America is Obsessed with War
The video below by Texas congressman Ron Paul is clear. He makes his case.
America is a nation obsessed with fear instilled by manipulative forces to herd them into shelling the dough out to the new Imperial America, and locking down on freedoms here that0 generations of American veterans fought to preserve.
Twice Paul avoids mentioning Israel but we know what he is not allowed to say for his personal safety or the safety of his family. What kind of leadership is it that trumpets a war on terror and then gives one small country a free pass to terrorize its own citizens?
They would be brutally murdered if he spoke what we all saw him allude to. Our obsession with Iran is illegal, it is a war crime, it constitutes an illegal declaration of war through sanctions, which are, as Paul states, an act of war.
If someone declared sanctions, actually blockaded the United States, we would nuke them in a minute. Now it is the US that is begging to be attacked and, frankly, is doing everything possible to prove to the world we deserve it.
Well, the people do not, but their illegal government, as pointed out by Paul, fails to represent the people but instead, has clearly demonstrated that is it nothing but a pack of slaves and puppets to Israel and Wall Street.
I am in favor of the immediate arrests and detention of any and all members of congress, by our military, members who have abandoned the rule of law, who show themselves to be traitorous and disloyal to America.
Thank goodness President Obama has signed a law that allows this, key provisions of the NDAA and, beyond that, existing provisions of the Patriot Acts.
We are even allowed to put members of our own government on death lists and kill them using drones, even while sitting at their seats in the Capitol Building in Washington?
You think I am making this up?
America has actually legalized the killing or indefinite detention of any American citizen, of any race, religion, be they generals in our military, members of congress, justices of the supreme court, small children, the aging in the last throes of death, their doors can be kicked down, their residences can be bombed, nuclear weapons can be used against them, in fact, all limitations of insanity in the United States have been removed.
Our secret military tribunals don’t protect even the president, foreign diplomats and our “star chambers” or “death squads” run by the JSOC (Joint Special Operations Command) carry full congressional authority to decide who to kill, when and how with no limitation, no accountability, no one safe, no one excluded.
This is the “new democracy,” a totalitarian police state that can kill anyone and anything anywhere. Has the world ever seen such equality? America is setting a new standard not seen since the rule of Nero, Caligula or Attila the Hun.
In place, no system of checks and balances protecting any right once guaranteed by our Constitution under the Bill of Rights remains in force.
Are you a general? Got nukes? Having a bad day?
Thank presidents Bush and Obama, you can incinerate congress, turn Washington to glass, sit over a Scotch with friends and make up a list of assassinations that includes the Queen of England, Putin or anyone else and simply murder them.
It is now totally legal and no authority exists, no court, no law, that can stop you.
Well over 200 years of work, establishing a nation of laws and freedoms has been discarded. Every international law imagined is violated by America every hour.
Hear that whirring noise? What is it? It’s the Founding Fathers, turning in their graves.
As for our government, it is time those who support Ron Paul and the rule of law sit on one side, and the pirates and war criminals sit on the other.
Then we look inside our existing authority for what we have lacked for so long, men and women of patriotism, of respect, of honor and courage.
I didn’t sign up to be a criminal when I was born in this country. Did you?
