A rational national security policy needs a set of strategic goals underpinned by a broad political consensus, just as the Constitution provides. It is not an Executive Affair. It is a national affair. Unless this is remembered the world will become ever more dangerous. For it was not Putin alone who destabilized the situation; an incompetent, mendacious and vain administration played its part . By its incompetence, through its cheating and by its vanity it has led the nation and the world to the brink of the abyss.

We have a Ruling Class and a Ruling Party more than happy to let Barack Obama make as many deadly mistakes as he feels like, as long as they can use the politics of his failures to make sure they keep their snouts firmly affixed to the national gravy train.

America is some place beyond the Beltway.  They don’t go there very often, and they care even less what happens to it.  Well, as long as their snouts keep meeting the trough.

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.
