Scary Barry Not So Funny

Check out the short animated film "What Barry Says." (see graphic below) I dig the art of it.
Then, go to this web site and read their statement of principles: http://www.newamericancentury.org/index.html

Pay close attention to the names at the bottom of the statement and ask yourself the following questions:
1. What do they mean by "American principles?"
2. How exactly does a nation "shape circumstances before crises emerge?"
3. What do they mean by "preserving and extending an international order friendly to our security, our prosperity, and our principles?"
This is scary stuff if this organization is real.

It is a shame we don't pay more attention to our Founding Fathers.

"Safety from external danger is the most powerful director of national conduct. Even the ardent love of liberty will, after a time, give way to its dictates. The violent destruction of life and property incident to war, the continual effort and alarm attendant on a state of continual danger, will compel nations the most attached to liberty to resort for repose and security to institutions which have a tendency to destroy their civil and political rights. To be more safe, they at length become willing to run the risk of being less free.....STANDING ARMIES....would...be necessitated to strengthen the executive arm of government, in doing which their constitutions would acquire a progressive direction toward monarchy [dictatorship]. It is of the nature of war to increase the executive at the expense of the legislative authority....The perpetual menacings of danger oblige the government to be always prepared to repel it....The military state becomes elevated above the civil."
- Alexander Hamilton, Nov. 20, 1787, Federalist #8

Time to move to the remote and inaccessable areas of the mountains. Time to start digging, or perhaps to reopen that old abandoned mine shaft...


...and move indoors.

One other thing.

Read some of the letters they have published since 1998. Be sure to read the names of those who signed the letters.

A Conspiracy.....
...Theory?
...or...Fact? Perhaps?
