Lew Rockwell on Government Interventionism -- Both at Home and Abroad
Ideology is such a powerful force that it has propped up policy inconsistency for more than a century. The left has a massive agenda for the state at home, and yet complains bitterly, with shock and dismay, that the same tools are used to start wars and build imperial structures abroad. The right claims to want to restrain government at home (at least in some ways) while whooping it up for war and global reconstruction abroad.
It doesn't take a game-theory genius to predict how this conflict works itself out in the long run. The left and the right agree to disagree on intellectual grounds but otherwise engage in a dangerous quid pro quo. They turn a blind eye to the government they don't like so long as they get the government they do like.

Former Head of the CIA's bin Laden Unit Agrees With Ron Paul -- Not With Giuliani!
I thought Mr. Paul captured it the other night exactly correctly. This war is dangerous to America because it’s based, not on gender equality, as Mr. Giuliani suggested, or any other kind of freedom, but simply because of what we do in the Islamic World – because ‘we’re over there,’ basically, as Mr. Paul said in the debate.
Antiwar.com has the scoop.

Is Ron Paul Crazy?
The Real Giuliani
Friday, May 18, 2007
Ron Paul is no TV debater. But up on that stage in Columbia, he was speaking intolerable truths. Understandably, Republicans do not want him back, telling the country how the party blundered into this misbegotten war.
By all means, throw out of the debate the only man who was right from the beginning on Iraq.
Click above for the whole thing.
Shame on your for trying to silence the lone voice of reason in the Republican Party, Dr. Ron Paul. Apparently, you have not learned anything from the heavy losses the GOP faced in 2006. One can only hope that whatever swine you put forth in 2008 will share the same fate.
Please click on the link above for information on how you, too, can bombard this man's office with e-mails and phone calls.

Dr. Ron Paul at the Second Debate
Ron Paul has put himself up for personal ridicule at the hands of his inferiors just to show all of us that there is an alternative to the direction we are headed. Which of us would have the courage to do the same? He won? Irrelevant. His every word to the national audience is worth a million blows of the hammer on the stone of authoritarianism. God bless him.
