Time to quench the thirst of the tree of liberty and redden it a tad!
Dr. Paul is exactly right - we have no business wasting our treasure on all these military misadventures. What gets my gall is that the majority of Americans (north of 65% in a recent poll) completely agree with that. Not having great faith in polls since I have yet to be polled, I tend to believe that more than 80% want these wars to stop immediately.
Meanwhile, "our" government is strongly on the other side of the fence, having been bought and paid for by the MIC. They have no problem spending a trillion on illegal wars of choice, not to mention the billions it sends in aid to foreign countries, and unnecessary military bases across the globe. Do we really need these palatial embassies in Iraq and Afghanistan while homeless Americans huddle in tent cities across this once-great nation?
Clearly, the government does not represent us, and therefore is not legitimate. But, with the constitution subverted, the checks and balances of the constitutional tri-lateral shared power of the government thwarted, what can we do? We can't vote them out of power when all the elections are rigged, thanks to a complicit mainstream media, greatly aided by Diebold, as we have seen from 2000 till now (maybe even before).
There is only one thing left to do. We have to wrest our power back from these thugs, without violence if possible, or at the end of a sabre if necessary. Our last chance to do this non-violently is to get Dr. Paul elected - by any means possible. There will never be a chance to do it again after this election, so we have to pull out all the stops and make it happen.
If despite our best efforts (and you have to look in the mirror and know that you did put your best effort in), if he is prevented from ascending the presidency as we all want him to, then there will be no recourse left but to cross the Potomac.
Its our choice.
