The beating drums of war

The drums of war are beating to a fever pitch and all hell is about to break loose. I have been reporting my findings for months now, and it seems the time is about to come. Unless enough people wake up and say “no! ” War is a racket, but it seems that we are intent on throwing more young men onto the bayonets of others, so that a select few can benefit.

Why would we allow our current leaders to throw us into such a deadly fight? From the left you have Hillary Clinton who admits that the US created Al-Qaeda, and from the right you have Mitt Romney who talks of letting off dirty bombs in Chicago.

We have a large naval exercise going on in the gulf right now while our president meets with the Israeli prime minister, while his army performs a snap military exercise in the Golan heights.

And we now have a senior Chinese general ordering its military to prepare for war with Japan.

This all the while our economy and currency is collapsing.

Our economy is losing more and more freedom, while we have more and more military buildup at home. The department of homeland security continues to order more and more rounds of ammunition.

If Israel attacks Iran, it will retaliate and shut down the Straight of Hormuz, which would make the price of oil skyrocket, and make gasoline in the US go up to around $10 a gallon on average. Our stock market will crash, and there will be civil unrest at home.

A worse case scenario (barring all out nuclear war) would be if the Chinese attack the Japanese, and decide to take out all our military bases in and around Asia, since we would need to back up the Japanese militarily.

If Iran is provoked into war, there is a high probability of them being able to take out all of our bases in the middle east. Especially with their Russian missile batteries.

Russia could attack multiple European bases if it felt threatened, and by this point, we would have no more show of force in the world. Almost all of our overseas bases would be wiped out, and since our military is so stretched out across the globe, it would take years for us to recover.

All this would come after a complete economic collapse which would include all the major countries dumping the US dollar.

Between the currency collapse and the decimation of our military, this country would be left dead in the water.

The scary part is, that there are rumors today of a dollar dumping, and the military exercises currently going on could well be a prelude to all out attacks.

All this coupled with cyber attacks and mis-information from the media can lead up to only one thing; the beating drums of war will get what they want, and all out carnage will ensue.

I pray that we do not allow this to happen. Tell your friends, tell your neighbors, do your own research. Lets see if we can’t use the power of the internet to stop this madness in its tracks!

The Drum
“Mr. Scott”
[John Scott][1]
The Cambridge Intelligencer (August 3, 1793)[2]

I hate that drum’s discordant sound,
Parading round, and round, and round:
To thoughtless youth it pleasure yields,
And lures from cities and from fields,
To sell their liberty for charms
Of tawdry lace and glitt’ring arms;
And when Ambition’s voice commands,
To fight and fall in foreign lands.

I hate that drum’s discordant sound,
Parading round, and round, and round:
To me it talks of ravaged plains,
And burning towns and ruin’d swains,
And mangled limbs, and dying groans,
And widow’s tears, and orphans moans,
And all that Misery’s hand bestows,
To fill a catalogue of woes.

Libertarians light the way

There were two things to be taken away from the Republican National Convention in Tampa this week.

One is that the Republican leadership is completely corrupt and does not support the base whatsoever.

The second is that we now live in a police state.

My generation has grown up during the Bush and Obama administrations, and cannot tell the difference between them. We cannot tell the difference between Obama and Romney, and we see through the political spin and pandering. They are all part of the same corrupt bipartisan establishment.

The way we see it; our parents and grandparents generations have lost their way, they believe the lesser of two evils is the way to go.

It has become apparent that only we can forge the future, and that if we don’t, the country will only fall ever deeper into a collective police state abyss.

We understand the free market system as much as the conservatives, and perhaps more so, because we know that our foreign policy is deeply flawed and that the more we trade with other nations instead of bomb them, and the more we cut taxes across the board, the bigger the economy will grow. Libertarians are not liberals, libertarians are capitalists, and believe in fiscal responsibility.

Lady liberty shines her light on the libertarian party. Only 12% of colonists fought the British during the war of independence. The liberty movement is growing, and with shameful acts of aggression from Romney’s people during the republican caucuses, we are now emboldened further in our cause to return liberty to this nation.

We must light the way, because all other policies and parties have failed. Darkness covers the land, and we must become the shining beacon in the night.

If the Tea Parties are successful in electing Romney to president, they will have become the very thing they swore to defeat only a couple of years ago.

In order to win, the libertarians must act like Jedi from Star Wars and use logic and non-violence to expose the shortcomings of both democratic and republican parties. With the DHS stocking up on over a billion rounds of hollow point ammunition, we simply cannot afford to start bloodshed.

People like ‘The Minister of Truth’ are the future of this nation. Here is a black man who is not only railing against Obama, but all the shenanigans of the republican party. ‘TMOT’ understands what true liberty is. I am honored to have found such a person out there in the world. TMOT shows that there is no greater weapon on earth than the human soul on fire.

We libertarians have many prominent voices out there. Ron Paul was our rallying call, and Gary Johnson is now our choice for president. There are many leaders and voices for liberty across the world wide web and in our communities. No matter what the republican establishment tries to tamp out dissent, it will only back fire on them.

We are the future of this country, we are the republicans if they will have us, and if not we’ll do it by ourselves. We have drawn a line in the sand, as the founding fathers did, and we have the constitution and another 200 years of economics and studies of governments and liberties behind us to embolden our views. We will rebuild this country, whether we get started this election or not. Libertarians light the way.
