    If we had never gone to Afghanistan it would have been better..

    It was based entirely on lies.

    a Variation of Operation Northwoods.
    Liberty is lost through complacency and a subservient mindset. When we accept or even welcome automobile checkpoints, random searches, mandatory identification cards, and paramilitary police in our streets, we have lost a vital part of our American heritage. America was born of protest, revolution, and mistrust of government. Subservient societies neither maintain nor deserve freedom for long.

    To be frank and honest; Regarding the other topic of what this site should be or become, seeing Ron again today (having what happened in Afghanistan in mind) in his 'What If' speech, After having seen this video many many times, this is what this site should be. I hope this helps.

    I've been voting for losers since I started voting 30 years ago. You know why every candidate I vote for loses, right?

    Because none of the history of the last 30 years - or even that of many other decades before it - would have ever happened in this country
    if the right people were elected. Yet, they are somehow never elected to positions of real power. Representative democracy is a fool's errand. Did it work for a while 200 years ago? Perhaps, if you need to believe that. Does it work anymore? If you call this "working", it is brilliantly conceived.

    This was the main reason for my support. After that, I listened to every speech looking for a flaw, but each one convinced me further of his integrity.

    The question isn't whether or not it works. It most certainly does work, as effectively now as 200 and 2,000 years ago.

    The question is rather, for whom does it work. It works for an oligarchy. And this was as true 200 and 2,000 years ago as it is today.

    Notice some of the quotes of Alexander Fraser Tytler here. He wrote critically about the kind of democratic republican ideals that were shaping the US in his own day, and hearkened back to the weaknesses demonstrated by experiments with such systems in antiquity, and his observations read like they could have been written about our own generation.

    There is nothing to fear from globalism, free trade and a single worldwide currency, but a globalism where free trade is competitively subsidized by each nation, a continuous trade war is dictated by the WTO, and the single currency is pure fiat, fear is justified. That type of globalism is destined to collapse into economic despair, inflationism and protectionism and managed by resurgent militant nationalism.

    I concur with the judgements of Tytler, and will suggest another book about why democracy is insidious:
