Hey, National Politicians - One More Time
1. Even the New York Times Editorial Board has stated (paraphrased): the ISIS-Syria-Iraq War that Obama is waging is unconstitutional. That's because it is...it's illegal under our system of government. It's not even properly authorized under the War Powers Act. You high-level DC politicians keep claiming you're all for the Rule of Law. Talk is cheap...prove it.
2. A retired combat veteran and Professor Emeritus of History at Boston University, Colonel Andrew Bacevich, has stated: "America's war for the greater Middle East cannot be won.". Using Iraq as an example, for a quarter century we've been hearing the following from three different Presidents: "We shall prevail.". Isn't it obvious by now--- this is nothing but Perpetual War for the benefit of a few, and we are not going to prevail. Who benefits? Follow the money. You politicians are serving your primary constituency--- the Super-Rich Oligarchs, the Mega Bankers, the War contractors (facetiously referred to as Defense contractors), and a few others who profit from constant war. This is so glaringly obvious that it's painful. Yes, we all know: "It's complicated."...nevertheless, it's still obvious. You are not serving We the People.
3. The U.S. economy is not "recovering"; neither is that of the world in general. We still are in a Recession, and it's worsening every day; furthermore, we're only a hair's breadth away from a full-blown Depression. Stop your lying, half-truths, and Propaganda. We know better than to believe any of it...that's because we live in the world, not in an Ivory Tower.
Not only my opinion. Be Well
