At the bottom of this post is a reference from the Hipster Libertarian blog by Bonnie Kristian which this post gets its inspiration.
Libertarians bug me sometimes. Especially when the cost of war, such as the operation of GITMO, that should not be closed, are expressed in monetary terms. I look at it this way, if the government just did its Constitutional function rather than all of this social experimentation, this post would be irrelevant. A simple installation in the Caribbean would be paid for with more than enough from defunding Planned Parenthood which creates a multi-billion dollar industry of executing unborn citizens against their will everyday. Some people illegally come to the USA to birth their babies and receive for them automatic citizenship and afford the family member life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
The information below in the post on the issue of Human Rights comes from Human Rights First, a well-funded left-wing partner of Open Society Institute founded by George Soros. By the way, Human Rights First is a proponent of open border immigration policy. Their cause doesn’t import any merit on the issue of GITMO considering their equal global assault on the womb through alignment with failed philosophical organizations who believe in the negative eugenics of Margaret Sanger.
Thank you Congress for keeping Obama from closing GITMO. In the light of war, you have kept America safe and legal in its approach to enemy combatants. A drone-less compromise.
