Abit,

I agree whole heartedly.  Our nation was conceived in the concept of strength through liberty.  The Military Industrial Complex in conjunction with the World's central banks are the inventors of war.  I hope that as our econmy continues to collapse, we will finally see that WAR is no longer an effective method of falsely stimulating an economy.  We have moved beyond that concept.  Strength through Liberty...the enemy doesn't really want to kill us...they want to be us.  I have seen the enemy...and the enemy is us.  We do however have a moral obligation to assist the sovereign government of Iraq, in leaving a stable, peaceful, and prosperous nation.  "Let us retreat from the business of war, and declare war on the business of greed."-JK13

does Haliburton count as part of the military industrial complex? They don't sell arms directly but they may have encouraged their use....

Eisenhower may have not been the best president ever but he did have a really good command of the big picture.

I would say Eisenhower was one of the last great presidents.
 He was his own man, he had a significant history prior to becoming president. Compare this retired Four Star General to Bill Clinton's WIFE, the platitude speaking KID and Insane McCain?

abitarecatania, I'm surprised you have never posted any Zeitgeist videos (maybe I've missed them). This movie/videos are really scary I think, don't know how much of it is crap but it certainly makes you take a hard look at the things you believe in. Here's part I of the federal reserve:

We've been battling the "money changers" for 2000 years.  I give this video 4 Red Stars, out of a total of 4, for historical accuracy, and educational effectiveness.  Thank you qualitypicks for posting this very important work of FACT!

I am not sure how a 46 year old Obama became a "kid". And I would prefer to elect the McCain or Hillary of 20 years ago then the versions we get today. Back then they seemed to have a strength and conviction far in excess of the courage they show today.

JMHO.

McCain's VP choice will be more important than either Obama or Clinton.

ALCON,

Thanks for the replies. 

Tasty,

Concur with the TV being the issue. One of the ladies I work with, said Dr Ron Paul needed to gain 20lbs. She really thought it was an issue for him to get elected. It probably is to many people.....

QualityPicks ,

Great video. I am not well read on the Zeitgeist. But Ron Paul has submitted legislation to eliminate the Federal reserve.

I did post this video back in Jan 08: David Rockefeller On Ron Paul.

 

devoish,

McCain 20 years ago was barely electible due to the Keating Five scandal which he was apart.

20 years ago Hillary was busy pretending to be Bill's wife of course we know that duty was filled by Jennifer Flowers and Monica Lewinski etc.... Almost every job Hillary has had was a gift due to her husband’s office.   

I like Sen Obama, he is smart and a good speaker. But I prefer someone 20-30 years older with more wisdom and experience. 

joeykid,

I cannot imagine someone competent and qualified wanting to be McCain's VP.  McCain is to dumb, hot headed and is on the wrong side of the major issues (the war with out end).

Abit,

 I believe that McCains VP choice will be our next President.  That is what I was trying to say...I don't think Mac is long for the world, so he better choose his VP carefully.  Lets face it, neither his bombshell of a wife, nor his Mr. Heatmiser personality, can't be good for his old ticker.  If he dropped dead today, I wonder who would be the Republican nominee?  Does it go to his VP choice, Romney or Huckabee?  That 1/2 term Senator has absolutely no right to consider himself worthy of the presidency.  Obviously the American Electorate has very low standards indeed!

Joey,

You are making a decent call on McCain's VP. I think Romney or similar will fill the void. 

Most of America do not vote, because their are no real choices.
