It wouldn’t be my speech. That would undo everything I’ve done in the last 30 years. I don’t fully endorse him for president.
Quote of the Day: Private First Class Bowe Bergdahl walked off his base in Afghanistan three years ago and was promptly captured by the Taliban.
Now America’s last prisoner of war, Bergdahl is at the center of sensitive prisoner exchange talks as the conflict winds down. He also is the focus of a story published today in Rolling Stone that asks:Will the Pentagon leave a man behind?
Here is an excerpt from the letter he wrote his parents a couple days before he went missing:
The future is too good to waste on lies… And life is way too short to care for the damnation of others, as well as to spend it helping fools with their ideas that are wrong. I have seen their ideas and I am ashamed to even be american. The horror of the self-righteous arrogance that they thrive in. It is all revolting. …
In the US army you are cut down for being honest… but if you are a conceited brown nosing sh*t bag you will be allowed to do what ever you want, and you will be handed your higher rank… The system is wrong. I am ashamed to be an american. And the title of US soldier is just the lie of fools. …
I am sorry for everything here… These [Afghan] people need help, yet what they get is the most conceited country in the world telling them that they are nothing and that they are stupid, that they have no idea how to live…. We don’t even care when we hear each other talk about running their children down in the dirt streets with our armored trucks… We make fun of them in front of their faces, and laugh at them for not understanding we are insulting them. …
I am sorry for everything… The horror that is america is disgusting.
I joined the United States Army when I was not as educated as I am today. I joined to protect my country not further its downfall through failed foreign policy and militant intrusion across the globe. I was in High School and I wanted to “Protect and defend the Constitution of the United States of America from enemies both Foreign and Domestic.” But instead I am playing party to the role of the Constitution’s enemies. The arrogance of a government that feels it can disregard the Separations of Powers and the Laws of government restriction set forth by our founding Fathers baffles my mind. They want to control you! They want you to rely on them and feel that without them you are nothing! This is a plea from me, LiberTEA, to not fall into the trap. If a rule, a law, a doctrine is not what you know in your heart is right then FIGHT it. Stand up against the mainstream and swim against the current. For it is better to look like a fool and be the wise man than it is to appear wise but be the fool. I care about you. My followers, my re-bloggers, and my occasional readers. I don’t want to wake up at five everyday and write about the day’s top news just for my own good. I do it because I will make sure when I die or this country goes to hell I have a piece of mind in knowing I did my part no matter how minute. That is why Ron Paul is my hero. It doesn’t matter what the higher ups think of him. He is doing this for you my fellow American. For a cause greater than himself. Just like our founding Fathers did more than 200 years ago. That my friends is how ALL our attitudes should be.
Thanks for following my blog ladies and gents. I do what I can because in the end there is nothing more we can do. To quote an old country song, “You’ve got to stand for something, or you will fall for anything.”
In Liberty and Peace,
Daniel J. Faubion (LiberTEA)

“I Think Ron Paul Just Won Iowa!” Rachel Maddow April 23, 2012 (by MOXNEWSd0tC0M)
Rachael Maddow reporting the truth. And I just posted a Fox News video where Carl Cameron is reporting the truth about Ron Paul. What is going on?! Is the media turning over a new leaf? Ha! Don’t worry, I’m not that naive. But it is refreshing to hear the truth once in a while.
This is a marathon, not a sprint, and the Doctor is winning.
