Actually's Presidential Endorsement for 2012/ The Dangers of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA)

Posted Sunday, January 8, 2012, at 7:46 AM

Restore America Now - Endorse Liberty
Actually officially endorses Ron Paul in the G.O.P. primary and for the office of president in 2012.

While we appreciate your input, Actually, do you really think Ron Paul has a change to win on any level?

Surely the GOP can do better than this group.

I don't think Paul has a chance to win with the current leadership in the G.O.P. The media obviously doesn't want him to win either, as they continually refuse to cover his campaign with any seriousness if they even acknowledge him at all on certain nights. Regardless, Obama's actions throughout his administration have led me to believe that Obama's policies are more Republican than any of the Republicans challenging him for his seat. The signing of the NDAA is particularly troubling to me. I don't agree with Ron Paul on everything, but I think he has some very valid points. I like Paul's support of our individual liberties. I like the idea of ending the Federal Reserve, I.R.S., and C.I.A. I like the idea of discontinuing our support for countries like Israel (the reason we have problems with terrorists). I could go further in analyzing his campaign, but I'll just keep it simple. I think Paul is honest (or as honest as any politician can be). I was disappointed in Obama's bailouts. I was disappointed by Obama's failure to bring the troops home from Iraq quickly. I was disappointed by Obama's actions in Pakistan (killing bin Laden). The same goes for Libya. I'm disappointed by Obama's decision to continue Bush-era tax cuts. I'm disappointed by Obama's softball pitching to big money banking interests in our government. The list goes on and on. That being said, if Paul does not get the nomination for the G.O.P., I will either not vote or support Paul as a third-party/independent candidate. Regardless, the corporate take over of our government has to stop soon before it is too late.

You did not support killing Bin Laden, you just lost my respect in reading your postings. Until this day I always thought your posts were informative. Just don't understand your logic in this statement. Bin Laden was an evil person.

While I agree with Actually's above comment, I congragulate his endorsement! Ron Paul has some ideas I don't like such as his wanting to legalize marijuana. But his views on trimming government, etc. are good. As i stated in my blog, he is too out of the mainstream to be nominated by the GOP. I'm not a Republican. I'm a Prohibitionist. We have a Caucus system here in Missouri now which means most of us will not vote for the Democrat or Republican nominees. If we had a bonafide primary, I'd vote for Ron Paul inspite of what I said in my blog! Thanks, Actually!

Dexterite never comments on my Daily Statesman blogs. He just waits until they get posted on the SE Missourian Speak Out! LOL!

Here's the thing about bin Laden, Dexterite1. Moving into Pakistan (a sovereign nation) and carrying out military actions was not only risky, but something we wouldn't stand for if said actions were taken against our own nation. This is classic hypocrisy. The decision to enter Pakistan without their knowledge to kill a military target was simply bad policy in my opinion. It could have had horrible repercussions. In fact, it did. We lost one of our vital national secrets in the helicopter that was downed in the area (not to mention even more money thrown down the hole that is this war). Furthermore, I stand with Ron Paul in his view's to stop our support of Israel (the entire reason bin Laden was a military target of ours in the first place). If a terrorist decided to come to America and take out justice on George W. Bush, our country would probably launch another war. Whenever we waltz into a nation and murder someone, we never even blink an eye. That isn't even getting me started on what I feel are the real reasons behind 9/11, the war on terror, etc. If I lost your respect for taking an objective stance on yet another shady move by the corporate government, I didn't want it in the first place. Blindly supporting the invasion of another country's rights so we can kill a military target we created and once supported while spending inordinate amounts of money in the process never even had my respect.

I mean really to sum it all up, I'm tired of the politics of fear.

-- Posted by Actually on Tue, Jan 10, 2012, at 10:55 PM

No one replies to your Statesman posts, swift. It's refreshing to see that the Cape crowd is not intimidated by your "Voice of God" approach to politics.

