American elections

Since Hilary Clinton supported the invasion of Iraq and says impeachment of Bush is off the table (if there is no accountability for lying rulers how can history be prevented from repeating itself?) surely she is not a good choice for president? Obama seems like a decent guy and I would love for him to be the savior so many people think he is, but after watching this video I cant help thinking, does the world really need another president who wants to continue sowing fear into people and fighting new wars? The world can do without this continuing military industrial complex.

Ron Paul understands what has been going on with the federal reserve, US Economics and shady foreign policies based on confrontation or aid with heavy conditions attached and seems to be the only candidate willing to completely change the course towards which America is headed. That is towards becoming a fascist regime with a shrinking middle class and everyone sinking deeper into debt and instead steering it towards a return to the principles upon which the founding fathers of America once build a great country. But then again, he supports the right to bear arms, and I think Europe is better off without everyone carrying weapons than America is with so many guns, so really, who knows? I guess in many ways I am still resigned to the fact, leave the world to the world.

One thing is for sure though, whoever does win the elections, they have the unenviable job of inheriting some serious problems, as they are reaching or passing some major tipping points.

Knowledge is power. peace.

    I am a 2 tour Vietnam Veteran who recently retired after 36 years of working in the Defense Industrial Complex on many of the weapons systems being used by our forces as we speak.

    Politicians make no difference.

    We have bought into the Military Industrial Complex (MIC). If you would like to read how this happens please see:

    Through a combination of public apathy and threats by the MIC we have let the SYSTEM get too large. It is now a SYSTEMIC problem and the SYSTEM is out of control. Government and industry are merging and that is very dangerous.

    There is no conspiracy. The SYSTEM has gotten so big that those who make it up and run it day to day in industry and government simply are perpetuating their existance.

    The politicians rely on them for details and recommendations because they cannot possibly grasp the nuances of the environment and the BIG SYSTEM.

    So, the system has to go bust and then be re-scaled, fixed and re-designed to run efficiently and prudently, just like any other big machine that runs poorly or becomes obsolete or dangerous.

    This situation will right itself through trauma. I see a government ENRON on the horizon, with an associated house cleaning.

    The next president will come and go along with his appointees and politicos. The event to watch is the collapse of the MIC.
