I’m unfortunately finding myself at odds with a grassroots political movement, that I’ve been involved with over the past several years, resulting from America’s Federal Government becoming too big, too intrusive, and too expensive to operate. It’s the Tea Party movement. Being a very fiscal conservative, I have a problem in that our military adventurism and expansionism has had dire consequences for America throughout our modern history. Of course, this is in terms of capital and human lives. However, unless the Tea Party movement has been hijacked by the Neo-con faction of the GOP, the Tea Party has incorporated a Neo-conservatism, Neo-Keynesian mantra of big-government statists. What I mean is, fighting endless, unaffordable wars in which America has to borrow the money in order to fight. All the while while America goes broke. This is not an argument about the misguided Tea Party views, so I’ll stop at that.
The problem with the average American’s view of the military is that it’s based on revisionist history and media soundbites. It’s pure propaganda in which Americans have attached themselves to keep them from having to deal with the truth. And the problem with learning the real truth about America’s military adventurism is that once the truth is known, you have the responsibility to educate others about it. Unfortunately, most Americans seem to have forgotten that fighting for truth is the equivalent of fighting for America’s survival.
So now I read Tea Party commentary that suggest Ron Paul is an isolationist. That leads me to believe that many Tea Party supporters are just so uninformed that they can’t even differentiate between “isolationism” and “non-interventionism”. To claim that Ron Paul is not a patriot that would not defend America is ludicrous and disingenuous, at best. You can bet the second an Iran or any other country whispered they were considering to nuke America, Ron Paul would take them out in a heartbeat. The other issue is the term Ron Paul refers to as “blowback”. Ron Paul didn’t make this stuff up. These are reports and analysis from the CIA themselves, who are the ones primarily engaged in covert action across the world propping up the better of the world’s worst dictators. So don’t blame Ron Paul for this. He’s just telling the truth as any patriotic American should do.
Please do yourself a favor. Veiw this video and do some research for yourself and spread the truth. Please do America a favor and pass this video to everyone who buys the media spin on our out-of-control military spending. The military industrial complex has developed one of the most incestuous relationships with our Federal Government and has become another corporate welfare programs that benefit some of the largest political campaign contributors in America. It’s time to suppoprt freedom and the American Constitution. Only in today’s America does supporting American patriotism and the Consitution qualify a person as a kook.
Oh well, if that’s the case, then I think I’ll just hop in with Ron Paul and take a ride in his “Kook De Ville”.