-- Posted by goat lady on Wed, Jan 11, 2012, at 8:48 AM

Hey, goat lady, I am not intimidated by you liberals either! You and Dexterite insult and demean those of us with whom you disagree, trying hard to intimidate us into keeping quiet, but it AINT GONNA (pardon my grammar) happen!

One thing I like about Actually, with whom I disagree on a number of things, is her avoidance of insulting. She articulates her point of view, and as a result, has moderated some of my own views. Of course, goat lady and dexterite never read my comments agreeing with Actually. Like the Pharisees and Sadducees of old, they look to find fault and try to twist the words of those with whom they disagree.

-- Posted by swift on Wed, Jan 11, 2012, at 3:30 PM

By the way goat lady, what is there in my latest blog that has a "Voice of God" approach to politics? I doubt you even read it!

-- Posted by swift on Wed, Jan 11, 2012, at 3:34 PM

Swift, you alone has the voice of God on your side. A person does not need to read your posts, same song, same verse, same substance.

-- Posted by Dexterite1 on Wed, Jan 11, 2012, at 6:16 PM

So, back to the issues at hand...

-- Posted by Actually on Wed, Jan 11, 2012, at 8:03 PM

You are right Actually! I'm tired of reading the same old song, same old verse, and same old substance of Dexterite and goat lady who only read material they know they might agree with. i appreciate your informative blog entries. We have disagreed many times, but I have come to your side on some issues because of your informative links. D1 and gl don't go to links on my posts because they might confuse their already made up liberal minds.

Anyway, I've believed for a long time that our invasions of other countries for the purposes you've outlined are just plain bad policy. this is why I opposed the Persian Gulf War of George Bush 1. We need to bring our troops home! As far as Israel goes, we should support Israel as an ally only to a point. If they are chosen by God, God will stand by Israel with or without our support! We are right now hated by most of the world for our constant getting into the affairs of other countries. It is none of our business!

Here's a question I'd like to have answered: What is the real duty of the National Guard and the Coast Guard? Is it to fight in nation building wars around the world/ If not, then we need to bring ALL NG and CG troops back home so they can guard our coasts and borders and also do the disaster relief and rescue efforts here at home.

Actually, I recieved an interesting email from Chuck Baldwin, Constitution Party presidential candidate in '08. I exerpt part of it for your consideration:

First NDAA; Now Enemy Expatriation Act

By Chuck Baldwin

January 12, 2012

On the heels of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA),

otherwise known as the "Indefinite Detention Act," comes another

draconian bill designed to give the federal government the power to

turn American citizens into enemies of the state for virtually any

reason it deems necessary. Stephen D. Foster, Jr. has the story.

"Congress is considering HR 3166 and S. 1698 also known as the

Enemy Expatriation Act, sponsored by Joe Lieberman (I-CT) and Charles

Dent (R-PA). This bill would give the US government the power to strip

Americans of their citizenship without being convicted of being

'hostile' against the United States. In other words, you can be

stripped of your nationality for 'engaging in, or purposefully and

materially supporting, hostilities against the United States.'

Legally, the term 'hostilities' means any conflict subject to the

laws of war but considering the fact that the War on Terror is a

little ambiguous and encompassing, any action could be labeled as

supporting terrorism."

I'd still like dexterite to answer me.

-- Posted by Actually on Mon, Jan 16, 2012, at 1:06 AM

FYI...Actually is not a "she" swift...Actually, if you have a satallite radio, tune it into channel 125 at 11am...so long everyone for another 6 months.

-- Posted by BonScott on Tue, Jan 17, 2012, at 11:51 PM

Well, Dexterite said Actually was a she on a different blog entry. I no longer trust Dexterite's judgement.

I am a Prohibitionist/Pro-life Republican: Strong national defense, Limited government, Individual liberty, and Traditional moral values as described in my blog entry, What ought to be Prohibited in 2012.

Actually, I doubt Dexterite will answer your question.

Rick, Very valuable info!

Hello BonScott; Bye BonScott!

Cool and a good Christian, but I don't trust his identifying capabilities! LOL
