You know, there's always talk of ‘an October surprise’, and generally I ignore these things (because there's not much to do to prevent them from trying), but I truly believe that the long-term plans and ideological fervor of these people is so intense and entrenched that I put nothing past them. Their goal is a total transformation of American society, with redistribution of wealth and putting policies in place that are designed to homogenize us into a society that conforms to their convoluted concepts of ‘fair’.
They will do pretty much anything to defend and promote their ideology and agenda. They truly are dangerous.
Bill Clinton did much the same thing which caused Rumsfeld to remark after 9/11..."you go to war with the army you have". Donald Rumsfeld caught a lot of flack from the Dems and the press for the remark...however, he was Oh So Correct. It took time and money to rebuild our forces.
