ALL DEMOCRACIES ARE DOOMED TO FAILURE, FOR AS SOON AS THE PUBLIC REALIZES THAT IT CAN VOTE ITSELF PERKS AND SPECIAL PRIVILEGES, IT WILL DO SO ENDLESSLY UNTIL THE DEMOCRACY HAS TURNED INTO AN EMPTY SOUP BOWL OF DUST.
And again, one of the prime ways it does this is through war -- the "health of the state" -- as Randolph Bourn once observed.
And surprise! The current government has involved WE THE PEOPLE in four or five wars that were all undeclared by Congress. HOW do you think it was able to do this? Borrowed money. Monetizing debt. UN resolutions. All this is sneaky. These machinations must NOT be permitted. WE THE PEOPLE are in charge of when we will go to war and when we will be at peace. THIS IS OUR SOLEMN DECISION. We make this decision through our Representatives in Congress, NOT the President or the UN.
It is OUR little boys that do the fighting of wars. How DARE a bunch of entrenched Democratic and Republican congressmen delegate their responsibility for declaring wars when WE THE PEOPLE have not given them OUR express consent to send our little boys to their deaths. WHO THE f*ck DO THESE PEOPLE THINK THEY ARE?
And if WE THE PEOPLE want a war badly enough, WE THE PEOPLE better PAY for it CASH -- none of this BORROWING crap. If it's not "just" enough to PAY for, then it's NOT a "just war." And THAT is the acid test. An honorable man pays for his fights, he does not make his children pay for them through debt. We are a dishonorable society, thanks to the infiltration of cultural Marxism through the Hollywood-based movie industry, the New York media, the government-run school system and the pseudo-intellectuals spewed out by the nation's filthy liberal colleges.
If we don't TAX ourselves EQUALLY to pay for a war, then that war is FRIVOLOUS and criminal. And the killing of little boys in another man's nation for an unjust cause -- like a preemptive war or a war for oil -- is just as criminal as killing our little boys.
Again, WE THE PEOPLE should be willing to pay for our just wars through taxation, NOT borrowed money thorough the machinations of sneaky congressmen and the United Nations. This is despicable. Government, through these actions, has shown that it is irresponsible with debt. Thus the privilege of borrowing must be terminated for this government. Let the United States set an example for the rest of the world on this issue, and if it leads to our demise, so be it. As Arthur O'Shaughnessy once wrote:
"With wonderful deathless ditties, We build up the world's great cities, And out of a fabulous story. We fashion an empire's glory: One man with a dream, at pleasure, Shall go forth and conquer a crown; And three with a new song's measure Can trample an empire down."
