There is so much hypocrisy in the political realm right now that it's truly frightening. Who can we believe? Does anyone have any integrity? I think we're witnessing the final corruption of the US State. There are some new representatives who were elected during the mid-terms, and I want to believe they are not yet corrupted, but they are a relative few. Plus, the tenacles of the State are so powerful, a handful of men and women can't touch the fundamental problems. The media has become a unit of the State. The Fed is a unit of the State. It's just too much.
Now, In Washington DC, congress fails to rise up and stop Obama from pulling our military into a war in Libya. The political pundits on the Left that I've heard on talk shows are supporting going into Libya. We should already be out of Iraq and Afghanistan, yet we are considering going to war in Libya, making Libya the thrid country in the Mid East in which we are involved militarily? Grown ups in Washington DC have got to seize the reins and stop this madness. Obama appears to be operating on some kind of academic illusion of global/One World power and control which is going to cause real damage to real American soldiers, when America has no interest in Libya. If Bush had done this, the Left would be in the streets. It's hypocisy.
We need to get out of the Mid-East completely. We are slowly being drained and pulled into a no-win situation of chaos and destruction. The rebels fighting Qaddafi could be worse than Qaddifi --we just don't know. Britain loved Qaddafi's son -- let them take him to a night club and talk it out, but not one American soldier needs to die for Libya, and not one dollar needs to be spent.
In the coming week, I will be writing several posts addressing the political realm and how the idea of neo-liberalism is an obscurantist tactic to hammer the final nail into the coffin of classical liberalism/libertarianism -- all political labels are being obscured, but underneath the obscurity is a reality that has to survive.
