Aiding & Abetting The Nutcase Neocons
By, Chris Rossini
As disastrous as Obama is, when you compare him to the Neocons, he's actually more restrained. That's not saying much...It's like comparing a D student to an F student so that's as far as the compliment goes.
Naturally, if Obama is not going to light up the entire Earth, the neocons will not be happy.
Their man, Mitt 'I'll attack everyone' Romney, lost....so they must wait. And now for the next four years, we're in for countless scribbles on how Obama is weak internationally, how he's gutting the military, how nuclear Israel (that is armed-to-the-teeth) can't defend itself...blah...blah...blah...
The neocons will cherish every vote come 2016...You can feel the determination in the GOP. They're putting out ridiculous reports on how being more welcoming will garner more votes, and how they need to create a database of African-American and Hispanic leaders.
But ridiculous or not, they're motivated.
If every vote counts, it means Rand Paul's votes as well. Anyone who reads Neocon Jennifer Rubin knows that she drops Rand's name just about every single day!
Former Ron Paul advisor, Doug Wead, writes (my emphasis):
"There is no way the GOP is going to get anywhere without Rand Paul. They can't win a general election without him either somewhere on the ticket or with him as an enthusiastic backer of the candidate."
RNC Chairman, Reince Priebus (my emphasis again):
I think it’s really important for us to recognize that the liberty movement is one of the major, growing areas of our party....We want to win. We don’t want to compromise our principles, but we want to win.
Picture the GOP as a group of gangsters plotting to hit a jewelry store:
The guy drawing up the maps is The Chairman. Armed with the pretense of knowledge, he puts together the plans.
He is joined by a bunch of impatient nutcases who are constantly pacing the room. They can care less about plans or consequences. They just want to start smashing windows and breaking things -- they're the Neocons.
Finally, there are the dopes running for coffee and watching out the window for cops. These are the Liberty Guys. They don't really support what the others are up to, but aspire to one day "take over" the whole operation. The Liberty Guys think that if they were in charge, they'd be able to steer the nutcases away from robbing jewelry stores. Yes, they're definitely dreamers, but they're useful dreamers; so the others keep 'em around. Plus, they also make perfect fall guys for when everything falls apart.
Neocons aren't playing nice for the hell of it....They want to win.
Here's Ron Paul, taking the gloves off in an article that pounds on Neocon Bill Kristol:
The neo-con ideology promotes endless war, but neo-cons fight their battles with the blood of others. From the comfortable, subsidized offices of magazines like the Weekly Standard, the neo-conservatives urge the United States to engage in endless war – to be fought by the victims of the “poverty draft” from states where there are few jobs. Ironically, these young people cannot find more productive work because the Federal Reserve’s endless money printing to keep the war machine turning has destroyed our economy.
Libertarians need to find better things to do than aid and abet the nutcases who are always itching to attack; and who will do whatever it takes to get the green light to do so.
