    First, a Brief Open Letter To Neo-Cons, Chicken-Hawks, & War Profiteers: FUCK YOU!                                                                     
 Very Sincerely,
Adam G. House (U.S. Army retired OEF Combat Veteran for Ron Paul)


And, Now, To My Fellow Americans,


   No more sugar-coating it. The Emperor has no clothes! We’ve been sold out. The Constitution is in ribbons. The lies of those who have exploited War Fever & Patriotism continue coming to light. The propaganda war machine has convinced the GOP electorate that they must fund both sides of wars in foreign nations. They have convinced Republican voters that a voluntary Army means we soldiers like War and wouldn’t do multiple deployments if we didn’t believe in the mission (whatever it is today). The establishment has succeeded in influencing people to spread ‘democracy’ with the barrel of a gun instead of prosperity with friendly trade. Now, yours truly, has been accused of being infiltrated by the Muslim Brotherhood and was labeled a “Paulistinian” by Republican establishment types at a recent straw poll. With people hanging out at Republican events talking about how we should watch out for the Sharia boogeyman around every corner, I have to wonder what the hell is wrong with these people who used to believe in freedom of religion. Do Christians like it when labeled as wanting to replace the Constitutional Republic with a theocracy? Muslim Americans serve in the United States military just like people from a plethora of various faiths.

Take it from a reformed Christian (now Deist), and OEF veteran; We shouldn’t let the radical religious Christian Right drive American foreign policy towards their apocalyptic visions of Armageddon any more than Iranians should let theirs be driven by the radical religious Muslim extremists. These nut-jobs on both sides want this damn war, which plays right into the hands of Osama bin Laden’s stated strategy of collapsing America by bogging it down in the Middle East. The problem is, the same old chicken-hawk war-profiteering neo-cons who continue to win their propaganda campaign are not the ones catching the bullets for it; That’s what young Patriotic men and women who love their Country enough to want to serve in its’ defense do. And, the American military is damn good at what it does when not hamstrung by the Washington bureaucracy.

 Being stationed in Europe, deploying to Afghanistan, and traveling through many nations, it strikes me how ignorant average Americans are about the rest of the world in comparison with the average folks on the street I’ve met in foreign nations where they have to share many borders. I wish average Americans would pay more attention to our nation’s foreign policy. We have to educate ourselves; especially considering the propaganda machine of the RepubliCrat, mainstream media (which includes Fox News), and international corporate banking establishments. If one soldier is at War in the name of America, then every American is at War by proxy and bares the responsibility of understanding why. That also means not buying the government’s propaganda about the war without question. If Vietnam taught us anything, it should be that the government lies about War. Individual liberty also means individual responsibility. Whether you like it or not as an American citizen, our government is waging War in your name. If you truly care about who your nation kills, how it goes about pursuing peace, why we go to War, and when it’s appropriate to put American soldiers at risk, then don’t give me that establishment talking point bull-shit about Ron Paul having a dangerous foreign policy. Ron Paul is the choice of this combat veteran for very deeply held reasons, not the least of which is that avoiding bloodshed is preferable when possible. If you’ve got to fight a War, you fight it to win it with swift and overwhelming force. War is Hell. War is a Pandora’s box. Proceed with caution.

It does not make sense to believe in American sovereignty and Right to self-determination, but spend over ten years occupying and pretending like we still have a mission in Afghanistan. The soldier in the fight needs a clear mission. If ANYONE reading this can provide that clear mission in terms you’d be comfortable explaining it in the bloody face of a wounded soldier, PLEASE post it in the comments below!

It does not make sense to say that America is a Constitutional Republic, but we want to spread ‘democracy’ (something our Founders opposed) all around the world by wielding wrath and violence. This is a Corporatist approach to government which sacrifices American sovereignty and therefore ultimately the Constitution as the supreme law of the land, in a trade-off for international law and government monopolized foreign trade and other entanglements.

