Its okay when I lie.

Me? hahah absolutely not! No. I’m talking about politicians. Especially the one in the White House.

Oh President Obama, you promised this country peace. You said Iraq was a dumb war and you always showed how you were against it. And, for a while, (stupidly) I believed you. You railed and railed and said that Afghanistan was the war that should have been fought, not Iraq. So, here we are. In 2011. HOPEFULLY we will be done with Iraq by year’s end and a phased withdrawal of Afghanistan should start. But, you lied.

Now the US is getting involved in a civil war against Mommar Ghaddafi. My question to you is, Mr. President, where is the authorization from Congress for such a war? The War Powers act limited you for 60 days and those 60 days are up. I expected you to get one. But what do you do instead, you continue. You fire those who are against your opinion.  You sicken me. When Bush wanted to invade Iraq, he went to Congress and received permission. You just ignore them. No, you’re worse. You claim to be a constitutional lawyer and seek Congress’ support in everything. Yet, you avoid them entirely to fight war in Libya. Make up your mind. Be with the Constitution or against it. But the Constitutionality of the war doesn’t anger me as much as his way of fighting it.

He’s waffling on this. This is a war the US could end in a week. All it would take is a massive air raid and precision guidance munitions from B-52s and other weapons. But no,what does he do? He lets the Europeans handle it all. They are extending this war because they don’t have the capacity to end it quickly.

In closing, I’ll say this. I give the president credit for his handling of Osama. But he’s a coward in Libya. He has American money being wasted, American hardware being destroyed, and civilians being killed because he doesn’t want to end it.

He’s a joke.



GOP candidates for 2012 part 1

Posted in Uncategorized on June 1, 2011 by Vasilieos

I figured I should do one of these. I’m only focusing on the GOP because the Democratic candidate will be Obama.

Mitt Romney – A Mormon hailing from the State of Utah. Ex-governor and former Presidential Candidate. His positions (which you can easily find) make me cringe. Not so much the atheist part of me, he was quoted as saying that he would not mesh religion and politics. I’m heavily trouble by this man as a Libertarian though. First of all, there is his stance on guns. He supported the Assault Weapons ban (None of the weapons that were barred are “assault weapons”, but I’ll go into that at a later date), the Brady Bill, and a State-level form of the Assault Weapons ban. That alone tells me he doesn’t care about the Second Amendment.

Romney claimed that “So I’m a hunter and believe in Second Amendment rights, but I also believe that assault weapons are not needed in the public population”. Who the hell are you to tell me what I “need” and don’t “need”? A lot of people don’t need three or four houses, or five or six cars, but there is no issue with that. I hate any politician who tells me what I need. I know what I need, they do not.

But then there are this man’s beliefs about LGBT issues. I’ll put it simply mein damen und herren, if you’re in the LGBT community he doesn’t care about you. Not one bit.

I could go on and on about why I utterly hate this man, but I wont. The mere thought of him being elected to the most powerful position on this planet makes me want to move to Sweden, or some other Scandinavian country.
