Bravo North Carolina! Congrats to Walter Jones on Primary Win

walter jones 9423757882_c8751bbb54_z-554x380Bravo North Carolina! Rep. Walter Jones survived a Republican primary challenger who was heavily bankrolled by the Emergency Committee for Israel and other groups and endorsed by Sarah Palin. Jones is one of the most honorable Republicans on foreign policy and has been tight with Ron Paul for years. After initially supporting the Iraq War and launching the hubbub over “freedom fries,” Jones courageously reversed position and became one of its most outspoken critics.  And he has stoutly spoken out against going to war against Iran, Syria, and other “targets of the week” of Washington laptop bombardiers.

North Carolinians did themselves proud and sent a message to members of Congress who may be looking for the gonads not to join the next militaristic stampede.  Jim Antle did a series of fine articles for the American Conservative on the conservative case for Jones, and has also been a vigorous supporter of the congressman.

    Of course, I have to wonder what major defense contractors are in his district, that being a frequent driving force on that “let’s go kill some of Those People” mob mentality. If I’m not mistaken, there’s a recent poll out there showing a growing interest in minding our own business among We The People.

    That poll result was encouraging – as was the backlash against Obama’s proposal to bomb hell out of Syria.

    I hope the “lesson” doesn’t fade from Americans’ minds….

      I’m going to go for “one generation,” that being the distance between the end of Vietnam and the beginning of Gulf War I, before a majority of Americans redevelop a taste for full scale war. Low-level war is here to stay, unless or until there’s a complete collapse of the American dotgov.

        You might be right. If only George W. Bush could be elected for a third term…