As a veteran of a voluntary Army in wartime, I can’t say that I appreciated being called a “Paulistinian,” as though to suggest I may have terrorist sympathies, or even that all self-identified ‘Palestinians’ somehow do. I’m the veteran; I thought I was the one who was supposed to be paranoid. I certainly think you’re a fucking retard if you actually believe I’ve switched sides, much less for some violent wackos like the Muslim Brotherhood. I’ve brushed off the ‘Paulbot,’ ‘conspiracy theorist,’ and ‘kook’ nonsense; but I take issue with anybody who suggests I’m supporting radical Islamic jihad. The truth is, Combat Veterans for Ron Paul are being painted this way because an article like this one runs contradictory to the narrative the RepubliCrat establishment wants unchallenged. They don’t want veterans to feel comfortable speaking out because people MIGHT actually listen when we say that we’re sick of our brothers and sisters still in the field dying in crooked wealthy politicians’ unnecessary wars. American voters need to wake up and take some responsibility for protecting our service-members (we claim to love for their honorable service) from being sent to serve as cannon-fodder for tyrants. Only we have the power to make it stop. We gave up some of that power by not forcing declarations of War as consistent with the Constitutional checks and balances on Presidential power. Now, our nation is poised to either elect a new warmongering despot or re-elect the one we have.

Ron Paul is the only Presidential candidate in the Republican field who does have a clear, reasonable, and Constitutional approach to foreign policy that is actually also reflective of the wishes and warnings of America’s Founding Fathers. We can’t be so naïve about the rest of the world as to allow the war-profiteering international bankers, blood-sucking neo-cons, and chicken-hawk fools pay for their failure of diplomacy and botched foreign relations with the blood of the soldiers in the fight on the ground. If we elect Obama, Romney, Gingrich, or Santorum in 2012, the bloodshed of America’s patriotic youth continues on foreign soil for no clear mission or defined goal. The consequence of Obama, Romney, Gingrich, or Santorum will be continued world policing and nation-building at the President’s unchecked and unconstitutional discretion. In order to stop everyone we aren’t comfortable with having nuclear energy, we will literally have to police the entire world. Ron Paul is the only candidate even telling us that he wants to restore the Constitution and the original intent of War Powers belonging with Congress and ultimately, We The People. If he’s lying, we’ll hold him accountable; but, Obama and the other Republican candidates have made it clear that they will continue to abuse the Executive authority and assault the Constitution. As someone who took a serious Oath to uphold the Constitution, I think the choice is abundantly clear.

Americans need to know that these other nations around the world have their own internal politics and intermingled conflicts. Our current foreign policy of interjecting ourselves into the internal politics of other sovereign nations (which usually believe in self-determination as well) only serves to build resentments and political movements against us. If these other nations are intent on killing each other anyway, then why would we volunteer to put our service-members in the crossfire? Let them kill each other if they’re going to, but don’t use American soldiers unless it is in self-defense. And, for the record; Israel can take care of herself without us making her dependent on the subsidies and strings that come with those subsidies for her defense and welfare. If Israel and Iran feel froggy towards each other, then let them suffer the consequences of war with each other – not with Americans. Israel is certainly geographically positioned to be more interested in and affected by a nuclear Iran than are we. It’s not our fight. At least, not yet.

Most soldiers I know don’t like or want to kill, and believe it is only acceptable to take life in self-defense. Defending our nation from attack or hunting down those such as carried out the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks is what we have already shown we will volunteer to do. Many of us swore an Oath to the Constitution and will always stand ready to defend it. The point is, sometimes you don’t need to resort to violence to resolve issues. Right now, the warmongering vampires have unchecked control of our foreign policy and the blood-lust of their War Fever has made them blind to the costs of unnecessary prolonged foreign occupations and indiscriminate wars. When you feel entitled to something and don’t have to pay for it yourself, I guess it’s easy to be a chicken-hawk coward. When you make money from people spilling each other’s blood, I guess it’s easy to justify your war profiteering. I guess when you think you can’t win an election without toeing the line, it’s easy to compromise with the progressive neo-cons in power. I guess when you don’t have to see the horrors of War up close and personal on a routine basis, you could get a bit detached from reality in the ivory towers the soldier’s blood purchases. I guess when the American people have bought the lie that what the government does in our name overseas won’t effect us in our homeland, it’s easy to believe you can keep getting away with murder. I guess if you’re ignorant enough to believe the government wouldn’t lie to you, then maybe you should join the military and volunteer for combat duty.

