The Way It Is, But Not the Way It Should Be

The GOP Seeks Out Jewish Donors

So we enter the frenetic race for the next Presidential election, and the GOP'ers are off and running. There is a land rush of sorts, except the coveted prize is not land but influence and money. They are off running to get some of Adelson's money, and all they have to do is proclaim their love of Israel and their commitment to Israel in the foreign policy arena. To gain Adelson's support, they need to vilify the impending nuclear deal with Iran, saying that Obama gave up too much. Even though reason demands the obvious point that Russia, China, Britain, France, and Germany would never have given into questionable terms just because Obama wanted to do this or that, given the current relationship between the US and its "partners".

Many of the same GOP mouth breathers begging for Adelson's money are the ones that signed the open letter to Iran, claiming that the deal would never last, showing their ignorance of international law and slapping their own president and state department in the face, while aligning their position with the Iranian hardliners, who also do not want a nuclear deal. All of this done in the service of Netanyahu, who has actually gone out of his way to embarrass our leaders (not just Obama, Biden, Kerry et al.). Even if you do not like Obama's current position, he is our president. The speech he gave to our Congress, while trying to score political points at home, would have made Jefferson, and Adams, and Washington roll over in their grave. When an American politician gets chastised because he did not clap enthusiastically enough, then people need to start asking questions, like what the hell is going on?

So is this the way it is supposed to be? In the "greatest" democracy in the solar system? That a candidate's chances of winning depend on seeking funds from one demographic, or that the candidates are completely subservient to a foreign lobby called AIPAC?

America First! America first, second, third, .... and last! And if your actions say otherwise, then your loyalty to this nation is questionable.
