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.
