Teeing it up: A Round at the LINKs

Once again it was a very busy week as law makers passed another trillion dollar spending bill without even reading it.  To borrow a line form NJ Governor Chris Christie, what the hell are we paying these clowns for.  On the 2012 election front, the candidate I support (Ron Paul) continues to be hammered by the establishment, establishment supporting pundits, conservative bloggers, neo-cons and anyone else who is willing to get in line for what they perceive as a weak foreign policy position.  I feel their perception is misguided and during the up coming week I will try to make the case as to why his foreign policy position actually promotes individual liberty and overall strengthens America.  There are many solid conservatives who I respect in conservative circles missing the boat on this one in my opinion.  They’re radar locked on the notion that it will be an outside force that is the greatest threat to our liberties.  I will attempt to show why this simply isn’t true and how we’ve all been deceived into buying this snake oil.  I will also try to show that the real threat to our personal liberties is directly related to the constant state war so many conservative seem eager to get behind.  In the end I might ending up offending some good friends to this site; but I believe it’s a topic that warrants an adult conversation.

The best article I read this past week came from our very own Right-Hand-Man.  In his post “Of the People” he reminds us of our responsibilities as informed citizens to hold our elected officials accountable for their actions and votes.  When an elected representative votes on a trillion dollar spending bill without even reading it, it doesn’t matter whether they have an “R” or a “D” in front their name, it’s time to go.  I mean we’re talking about a trillion dollars of taxpayer money; OUR money.  We deserve better than this.  And where is the tea party on all this?  Why have the been so quite? Their silence is absolutely shameful.  Once again the only group talking about these topics are the conservative bloggers below.  They are truly the tip of the spear in getting the word out.  If you want to know what’s really going on in the political world look no further than the links below.  These fine people day and day out are fighting for America and reporting what the MSM ignores.  So tee it up and enjoy another SENTRY JOURNAL round at the LINKs.

    Thanks for the linkage John. Have a blessed week.

    For the record, I think that both the threats inside and outside of the U.S. are equal. They both need to be addressed.

    If you want to help Ron Paul with the doubters, you should clear up where he stands on the CIA, spying on our enemies, and foreign military cooperation short of wars and invasions, like we’ve enjoyed with Canada, England and Australia.

    Where does he stand on our decade-long Philippines deployment, where we’ve provided military assistance to them so they can go after Abu Sayyef?

    We’re all anti-war, that’s an easy one, especially for those of us who have actually been in one or two. Would he end all military assistance and cooperation, or does he like some of it?

      Defaulting to big government solutions by our leading candidates should bring down as much scrutiny and ire from conservatives on Romney and Gingrich as does a non-interventionist position Paul takes. But oddly enough it doesn’t. In the upcoming week I’m going to attempt to make the case as to why I believe perpetual war is eroding our liberty and why we need to look at it from a different perspective. I do get it silver, we have certain commitments we must honor. My point is history shows us that endless wars lead to liberties being diminished because more power is granted to the state to fight these wars. The founders certainly knew this. This is why many favored a militia over a large standing army.

      If you want to know how close we were to losing some of our liberties, look no further than this past week. Our congress was actually on the verge of passing a defense spending bill which had such ambiguous language embedded in it, it led many to its implied conclusion; the indefinite detainment of American citizens who were suspected of supporting terrorist activity without due process. That should scare the hell out of any liberty loving American. But we justified the language because of war on terrorism and security. I’m all for a strong national defense, just not at the expense of individual liberty. I’m going to write a post on it this week so there will be plenty of material to debate my friend.

        That defense bill still has problems, and we’re all against “perpetual war.’ And commitments aside, I just want to know where he stands on military cooperation and does he believe in spying on other nations?

    Right-Hand-Man is so right about continuing to sign these pieces of legislation without reading them. Rand Paul said he wouldn’t consider voting for the Omnibus for that reason. Congress wanted to get out of town, and were fine with waiting to “find out what’s in it.” How long have they known they had to pass a Bill to keep the government from shutting down. Answer: since the last one they signed.

    Thanks so much for including me in your reading list John!

      You’re very welcome Maggie. It’s a very frustrating thing to know that 2010 is nothing more than a memory. We need to remind them in 2012 who they work for. I say send all home who voted on this bill without reading it. That includes one of my favorite Republicans…Paul Ryan.
