Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Video and Audio - What are the real motives in Syria? Are they oil? That's doubtful, we get oil from plenty of other sources and it's "just" one commodity. So what else is going on here? Well, let's look at a bit of history. Look at some of the other great empires throughout history: The Romans, The Spanish, and The British mainly. Where are they now? None of them have the status and global dominance they once did. The American Empire will try and keep spreading democracy to all ends of the globe (and the ice world of Hoth) so that it will never have the same fate as the Romans, Spaniards, or Brits.

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – [r]epublicanism is a way of life, folks. It’s not a fad; it’s not a trend. Your forefathers practiced it, but alas, it seems just a bridge too far for the average hoi polloi American sheeple citizen these days. We defer to Mordor on almost everything it seems. As a matter of fact, we defer to it with such regularity, I often wonder why some people protest so mightily about it. What’s the big deal? Check out today’s transcript for the rest…
Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – This hit piece, and that’s what this is, on the foreign policy initiative, or the Institute for Peace that Ron Paul has launched last week is just another one of these thinly-veiled attempts to kneecap anything that does not go along with the standard company line.

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – In the United States, it is illegal and we have banned bombs. You can’t bomb people; that’s illegal. In the United States, terrorism is illegal. You cannot terrorize people. We have acts against this. See the Patriot Act. If justice is going to be done, that means there is law to do the justicing with, and that means that someone therefore has not obeyed the edict from the national legislature.

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Video and Audio - According to Daniel McCarthy's post at the American Conservative, "How a Federal Republic Becomes an Ideological Empire", little r [r]epublicans and localists need to just drop your delusions, face the facts, and become good little nationalists yourselves. Daniel makes many good points about HOW we got to this point, including how the Founders, especially James Madison, could not have predicted many of the things that were going to happen in the country in the coming years and the safeguards they were trying to create to keep us from having a national government, simply were not enough. But his conclusion, that little r [r]epublicans are delusional and Quixotic in their philosophy and must start thinking more nationally and Empirically is something that we believe is impossible.

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Video and Audio - The framers of the Constitution were well aware of what happened to the Roman Republic and then Empire, and they wanted to avoid the same fate and avoid having another Ceaser ruling the United States. George Washington, sometimes called the American Cincinnatus because of his similarity to the Roman dictator Cincinnatus because of their willingness to give up near-absolute power, was the perfect candidate to be the first President because of this. But in the years since, the power has been centralized and we are changing from a Republic to an Empire, much like the people we share the most history with... the Romans.
