We have bases in over 170 countries around the world. We have 1.4 million people on active duty and another 1.4 million reserves. What about that suggests any need for more troops?
In one of Romney's latest addresses, he expresses a desire to to add 28 ships and 100,000 active duty personnel. Based on average costs, these additions carry an $84 billion price tag just for the initial buy-in. Bigger military is still bigger government.
Combine that with the outright attack against Ron Paul delegates at the RNC and it really doesn't seem likely that I can, with a clear conscience, hold my nose and vote for Romney. Voting for the lesser of two evils is still voting for evil.
If the GOP can't nominate a truly polarizing candidate that offers clear and inverse plan to what the progressives are doing, then there's really no point in voting. It's like choosing who's driving the car that broadsides you.
Those who would give up Essential Liberty to purchase a
little Temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.
