Debate Thoughts

Filed under: — Al @ 4:42 pm

I watched the entire debate last night and rated it for, then watched about 3 hours of post debate coverage on TV. NO ONE brought up McCain’s plan to create a “league of democracies.” He has brought this up as far back as May 2007, and brought it up again during last night’s debate. This is an extremely radical idea, and must be discussed. Would this plan include the democracy of Venezuela, which McCain and even Obama claim is a “rogue state?” And by the way, isn’t “rogue state” a reserved word for a nation that does not participate in the Non Proliferation Treaty? McCain’s “league of democracies” should bring up tons of questions…Who would it include and not include?…Do you care about it’s impact on the UN and how badly it would undermine the UN’s purpose?…Hamas was democratically elected, would Palestine be included? This idea is so radical and reckless it can’t be allowed to go on without question. I feel so-so about Obama on foreign policy, but compared to McCain Obama is a saint. Please, NBC, CBS, ABC, CNN, NPR, PBS, SOMEONE, investigate this and explain to the American voter what McCain’s plan is.

Just a reminder to McCain and any “league of democracy” fan out there: the U.N. is there to prevent war and get countries who disagree with each other to engage peacefully in one place. Do you really think you can top that? Just admit it, this is about expanding your empire.
