    That depends on the regime change and which little disenfranchised group was chosen to replace the other.. The question is how well did that little disenfranchised group do? People are expendable whether it is our own or others.

    You can start with the membership of the CFR.

    But really, asking such a ridiculous question does you no favors. If you don’t know about the CFR, you need to check yourself.

    No. I don’t believe that. You think a massive and very expensive military that must subjugate the world, is good. I do not.

    History shouts that continuous military interventions aboard leads to tyranny at home. We are watching occur before our eyes.

    Words have meaning. We are not an empire.

    How many US citizens are moving out of the US to colonize this empire? The US doesn't even come close to the definition of an Empire.

    We just need to control the IMF and have our military bases all over, which is why we have families in bases abroad.

    Rand Paul said it best last night.
