Glenn Beck, GOP Trying to Hijack Libertarians Like Tea Party After 2008

Glenn Beck, GOP Trying to Hijack Libertarians Like Tea Party After 2008 | NEWS | Scoop.it
"We can continue to excuse the small (or large) discrepancies of politicians and people like Beck, or we can actually learn from the last election and stand up for our positions.
The Southern Gents's insight:

"We can continue to excuse the small (or large) discrepancies of politicians and people like Beck, or we can actually learn from the last election and stand up for our positions. There’s no more double binds to be made; no more “lesser of two evils” arguments to be had.

 

So, with that in mind, to the libertarians I say this: You have the chance to actually take the party. But in order to do that, you have to be willing to alienate some of the people who, in the past, were all too eager to alienate you; assault and arrest you; cheat you out of the election. They can’t win without you, you’ve already proven that. So why not stand up and take what is yours? You’ve tried it their way and it doesn’t work. And even when they do win, here or there, sporadically, the result is still big government encroaching on you just like the Dems across the aisle. Quit excusing the discrepancies and for once weed out that which doesn’t benefit your cause; your goals; your endgame.

 

Compromise isn’t bad if you get something fairly lucrative out of the deal. But what exactly will having only one or two “libertarian Republicans” in prominent roles get you? What pull or power would they really have? It’s time to play for all or nothing.

 

It’s your move."

WallisvstheWorld | REACTOR: “What Difference, At This Point, Does It Make?” | NEWS | Scoop.it
The Southern Gents's insight:

Clinton raised her voice. “With all due respect, the fact is we had four dead Americans,” she shouted at the lawmaker. Waving her arms and then pounding the witness table with her fist, she continued: “Was it because of a protest, or was it because of guys out for a walk one night who decided they’d go kill some Americans? What difference, at this point, does it make?”

The Southern Gents's insight:

Okay, so maybe I'm exaggerating with the title and with this being his 4557th lie. I mean, it could be, I simply just don't have those numbers to verify. However, what hasn't been exaggerated is Obama's ability to flip flop or 180 on virtually every premise and platform he ran on.

Congress Lacking Transparency? House Committee Rejects Ron Paul/Dennis Kucinich Drone Transparency Bill

Congress Lacking Transparency? House Committee Rejects Ron Paul/Dennis Kucinich Drone Transparency Bill | NEWS | Scoop.it
by Ezra Van Auken SLN reported last week that Rep. Ron Paul and Rep. Dennis Kucinich were pushing legislation in Congress that would require Attorney General Eric Holder to hand over every document...
The Southern Gents's insight:

Why would the Obama administration want transparency? It's not like they ran on that platform in 2008... oh wait! 

But what's the big deal, anyway? It's just drone warfare by a guy who earned a Nobel Peace Prize. Nothing to see, nothing to be upset about. At least that's how the anti-war left is acting. Despite opposing Bush's foreign policy for 8 years, the majority seems to openly accept Obama's continuance and amplifying of it.

WallisvstheWorld | REACTOR: Obama Grilled About Kill List by Ben Swann, Obama Lies

WallisvstheWorld | REACTOR: Obama Grilled About Kill List by Ben Swann, Obama Lies | NEWS | Scoop.it

Obama has been making an aggressive effort to speak to local reporters during the 2012 campaign, and Ben Swann, a reporter for Fox 19 in Cincinnati, used some of his minutes to press him about the list, which has the names of people who the administration has selected for targeted drone strikes. Press reports about the program have been the subject of heated political arguments on Capitol Hill. Swann was remarkably frank about the interview in a "Reality Check" segment. It was, in several ways, a tougher, more skeptical segment than viewers would find on many a national news program..."

WallisvstheWorld | REACTOR: Al Jazeera's 'Fault Lines' : Evangelism in the Military

The Southern Gents's insight:

Synopsis:
The United States is a deeply religious country, over 90% believe in god and 80% believe in miracles. For the US military, dealing with its own religious identity has become an internal battle. 

Growing evidence points towards a rising influence of evangelical Christianity, and with two wars still raging in Muslim countries with significant religious overtones, there could be serious consequences for the US mission. 

Pentagon officials say incidents are isolated, aberrations occur, but others closely tied to the military and its religious leadership say a transformation is taking place with dire costs. On this weeks episode of Fault Lines, we look at the battle over the religious soul of the US military.


Also, we sit down with Brent Scowcroft, the National Security Advisor under Presidents Ford and George H.W. Bush. He gives Fault Lines a fresh take on the issue of religion in the military and how it is impacting the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

WallisvstheWorld | REACTOR: Obama's Greatest Accomplishment: Ending the Iraq War?

The Southern Gents's insight:

Last night, in lieu of President Obama's 2nd term inauguration, MSNBC Host Rachel Maddow had a segment detailing Obama's biggest accomplishments of his first term as determined by a "comprehensive" national poll conducted by MSNBC.

But this really isn't true, is it? Technically the war ended under his watch, but this wasn't his doing. In fact, Iraq wanted us out and he had no choice but to abide by a timetable and agreement set forth by the Bush administration in 2008.

WallisvstheWorld | REACTOR: If the Gun Control Crowd is Honest in Their Position, Why Would They Stop at Assault Rifles? | NEWS | Scoop.it
The Southern Gents's insight:

If you're like me, you're smack dab in the middle of this gun debate. Because of this, you may have begun to recognize certain patterns and talking points employed by those you are arguing against. Whether it's online, in person, or simply watching people on TV argue with other people on TV, the one I keep hearing from the pro-gun control crowd is that, "No one is talking about taking your guns away".

And this is where it immediately gets confusing.

I mean, the guy admitted he smoked pot! Case closed; pack it up. It's not like the state or feds would make things up or wantonly attribute causes (without tangible information) in order to retain a specific revenue stream. They wouldn't do that ::rolls eyes::.

Schultz mentions 6,000 delegates in a way that suggests that it would have been too difficult to actually get an accurate vote on the platform changes.

This was a delegate convention. The entire purpose was to obtain votes! If taking accurate votes at the DNC Convention was too much of a hassle, then where and when do Americans actually get a vote? What is the point?
