Rand Paul's Paleo Problem

I tend to agree with Paolo. The "outline" may be plausible, but it's more likely a cover for a deeper-seated resentment for the Paul family and those conservatives/libertarians not hip with the neo-con nation building that puts Israel in the driver's seat.

Excellent article. In fact, check out this new blog geared directly toward the subject of seeking the power of government as a replacement for God entirely: http://rightontheword.com/2013/06/27/emboldening-the-gays/

Five Annoying Types Of Republicans

jr160 Wrote: Jun 24, 2013 10:03 AM
Mr. Hawkins, you should have left type number 2 (The Purists) off the list. Having included it you seem to contradict a lot of your own argument -- that these annoying Republicans are annoying because they refuse to stand on principle and hold on to their integrity. I agree with that argument, but ... Why should a purist cover his eyes or hold his nose so he can begrudgingly vote for a candidate he doesn't believe represents a quality choice for America? Just like, why should a Republican faun over compromise? And why should a Republican block the stream of feedback from constituents after he's in the DC bubble? And why should a Republican think excessive spending on "conservative" pet projects is okay for him but not for his counterpart? And why should a Republican think that fawning over the political establishment is not selling out the conservative cause? Do you see my point? Or are you trying to rationalize your own voting transgressions of elections past?
No. There should be no Federally required system. At worst, the States should control such a system. At best, the employers and the prospective employees should be able to engage in a contract that leaves the government as much removed from the equation as possible. Immigration reform would not need any such e-verify program if the incentives to immigrate illegally and hire illegals were not perverted by an out-of-control welfare system and a monetary system controlled by elites that artificially manages the price of money and thus wages, inflation, job growth, etc. etc. etc. It is people like you who are so cluelessly willing to forfeit our individual liberties. As a wise, blue monkey once said: Think harder.
What is wrong with you, Robert102? You could tell us why it's garbage, but that might require you actually have to think about what Mr. Chapman has said. In the meantime here are the Cliffs Notes: 1) immigration reform will ultimately carry unintended consequences just like nearly every piece of legislation because it is a compromise by a bunch of guys who don't have the guts to take a stand or are too dumb/corrupt to do the right thing, 2) and those unintended consequences will easily snowball into a monstrosity that's likely to erode even more of our privacy which leaves us helpless in avoiding the numerous and unavoidable infringements on our personal lives. The road to hell is paved with good intentions; it would be better if it were paved with Congressmen.
Very good. This is absolutely the way we need to go. And we need to get the government out of most everything else as well. The problem is conservative politicians feel they need to build their own special interest factions to ensure such a vote-getting strategy, as perfected by the left, doesn't continue to scrape voters away from the GOP. Unfortunately, most voters aren't smart enough to realize a hands-off policy is actually in their interest -- thus the perpetual growth of government.

Obama's Lincoln Presumption

RONALD363: I hope you're joking. You realize you just exercised liberal logic -- name-calling and building straw men -- right? Lincoln was the great centralizer and he took the country to war for that reason. He simply used slavery as a cover for pitting Americans against one another to "save the Union". Lincoln was the racist and would have much rather sent all slaves back to Africa just as would the rest of his northern brethren. Do you not see the parallels? Barack Obama is a centralizer -- that's all he's ever known and desired. He channels Lincoln because he admires Lincoln's politics. The sad part is the American people have been hoodwinked into believing Lincoln was a great man. I'm surprised Mona doesn't acknowledge it.

You're right -- we, the people, don't get to pick our wars ... not if we keep voting for the D and R hacks that perpetuate the status quo. We have the power interests with their hands on the strings of our CIA puppets who lay the groundwork for corrupt regimes, dictatorships and extremist pockets in the Middle East and Latin America. These power interests DO pick our wars. We are then bombarded with propaganda to create fear so that we can rationalize our preemptive and evasive action ("national security") in these countries/regions we've set up. Save oil, there have been no vital US interests in any recent wars. There is nothing for us to win and everything for us to lose. We must stop creating the environment for war and stop picking war.
