Thought for the Day: The March of the Globalists

"Regardless of who ends up with which nomination, it's doubtful that the next president will deviate from the Bushido of the last eight years to any great degree; so why bother working up a sweat?
In his book 'Europe', Norman Davies uses the expression 'bulimia politica' to describe Russia's relentless eastward expansion. To paraphrase him, they ended up with more land than they could ever use and yet they still wanted more.
Whoever wins the White House will be a globalist; and globalisation, that gypsy in leprechaun's clothes, is nothing but "bulimia oeconomica", borderless capital's relentless desire for profit wherever it can find it."


Martin Kelly is one of the most thoughtful of anti-war conservative commentators. Sadly, it's hard to disagree with his assessment.

Clearly Martin Kelly spends far too much time writing tired and self important rubbish and not enough time actually examining the candidates for the presidency.

If he had, he'd realise his statement was absolute bollocks.

Bush is dead and his legacy will be buried with him. America is ready to embrace a new era.

You seem to imply that this is a bad thing.

A "new" era? Which Bomber of the Balkans will it be with - Hitlery, or Mad Mac?

There is not an iota of difference between them when it comes to laying waste to the world in the name of American dominance. Not a shred.

Had Ron Paul polled any better (as opposed to 10%, which is still a bloody miracle, given an organized campaign of boycott and demonisation), then I'd think Americans were interested in something different. Sadly, the only change they want is that in other people's pockets.