I could go on and on in this ‘rude awakening’ piece, but I just invite every reader NOT to take my word for anything. Do your own homework. Research autodidacticism. Find the facts for yourself. Above all, think for yourself.


 “Let it not be said that we did nothing.” -Ron Paul

Adam G. House served with the famed 2/503rd Infantry Battalion, 173rd Airborne Brigade, including a deployment to the infamous Konar Province of Afghanistan. He is a true patriot who has walked the walk and now talks the talk… And he doesn’t appreciate being called a “Paulistinian” by chicken-hawk cowards who never had the balls to serve, yet advocate preemptive war at the cost of others.

    Adam, my friend, thank you for letting me know about your site. I have greatly missed our discussions, and am quite pleased to once again share ideas. Let me start with a quote.

    “Any country whose people conduct themselves well can count upon our hearty friendship. If a nation shows that it knows how to act with reasonable efficiency and decency in social and political matters, if it keeps order and pays its obligations, it need fear no interference from the United States. Chronic wrongdoing, or an impotence which results in a general loosening of the ties of civilized society, may in America, as elsewhere, ultimately require intervention by some civilized nation, and in the Western Hemisphere the adherence of the United States to the Monroe Doctrine may force the United States, however reluctantly, in flagrant cases of such wrongdoing or impotence, to the exercise of an international police power.” T. Roosevelt

    Has so much changed that we would ignore Roosevelt’s words? Yes, and no. Our government has certainly changed, and not for the better, to be sure. And the directions our military has been lead are far less advantageous than ever before. From idiotic “RoC” and “RoE” on the battlefield, to putting American military at risk by continually cutting and snipping away, to expecting that same military to do more with less, we are no longer that great military superpower that discourages other nations from practicing evil within their borders. Many believed the end of the Cold War was the end of needing a superior military, when nothing could be further from the truth.

    You know that I hate war as much as any man or woman who has faced the enemy up close and personal. But I must say, even though I like many of Ron Paul’s concepts, and appreciate his willingness to adhere to the Constitution, I view his foreign policy as being similar to that of Neville Chamberlain. From the times of Jefferson, we have had to deal with interruptions in the MidEast by Muslims following their ideology, (NO, I won’t call it a “religion”, because it isn’t. Religion is only one part of the complete facade that is Islam.) and nothing has changed much since then. Except that they are even more dedicated to world domination, larger in number, and more deadly thanks to better communications and greatly improved weaponry. That is why I am so concerned about the threat they present. Their more open willingness and vocalization of plans to destroy Israel, their ability to infiltrate our porous Southern border undetected by working with the Cartels, and the very fact that out of just over a billion Muslims, of which some 15% are now considered radical, concern me greatly.

    Granted, we shouldn’t be on the ground in Afghanistan much longer, but we also need to make a timely withdrawal since we are there already, and not leave millions upon millions of dollars of our logistical supplies behind for the enemy to use against us later. And we need to remain staged to protect our other assets in the region, not completely withdraw ALL our military from foreign positions. The current administration is further forcing us to outflank ourselves while weakening the one thing that our enemies respect – military strength. Why else would they all have become so openly brazen in the last 3 years? The BDM (Brain Dead Media) and the administration touted “Arab Spring” as a good thing, but in reality it is ending up with our outspoken enemies taking over those governments. So I ask you, as a fellow combat veteran, is now the right time to pull ALL our military back to our shores as those who have sworn our destruction gain more ground and gather more forces to use against us? Or do we take the path of Jefferson or Teddy Roosevelt in dealing with them? The survival of our nation may depend on it.

