America's Real War

America's real war; Craige McMillan; WorldNetDaily

The 20th century was a horrible litany of absurd experiments and atrocities committed by intellectuals, or by elite groupings that claimed a higher knowledge. Simple folk usually have enough common sense to avoid the worst errors. Sometimes they need to take very stern action to stop intellectuals leading us to ruin.

– Ambrose Evans-Pritchard

Gen. McChrystal was wasting his time in Afghanistan. The real war is going on here, in America. It's the war the ism-infatuated intellectuals and East Coast elitist thieves have been waging against America since the days of the 16th and 17th amendments to the Constitution.

The 16th Amendment (do it for the war, don't you know) gave the federal government a reliably massive source of coercive funding, free of constitutional constraints, which enabled it to grow far beyond anything the Founding Fathers could have imagined (or perhaps they had – which is why they took such pains to limit their federal creation).

Don't miss Ron Paul's best-selling book, in which he urges citizens and elected officials alike to "End the Fed"

The Federal Reserve was created almost immediately afterward that same year (Dec. 23, 1913 – Merry Christmas, America). This gave the federal government the power to control banks, regardless of where they were located, and thus the flow of money nationwide. It was also a reliable purchaser of federal government debt – in case "enough" tax money to feed the beast could not be collected from the nation's newly indentured servants (formerly known as citizens).

The 17th Amendment broke the back of states' power over the federal government by removing state legislatures' ability to appoint United States senators to represent them in Congress. It centralized power in urban areas, destroyed rural areas and made the power of the press to manipulate public opinion during election time a very valuable commodity. ...

I agreed with 90 percent of McMillan's article up to the point that he called for GEN McChrystal to basically come home and fight here. The last thing we need in this modern age is for generals to become involved with the political process. It's highly doubtful McChrystal has the ideals of Eisenhower considering he voted for Obama, and is most likely a member of the Council for Foreign Relations (CFR), the main western think tank that has been the center behind these global wars.

Most likely McChrystal will get a job on the board of directors of some large defense industrial company and promote more war and the greater use of the military tools to be used against the US people.

#1. I agree; since WWII we have been engaged in a steady state of war, it's about time we left that heading and it's doubtful a general would lead us away from this direction.
