I've been indifferent about politics for a while now.
I want a President who is concerned for all the people of all classes and races and doesn't heed to corporations and special interest groups. I also want somebody who doesn't go to war easily.
WHY IS THAT SO MUCH TO ASK?
As far as one who doesn't go to war easily, good luck with that. You know, the Founders were against a standing army; that's why it has to be funded every two years, per the Constitution. They, the Founders, rightly proclaimed that a standing army is a threat to liberty.
Don't know if you've ever seen this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8y06NSBBRtY
The full lenght versions are also available on youtube.
Combine the immense power of the military, the immense power of the surveillance engine with a power hungry, wannabe socialist dictator and you figure out what's in store.
The only solution to ensure liberty is the abolishment of the federal government and the restructuring of the 50 states into more practical, governable confederations.
You have some factual evidence to back that up right? Some historical document or Federalist Paper that backs this up.As far as one who doesn't go to war easily, good luck with that. You know, the Founders were against a standing army;
Hence the reason their budget is passed for the DoD every year.that's why it has to be funded every two years, per the Constitution.

You are a stark raving lunatic and we are witnessing your mental meltdown right here on CU. This bit of mindless moon bat gibberish proves it.
Trust me on this. You won't ever get anything approaching a sane answer from someone who thinks the only solution for the current problems in the country is secession by the red states.
He talks as crazy as the nuttiest people on DU who want all the Liberal states to become part of Canada.
There's plenty more but if you do your own research perhaps you'll retain some of the information and won't continue to come off as the chronic CU buffoon.
Why the DoD budget is passed every year is a direct result of precisely what Eisenhower warned against.
I know plenty about the founding of this Nation. You can quote personal opinions by one of the Founding Fathers all you want...but that doesn't make it law.
You won't find Madison's quote that you cited anywhere in the Constitution.
And at the end of the day that's what counts. Not your ranting bullshit.
Hence the reason the "Appropriation of Money to that Use" expires at the end of a year. The budget for the military indeed doesn't run for a term of longer than two years. It runs for a period of exactly ONE year. Then it is renewed...for another period of ONE year.Like I stated above, you don't know much about this country and it's founding, do you. Once again, do you own research and learn why the Founders put the following provision in Article I, Section 8 of the US Constitution: "To raise and support Armies, but no Appropriation of Money to that Use shall be for a longer Term than two Years;"
You're an idiot.
No it's passed in accordance with Article I, Section 8 of the US Constitution.Why the DoD budget is passed every year is a direct result of precisely what Eisenhower warned against.
Oh and Ike was warning people about Communism...not our own Government.
No because you want to equate the military as a threat to Liberty...just like the DUmmies do. THAT is why you're no better than the DUmmies. That is why you're a bat shit crazy barking moon bat.So, in your opinion, I'm a 'moonbat' for quoting the Founding Fathers. Once again, you've displayed your pathetic ignorance and arrogance to all. Way to go, boy.
How is the President supposed to live up to his responsibilities to defend the country from all enemies foreign and domestic if there wasn't a standing army to defend the people?
Your bullshit ranting is weak on it's own...but when it's held up to the light of reality...it and you...are just plain pathetic.
BTW, in the Founders day you would have been a Loyalist.
Question: have you ever bothered to read the Declaration of Independence or are you too wrapped up in the length of Miley Cyris' tongue to bother with such trivial pursuits?
The entire reason we have the Constitution...and the Bill of Rights is because what you seem to think is some kind of grand stroke of genius FAILED.
And if it didn't work when there were only 13 States and a couple million people...what makes you think it would work now with 50 states and over 300 million people?
Yeah...ok. Sure.BTW, in the Founders day you would have been a Loyalist.
You'd have been shot as a traitor...to the Colonists.
Of course I have. Many times. Which is why I know that you're so full of shit and don't know half of what you think you do about the Declaration or the Constitution.Question: have you ever bothered to read the Declaration of Independence
Who?or are you too wrapped up in the length of Miley Cyris' tongue to bother with such trivial pursuits?
