the empire stretches across the land
patriotic, brave and brash
an ego larger than our debts
sooner or later we need to face the world's lash
the nation armed with tanks ships and jets
what is the future?
I do not know
for the kingdom will fly wherever the wind will blow


Not one person in Washington has a backbone. Sure, they can walk and golf but they can't stand for anything. Let's admit it, Obama has no idea if Iraq is good. The Bushes didn't either. And we cannot have bad presidents over and over and over again. It takes its toll, just look at Kieven Rus! A bunch of pushovers ruined the country.

Change needs to come soon. And when I say change I mean change. Not that Hillary or Trump bullshit, I want a guy who can obey the checks and balances but push them to the limit. We need American prestige and morale as high as it was in the 40s! We need a patron saint, a spearhead, a friend in the Oval Office.

America is becoming the world's big brother. We mean good but there is so much happening everywhere that we get overwhelmed and end up just dumping money everywhere (see also: Africa). Sometimes that money lands in spots we either didn't intend for it to or just good places that turn power hungry (see also: Al Qaeda). The result is a mix of crime and confusion as the world enters the online phase and data flies everywhere. My friends, in this Manifesto I will discuss what America can do to stay on top.




First let's discuss some things that need to be corrected immediately.

  • The Department of Defense - It's more then just a silly name. We are lying to ourselves and we need to cut it out and be blunt and honest. It's the department of war. Not defense.
  • Give Congress the power to declare war - We haven't completely and unquestionably won a major war since World War 2. World War 2 was also the last war declared by Congress (see also: in FDR's Pearl Harbor speech he asks congress for a declaration of war). Coincidence? I think not. We must not let one man do the diplomacy for us. Especially with these do-nothing warmongers like Bush.
  • Spank the Media hard. Media bias and minority victimizing has gone up drastically in the past decade or so. We need to allow Freedom of the Press but ban freedom to stir of national unrest. Look at Baltimore. The city was ransacked by thugs and scum over the death of one drug dealer via the power of the Media. It is a sad day when Bruce Jenner is international news and Michael Brown looting a store gets more Media coverage then five-thousand dead in Nepal.



Foreign Policy

Russia

Russia has and will always be a militaristic empire stretching the Northern lands of Europe and Asia. It never experienced the Renaissance and has had a gory history of occupation, subjugation and overall genocide. All of its enemies in history have fallen. Poland-Lithuania, Germany, The Ottoman Empire, The Mongol Horde. None have ever achieved total victory over Russia. We will never be able to remove the threat from Moscow, but we can however isolate, confront and possibly eventually cool down or in this case, heat up relations. Do you not understand me? Because we need to stand by Ukraine and put our foot down with Russia. Sanction the living shit out of them and burn their economy until the Ruble is just another sheet of paper. So far we are doing a good job.

Arab World

Now, let's move on to that shithole they call 'The Middle East'. On one side Afganistan is in Anarchy with Pakistan not far behind, Iran is testing Kerry's patience and challenging us all over Arabia. Iraq is a giant hole we pour money into to try to get the oil to rise up. Turkey is a stubborn Arabian dictatorship that wishes to become European. Turkey frustrates me very, very much. They have killed millions of Armenians, denied it and now they are watching and smiling as thousands of Kurds die to the hands of ISIS. I Everything south of Iraq and Syria is very suspicious but they are the closest to what we can call 'Allies' in the middle east.

You think Bush is the reason for ISIS? Not even close. Saddam Hussein was evil and the real reason for ISIS is eight centuries old. Islam has been divided over A FUCKING HEIR TO THE THRONE THAT HAS BEEN DEAD FOR 750 YEARS! They kill each other every day over it. I say we completely abandon Iraq. Speaking of Iraq they can't fight for shit. We need to backup the Kurds and slap around Turkey. Sure, we get air flight over Turkey but can't we just use bases in the Saudi Kingdom?

Let Iran have nukes. Just don't let them go further then Istanbul. Israel has nukes of its own so why should we care? Negotiating is pathetic. Let them get nukes and then blockade them. Besides North Korea already has nukes and Obama isn't going Bonkers over them. Kerry should know Iran is a very bad idea. He served in Vietnam. Speaking of Korea...

