What’s At Stake in the 2014 Election

Beware of "Game-over" political thought, it's the siren call of the Republican establishment. Now that they have raped conservative Tea Party candidates during the primaries, they are simply playing damage control. What election hasn't there been this warning to conservatives from Rove Republicans: "Even though we, too, support higher government spending, higher taxes, in the form of an even-increasing national debt, and less personal liberty, if you don't vote for us today, all is lost"? Sure, I hope amnesty doesn't happen, but it's these same 'Chamber of Commerce' Republicans that are now calling for your support in November that support its passage. Why aren't they so worried about the possible effect this may have at the polls as they now want us to be? The only true way to save this country from itself is to keep as many Rove Republicans out of Washington in the years to come. If the country is going to hell in a hand basket because grassroot, Republican Tea Party, conservatives didn't vote for the Rove Republican, its far better to have the Democrat in office to take the blame for the country hitting the economic skids than the RINO Republican. And yes; there are many more years to come and many more elections to follow. The fight for the Republican Party heart and soul has just begun. ex animo davidfarrar

Bomb or Occupy -- or Neither?

Obama is right...introducing ground troops into this ISIS fight will only insure radical Islam escapes some day to raise its ugly head again in the future. This is ABOVE ALL a fight for the heart and sole of Islam, not land or politics. Use American air, perhaps with a couple of warthogs thrown into the mix from Turkey, but let the Sunni states do the actual cleansing. ex animo davidfarrar
The issue here is whether Americans still see themselves as members in a constitutional republic by "consent", or as mere subjects by government fiat in an ever-increasing web of federal power and authority. If Sen. Cruz believes himself to be an Art. II §1 cl. 4 natural born Citizen, he believes the latter over the former. ex animo davidfarrar
And yet the Department of Homeland Security Science and Technology Center of Excellence, project study, "START", has just identified 'sovereign citizens' as the nation's top domestic threat. At times I wonder just who is leading this country: American patriots or Muslim Brotherhood sympathizers. ex animo davidfarrar
The sad fact that a Louisiana duck-call magnate understands this urgency and our Commander-in-Chief does not is because Phil is an American patriot, while our Commander in chief is a Muslim Brotherhood sympathize, if not a Muslim, himself. ex animo davidfarrar

The President Is Not Checked Out

Whether by commission or omission, the legacy of Obama's presidency will be one of weakening America's world standing. Whether this turns out to be a bad thing or a good thing for the United States, history alone will tel. But as long as Islamist are fighting Islamist, NATO has awoken and, hopefully, plays a bigger role in their own defense, and many Pacific countries now see the growing need to work together to confront China's expansionism, the U.S. no longer has to play the "policeman" of the world, and that's a good thing. ex animo davidfarrar

Should The U.S. Declare War On ISIS?

This so, so boring. Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi doesn't even have enough brains to be imaginative. He is using the same tactics bin Laden used in 9/11 to lure the US into another ground war in the Middle East so he can stop intra-Islamic fighting long enough to repeal the infidels and gain a Caliphate. ISIS is already dead. It's large American equipment is nothing more than large air targets now, easily destroyed on any major battlefield. All they have left to attack are small undefended villages and mount terror campaigns, that tactically, will not change anything on the ground. Of course, this doesn't mean Obama and his minions in Congress won't try can scary the bejesus out of the American people to be able to spend even more money we don't have, but that is all. ex animo davidfarrar
Please note: historically speaking, Blackstone's Commentaries can be viewed as a conservative backlash to the radical liberalism of the English Glorious Revolution, as articulated by radical liberalist such as James Tyrrell, in his work: 'The Patriarch unmonarch’d' [1681], Algernon Sidney's: 'Discourses Concerning Government', and Samuel Rutherford's view that kings ruled not by divine right, but by the consent of the people: "We hold that the covenant is made betwixt the king and the people, betwixt mortal men; but they both bind themselves before God to each other". [Samuel Rutherford, Lex Rex (1644)]. This view was also reflected in John Locke claiming, as he does in his 'Two Treatises of Government': "Men, being, as has been said, by nature all free, equal and independent, no one can be put out of this estate and subjected to the political power of another without his own consent. The only way whereby anyone divests himself of his natural liberty and puts on the bonds of civil society is by agreeing with other men to join and unite into a community for their comfortable, safe and peaceable living one amongst another, in a secure enjoyment of their properties and a greater security against any that are not of it. [John Locke, Second Treatise on Government (1698).] So when it came time for the founders and framers of our own US Const. to establish citizenship, it would be based on the concept of citizenship by "consent" to the sovereignty of We, the People, rather than subjectship. ex animo davidfarrar
The only reason for ISIS to mount a 9-11 type terrorist attack against the US is to get US infidel boots back on the ground again in the Middle East so both the Sunnis and the Shias will stop fighting each other long to fight the infidels. We were stupid enough to fall for this the first time around. I hope someone is smart enough not to fall for it again. Of course, the US should remain engaged, but let's play it smart this time around. As long as the Sunnis and the Shias are fighting each other, US Middle East policy isn't that far off. ex animo davidfarrar
