You make a great point. I used to be a Democrat until I started listening to Limbaugh in the 80s. Then I started to examine what I really beleived in
and found that I was only Democrat because my Mom and Dad had been Dems. I found that conservatism aligned more closely to what I beleive and and for
a long time I bought into the whole "Fair & Balanced" deal. Now I'm even more awake and aware that all media is state controlled.
There is a tremendous amount of propaganda out now about Iran. That's why I beleive the establishment is so threatened by RP - because they can't
afford to allow anything to derail their next enterprise. And that is exactly what our government is governed by - the military industrial
establishment and their next money making enterprise / war.
Iran may be a slight regional threat but the biggest threat they represent is the threat that we WON'T get to go to war against them. Our
establishment WON'T allow us NOT to got to war with Iran. Our military industrial complex is like a big criminal defense law firm - if they lose a
big revenue stream case (Iraq), they need to replace them with another big revenue stream case (Iran). They could care less who wins or loses (ala.
Madeline Albright regarding one million dead Iraqi's "It was worth it") as long as the money flows from taxpayers, to the military budget, to the
defense contractors who contribute to Congressional campaigns and approve appropriations to allow war and more defense spending to happen.