East Asia

RECOGNIZE TAIWAN'S INDEPENDENCE! If we continue down this path China will surpass the United States in power by 2030. A good spot to start improving is protect Taiwan and Japan. China is almost the same as Russia except there is one major difference: China can eventually be eliminated. How you ask? Stop them from fucking us over economically. Wanna know why we have some unemployment? Because CHINA TAKES ALL THE JOBS. I couldn't care less about India by the way.

I'm eventually going to update this some more.



UPDATE!

The Death Penalty

Ancient Mesopotamian law was very strict. An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth. I passionately believe that. First off, the jury should decide the number of appeals and only condemn people to death who have absolute evidence against them. Murderers who know what they are doing MUST DIE. Serial Rapists and Child Molesters must be castrated. People who torture other people MUST DIE. If you hold someone against their will and keep them as a virtual slave YOU MUST FUCKING DIE! I DON'T FUCKING CARE HOW YOU KILL THOSE FUCKS! SHOOT THEM IN THE HEAD IF YOU HAVE TO! No Libtard will ever argue against some of those cases. Oh, and If your under 16 and killed someone YOU FUCKING DIE! The supreme court should just enforce this for the sake of our tax money. ONE EXAMPLE IS THIS FUCK WHO I'VE BEEN KEEPING ALIVE FOR 20 YEARS.


In a few hours I'll update more.

Lawlz you are pathetic. You can't even challenge my points.

Perhaps the Congress and War part is a little extreme but what is the difference between one fool making the decision and fifty fools making the decision? How about both the President and Congress can declare war?

Kellen, don't bother arguing with Lawlz. All they do on the forums anymore is post snide one line remarks, never bothering to contribute something meaningful to the discussion.

On topic, I agree with most of what you said. Except for letting Iran have nukes, very bad idea.

Also, I don't see your problem with Turkey. They may have flaws but they're our only stable and solid ally in the Middle East aside from Israel.

Who declared war in Vietnam? Nobody actually but the president sent the troops. Shyb you are the one who is wrong. Check your sources.

Last war ever declared was Romania in 1942 you dumbass

*edit* The only war Congress disagreed on fighting is the only war total victory wasn'the achieved. You guys are pretty ignorant.

read the constitution before going on political rants. war was never declared in korea or vietnam. the president does not have the ability to declare war, but gets around the rules by calling it not quite war. im pretty sure bush 1 and 2 asked congress to declare war in iraq 1 and 2 and Afghanistan.

I think everyone is missing Kellen's point. He's saying that why Congress officially has the power to declare war, the power is often subverted because the president can use his commander and chief powers to deploy the military into a war like situation without needing any real approval.

No shyb, you go read a book. Everything I said is true. The fact I need to lay it out for you is the sad part:
1. The President is Commander and Chief of the U.S armed forces.
2. The President thus can deploy the military into combat situations without war being declared by Congress.
3. The U.S has been in multiple conflicts without war being officially declared. (I.E: Almost every campaign in the Middle East)

how about the section " military engagements authorized by congress"? or maybe the introduction where it states "However, that passage provides no specific format for what form legislation must have in order to be considered a "declaration of war" nor does the Constitution itself use this term." (talking about congress' war declaring powers in the constitution).

I've been searching through wikipedia for a conflict that the president started but coongress opposed but was powerless to stop and the closest i could find is secret military actions that don't really count since congress obviously can't oppose anything they have no knowledge of.

funny that nearly everything in that article proves my point...

military actions brought on by un resolutions were funded by congress. i assume if congress votes to fund something, they are not too opposed to it.

also look at the war powers act. after vietnam congress passed this to be more specific on what a president can do without congress' approval. still, nearly every time the president sought approval from congress AND kept the action within the bounds of the war powers act.

the only recent action that has been questioned is obama's use of the military in libya's civil war. congress didn't even come close to rebuking him.

yes, potentially the president has the power to start a conflict that congress doesn't want. but congress has the power to stop funding for the conflict and even impeach the president if the situation calls for it.
