that the wars are NOT profitable. The problem is that some companies get special treatment. The problem is the lack of a truly free market for health care. The problem is that banks are allowed to counterfeit.

It's great that he senses that something's wrong, but not so great that he seems to have absolutely no idea what it is and how to fix it.

Please clarify if you would

You state above "The problem is that the wars are NOT profitable". Really? So Pratt & Whitney, GE, and Boeing (just to name a couple of the big ones) are all loosing money on war?

What an insightful man

I love all of his speech and how he tied all the corruption together behind what is killing America.

When the soldiers realize they have more in common with the Iraqi citizens than with those in the government who send them off to war, that is a true epiphany.

He is a well known member of Iraq Veterans Against the War

I'm not sure if this is an indication of "soldiers waking up" but it is promising to note the effect that outspoken service members had during the Vietnam era at ending that conflict. They of course got much press for their decent. If I'm not mistaken this was from a Winter Soldier hearing which took place almost several months ago.

This particular gentleman has been speaking out for years to include Congressional hearings. The people of this country need to be more supportive of Veterans speaking out. Most of the time it will get you about as much grief as standing on the corner holding a Ron Paul sign.

Great video, Great Speech. ....but there is a lesson for us...

When speaking against the war, he should stick to it. Because, by bring in his other lefty issues of government health care, etc, he looses half his audience who COULD have agreed.

So, here is the lesson for many of us RP libertarians.

When speaking or writing on an issue meant to sway and convince, DO NOT SPEAK of other issues.

Say you are going for Ending the Drug war, then during your talk you bring up ending the income tax -- oops, you just lost a potential convert.

The reason is, many people, even people at the DP, ONLY buy into a political "meal" if they agree with all the issues or know little about the other issues on the political plate.

Why people eat political issues by the Plate, is another discussion. Lets just recognize they do.

So for example, this great speech is not for the NeoConned Conservative. Once he/she hears the lefty other issues, they will -- base on that -walk away saying I cannot agree with this anti-war issue or I will be just another lefty ...

So, lets stick to our issues, ONE AT A TIME. The more you make it a meal that one must either buy into and eat, or not...... Then many will NOT.

Say you discussing the right to self defense, and guns. Do not talk about the or make ANY remarks about say the Federal Reserve or the Free market or the Iraq war or drug war.... leave the integration of the ONE political freedom issue you have to THEM. They will do the work to integrate this new position into the rest of their political views. They will decide what issues they want to have and self identify with on their own political plate.

Notice that this vet brings in racism. While I agree, many do not. Those that do not could have been brought in to his point against the war in other ways. If is point that racism that fuels the war and makes it possible, then stick to racism, even talking about the other sides racism too would help his case.

Again, this applies for the freedom advocates who are trying to win over converts to a particular freedom position.

In my opinion...

Good point.

Given any randomly selected adult walking down the street there is probably at least one political "issue" that we can both agree on. Of course, it won't be the same issue with everyone...

good point

I find it's also advantageous to wake people up to the fake left/right puppet show, the false choice, by introducing them to the existence of powerful bi-partisan groups like the CFR, Trilateral Commission, and the Bilderbergers. This is a good introductory video on the subject:

he blasts profits pretty bad

he blasts profits pretty bad at the end.

as long as he is simply referring to war profiteers, then this was fantastic - on the other hand, if he is calling for some utopia with the elimination of the profit system... screw this guy.

but i dont think that is the case. this was great to see!

I have wondered why

all the soldiers don't see this and feel this way. They are right there doing the "work." Can they not clearly see that what they are doing is dishonorable?

maybe they do...

Is this man safe???

Did you see Hillary flirtatiously looking up into Barry's beautiful smiling eyes looking back down into her teasing, oh so close, smiling face? Some people think if you flirt in the open, then you can't be faulted.

I would love to send this video to my neocon friends and I will be so hated when I do. But hey, I am already hated, why not finish it off.

That was awesome...

... and the REASON I do NOT support the troops!

Does my burka make my butt look fatwa?

Humanity is beautiful!

And so will be the world when we take it back from the inhumane.

Puppet masters motivated by

Puppet masters motivated by greed, power, and other forms of perversion use any and all types of methods to divide and conquer the masses. Today is no different from yesterday in that respect. Our perfect union was destroyed many years ago when the central government orchestrated a bloody coup that took the lives of 600,000 Americans(Civil War). Prior to the Civil War the States held power over the central government per the US Constituion, whereas today the central government has power over the States. Those in power today only pay lip service to the Constitution. No body hardly notice today the significance of that war. The names have changed but the profiteers are the same.

The titular head of the puppet masters responsible for the war has a memorial in his honor in Washington DC. Who will the next tyrant be? Where will we build his memorial? For clarification please read: http://www.lewrockwell.com/dilorenzo/dilorenzo-arch.html, or Lincoln Takes Command, by John Shiply Tilley.

Thanks for

posting.

Great video.

There is plenty of discrimination in the world, but most of it is really economically based and not racially based. ( Look at it this way, does anyone really care what color, religion or national origin Bill Gates is? Of course not. Most people want to be his best friend because he is the richest person in the world.)

LOL...this misleading video blames racism

The reason that some US soldiers are having doubts is because they realize that they have been lied to...that the US government is imperialistic in nature.

And some are realizing that the US government is merely part of some world order...that they are killing and dying for that world order.

Anyway, the whole racism ploy was merely another attempt to both make US citizens feel guilty and to divert people away from the real reasons why soldiers are 'waking up'.

Michael Prysner (Prisoner)...hmmm.

Racism is definitely a part of it

It just isn't the whole story by any means. The elite perpetrators have made sure the people in the US are racist against Muslims. They have driven that issue home. There are many soldier type people (militant, neocon) who hate the Muslims now and want to kill them every single one, because that is what we have been told they want to do to us. It has wrongly been reported over and over that Iran President wants to wipe Israel off the face of the earth and that is not even what he said. I know many people who really hate the Muslims and there is a report that their numbers are growing four or five times faster than our numbers because they intend to take over the world. There is someone who is way ahead of them in taking over the world that we need to worry about first.
