Rand Paul’s Epic Takedown of John Kerry

Posted by Troy on 3rd September 2013 in Current Events, Political

Thank you, Rand Paul.  You seem to be the only person in the government that actually cares about the Constitution.  Here’s a question for all of you peeps that say that the President can send our forces where ever, whenever.  If Canada fired some missiles into New York City, do you think we would buy it if they said, “Oh!  We didn’t declare war on you.  Our Prime Minister can just has the ability to do whatever he wants.”  Or do you think we would have the same caviler attitude if Obama was talking about shooting off some missiles into China for their numerous human rights abuse?  We are supposed to be outraged by the use of chemical weapons, but what is the difference between that and the human rights abuses of China?  The starving of citizens in North Korea?  All of the warlords and massacres throughout Africa and the Middle East?  Why do we seem to be so willing to get involved in this particular conflict and not any of the others?  1,400 people have died from chemical warfare.  Where was Obama’s outrage while 100,000 were slaughtered while he was busy pushing gun control and all his other pet projects?  The answer is that the only reason he cares about this is that he had to open his mouth and lay down this “red line.”  Now HIS reputation is on the line.  He doesn’t care about America’s reputation.  In truth, we should not view our reputation as in line with Obama’s reputation.  Just because you screw up and elect an imbecile for President does not mean you have to back every moronic stance he has.  Why are we determined to have innocent Americans and Syrians killed at our hands to save Obama’s reputation?  The Constitution gives Congress the power to declare war.  Presidents as far back as Kennedy have made the case that, as leader of the military, they can do whatever they want.  The fact of the matter is that an act of war is defacto declaring war.  Don’t believe me?  Have Obama throw a tomahawk down in China and try to explain the subtle differences to the Chinese.  It is clear from anyone that’s read the Federalist Papers, as Rand Paul obviously has, that Congress is supposed to declare war first before our forces are moved into foreign countries.  There is no upside at this point.  We can look like we chickened out or we can risk material and lives in war.  Obama can say that this is some sort of limited engagement, but will he still say the same thing if Russia sinks one of our war ships?  This situation is perilous and could drag us deeper into a bigger war.  And for what?  To help install Al Qaeda related forces to power?  Is that our big win then?  The other option is that the engagement is going to be so limited that it won’t accomplish anything at all.  If so, why do it?  If you’re not willing to actually fight a war, don’t fight it.  If you’re not willing to put boots on the ground and actually win the war, don’t fight it.  It’s that simple.

Long Live the Constitution!

Obama Lets Loose the Strategic Reserve

Posted by Troy on 15th March 2012 in Current Events

Apparently, no one explained to Obama that the “Strategic” in “Strategic Reserve” does not refer to his re-election strategy but to national security strategy.  The reserve was established so that America would have ready access to oil in the case that other world powers managed to cut us off from the oil of the Middle East and other outlets.  However, Obama doesn’t care about that.  All he cares about is that the price of gas is set to climb well over $5.00 a gallon due to his policies in restricting oil development here and his monetary policy of printing worthless paper as money.  We have tripled the money supply since he’s been in office.  Of course the price of gas and food are going to go up.  He is going to be disappointed to find out that releasing the reserve isn’t going to keep the price of gas low until the election.  Bear in mind that he has already released the reserves once.

Nothing Obama has done in his Presidency (other than the blatantly unconstitutional laws and maneuvers) has pissed me off worse than releasing the strategic reserves.  Doing so means that he views his Presidency as a matter of utmost importance.  Bear in mind, this is the man that claimed that the seas themselves would recede at his arrival as President.  He has no care about our military security.  This is the same man that called Seal Team 6 Cheney’s assassins and then turned around and claimed that Obama, himself, had put them together to hunt and kill bin Laden.  Everything is a focus group to this guy.  Like all dictators, he feels the need to have his way constantly and be adored at the same time.

If America is to survive, Obama must be defeated in 2012.  It is that simple.

Long Live the Constitution!
