There has been, is now, and always will be a dominant world military power.
What nation or group, SpringtoLiberty, would you like to see fill the void an become that dominant military power if Ron Paul got his way and gutted the US military, closed all foreign bases and retreated to hide behind our borders?
I agree. There will always be a big boy on the world stage. I want that to be the usa as long as I and my progeny are alive. But what we have now is a military strung out. Standing on the brink of collapse and rout. It is the missuse of our military that so many americans object to.
Look at the recent numbers put up on this board today that show the men actually fighting are donating to dr. Paul’s cmpaign. More active duty personnel are donating to dr. Paul than to obama and the other republicans combined.
Our military was organised and designed to protect its citizens. Not those of other countries. It was designed to protect our borders not the dmz. Our livelihoods not the house of saud.
Also, our warfighting is done by citizens with the consent of those citizens. The office of the president is not the congress.
-—What nation or group,-—
Obviously you are happy with the latest US intervention last “Spring” that has brought the Muslim Brotherhood to power across the Middle East and Africa. Let’s keep the intervention coming because these chickens will never come home to roost. Only a Paultard kook could think that.
