I want Wes Clark as my president

January 8, 2007

I am going to start linking as many links as I can concerning Wes Clark. I was a Deaniac, and now I am a Clark fan. So go read these links and find out why you should be a Clark fan too.

Wes Clark op-ed in the Washington Post:

The truth is that the underlying problems are political, not military.

Vicious ethnic cleansing is underway, as various factions fight for power and survival. In this environment, security is unlikely to come from smothering the struggle with a blanket of forces — and increasing U.S. efforts is likely to generate additional resistance, especially from Iraq’s neighbors. More effective action is needed to resolve the struggle at the political level. A new U.S. ambassador might help, but the administration needs to recognize that the neoconservative vision has failed.

Well before the 2003 invasion, the Bush administration was sending signals that its intentions weren’t limited to Iraq; “regime change” in Syria and Iran was often discussed in Washington. Small wonder then that both countries have worked continuously to feed the fighting in Iraq.

Dealing with meddling neighbors is an essential element of resolving the conflict in Iraq. But this requires more than border posts and threatening statements. The administration needs a new strategy for the region, before Iran gains nuclear capabilities. While the military option must remain on the table, America should take the lead with direct diplomacy to resolve the interrelated problems of Iran’s push for regional hegemony and nuclear power, the struggle for control of Lebanon, and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Isolating our adversaries hasn’t worked.

Absent such fundamental change in Washington’s approach, there is little hope that a troop surge and accompanying rhetoric will be anything other than “staying the course” more. That wastes lives and time, bolsters the terrorists and avoids facing up to the interrelated challenges posed by a region in crisis.

And then check out A Left Turn FOR CLARK for Wes Clark related posts and a lot of good Wes Clark grass roots supporting links.

And, as a bonus, here is Clark speaking at the Texas State Convention last summer. If you watch the crowd, I’m in the front row, dead center, in the green shirt.

While you are at it, pour a drink, kick off your shoes and relax. World War III doesn’t start for another hour.

    Ron Paul: Next President Of The USA?
    Texas Congressman enjoys support across political spectrum, anti-war pro-freedom hero represents America’s last hope

    Ron Paul’s office has confirmed reports that the Texas Congressman is set to run for the 2008 Presidency. Paul unites opposition to the war and the police state at home across the entire political spectrum and in contrast to the current gaggle of criminals running the White House, represents everything that America truly stands for. A gargantuan effort in support of Ron Paul needs to be mobilized now to prevent Americans from being hoodwinked once again into electing a different puppet of the same dark establishment in 2008.

    Paul first ran for President as the Libertarian candidate in 1988, receiving a massive 400,000 votes. He now commands the support of those all across the political spectrum, from libertarians through anti-war Democrats to real paleoconservative Republicans.

    Paul has been in and out of Congress since the 70’s and is universally hated by the Republican elite, who routinely back Democrats against him just to try and get him out of office. The former Vietnam flight surgeon is the perfect candidate for President and activists from every corner of every political persuasion should mobilize now in an attempt to help Paul shatter the power monopoly of the Republican and Democrat establishment who have worked together for decades to slit America’s throat in the interests of power, greed, and ego – all working towards the realization of a new world order.

    The Texan represents a dying breed in Congress, those who actually cast their votes in accordance with the Constitution and not at the discretion of lobbyists or the fear that the elite will tarnish their political careers if they don’t continually support the establishment. As a result Ron Paul is the elite’s worse nightmare, simply having him on the ticket itself will be a massive public relations blow, and that’s why media organs will probably be activated to try and discredit him before 2008.

    Paul was one of only a handful of Republicans to vote against the illegal invasion of Iraq, contenting rightly that the Constitution clearly states that only Congress can declare war. In bucking a trend, Paul was anti-war long before the majority of the country came around to a similar way of thinking following the catastrophe of the occupation.

    While Democrats soft-peddle and cozy up to Bush, creating phony arguments about the level of troop presence in Iraq and ignoring the majority will of the country to bring the troops home immediately, Ron Paul’s opposition to unnecessary wars of intervention has remained steadfast throughout his entire political career.

    If a gargantuan effort is made from now until the end of 2008 to heighten Paul’s media profile and forward him as America’s last hope, he truly has a significant chance of giving Jeb Bush, Rudy Giuliani or whichever elitist puppet the Republicans choose to put forward a real run for their money.

    At the very least it’s a chance to attract attention to some serious issues and hold the establishment’s feet to the fire. But with the favor of the political landscape continually swinging away from the scam repeatedly run by the Republicrats and Democans, we should really start off on a positive footing and consider the fact that Ron Paul, though still an underdog, has a real chance of becoming the next President.

    According to the Associated Press , “Paul bills himself as “The Taxpayers’ Best Friend,” and is routinely ranked either first or second in the House by the National Taxpayers Union, a national group advocating low taxes and limited government.”

    On every single issue of national importance – borders, the war, limited government, U.S. sovereignty, tax and the federal reserve – Ron Paul stands for populist ideals that the country is screaming out for after seven years of hell under Bush, preceded by eight years of disgrace under Bill Clinton.

    Ron Paul voted against the Patriot Act, opposes the draft, advocates the abolition of the income tax, urges the re-introduction of the gold standard, and stands against initiatives to strip the U.S. of its sovereignty such as CAFTA and the FTAA.

    During several appearances on The Alex Jones Show , Ron Paul has consistently upheld his commitment to civil liberties, slammed the militarized police state that Bush has created and also called for immediate impeachment proceedings to be brought against the current incumbent of the White House.

    President Ron Paul could truly return America to the great nation it once was and his decision to run is an exciting development that we should all embrace and stand beside him in the fight to restore some form of dignity to the office of President that has been completely absent since the assassination of John F. Kennedy in 1963.

    “Congressman Ron Paul is a dream candidate, a super patriot, a total Constitutionalist, an American hero.”

    “We must elect him President.”
