The recognition of individual rights derived from natural law, including the right of revolution. Amazingly, this discussion in the Declaration accounts for a fairly small portion of the document – because late 18th-century Americans readily accepted
Ron Paul talks to LewRockwell about these enemies of freedom.
Neo conservatism does not just cross party lines, it is the party line. Both major US parties share the same foreign policy, which is “humanitarian interventionism,” pushing “democracy” at the barrel of a gun, militarized diplomacy, covert and overt

Invoking the grace-bestowing ghost of Reagan to ward off the hungry packs of Tea Party folks looking to take him down, Rove claimed he was The Gipper's Texas campaign director in 1980. Too bad it is a proven lie.
