Wow you're so important and superior. Ever look at your need to be right? What's your point? We're the worst most horrible country that ever was?
Yeah, Japan was just taking a stroll looking to borrow a few rice fields.
You can look at US history as us always being the bad guys go ahead. That's what our enemies do.


Yes. I have a need to be right. I thought that was the point of researching, debating and revising?

How do you come up with your opinions? Just pick things out of mid air? Seems like a vague philosophy.

I didn't say what Japan did was right or wrong. I said it wasn't our business nor was it our right since I didn't see "protection of the world" in the Constitution anywhere.

You call yourself a "Tea Party" person. You'd think adherence to the Constitution would be something you'd want to do being as it's right there in your mission statement.

As I said....neo cons and people afraid of a black man. It's too bad too. It wasn't like that when the Ron Paul Revolution started morphing into the Tea Party. Only when those *censored* Dick Armey and Glenn Beck jumped on the band wagon did things go downhill.

No I don't. I just put up the link. Put up any quote by me that said that and I'll give you a ton of anthracite.
You're the one that hurled insults at The Tea Party.

Well well well, that's not very golden rule-ish. :D

I don't know who Dick Armey is, if you don't like him he's probably a patriot. Don't forget, Glenn Beck, who most of us admire; exposed the avowed communist Van "give dem da welf" Jones and got him kicked out of the Ocommuna administration.
Define neo con, it seems to be a favorite phrase of yours. And as to "afraid of a black man", are you mistakenly referring to our current mixed race president? Personally, I just had a nice conversation with one of my mixed race friends yesterday. I lived in a racially diverse neighborhood for ten years, in the most diverse state in the union, New Jersey. What's your community like?
Hey, that Benghazigate thing isn't looking too good for Obama is it? He likes to pretend "his" one accomplishment of getting Bin Laden ,eliminated Al Quada. Remember the famous photo of him in the situation room? Look close and you'll see they had to give him a jacket to cover up his golf shirt after they had to pull him off the golf course that day. Maybe he can still pull off that lie until after the election. Or maybe he'll just take off to Venezuela and you can appoint the nice old baby doctor as leader of the free world. :P

Neo con's like to talk about "limited government" until it comes to the military industrial complex then all bets are off and then no amount is enough to "keep us safe" or "protect our interests".

Starting to sound familiar?

So you aren't a Tea Party person. Why advocate for them if you don't share their beliefs?

Beck is a shitbag who suggested Ron Paul supporters might be home grown terrorists in a time and country where terrorists can be locked up forever without a trial and now even killed, anywhere, anytime.

I don't take kindly to that kind of talk.

Even the Department of Homeland Security thinks I might be a terrorist because I talk about the Constitution, own a gun and have a Ron Paul sticker on my truck.

A Mitt *censored* Romney isn't going to change any of that.

You know a lot of us support Beck as a patriot; but you insult him and then get offended when we respond. I'd like to see a proof clip or Utube video of your provocative silly statement.
You have a nice family, I'm sitting here alone arguing for sport, what's your motivation?

OK I'll take that as you're upset that Ron Paul was just too quirky to have a sensible go at the Presidency. Remember he was asked in one of the earlier debates about how he would treat Iran. He got BOOED when he said, "With the golden rule." Iran is a state sponsor of terrorism, capiche? This is all just opinions flying back and forth here, but the proof was in the pudding that Americans don't take Ron Paul seriously. That's where he lacks leadership.

I don't quite know where you're coming from when you post a really good post about " A great political ad", that most of us appreciate; and then rail against the same republican party.
We all know about the military industrial complex and the munitions makers that The America First movement that cried out about it even before WWII. Just saying again, that movement dissolved when it became apparent that the very survival of freedom depended on us fighting back with everything we had, and quickly.
You seem to be another guy that wants his cake and eat it too.

How could you say that when Goldwater had a famous quote that he wanted "To bomb Viet Nam back into the stone age."

Your lack of consistency is apparent.

I don't disagree with that.

If I go to war, I want to use the W. T. Sherman philosophy of "total war".

The ONLY way you "win" is fight until the enemy is unable or unwilling to fight back.

I probably wouldn't have supported going into Vietnam to begin with, but once there, get it over with quick.

So you are saying that following the Constitution automatically disqualifies someone as a leader? Why do all leaders take an oath to defend the Constitution?

I hardly believe being booed in a roomful of neo cons "proves" much of anything except that neo cons LOVE killing brown people.

As far as Iran being a "state sponsor of terror", I guess that depends on which side of the bomb you are on.

Afghanistan is a perfect example. When the Mujhadeen were fighting the Russians, we called them "freedom fighters" but when they are fighting us, they are "terrorists".

Same guys, just shooting different people. And the kicker is, we funded them then and we are funding them now. How much money are we still shipping to the Middle East?

Does that make the US a "state sponsor of terrorism?"

Maybe General Wesley Clark can shed some light on things for you.

So clearly per Glen Beck (via obviously strained and stretched logic and inference via raising from the dead a figure from the mid 1600's, which means here major truth twisting, or, OK, outright lying) Ron Paul (probably the most peace loving and peace desiring politician of our time) is nothing less than a radical domestic terrorist who (among other things) wants to blow up the government.

Is it a coincidence that November 5th, 2007 was one year from the 2008 election, and one year from the election is traditionally the day on which most Presidential candidates launch their campaigns in earnest, or did Ron Paul launch his campaign on that date specifically in reverence and commemoration of Guy Fawkes? Glen Beck is a clown. Thank God I don't have a television, or follow Glen Beck.

Actually I just watched the Glen Beck video. I heard it from his lips. I watched, and I listened, and I paid attention, and I heard him loud and clear!!!! He is a stooge for the Neo-Cons.

Do you agree with Glen Beck that Ron Paul is a domestic terrorist?

Man,
You sure are emotional. Can't really give a rational response to someone who's hysterical. Nice comeback though on the Glenn Beck thing, a five year old video posted by a staunch Ron Paul supporter. :D

Imagine we pulled out worldwide right now from every US base. It takes time though, months. Would that make you happy? And THAT wouldn't lead to other global conflicts? I think I get your concepts, I just don't like to rail against my own country like you do. I don't really care if radical islam is brown or purple, I know what the intent is.
