Tulsi Gabbard Thoughts
I do not believe that the US can any longer afford to start and have wars across the globe. I think that the enormous debt and death and hate that the wars and political actions have caused is crazy. There are so many current and future problems to solve .It is undeniable that the environment is suffering in big and profound ways because of the way we choose to live. the factory farms, the never ending wars that make a few rich and the rest of us poor or dead, the oil lobby and lobbyist in general that will eventually destroy democracy. The overwhelming waste in the system. I am quite sure if there are future generations they will think us quite a selfish generation. I notice that there is a candidate that the Republicans do not like the DNC seems to really dislike and the Media is doing everything they can to dismiss. I normally don’t pay attention but now they have my interest. Recently there have been a few articles that still paint a misleadingly negative picture but if you read between the lines it seems like this is a women who went to war did her homework and discovered things that the war machine do not want you to know. It also seems she is brave enough to talk about it and build a platform about it. I would like to see what other people think.
Last Two (what)?
First, I am a Tulsi fan and helped her make the 130K unique donators requirement for the Sept’s DNC debate stage. But she needs to get 2% or better in four national polls, of which she has only one so far. IMO, we need to keep her voice, her emphasis on this stop-the-(illegal)-regime-change-wars topic in the political arena as long as possible. So, if you are reading this, please ask your network/tribe to help lift her poll numbers where they can and/or contribute to her campaign. Thanks for considering.
More specifically to your question, Last Two, I agree with your assessment about Tulsi doing her homework, has perspective(s) that the MIC wants to suppress, and is definitely brave to keep sticking her neck out about it all.
Let’s be frank, the MIC used GWB’s administration to get Iraq back into our hegemony system and used BHO’s to squash Libya’s plan to create a gold-backed currency for their oil trading, etc. The USA needs Venezuelan oil and Iranian oil and nat gas to be priced in USD too and have those readily available to keep resources and products flowing to USA. “The American way of life is not negotiable,” as GHWB and Chaney, darlings of the MIC, have said.
Really clueful, bright, seemly moral people I know will either immediately change the subject or repeat the MIC’s talking points, because perhaps they know deep inside that it is in their best interest to keep our status quo imperialism in motion.
Tulsi probably has no chance to win the Democratic nomination, unfortunately, but let’s help keep her in the hunt for as long as possible.

The Bad Orange Man would be wise to find ways to subtly boost Gabbard. First, that would help him fragment and defeat the D’s In 2020. Second, it might help him suppress the influence of the bipartisan War Party in his own Administration(s).
And here’s another reason she may not get much traction:
Think of it this way. The smart guys at the Democratic National Committee were trying to structure a quasi-market out of candidate popularity, a foolproof system to cause the most meritorious candidates with the best ideas with the broadest appeal to rise to the top. Instead the system blew up and fell apart, leaving a pack of wackadoodles dancing to socialist teen-pop in the hope of getting one-dollar bills thrown at them by a Twitter mob.
I’m not above switching my party affiliation to vote for her in the NH primary. 😂

The Washington Post, which is wholly owned by a CIA contractor who is reportedly working to control the underlying infrastructure of the global economy, has published a shockingly deceitful smear piece about Democratic presidential candidate Tulsi Gabbard in the wake of her criticisms of her opponent Kamala Harris’ prosecutorial record during the last Democratic debate.
The article’s author, Josh Rogin, [a neoconservative] has been a cheerleader for US regime change interventionism in Syria since the very beginning of the conflict in that nation. It is unsurprising, then, that he reacted with orgasmic exuberance when Harris retaliated against Gabbard’s devastating attack by smearing the Hawaii congresswoman as an “Assad apologist”, since Gabbard has been arguably the most consistent and high-profile critic of Rogin’s pet war agenda. His article, titled “Tulsi Gabbard’s Syria record shows why she can’t be president”, is one of the most dishonest articles that I have ever read in a mainstream publication…
Again, claiming that Gabbard has done anything at all to “defend Assad” is a lie. If anything Gabbard has been too uncritical of establishment war propaganda narratives, calling Assad “a brutal dictator” who has “used chemical weapons and other weapons against his people.” Gabbard’s sole arguments on the matter have been in opposition to US military interventionism and skepticism of narratives used to support such interventionism, which only an idiot would object to in a post-Iraq invasion world.
I have become a Gabbard supporter also.
A few $$ a month seems worth it to get the topic of the absurdity of perpetual war into the discussion.
Thank you for the responses. I understand the dollar being the reserve currency and the oil issues. Frankly I think Trumps deal making may be doing more to kill the dollar as the reserve currency then bringing our troops home will.
I too want the anti war message in the debate as long as possible. And we have donated to try to help the 130000 which she has now made. We are also pushing her message on the libertarian and liberal sites. I| also see that Bernie has picked up the military spending torch so she may have had an impact already.
The media continues to bash and dismiss her and for that reason alone I think we should try to keep her in the debates. The war machine is a multi trillion dollar business that is making Americans poor and hated and dead . The fact that she was a medic and saw it first hand did her homework and said why are we helping al Qaeda and now isis on several fronts and now they are many times stronger than 9-11 which is why she signed up in the first place. Its a cluster but I think our government is making it intentionally confusing.

Quite frankly, I find Tulsi to be the only candidate talking about central issues while others dance around the periphery of du-jour outrage issues that the bread and circuses crowds enjoy. As you point out, any candidate that is polling so low but getting such a high profile of negative press must scare the four-letter excrement(!) out of the establishment. Hopefully she will gain from it like Trump did when the media mindlessly raised the profile of that particular fringe candidate.
I’m agnostic as to party but I will vote for her in a heartbeat if given the opportunity.
I am impressed with her unflappable style and I agree with you Mark that she has caught the attention of the deep state Warmageddon types. She would be very difficult for them to control so I expect all stops will be pulled out to keep her away from seeking the oval office.
Although a registered Republican ..I will vote in the Democratic Primary and as of Today will vote for Gabbard.
