The Path To Democracy - NOT!
The path to democracy is pure BS. I challenge anyone, anywhere, anytime to show me any lawful or constitutional authority which authorizes our government using military force - covert or overt - to "create a path to democracy" and to "nationbuild." There simply is no such thing. I don't see how America can move forward in a lawful, productive manner WITHOUT addressing the fact our government has no lawful authority to "create a path to democracy" as John Edwards likes to say, or to "nationbuild." - all in the name of spreading freedom and democracy, and "fightin' the War On Terror."
Even the most lefty liberal Democrat and the warfunding Democratic Senators have these things in common: they both believe the best way to fight terrorism is to "spread freedom and democracy." Code Pink's Medea Benjamin went to Pakistan: protest signs, pink garb and shouts for "democracy" filled the Pakistani air. President Musharraf had them arrested and summarily deported back to America without ceremony, delay, incident or fanfare. Even the most liberal Congressman or woman can be brought to their knees with a quick snap of, "Do you want to win the "War On Terror?'" and, "Do you want to give the Middle East to al Qaeda?" and, the good ole time Gospel Hour favorite: "Do you want to fight them over there, or fight them over here?"
Between the Christian ideology, Israeli neocon agenda, and Big Oil Dreams and Goals, Americans are caught in a deadly and costly crossfire. None of these things belong in our government, period.
Westerners just don't get it: Not only do westerners lack the authority to impose their western choice of guvmint, westerners also possess the unique inability to comprehend the Islamic mindset and Islam itself. Worse, westerners intentionally disregard and disrespect an Islamic nation's right to select and maintain the form of government of their choice. In other words, westerners have no legal or moral right to dictate the form of guvmint Islamists prefer. 9 out of 10 Islamists prefer Sharia law, and guess what America? IT'S THEIR BUSINESS! NOT OURS!
BushCo., the Israelis inside our government and outside our government, Democratic and Republican Presidential candidates and Congresspersons all speak, vote and act as if we don't maintain our vaunted military presence and "intelligence assets" worldwide, Americans will end up facing East, ass high five times a day. Nonsense! Islamists are NOT conquerors - they are defenders of Islam! This is a very important fact westerners either don't know, or don't give a damn about. As bin Laden said: "It is normal for us to react to the forces that invade our Muslim land and steal our natural resources."
Q. What lesson(s) did America learn about 9/11? Answer: NONE. The lesson conspiracy-free Americans should have learned about 9/11 was "what goes around, comes around." Unfortunately, this didn't happen - the opposite was "learned." Most Americans still live in the fantasy world that our government did nothing to provoke the 9/11 attacks, and that on September 11th, 2001, the U.S. government was "Little Miss Red Riding Hood" innocently skipping down the way, when the big bad Muslim wolf bit her head off. Most Americans, especially Democratic and Republican leaders, still believe the best way to "fight terrorism" is to "spread freedom and democracy" and "improve the economies and conditions" of other nations. As long as our "leaders" believe this nonsense, America is whiskey-bent and hell-bound.
Until America and our precious guvmint leaders come to grip with this truth, we will get more of the same disaster capitalism we've witnessed thus far. Unfortunately, REAL CHANGE will NEVER COME on the wings of the Democratic or Republican parties, I don't care WHAT Dennis Kucinich or Ron Paul told you - their parties HATE THEIR GUTS and will NEVER implement a single piece of their legislation or agenda!
Support partyless candidates and an independent voter platform. STOP worshipping and supporting party candidates - you're voting against yourself! REAL CHANGE is going to take time, money and extraordinary individual and group effort to free ourselves from the Democratic and Republican stranglehold. VOTE CHANGE OR DIE!
