Very few politicians defend classical American values anymore.  Few even understand liberty, and most are cowardly lion losers who just like to tout it.  This is the reality.  I could cloak it this way and that, but I don't want to.  I see a bunch of cowards.  I see a group of folks who have no backbone.  Republican or Democrat, what's the damn difference when it comes to addressing nothing that educated folk understand as the challenge of our age?  Environmental destruction, which better put means letting your own home rot and not maintain upkeep, which what responsible home owner would do?  Spying on everyone in world, because it might prevent some future catastrophe?  Sounds like control issues and sociopathism to me.

We need to get a grip.  Our age is unraveling into a paranoid dystopia, when in reality maintaining allegiance to the values we've always held would provide us strength.  Here, you will always hear that strength, no surrender.  All over the world, you can see repression and extortion, sometimes by our so-called allies like Egypt, Israel, etc., sometimes by our not so-called allies like Russia and Iran.  In the end, we don't care, all these repressive authoritarian parties have no likeness to us, and we'll deal with them as they are:  no favoritism, no more money or aid, and always advocating universal human rights.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
