A really good read by David Stockman.
R.I.P., American empire. Citizens, are you ready to re-establish the republic? Voting out incumbents would be a good start; but just voting isn’t nearly enough. Run for office yourself, join a government watchdog group, feed the homeless, read history books with your kids: There are a million ideas for rebuilding your local community.
Hail to the Spanker-In-Chief: The American Imperium is Finally Over
September 4, 2013
Next week Congress can do far more than stop a feckless Tomahawk barrage on a small country which is already a graveyard of civil war and sectarian slaughter. By voting “no” it can trigger the end of the American Imperium — five decades of incessant meddling, bullying and subversion around the globe which has added precious little to national security, but left America fiscally exhausted and morally diminished.
But however the current debate specifically unfolds, the good news is that the world greatest deliberative body is now back in charge of American foreign policy. By long standing historical demonstration, the US Congress specializes in paralysis, indecision and dysfunction. In the end, that is how the American warfare state will be finally brought to heel and why the American Imperium will come to an end — at last.
