“We have to have total clarity about what we do, when it comes to everything — a woman’s right to choose, gay marriage … whether it’s about immigration, whether it’s about gun safety, whether it’s about climate … I think that we owe the American people to be there for them, for their financial security, respecting the dignity and worth of every person in our country, and if there’s some collateral damage for some others who do not share our view, well, so be it, but it shouldn’t be our original purpose.” ~ Nancy Pelosi
Here’s Nancy saying that on camera: https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=114&v=4i0d2-y35Gc
Here we have Nancy Pelosi, former Speaker of The U.S. House, now leader of the Democrat Party in the House, accepting collateral damage if needed to achieve her goals. As Speaker of the House, she was only second in line from the President to having her finger on the nuclear trigger.
The U.S. was led into all of the huge, hot wars of the 20th century by Democrats.
(a) WWI – Woodrow Wilson,
(b) WWII – FD Roosevelt,
(c) Korean War – Truman,
(d) Vietnam War – JFK/LBJ.
Why is that?
The war led by Republicans in 20th century was cold and dominated by negotiations and ended by Republican President Reagan. The Cold War Republicans were Eisenhower, Nixon ,Ford and Reagan.
The Cold War Democrats were Kennedy, Johnson and Carter. They built up US nuclear weapons capability and almost got us into all out nuclear war more than once. JFK and the Cuban missile crisis with Russia are well known. We had atomic bomb drills in all schools and bomb shelters in those scary days. Johnson and Carter were advised on national security by Zbignew Brzezinski, who was an advocate of Realpolitik, which is the epitome of the mentality of domination and the rule of ego.
In Realpolitik the definition of “world politics ultimately is always and necessarily a field of conflict among actors pursuing power.” Realpolitik is “based on the management of the pursuit, possession, and application of power.” https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Realism_(international_relations) In his book “The Grand Chessboard” Brzezinski writes “it is imperative that no Eurasian challenger should emerge capable of dominating Eurasia and thus also of challenging America’s global pre-eminence.” https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Grand_Chessboard
For example, Brzezinski and Carter promoted an international arms and allies competition with Russia, notably and proudly claiming that they started the war between Russia and Afghanistan, and they fueled it with CIA-supplied weapons. Afghanistan was not the only place. Carter and Brzezinski’s power game is the reason Iran had an “Islamic Revolution” in 1979 and became a Russian ally, overthrowing 2,500 years of continuous Persian monarchy and the support of the U.S. The Iranian Revolution is a copy of the Russian Revolution. The people were played for fools. JFK took us to the brink of nuclear war with Russia…and JFK was assassinated by Lee Harvey Oswald. A former U.S. Marine radar operator, Oswald defected to the Soviet Union and became a Marxist. He turned over to the Soviet the flight specifications for the secret U2 high speed, high altitude spy plane. That was the information that enabled Russia to shoot down Francis Gary Powers, ending the U2 program. How was Oswald allowed to return to the U.S. where he shot Kennedy? These were gigantic ego trips.
Democrats/leftists cannot control their egos. Ruled by emotion, they are too quick to grab weapons and resort to violence. Like Nancy Pelosi and many more, they assume and always have assumed that the end goal justifies the means, which is exactly the justification communists used in Russia, China, Cambodia, and Vietnam to kill millions of their own people, willing to “sacrifice an entire generation to achieve their goal,” collateral damage.
The “mentality of domination and the rule of ego” are the end goal of the left, not Republicans, not conservatives, not even the far-right wing. The far right wants anarchy, wants government to leave them alone. Fascism is not right wing; that’s propaganda. Fascism is leftist, a form of socialism, control of the people and means of production by the government, more government not less. In reality, what are rigidly class-based societies like Europe, Russia, Iran, China, Islam, fascism, communism, “social justice” if not a mentality of domination and the rule of ego? When theory, rhetoric, and propaganda are removed from these structures, then there is nothing left but an oligarchy with a mentality of domination ruled by ego which subjugates the dependent people below them.
If you put your trust in Democrats, if you give them your vote, you are signing up for the war party. Kids, do you know where your draft cards are?
