Gunny G: An Excerpt: Some Thoughts On How We Got Here and Where We're Going...

Article By Dr Thomas DiLorenzo...

...In the end of your book, you talk about how things don't seem to change. What do you see as the future of America? Do you see us getting worse before it gets better?

Right now, the people in charge of the government remind us every day that they are the Party of Lincoln. They've stretched Lincoln's philosophy to say that not only should we wage war within our own country ostensibly for democracy, as Lincoln said in the Gettysburg Address, but we should wage war all around the world to force democracy on people, whether they want it or not. Not just in Iraq. 

They're talking about invading the entire Middle East, for starters, to bring democracy there, as though it were any of our business.
That is empire. Any country that has had a big empire like that has always been bankrupted. If that's the road we're going on, I think it's the road that Lincoln started us on. 

Look at what the same government did. Immediately after the War, they commenced a campaign of ethnic genocide against the Plains Indians. That was all part of this plan to have a continental empire.
Now, these people think we need to have a world empire. It's un-American. The Founding Fathers would have fought another revolution over this.
What do you think will happen?

It seems to me that the American public has been dumbed down so much by the government schools that they're just going to go along with this until it either bankrupts us all or we make enough enemies out there that September 11 will seem like child's play. You can't do this without making a lot of enemies in the world. That's my biggest fear — that we won't get rid of these Sons of Lincoln who run the Republican Party.
I agree with Clyde Wilson that America can't be saved or returned to its roots until the Republican Party is destroyed.....

...Do you expect it to ever go back, as the United States?
Seriously, the only way it could, would be secession. If a big chunk of the United States actually seceded from the federal government and pained it a bit and deprived it of a large amount of its revenue. Otherwise, how else could it possibly happen?
Could it possibly return to limited government roots? I can't see how it could possibly happen.
I'm not very optimistic anymore. I was more optimistic when communism fell. I never thought I'd see communism collapse in my lifetime. 

But, I was thinking for a while, well, if it could happen there, we can get rid of our rotten system. But, the Republican Party, which is in power and in control of things, worked out the direction. They, now, no longer oppose the welfare state. In fact, they're expanding it because they want to win the votes from all the people on welfare.

Sons of Lincoln. I keep having to say it.

Thank you so much for taking the time to speak with us.
You're welcome.
