#1 The Democrats no longer support democracy. They are demanding 110% power belongs to them, the citizen has no voice.

#4 Don't think the Left is going to enjoy the Franco/Pinochet era. Old warning - be careful what you ask for, you might get it.

#7 Well Max, you Cromwell-wannabe, remember that they dug him up just so they could kill him officially.

#8 From Wikipedia:

Max Boot (born September 12, 1969) is an American author, consultant, editorialist, lecturer, and military historian.[1] He worked as a writer and editor for Christian Science Monitor and then for The Wall Street Journal in the 1990s. He is now Jeane J. Kirkpatrick Senior Fellow in National Security Studies at the Council on Foreign Relations. He has written for numerous publications such as The Weekly Standard, The Los Angeles Times, and The New York Times, and he has also authored books of military history.[2] Boot's most recent book, 2018's The Road Not Taken, is a biography of Edward Lansdale.

Boot was born in Moscow.[3] His parents, both Russian Jews, later emigrated from the Soviet Union to Los Angeles, where he was raised.[3][4] Boot was educated at the University of California, Berkeley (BA, History, 1991) and Yale University (MA, Diplomatic History, 1992).[1] He started his journalistic career writing columns for the Berkeley student newspaper The Daily Californian.[5] He later stated that he believes he is the only conservative writer in that paper's history.[5] Boot and his family currently live in the New York area.[1]

Prolific and illustrious career, McCain advisor for his presidential campaign, anti-Trumper. That last is clearly undermining the clear thinking that enabled all he’s done before.

"Yet another reason I miss Obama. I don’t recall so much open anti-Semitism and racism online when he was in office. …"

#10 Two years after he died, Oliver Cromwell's coup was overturned by the English, who dug up his corpse and beheaded it. The head was on display in the UK for over 20 years. As for some of the others who ousted the King of England: "After their trial, conviction and sentencing, twelve surviving regicides (those who had participated in the trial and execution of Charles I) were hanged, drawn and quartered" -- basically slowly dissected while alive.

Be careful what you call for...

It was there...he just didn't look...or he's just full of crap.

Besides, a lot of the Anti-Semitism was expressed through actual policy.

The thing I notice about Boot and his fellow talkers is that words seem to count for more than deeds.

#14 I read The Savage Wars of Peace: Small Wars and the Rise of American Power and thought it was pretty good. That was before Sept 11 though.

#15 People like Boot do not understand that their desired means of removing Trump will cause things to spin out of control.