    First of all, thank you for supporting Ron Paul and spreading the message of peace and prosperity.
    Now, the beef I have with your post. FIrst, why call yourself a “reformed” Christian, as if someone who is a christian is fundamentally flawed and needs improvement? I would say that is true of all human beings, and I, as a Christian, believe that I must LOVE everyone including my enemies, turn the other cheek when I’m wronged, and not even take revenge (Romans 12:19). Even if it weren’t your intention, I feel lumped in with the “radical religious Christian Right” you describe, despite my agreeing with you. Your fight isn’t with Christianity (obviously, since Ron Paul himself is a Christian)… it’s with people who are deceivers and those who have been deceived and DO NOT I repeat DO NOT represent me (or Ron Paul)!

    I commend you sir and your compatriots for your spirit and mental integrity; for honoring your reason and your experience and our founding fathers’ philosophy and sacrifice. I commend you for speaking out in the name of reason for every mans spiritual freedom from the tentacles of religious oppression regardless of its source.

  7. Nate Kelly says:

    Thanks for all your great thoughts and well spoken points you put out here. I am also spreading the word and trying to wake people up to what is really going on in the military and what our government is really doing. I am constantly met with hostility and told i am un-american and that i am a coward. It really chaps my ass to know that i wasa used as a pawn to help NWO take over and to know that since i was enlisted and fought for “FREEDOM” I and other have only lost freedoms on america. So once again thanks so much for your posts and i look forward to the next eye opener i can share with others.

    Thanks for all your great posts and information you provide. I enjoy hearing from other airborne infantryman that we are being used to fight false wars and die for profit. I have tried like you to educate others on these matters and am always met with hostility and called a coward or unamerican. It is a slap in the face to open my eyes to the true reality of my country and what I feel I fought for.

    Thanks Adam! Excellent essay! Don’t give up your faith in the Lord Jesus because a bunch of Chickenhawk idiots have co-opted His Churches. There are still thousands of us who have not bowed the knee to Baal. God bless you brother.

    W.e are at war in Afganistan because there was talk of cutting defense spending since the collapse of the USSR . The military Industrial complex asked the CIA where would be a good place to fight and show the nation they need our WMD . Hey through in that the Anti Domestic Terrorist Act needs some more teeth , like warrantless survilence and warrantless searches to infiltrate those militias that have all the judges , sherrif , major , and chief of police in them . Pull a warrant and they will ALL know their group is being watched . Truth be told , no one would have run to form these militias if tanks weren’t crashing in the walls of a certain church in Waco .
    The CIA was given power by Congress to make money secretly so no one would know their true budget . VietNam had plane loads of equipment flown in and planeloads of herion flying out . So Nixon that GREAT MAN OF PEACE shut down the war in Vietnam and immediately the CIA said what and Nicragua and Columbia , seen some Russian tanks there ? I think it was the cocaine they were looking at . Gee , why Afganistan ? Think we couldn’t have paid some tribesmen to look after that oil pipeline they wanted to install there ? But , what about all those poppies and hash ? The CIA scratches the military industrials back and everyone is back in business as usual . So it cost some lives , they’re cheap aren’t they ? Haven’t those rich bastards posted their 10 commandments on public land in Georgia ? You know , the Georgia Guidestones that only allow for 500 million souls to live on their planet .
    Ron Paul ? Got the Paul right but the wrong dude . His name use to be Saul and he is the one that took America off of the ROCK ( Laws and commandments ) and gave us a useless foundation of shifting sand .
    To call yourself an American is to admit that you failed our Messiahs test . For our Creator gave dominion of everything that creeps on the ground , swims in the sea , and flies in the air to Adam and Adam bowed to the devil and gave the rule to him . Did the devil not offer the glory of ALL the great kingdoms to our Messiah if HE would but bow to him ? They were the devils to give . Our Messiah said , ” THIS IS NOT MY KINGDOM , if it were legions of angels would come and you could NOT take ME . ” My Messiah took me out of this world and HE said if I was of this world the wprld would love me for it loves its own . To admit you are an American is to admit that you are still of this world and your ruler and king is the devil , for this is his ONLY kingdom , the earth . Don’t you like how he rules his kingdom ?
    If you don’t like it switch sides and fight the GOOD FIGHT for the kingdom to come . To turn the childrens hearts back to their parents and the parents hearts back to their children . To help guide us all to our Holy REDEEMERS feet . To prepare us all for that great and terrible tribulation that is upon us . The likes of which this world has never seen nor ever will again . Like a woman in labor or travail . The pains getting harder and harder and closer together and closer together . One disaster after another . Trust in your smith and wessons ? What happens when the bullets are all gone . Oh , that instead you had trusted in our LAMB .

