“Lots going on in the world, this one is in our hemisphere and a power vacuum is developing.”

Yep. It would be interesting to hear any of our current crop of elected politicians, on either side of the aisle, articulate what the goals of American foreign policy are, and how we plan to achieve those goals.

For that matter, it would be interesting to hear them articulate what their goals for America are.

Remember the lovely girl killed in the freedom protests in Iran? Obama wasn’t moved to do anything to help them, and the protest died, leaving the imams in power over the people. Obama is not going to do anything to promote freedom abroad while he tries to crush freedom in our own country. That is where we have been the past five years. Who will change that?

LOL! Not to worry, the state dept., the NGO's, the alphabet agencies, the FED and other UNaccountable bureaucrats will present the Articles of Articulation to let us know where we are going soon.

FORWARD!

I'm not sure why you'd say that. Cops kill pretty much anyone they want with impunity now ga teen killed and coed killed by police and police cadet killed by instructor etc. to list just a tiny sample.

If you or a family member is killed by a cop there is essentially a zero chance that the cop will be brought to justice for it. So again I ask how do you think it's different here?

When heads start exploding at TEA Party rallies... then we will have become Venezuela. I am not discounting what you say but there is a difference as of today.

I suspect that this is only because they fear a serious armed response. Do you think there will be a difference if 0 and his accomplices continue to dismantle the 2nd amendment?

W would have called for a meeting of the Organization of American States. The rest of the countries would have to take action with American logistic support. Capture some Cubans and ofer them asylum.

We already know what their goals for America are. A communist workers utopian paradise.

They would have to kill 50% of the American population and replace us with
unskilled servitude. Immigration reform anybody? Then a War with China and a
forced draft for able bodied Americans would finish us off. The firing of our
Generals is the beginning of any revolt inside the ranks.

China would go along to also reduce their population.
A stalemate like WW1 with thousands per day dying in the trenches.

Reminiscent of. . .

Neda Agha-Soltan (1983 – 2009) drew international attention after she was shot dead during the 2009 Iranian election protests. Her death was captured on video by bystanders and broadcast over the Internet and the video became a rallying point for the opposition.

The police and armed chavistas thugs are killing unarmed Venezuelan students while the World keeps a shameful silence.

— Thomas Jefferson “The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government.”

— Thomas Jefferson “No free man shall ever be debarred the use of arms.”

CUBA, Venezuela.. A disarmed people are an easy prey for tyrants... AMERICANS DON’T ALLOW ANY APPRENTICE OF TYRANT DISARM YOU!!!
