"The power of position does not exist to provide the office holder with profit, it exists to guarantee the freedom of the people." RJ Harris
Please read this story first.
Since it is most likely that we are aiding the Free Army in Syria against the Assad Regime, one has to wonder how much of our aid is going to the very forces which fought and killed our soldiers in Iraq and who are STILL fighting and killing our soldiers in Afghanistan. The Al-Qaeda fighters in this article must get a certain joy from obtaining US aid which is not supposed to, but which most probably does, end up in their hands. When are we going to learn that interventionism makes us weaker and not stronger? When are we going to learn that interventionism empowers our enemies in the long run even if it degrades them in the short run? But I guess we should just keep listening to the Chicken-hawks like Obama and Romney neither of whom have served a day in the military. As Congressman, I will vote against interventionism, which creates tomorrow’s enemies, and I will vote for strengthening the defenses of THIS NATION at home and in international waters just as was advocated for by our Founding Presidents.
