These are the rants of an anonymous Left-leaning Libertarian. Libertarian views are generally socially liberal but fiscally conservative. I view George Bush as the anti-Libertarian, he is socially conservative and fiscally irresponsible. Unless you are a very wealthy person, religious fundamentalist, or a racist redneck, I cannot understand why a person would support George Bush.

Bush to destroy McCains Presidential bid

With regard to Iraq, the biggest issue in politics, John McCain has been calling for more troops. Never mind that we don't have more troops, McCain never says where they will come from, and rejects talk about a draft. He just keeps saying 'more troops'.

Cynical analysts say that McCain is just asking for something that he knows he can't have and that way he can never be proven wrong about his Iraq strategy because it was never tried. His campaign rejects that is his intention. Well, whether it was his intention or not, it was an astute observation of his Iraq positioning.

However . . . . it looks like Bush is going to give him what he never should have asked for . . . more troops. A leak has indicated that after the Iraq Study Group and other reviews, Bush is going to put more troops in Iraq. Uh oh . . . has Bush just planted the seeds for destroying the GOP's front-runner for 2008? Changing the troop strength by ten or twenty percent seems unlikely to have a real affect on the situation. When the 'more troops' strategy fails, McCain will be forever tagged as the guy who pushed for the failed 'more troops' strategy in Iraq.

Well, McCain deserves to be destroyed since he took all sorts of abuse from the Bushies and then sucked up to them. It is poetic justice to see him destroyed by the Bushies once again, even though that is not their intention. Watching McCain suck up to Jerry Falwell has been nauseating. Maverick, my ass. Goodbye John!

Ahmadinejad riles up his right-wing base

Iran's president Ahmadinejad has been mouthing off about Israel again and holding his silly anti-holocaust convention. What a jerk. Why is he doing this? Does he really plan on wiping Israel off the map? Of course not.

Ahmadinejad is simply spewing venom about Israel in order to curry support from his own right-wing conservative base. The right-wing base are suckers for nationalism, jingoism, and tough talk no matter what country they are located in. All you need to do is wrap yourself in your nations flag and thump the local Holy book. Right-wingers world-wide eat up that crap.

I don't think Ahmadinejad even cares if we launched an air-strike against Iran. In fact, he might be intentionally trying to get Bush to launch such an attack. Such an attack would solidify support for his party.

(I'm going to try to post on a more regular basis . . . it help me to get these thoughts out even if no one is reading them.)

Bush spreading dictatorship to USA!

The only "reason" for the Iraq war to remain standing was to liberate the Iraqi people and spread democracy. However, things haven't gone very well in that regard. The Iraqi people are liberated from Saddam, but there is no security such that they are more likely to be arbitrarily killed than under Saddam. And there is a weak democratically elected Iraqi government that would probably fall within weeks if we pulled out.

Right now, America is re-evaluating its policy for Iraq since it has become a quagmire. The James Baker lead Iraqi Study Group (named similarly to the Iraqi Survey Group to try make people forget about that previous failed group?) has published its report which basically amounts to strategic re-deployment . . . or, as the right-wingnuts would call it, "Cut & Run".

So today, there is a story about how the Saudis have warned against a US pull out from Iraq. They supposedly said that they will financially back the Sunnis in fighting against the Shiia if we pull out. Some reports have said that they are already financially supporting the Sunnis.

Well that is just great. In a new record for irony, Bush thought he would spread democracy in the mid-East . . . but instead, American foreign policy ends up being directed by a mid-East dictator. Wow.

We need a Bush Senior lead coup!

The apparent dismissal of the Iraq study group is the last straw. These Bushistas are out of control. The Dems won't pull the politically risky move of going for impeachment, so what we need is a military coup. Not a crazy left-lead military coup . . . We need a paternalistic George HW Bush senior led coup to bring some sanity back to the whitehouse.

The Republican elders have tried to counsel Bush Jr. nicely. They, but he is too stupid and way too stubborn. He absolutely REFUSES to admit mistakes and he seems to rather let men die than admit a mistake and change course.

And Cheney is no help, when was the last time he was right about ANYTHING? "Last throes", "Deficits don't matter", his Saddam & Al-Qaida conspiracy theories, "No doubt Saddam has WMDs", etc. Cheney can't even be trusted with a shotgun.

So Bush senior, the former head of the CIA, needs to call all his CIA contacts and get a coup d'etat going. Bush senior can bring in lots of rational elder statesmen to run things. Scrowcroft, James Baker, General Shinseki,etc. Round up the usual GOP suspects EXCEPT for the Neo-cons. The Neo-cons had their chance, they failed. The failed BIG TIME.

Don't misunderstand me. I strongly dislike the GOP, but Dem led coup would be too much of a shift for the country to accept. A moderate GOP led could be accepted by everyone. Bush has been bailed out by his Dad and his Dad's friends many times . . . one more time would not hurt.

How's that for "thinking outside the box" on Iraq policy?
