correction. I always forget Roscoe Bartlett from MD is a republican. I should have said, "even the Democrats" instead of, "the guy from Maryland."

The other issue is that many Americans distrust the U.N. and we have been subsidizing NATO for years. It's America returning to it's jingoistic isolationism. Our history shows this seems to be a cycle.

We stand up to be the Savior of the world, then get tired of the responsibility that comes with actually walking the walk not just talking the talk.

Don't get me wrong. I love our Country, but we do tend to elect self centered leaders. The other day I was watching C-Span's Senate Committee hearing on the presidents defense budget request for 2012 with the Defense Sec and the Joint Chief of Staff. IMO every Senator but one was actually focus on what's best for the nation. The lady from Alaska seemed more focused on giving a stump speech for the folks back home and getting re-elected next year. It was sad. I'm sure she is a great person, but she came across to me as the new kid on the block trying to prove she belonged.

EVERY BOMB DROPPED ON LIBYA IS ONE THAT SHOULD BE USED AGAINST SYRIA!

Everything that Obama said Libya was doing to their own people is being done by the regime in Syria to their people ten times over. Pluse Syria is a puppet of our REAL enemy, which is Iran.

A nuclear Iran is coming into being while our President waste resources attacking a country that has given up its nuclear program. Obama has no clue what he's doing in the middle-east.

This will end in tragedy unless we get someone in office with a lick of sense. Obama is making a huge mess.

The new republicans want to impose isolationism on all, radical rant anti war, anti union, trash all programs that are successful. They express hatred toward NATO and find all kinds of problems in Libya. The Obamacare, was a Heritage Group program applauded by republicans leading Mitt, to install it in his state. There unfunded wars are still going on and causing major problems with debt and spending. They know how to fix unemployement but never tell.

<quoted text>Much of this is just politics as usual. Even the guy from Maryland is doing this more for the symbolism than for actually protecting the country's interests. It's like storing u nuts for the winter. 2012 is going to be a major election and ever since the Republicans took the House, they haven't done much different from when President Obama was first elected. Just the same old song and dance. Bash Obama and the Dems in any way they can. Hopefully the American people will let them know that bitching and moaning and pointing fingers is NOT the same as actually doing work and fixing things.
Well we do have the House but still too many Dems around plus they still own the senate.. let's see a whole other batch of them get swept away in the next elections and see what happens.

You'd do well to read Washington's farewell address and his nearly prophetic warning to the American people about putting trust in political parties.

In my humble opinion of course.

Many of you love to talk about original intent when it comes to the Constitution, but seem to be blissfully ignorant about what it actually says in Article 3.

You are the people Washington warned of when he said,

"....In contemplating the causes which may disturb our Union, it occurs as matter of serious concern that any ground should have been furnished for characterizing parties by geographical discriminations, Northern and Southern, Atlantic and Western; whence designing men may endeavor to excite a belief that there is a real difference of local interests and views...."

and further on:

"....they serve to organize faction, to give it an artificial and extraordinary force; to put, in the place of the delegated will of the nation the will of a party, often a small but artful and enterprising minority of the community; and, according to the alternate triumphs of different parties, to make the public administration the mirror of the ill-concerted and incongruous projects of faction, rather than the organ of consistent and wholesome plans digested by common counsels and modified by mutual interests...."

And people look to Nostradamus? Seems to me old George was right on the money and very clear.

and you would benefit by knowing what it says in the Constitution about treaties and Congressional approval of said treaties.

By LAW we are required to support actions of NATO. Of course Congress is very good at passing stuff that is an end run around the Amendment process, Ask any Native American Tribe that had a Treaty with Congress granting all lands west of the Mississippi to the in perpetuity. Or ask legally married Same Sex couples if all Sates consider their marriage legal as spelled out in Article 4 Sec 1 & 2.

Oh I know you'll all say "States rights issue" when I bring up Same Sex Marriage. Yet why did we need DOMA then? And many court cases BEFORE Loving Vs VA upheld laws banning blacks and whites marrying. SCOTUS, by law doesn't HAVE to hear a case or give a reason for refusing. That happened frequently with Blacks. Plessy v. Ferguson (1896) even said separate IS equal.
