Mr. President, on the day of Palms you speak of the Drums of War but a voice of reason Speaks of the Reason. It is very simple what has brought this despair, this kneeling in peril at the altar of the precipice of destiny. Fate indeed not but by the neglect of the Social Contract with the citizens both at home and abroad!

" Carter said the United States is "the most warlike nation in the history of the world" due to a desire to impose American values on other countries, and he suggested that China is investing its resources into projects such as high-speed railroads instead of defense spending.

"How many miles of high-speed railroad do we have in this country?"

Zero, the congregation answered.

"We have wasted, I think, $3 trillion," Carter said, referring to American military spending. "China has not wasted a single penny on war, and that's why they're ahead of us. In almost every way.

"And I think the difference is if you take $3 trillion and put it in American infrastructure, you'd probably have $2 trillion left over. We'd have high-speed railroad. We'd have bridges that aren't collapsing. We'd have roads that are maintained properly. Our education system would be as good as that of, say, South Korea or Hong Kong.

"I wasn't comparing my country adversely to China," Carter qualified. "I was just pointing that out because I happened to get a phone call last night."

The former president said he understands that Trump is worried about China surpassing the U.S. as the world's top economic superpower.

"I don't really fear that time, but it bothers President Trump, and I don't know why. I'm not criticizing him this morning," Carter said to laughs from the audience.

The White House confirmed the conversation in a statement.

The only way to repair the nation in despair is to find out who is the decision maker behind the scene. It is not the President, it is not the Congress, Senate, it is not AIPAC or whatever. It is a group of people who secretly rule America with the help of these above. These people profit from wars and nothing will stop them until we found who they are. They do not want happy independent Americans because then they cannot control them. We need Mr. Mueller to do a real job. Below is the famous cartoon portraying Rockefeller controlling the government originally published in The Verdict on January 22, 1900.

Carter is an honest, intelligent, caring, and principled man. Trump is the exact opposite.

Carter was one of the greatest presidents who worked hard to build America. But do you remember the only one shortage of oil in the US? It was during Carter's mandate. The media blamed him for everything and he was proclaimed as one of the worst presidents ever. As a result, he was not reelected.

Totally on point, George. Bravo. Carter is pointing at the elephant in the room: MIC is the number one problem. Bernie shrieking about taxing the "billionaires" is more stupid diversionary BS. Mic will claw back every last dollar any such tax will produce. MIC has had its eyes on the billionaire class whose not invested in MIC just as the royals eventually stripped the lesser peerage to finance thier armadas during the Inquisition. Bernie is a threat to Gabbard and will never make her VP. He's a MIC man, let's not be fooled again.

Love it that William Buckley's ghost is dead center in the caption.

Interestingly I ran across an article by Michael Lind recently that has reawakened my in the trenches years in regards to William Buckley and the shifting of the Democrats from FDR's New Deal under pinning's of a social contract with the citizen's Treasure, Commons and Unalienable Rights.

Excerpt; "What is missed completely by the makers of "The Best of Enemies" in their focus on snarky one-upmanship is that the strange-bedfellows alliance between Buckley's movement conservatives and the Democratic Party establishment symbolized by Humphrey and Daley in 1968 foreshadowed the Reagan revolution. Today's conventional conservative narrative, in which the election of Ronald Reagan in 1980 marks the triumph of the "movement conservatism" of Bill Buckley and Barry Goldwater over FDR-LBJ liberalism, gets the history wrong. So does the conventional liberal narrative, in which there is a direct line between today's Democrats and the Democratic party of Franklin Roosevelt and Lyndon Johnson". Here

Dank ja well for publishing these needed words people do not want to hear for think they can not do anything it. Hear all the time nobody wants to be bothered by what they can do nothing about.

Kind of sad when words of the sixties to 70's rock and roll prophets have fallen on deaf comfortably pretty good people trying to get by.

Michael, the truth sometimes is burdensome indeed but should we abandon the light to the darkness of oppression for "every man will be glad of those conscience-soothing tactics, and will diligently study them, and refuse to examine any refutations of them; and thus he will by and by convince himself that the war is just, and will thank God for the better sleep he enjoys after this process of grotesque self-deception." -- Mark Twain
