    Most people in the middle to left of American politics do not hate George W. Bush as a person. They hate many of the policies of President Bush’s Administration. The Neocons, religious right, military industrial complex, and capital-intensive big business are strongly behind the Republican Party. The Republicans claiming to be fiscal conservatives yet in five years the Bush Administration with a Republican Congress and Senate controlled have raised the American National Debt by over two trillion dollars.

    Most of the American military hawks are Republicans while most of the doves are liberals with many of the Democrats on the fence. In American federal politics it is political suicide to stand up against the military industrial complex. The Republican Party are the big spenders on the military industrial complex and big business welfare programs often in the name of national security. Because the Democrats tend to be more liberal than the Republicans, the Democratic Party is more fractured and inclusive while the Republican Party is more united and focused on their narrow vision to the way things should be.

    The Democratic Party while in control of the White House over the last 50 years has added less than three billion dollars to the national debt. While the Republicans had control of the White House over the last 25 years they have added over 5 billions dollars to the national debt. Yet, the Democrats are labeled the big spenders and the Republicans are labeled the fiscally conservatives. The amount of money the United States government borrows from the world’s capital market is a crime against humanity. Spending the hundreds of billions of dollars on war and the military industrial complex. Will make it so you will not have the resources to spend on the humanitarian projects that are greatly needed to improve the lives of people who are less fortunate.

    Are you suggesting the Republicans should actually try to scale back big government instead of expanding it as they have been? Why should they bother when the electorate doesn't care? This is a democracy, people get the government they deserve.

    The miss-use of the State National Guard has greatly reduced our national security. America’s frontline of homeland security belongs at home in the United States. Today the United States government has taken on the role as global cop. Bringing capitalism in the name of democracy at the other end of a loaded gun. America’s foreign policies are threatening America’s national security unlike never before in history.

    The American people can’t afford the misguided policies of the United States Federal Government. The economic, political, and social abuses that are promoted in the name of democracy and freedom are a crime against the human race. It is fraud for the profits and gains of a very few. Look at the living conditions of the people to America’s longest and strongest allies around the world. Nations of people who America declares they are going to help. Whether they are in the Philippines, South America, Middle East or the American Indians and African Americans. What has our federal government really done to help these people?

    While the salaries and income of those people at the very top go up at double digits rates with the incomes of the bottom 90% of the people remain basically the same. With the cost of living is rising beyond the means of most American people the security of the American family is in great jeopardy. The cost of health care is at the root of bankruptcies of many American people and business. The high cost of court litigation is also a contributing factor to the bankruptcy of America. Making is so that America is no longer global competitive.

    It is the policies, laws, and actions of our own federal government that is the biggest threat to the security of the American people as well as the people of the world. Today we have fewer friends and more enemies around the world. More American people are living on the fringes of bankruptcy because their salaries are not keeping up with their rising bills and taxes. With the family debt of today looking more like the saving accounts of families in the past. In other words the saving accounts of the bottom 90% of the America people today looks like or similar to the personal debt of the people the 50’s and 60’s. At a time the American people saved more and borrowed less.

    Really, the only things that have kept the American economy afloat are the immoral gotten gains from gunboat diplomacy with foreign governments and the global tyrants and criminals investing in America as a safe haven. Otherwise the American economy would have imploded years ago. This is not a Republican or Democratic thing it is the security of the American people and the people in the world. Today too many of the national politicians are more loyal to their party than their nation. They are not serving the best interests of the American people but to the special interests that are apart of their party.

    Major changes need to come about that are far beyond our imagination. Without these major changes within our system, we will not survive the current course we are on today. Time is no longer on our side unless we make many changes for the better. Bringing the best interests of the people of the nations and world into balance is the key. For every action there is a reaction. The answers are found within the reactions to our problems.

    I know one thing for sure. When I was serving in the U.S.M.C. when the democratic party was in control, the equipment we had was outdated, the training was poor and the leadership at the top was chicken and so dam politically correct. The Mogadishu operation in Somali was a good example of leadership at the top afraid of projecting U.S. military might. The JSOC command requested U.S. armor far in advanced of the operation and was denied by former President Clinton's secretary of defense Les Aspen. That one decisions cost the lives of several Delta Force operators and the lives of Army Rangers. All in the name of political correctness.

    The National Guard has never been trained to be a homeland security force for the nation national security. At least not in the terms as a fighting brigade or a large battalion to stop an invading force from entering the U.S.

    People want to point the finger at former president George Bush Sr. for the downsizing of the U.S. Armed Forces after the Desert Shield/Desert Storm. But many of the guys I served with wanted out when President Clinton ran the military into the ground with his poor leadership as commander in chief and his lack of morale character for the office of president. I know for some of the American people it did not matter, but the men and women who wear the uniform. Honor, duty and character says a lot about a leader.

    Toppling dictators IS a humanitarian expenditure.
