Leviathan:  May I respectfully request that you not cover as many points as your last post has?  It makes it difficult to cover and either refudiate or agree with that many topics.

      I agree with your concerns about Obama.  Your right, he has not specifically said that he won't attack Iran or leave Iraq.  However we pretty much know what will happen if Hillary or John gets in.  Nothing will change and will most likely get worse.  I think that it was the late Senator Dirkson of Illinois who observed that "politicians don't see the light, but they do feel the heat."  If your a politician and you start getting tons of mail, phone calls and e-mails from voters angry at what your doing your going to maybe reconsider your position on that subject.  (excepting W, but that's a whole nother story.)  Obama has played it exactly right, by not getting specific on any one subject, he has managed to use his personal craisma to convince the average voter that he's on their side and in my opinion will likely be our next president.
My opinion is that it doesn't matter who gets in.  Obama won't do much that's different than Hillary, except probably use a different method to go after universal health care.  And people will likely vote for him anyway for term 2.
      The authoritarians were very smart from the beginning by establishing a standardized early education system based on the german model which guaranteed that there would not be any rational deductive reasoning placed in the early years of a childs developing mind pattern.  By doing so they eliminated several generations of children that were automatically taught to think of the government as their mommy and daddy and laid the entire ground work for the entire socialistic system that we revile today.   :'(
Those that break free from the mentality still take years to do it.  Yes, very smart of them.  But the end product is education insufficient to maintain a technological society.  So it's in the end self-defeating.

That's not the reason.  Most of the time that I'm writing I'm frequently interupted by a laundry list of things that happen and that I have to take care of.   Makes it very difficult to concentrate sometimes as well as checking to see what I'm writing about is factually correct, like the time that I said that the prototype P-38 was armed with 4 fifty cals and a 37mm cannon.  I got that from memory and felt at the time I was correct without checking.  I start to write something and then two of the cats start fighting or one gets sick on the carpet for example.  When I finish I frequently have to start over what I was writing about.  It's just easier for me to cover one topic at a time.

I thought that a few of you libertarian minded folks out there, and you know who you are, would be interested in an article that I copied and sent to the press release e-mail site of the Libertarian Party.  It's title is self explainatory "Laws against buying Oil- Gold and Silver?"  What they did to the federal income tax back in 1913 it seems that they're now trying to do to real money.  Of course it's only going to apply to institutional investors and not us regular folks....YET.    >:(  >:(  >:(  >:(  >:(

While I have the chance, I'de like to tell you about tell you about a documentary movie that's coming out on limited engagement on August 21 called I.O.U.S.A. that details the runaway printing of money (a.k.a. inflation) by the United States government and the coming financial crash.  While this movie is considered "nonpolitical" it doesn't take much imagination to figure out that since the only people that have been in charge are the republicans and democracts that they must be the ones at fault.  Many people are interviewed including former U.S. controller David Walker and my favorite living congressman Ron Paul are in it.  For the record, I have no financial interest in the movie.
