If the fate of the nation were left to the neo-conservatives, we would be economically and socially doomed. The neo-cons will fight wars everywhere. They could care less about our current economic status, our national defense, or the lives of the ones who cannot protect themselves in the womb. They will assert that these are their concerns, but in the end, they crave for war. Some, like Pat Robertson, will pray that we assassinate Hugo Chavez, while winning the war on terror. This is the neo-conservative agenda of the Kristol’s and the modern day republican: spread democracy by terrorizing as many as possible. In fact the same Pat Robertson, the leader of the right wing, has just endorsed one of the most despicable politicians in American history in the last fifty years–and we have had many. Giuliani’s foreign policy can be easily summed-up as committing the US to future wars in the Middle East and north Africa.
…Giuliani is the best candidate to handle the War on Terror… Giuliani understands the need for a conservative judiciary, and that he is a “true fiscal conservative” who is tough on crime.
The infamous war on terror; that which no one can properly define without sounding like a militaristic imperialist. I am still curious as to why he is the best candidate to handle this war. ‘Tis true that he had the fortune of being the mayor when those 19 thugs invaded our privacy and destroyed our lives; but is that all it takes? Wouldn’t Robertson be more comfortable endorsing someone who actually felt the pain of war–like McCain?
In the end, pragmatism wins the day. For Robertson (Dobson is a fortunate exception this time) “conservative” means hating Muslims more than your neighbor and “true fiscal conservatism” means killing Muslims for the sake of democracy, regardless if it affects our own economy at home.
Our nation is doomed at the hands of pseudo-prophets who will abandon principle for the sake of expediency.
