HotAir.com has a poll out that basically says that the majority of Republicans consider themselves to be “hawks” when it comes to foreign policy. Which is why I do not consider myself a Republican or a hawk. When they say “hawk”, they really mean neoconservative; when it comes to foreign policy — or if you want a more proper term — a supporter of Wilsonian foreign policy. I am neither of these; I am not for fighting armchair general wars, I am not for fighting wars that really have no real stated goal or clear mission.
The truth is that ISIS was direct result of the United States invasion of the sovereign Nation of Iraq, based upon some very flawed intelligence and based upon the fact that George W. Bush did not bother to verify this intelligence. so, in essence, the United States of America created ISIS or ISIL —- just like we created Al-Qaeda.
Anytime the United States of America and its Government get involved in world affairs, social and economic issues, that is statism and every time it has happened, with the exception of World War II; it has been an utter disaster and has failed miserably. You would think that the United States of America would have learnt the lessons from World War I, Korea and Vietnam. However, sadly the United States just keeps repeating the same stupid mistakes over and over. Also too, What precisely did we gain out of getting involved with the Koreans? Containment of a communist country with a succession of psycho leaders, who have an affinity for exploding nuclear bombs underground and firing rockets over the Japan sea; and southern Korean people who import good into our Country, all the while destroying our GDP. This my friends, is what happens when progressives run Government.
None of this is really new, The Republican Party has always been a statist political party, even more so that the Democratic Party. This was proven when the radical Republicans goaded Abraham Lincoln into establishing a central bank; which ultimately failed. These radical Republicans went as far as to goad President Lincoln to fighting a civil war, who quash dissent among the southern states, all the while using slavery as the rallying cry.
Finally, the progressives found their man, in President Woodrow Wilson, Who signed the federal reserve act of 1913; which allowed for a central bank that answers to no one, but itself. This is done at the cost of our nation’s economy;something progressives have wanted to destroy for many years, in favor of a cuban style of a socialist utopia. They might have actually succeeded, if it had not been for the rise of the Tea Party and conservative activists and bloggers who sprung into action and cut these cutthroat thugs off at the pass.
Much hay has been made about the rise of the libertarian wing of the Republican Party; and the reemergence of the “old right” or as we are properly known as, Paleoconservatives; which is what the Republican Party truly was, before the Jacobin neoconservatives decided that they would overrun the Republican Party by nefarious means. Some think that these type of conservatives can regain control of the Republican Party, I doubt this very much, the neoconservative right is too well-funded and well defended with their Frankfurt school tactics.
To be clear the Democratic Party, in its current state, is a horrible mess. The Anti-American, Anti-Capitalist — and dare I say — Anti-White mentality of that party has run former “blue dog” Democrats like myself out of that party. However, the Republican Party is really no better at all. Nothing has really change since the end of the George W. Bush-era; the Jacobin neoconservatives are still there and they are their money is controlling the shots in that party.
As much as I would like to say that I would like to believe that there is something that we can do to change this I just cannot. The powers that be, are very entrenched. As a Born-Again Christian of 34 year vintage and as an Independent Fundamental Baptist; I can tell you what my hope truly is and what I believe and trust in. It comes from the Bible:
But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope. For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him. For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep. For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. Wherefore comfort one another with these words. (1 Thessalonians 4:13-18 KJV)
This is my hope; yes, I know this world’s system is corrupt. Yes, I know things are going to get much, much, worse. But, I also know that when that time comes, which no man knows the hour; but we can know the seasons. Jesus is going to come back for his Church and all of this world is going to burn up and the wicked will be consumed. I, however, will be watching from the portals of the Glory of Heaven; all the while giving thanks that I made that very wise decision on June 7, 1982 in the auditorium of the original Open Door Baptist Church in southwest Detroit Michigan.
Even so, Come, Lord Jesus.
