I often go to this site, SF Debris for great reviews on Sci-Fi movies and TV. Funny and enjoyable. I highly recommend that you check him out. Since this topic is political in nature, I will note that he seems to have a libertarian slant and he is willing to knock heads on both sides if he sees bullshit. This is not a knock against him, in fact, I like him for that reason.
He recently did a review on Star Trek: DS9’s Homefront and Paradise Lost. They are two great shows on my favorite Star Trek series. I do, however, need to disagree with him slightly. The Republican Party of America has been struggling with this topic too, with the isolationist libertarian wing and the hawkish conservatives clashing. I don’t have all the answers, but while watching his review a thought came to me:
What’s with the false choice of either this or something else? I say that as long as we have a civilian representative government, governed by law (a republic) and not by the mob (a democracy), then we will always be good. As long as we have Free Speech and the Right To Bear Arms (the 2nd Amendment protects the Bill Of Rights, amirite?), then I believe that things will work out for the best in the end. As long as the government fears and respects the citizenship, we will not have a problem.
Again, I don’t have all the answers. I’m just a commentator with an opinion.
Well, see ya’ later!
