War-Crazed Republicans and Conservatives
Posted by Laurence Vance on February 14, 2013 06:56 PM
According to the Washington Post, Senate Republicans blocked a vote on Thursday for Chuck Hagel’s nomination as secretary of defense. Now, I am no fan of Hagel. But why are Republicans in the Congress and their conservative supporters outside of the Congress so against Hagel? Regardless of what they say, the reason is because Hagel is not seen as being as bloodthirsty and war-crazed as they are. The GOP cannot be reformed or made libertarian leaning. It is fully devoted to the warfare state.
