There is a reason we are a democratic republic.
The founding fathers understood that one man, one vote is self destructive.
All one has to be is popular, or threaten or bribe enough people and you’re in.
Look at Rhodesia and South Africa for the effects of one man, one vote.
Heck if memory serves, Hitler was elected by popular vote.
Embodies what America lost in leadership.
I think Vince Foster would disagree.
Same with the Putin detractor who suddenly and miraculously had an accident just days ago. Thats three recently if I am recalling correctly.
Old Vlady may be a strong leader, that doesn’t make him moral, ethical, just or even right. But I would agree with thug.
He reminds me of the Chicago politicians. With less redeeming attributes.November 9, 2014 at 7:20 am #28669
Democracy = two wolves and a sheep voting on what to have for dinner.

I do not know, just like most of us real story behind all of this, and what is gonna be at the end.
But i know one thing for a fact, when tanks start to rumble people simply change their views and see things from different perspective.
NATO sounds powerful, and it is, but here in my part of the world, people from smaller NATO countries have fears when tanks rumble, small countries get easily overrun by shear force of numbers.
Fear is dangerous thing, and smart politicians know that very well, and know how to use that.November 9, 2014 at 5:05 pm #28687
Aye , and the Russians are good at overrunning .November 9, 2014 at 5:11 pm #28689
Absolutely agree Tolik.November 9, 2014 at 8:12 pm #28704
*sigh* this is what i think is really happening. *ducks from incoming missiles*
Russia threatened pre emptive strikes about 3 or 4 years ago in regards to the anti balistic missile systems positioned in romania, poland, and the main water ways between europe and russia. this was because the anti balistic missile systems where in direct contravention of the current M.A.D. policy that both sides of the cold war agreed on. (the policy where they would target all citys, civilians, and strategic structures in one fell swipe)
the new defense systems eliminate the stale mate between the two super powers, the only way to have mutually assured destruction now, is if russia makes the first strike… like with those 500 mile range missiles they just moved into range of poland this last month.
If the usa was to accidently hit the button first, russia would be obliterated and the nato anti ICBM systems tho not 100% capable of stopping all missiles, would probably stop enough of them to ensure continuity of government… largely because they have been constructing over 2000-4000 new underground bases per year since 2001, (the truckers supplying these underground systems claim that they are all done prepping them btw as of last year).
so last year we had the syria crisis, usa threatens to invade syria, which would have drawn in iran, causing a cluster **** in the midoil east. Russia and china recognized this as a subtle attack on their supplys of oil and to their economies. Russia threatened to invade saudi arabia (right after the saudi prince threatened terror attacks to russia during the olympics) and China publicly threatened the USA with nuclear annihilation and changed their no first strike policy to a first strike policy… (this all also happened right around the time a mysterious missile contrail apeared off the coast of california… which i believe was a chinese sub and a threat…)
enter our current situation. the usa is still trying to get boots on the ground in syria, russia doesnt like that much…
now this last bit is just my opinion… but every time we get close to a decision being made by obama or nato in regards to syria and isis, russia makes a move accross the boarder or threatens ukraine.
the reason that that is significant… is because they are inching ever so closer to the anti ICBM systems currently protecting europe from a first strike from “”””Iran”””” (laughing out loud)….
so in a nut shell we are on the cusp of world war three, if we invade syria and provoke an iran response. we in the west win… long term… because the economy of both china and russia will be brought to heel… they know this… which is why they are ready to go to war over it.
if a war broke out, the common people would believe that russia and china where the ones to hit first… but in fact the first fists have flown from we in the west, its just all plausibly deniable.
just like during ww2 and the oil embargo against japan that was the pre curser to japan invading oil rich territory and of coarse pearl harbor…
thats why both sides are engaged in such a biblical propaganda war of pointing fingers… regardless of what kind of war occurs… someones gonna get the blame afterwords.
and it wont be the banks, oil giants etc…
now as if that all wasn’t scarey enough… rewind to ww2… and do a little digging, and you will find that certain people funded both sides of the war, both politically, ideologically and with real cash and fuel… and then fast forward to the current situation we are in, and really ask yourself who benefits.
what disturbs me the most… is that there is a “conspiracy theory” that suggested before the war to end all wars, there would be a european union, north american union, and an asian union of economic and banking systems…
this latest deal with the brics is the asian union, or appears to be…
the final stages in that “consipracy” are, a biblical war people will call armagedon, unification under a new leader (most likely a religion, new or old, no doubt to be called the anti christ), unification of all the worlds currencys, unification of the worlds armys, and the elimination of anything that may pose a threat to those power bases. (i.e. christians, politically motivated militias etc.)
In my humble opinion, the ultimate goal is of coarse power… and please I am not trying to start a fight by saying this, but as far as the majority of people on this planet are concerned, there is no authority higher than god, not even money (and that means every religion, not just muslims and christians). So it is the ultimate way to get people to do what you want, it even trumps the ability to print as much money as you want.

It sure seems like it. Too many conflicts and building tension on too many fronts…..November 10, 2014 at 5:18 am #28760
Remember……………if the US and Russia launch……………..so does China ( Russia’s ally ) , there will be mutually assure destruction .November 10, 2014 at 10:32 am #28777
Tolik, in my tyraid i forgot to mention we have also encircled china with anti icbm.
About the only thing that has kept the balance in check seems to be the subs (limited exchange)
M.A.D. is a full exchange everyone dies.
The world gets really scarey when you google “soviet dead hand” and realize that system is operating on software from the cold war lol… Don’t google it if you don’t want to know.
I am not prepared for nuclear Armageddon lol.

The US doesnt have the stomach for an all out conflict with a power(s) that can actually hurt them , Russia most likely doesnt either , they are still the mighty bear , but they are a shadow of a military of what they were during the Soviet Union . Look at the chain reaction that started the first world war . In this case , somebody mentioned the smaller nations , like Romania and Poland . If they went into Poland , Germany would mobilize immediately , they would have to , as their borders would be in direct threat . If Germany mobilized , That would most likely bring the UK , France , and the other larger NATO countries into a similar state . Be interesting to see how this plays out , it may turn out to be not much of anything in the larger picture .November 11, 2014 at 2:06 am #28842
Seams to me most of the NATO countries have small armies that are no match for anything. I watched a video of Dutch forces in Afghanistan and they act like school boys with guns. Not a inspiring sight.November 11, 2014 at 2:17 am #28843
Well I am not trying to be an alarmist or anything, but poland has already called its reserves up and shifted the bulk of its military to the eastern boarder.

I don’t imagine a million man draft is going to be any less inspiring when it comes to training, but it is certainly possible under the right conditions.
