He never cut a cent from the defense budget. Trump also talks the good talk, played around with troop number but he has also tried to increased the defense budget to unprecended levels, increased troops in Syria, and on top of all of that tried to start new wars in Iran and Venezuela.

    Always pay attention to attacks and not on words. Syria is an easy theatre to show his antiwar chops, the country has been asking us to leave, ISIS has been wiped out by the Russians and Syrians and the US is just there to guard oil fields from the govt. We went with EO and he can leave with EO.

    We all know Hillary, Joe and Kamala, in their 100+ years of political careers, have made similar statements about the MIC and the profit motive of war. If only I could just find one instance of them saying such things, like Trump has done MULTIPLE TIMES over the past four years.

    Well, maybe not them, how about from ANY other politician that is currently serving in congress?

    Nope?

    Not even the radical leftists like Rashid Tlaib and Ilhan Omar will say something?

    How is it that Trump is the ONLY currently serving federal politician to say something about the M.I.C.?

    He's certainly tried with Iran & parts of S America- plus sanctions are an act of war- and it ain't over yet. He's also bombed more people than Obama. And, I'm no Obama fan- so don't go there.

    Trump also undid the Iran Deal which was one of the best things Obama did- Trump's position on Iran & the deal during his campaign let me know immediately that he was just another pretend-conservative.

    LOL

    If he tried it would have happened, he stopped those who tried.

    And don't even try to pretend O'Bummer was better, ask Libya about O'Bummer, ask Syria and Iraq about ISIS.

    Trump is ending wars not starting them.

    Trump’s Record on Foreign Policy: Lost Wars, New Conflicts, and Broken Promises

    by Medea Benjamin and Nicolas J. S. Davies Posted on July 02, 2020

    On June 13, President Donald Trump told the graduating class at West Point, "We are ending the era of endless wars." That is what Trump has promised since 2016, but the "endless" wars have not ended. Trump has dropped more bombs and missiles than George W. Bush or Barack Obama did in their first terms, and there are still roughly as many US bases and troops overseas as when he was elected.

    And, I never said Obama was better- he & Bush were both POS.

    You don't sign a record smashing defense budget not to drop any bombs on people. Trump SAYS he is against the generals who always push wars and conflicts that enrich the MIC but his actions equally does the same to enrich said entity.

    People, it is not just democrats and liberals that is the problem, we need to put Trump's feet to the fire to make sure he follows through

    I never claimed that you are a Fan of Obama. I never meet a ron paul supporter that likes Obama.
    I'm not Fan of sanctions I think its a mistake to put on sanctions on iran since we are buddies with Saudi arabia
    He destroyed the Iran Deal because Trump wants to destroy everything that Obama did.
    But Trump repeatedly said he wants a peace deal with Iran & he doesn't want a war with iran & Iran doesn't want a war with us too.
    Saudi Arabia & Israel are shilling for a war with Iran since the 80s.

    Agree! And my comment about Obama was because of the response I figured would come from the name-calling insult faction- not you.

    Well he is hardly bringing any troops home, it looks like a token step in the right direction. He needs to bring all the troops home.

    That being said, yes, he has been doing some great things it appears in the mid east, and hell, give the guy a Nobel Peace Prize for meeting with Kim Jong Un. That almost made me want to vote for him.


    But really though, action is needed, not talk. All the troops home now. It's just that simple.

    Other than Swordy, you're arguing with foreign shills (he's based somewhere Mountain Time, probably SLC). Do you notice how absolutely terrible their grasp on basic english is? It's like the latest shills being recruited are 16 year old Croatians who don't even have a Grammarly plug-in.

    The entire internet is the domain of paid shills and bots. If you don't know this by now....

    Israel, under control of the Crown and, ultimately, the Vatican, own the USA. If you don't know this by now....

    Talk to people about liberty. You won't find it on websites, you won't find it in politicians.

    But now you can't talk to people because of "social distancing"....brought to you by shills and politicians.

    Lots of buzz around troops removals in the last few weeks and Trump's latest positioning of an anti-war ambassador to Afghanistan...then Trump gets attacked from all sides of the MIC and deep state, hit pieces that Trump hates the military, everybody latches on, Dems, MSM, neocons all out in full force.

    If Trump was a MIC puppet like some of you (moronically) claim, they wouldn't have any reason to attack him. Obama lasted 8 years and wasn't attacked by the deep state. Trump took 4 straight years of it and it only gets worse after re-election if he continues to oppose their plans of more wars/invasions.

    TDS is real and its rearing its ugly head right here in this thread.

    Too bad Matt Collins the legend in his own mind, known by few isn't getting liberty people elected. You are either not known or laughed at in liberty circles. Too bad smug and arrogance can't get our people elected.
