You are speculating just as much as I am, except your speculation leads you to resign yourself to embrace the military industrial complex status quo. I am more hopeful that a bipartisan peace coalition can emerge. Paul's popularity among young voters is encouraging to me. As I said previously, they will be voting for sixty years and are unlikely to flipflop on militarism. Maybe it's just wishful thinking, but an Obama supporter is probably the last person on Earth to point fingers at naive wishful thinkers.
