With Romney confirming my early prediction that the Republicans are deliberately throwing the election, the neocons are on their way to completely discrediting themselves politically. With that accomplished, Republican politicians such as Rand Paul, Justin Amash, and others coming up in the ranks, who question the war-all-the-time “foreign policy” dogma that has dominated the GOP since the cold war era, will have much more space to advance their previously heretical views. In the context of the past decade, the first order of business for any pro-peace political movement must be the utter destruction of the neocons’ political machine, which means ending their influence in the Republican party. With Romney defeated — in a landslide, I predict — the way will be opened to the further growth and development of the Paulian movement.
Of course this is the kind of reasoning that would be totally lost on the rank and file GOP. And the lady in question would absolutely swoon at the suggestion that we should seek to free our foreign policy from the control of the Israeli lobbyists.
