The Conspicuously Quiet Anti-War Movement

Recently, I've criticized (here and here) certain elements within the Tea Party movement as "teocons" for speaking the language of fiscal conservatism, while unabashedly pursuing an agenda of growing America's military and police state. Now I want to highlight an article by Bob Morris, a colleague of mine at the California Independent Voter Network, who takes a look at the lack of earnestness in some segments of the anti-war movement, which was at its height under Bush, and suddenly became conspicuously quiet after President Obama took office, despite his seamless continuation of Bush era foreign policy.

It's funny really. The fake Tea Party guys act like they want less government, but all they really care about is continuing the wars. The fake anti-war guys act like they want fewer wars, but all they really care about is more government. Anyway, check out Morris' article here.
