“We can neither endure our vices nor face the remedies needed to cure them.” — Titus Livy
The history of the Democratic Party can be concisely captured by referring to its steadfast allegiance to the four S’s — Slavery, Secession, Segregation, and Socialism. During the Obama presidency we have seen how hard old habits die, even for a Black man whose race was the long-time victim of Democratic Party‘s bone-deep authoritarianism. Under this Democratic president we have seen a war waged on several fronts against America’s young. Indeed, the Democrats’ historic taste for and belief in slavery have resurfaced with a vengeance and indiscriminately under the Obama administration; whether white, black, yellow, red, male, or female America’s young are dieing and being forced to work for Obama and his lieutenants as they seek to maintain their party’s hold on political power.
The material below the dotted line is the written version of my part in a six-member panel’s presentation to the House’s Homeland Security Committee on 9 October 2013.

1.) Question: Is it justifiable for America to go to war in Syria to get President Obama out of the box he created for himself by talking about a “red line” in the Syrian civil war, a conflict in which no genuine U.S. national interests are at risk?
If you did not see Bret Baier’s program on FOX TV in the 6pm (Eastern) hour last night, and hear his Syria-focused discussion with U.S. Army General Jack Keane (ret’d), please try to pull it off the Internet and listen.
The road leading to King Obama’s now apparently inevitable, U.S.-led offensive war on Syria continues to be marked by some mighty ridiculous occurrences:
Syria is getting to be an old and boring story, but it still is a deadly come-hither trap in which America may yet be bloodily ensnared by its bipartisan interventionists.
“The views of men can only be known, or guessed at, by their words or actions.” — George Washington, 1799
A major factor in what seems to be the terminal decline of the United States lies in the reality that most Americans appear to have little or no pride in their country or any understanding of its need for an independent, flexible, and largely neutral foreign policy.
