Default These Experts say it is do or die for Mitt Romney

Listen how they say Romney has to defend himself against Gignrich.

They also say that Gingrich isn't very good unless he is attacking someone and they say that Ron Paul is the most relaxed and entertaining one out there.

The sanctions the EU has agreed to impose upon Iran, will hurt the European and US economy's, and serve to benefit Saudi Arabia. Why would we enter into another war to help SA? Why? Because Iran dares to defend their sovereinty, as an independent nation, along with Syria. They are opposed to western hegemony.

War truly is hell, as the conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan remind us too well. Let’s remember that the terrible attacks on America of Sept. 11, 2001, were not from a nation, but from an alliance of individuals from many nations, most prominently Saudi Arabia. The U.S. attack on Iraq is now admittedly blamed on “faulty intelligence,” misinformation, and miscalculation. Vice President Dick Cheney predicted that the Iraq war would last six weeks and that U.S. forces would be welcomed with flowers as liberators.
All Americans opposed to another war must stand behind leaders seeking nonviolent resolutions to world situations that could blow up into wars that would wreck our economy, raise oil prices, profit only a few, and cause incalculable suffering everywhere, while we taxpayers foot the bill.

more current war stupidity:

The Pentagon has a practice called “condolence payments.” This is when U.S. commanders pay surviving family members thousands of dollars for every civilian they’ve killed. After a night operation in 2009 killed 15 civilians, U.S. commanders visited the village and handed out $40,000 in cash - $2,500 for each death, $500 for two wounded men and $1,500 for village repairs.

In this cynical policy, the Pentagon has doled out $688,000 in condolence and $6.8 million in battle repair funds in Afghanistan in the first half of fiscal 2011.

these wars are so beyond stupid that i am running out of words.

all of these actions, all this money thrown around, all of the deaths, all this "diplomacy" and intervention-and our popularity keeps dropping. (actually, obama's-but a perception of the US as well):

we certainly aren't winning friends, stabilizing countries, protecting civilians, or influencing people-- but we are going broke quickly.

that doesn't sound like a winning game plan to me.

And yet people continue to keep their blinders on, vote for the status quo, and who the media tells them to vote for, as well as treat politics like it's a damn sporting event! They're the same people who will b*** and moan that nothing is getting done, as unemployment rises, more jobs get shipped overseas, and more bulls*** wars are started! We have a candidate that while he may not be able to push all of his policies through, can be a serious thorn in the side of those who want to continue to screw us, and people are continuing to stick their heads in the sand!

We must remember that a 'surge' can be both upward OR downward.

Governor Rick Perry, for instance, 'surged' upwards, then 'surged' downwards.

Actually, I think Dr. Paul is much like a dandelion seed, that floats upon the gentle breeze, sometimes surging up, sometimes surging down, but always moving.

i truly believe that, if people ignore what is going on around them and continue with the "gigantic spending" presidents, we are going to be circling the drain within the next 4 years.

i was surprised to hear george soros talking about a possible meltdown but, then again, that may be soros talking his book. either way, it is clearly on the table --for a lot of people to be discussing it out in the open now.

this is something that should give every american pause for reflection before they vote.

massive overspending has serious consequences, whether it is on a personal level or a country level. i wouldn't expect ron paul to get very much of what he wanted passed, with his kind of congress, but at least if people could actually see some financial improvement with his policies they would be more willing to go in a better direction.

call it a light at the end of a very dark tunnel.

That is less than animal cruelty fines in many places.

Also not a topic you hear much about. Innocent civilians, who gain nothing, lose everything and had no say-so.
