When did the Republican party become the party of war or war rhetoric? More importantly, why are Christians today so wrapped up in this lust for war? Have they forgot the Commandments of “Love thy neighbor as thyself?” or “Thou shalt not kill?” Are they so mesmerized by the Sean Hannity and Rush Limbaugh’s of the world, as well as all else on Fox News who repeat the mantra of being aggressive towards our neighbors that they forget who Republicans really stand for? Wasn’t it just four years ago the Republicans chose a war loving candidate in John McCain instead of listening to the only peace loving candidate? I can tell you flat out, this is not your father or mother’s Republican party, and it isn’t mine.
Republicans Used To Give Us Out of Wars
Wasn’t it the Republicans who got us out of the wars in Korea and Vietnam? These were the wars the Democrats got us into. Now that Obama and the Democrats have been in charge we might have wound down in Iraq, but we have escalated the war in Afghanistan and are now involved in Syria, Libya, dropping bombs on Pakistan via drones and threatening to bomb Iran. Whatever happened to the Constitution where it states that all these wars, including the ones we fought in Korea and Vietnam have to be declared? Who needs Congress then if we leave these decisions to a Presidential declaration? Why have a Constitution at all when you are so convinced by the media that our government leaders know what they’re doing? How did that work out for the weapons of mass destruction in Iraq?
Republican Voters Choose Romney Who Wants To Attack Iran and Now Talking About A Soviet Threat
So this is what the Republican Party platform has come to dear voters. Choose Candidate Romney because he will save you from all these threats from them, whomever “them” is. So lets take a look at who really is a threat and who isn’t in the land of the free.
Take a look at the graphic below and please explain to me how the U.S. is in fear of anyone. Tell me how Israel is in fear when Netanyahu has said himself that they don’t need the help of the U.S. as “Israel can defend herself.”
How would anyone neutral view the above actions over the last 6 plus decades? Is this the reason the dollar stays as strong as it has? Or is it the fact that when Nixon took us off the gold standards in 1971, after we basically told everyone we would no longer honor their gold requests, that they U.S. government figured they were the only game in town? This is why the U.S. government has gone into perpetual debt, living off of future generations. We are over $16 trillion in debt and you still want more debt to support your lust for wars. Good luck with that Republicans and Democrats!