  11. I am so grateful that I ran across this site and so proud to have read your warning. I could not agree with you more or support you more. Thanks for writing this, I will be sharing it to my facebook group!

    Thank you for that great essay Adam. As a peacetime veteran (who’s very pissed off about the direction of our country the last 11 years), I proudly salute your grit, determination and common sense. If and when the war machine turns on the American public and orders the troops to fire on your fellow Americans (martial law in response to economic collapse or opposition to another bullshit war in Iran maybe), I hope and pray there are guys like you who will support the Constitution.

    EXCELLENT well said! Thank you! You were able to express yourself very clearly, Send to every newsletter that is out there. A true veterans perspective. LOVE it. DR, RON PAUL for President 2012!

  14. Rita Davis says:

    I like the title to this article…it will bring in the “haters” to read it! I cannot understand why people buy into the “boggie-man” scare tactic. And that POS Santorum keeps saying it..”muslim jihadists” are coming to get us…they are now in south america..they are in asia…when will he say they are ready to [parachute] drop from the sky..?
    I salute you Adam!

  15. Adam G. House Wow what a posting, and a bright spotlight. thank you
    Best regards

  16. Hearts&Mines says:

    Could not have been said more eloquently from the lips of a person who’s character would be impossible to try to cut down. I was probably down the road from you somewhere over there. I was at the K.G pass in Paktia in 07-08 and would always run into you 173 guys re supplying at Gardez or Sharana. With all the carnage and straight up EVIL that we witnessed I will back you up and say…it wasn’t worth it. With my leg messed up and my buddies in the ground…it wasn’t worth it. With non combatants killed by our mortar rounds…wasn’t worth it. We gotta make this war end. You, me, and the other “witnesses”. hearts and mines out.

  17. Clarence says:

    Everyone wants freedom to pursue their happiness but they want to deny others the freedom to pursue their happiness. If everyone agreed that everyone has the freedom to pursue their happiness in such a way as not to deny others the freedom to pursue their happiness there would be very little need for conflict. Ron Paul said freedom brings people together therefor he is crucified by the intolerant. Under freedom we use persuasion to win people to our way of thinking not force.

  18. TheGoodTwin says:

    Hey, you might want to reconsider the title of this article. I thought I was going to read an article that actually showed that the muslim brotherhood infiltrated “paulistinians”, and we don’t want to be giving off that impression if it isn’t true. Headlines can be very misleading, especially to those who don’t take the time to read the article.

  19. I don’t know when, if ever, I’ve read anything that I agree with more than this. I am rarely at a loss for words, but this piece has said it all and said it so well that it leaves nothing to be said! OUTSTANDING!

  20. Keep up the fight! I get frustrated daily and at times think to myself that maybe we deserve what is given to us by the establishment if the majority is so easily duped by such an obvious propaganda machine. How Americans know nothing of what led to the rise of militant Muslim extremist after we booted Mossadegh, the last democratically elected prime minister in the Arab world and brought the oppressive Shah into power for 20 years. How Ayatollah Khomeini easily convinced the people that he was at least better then the oil stealing brits and Americans in the form of AIOC and BP and that we should pay in the form of blood and holy war. No. We shall still entertain the notion that we are hated because we are free and we should spread democracy through warfare and the death of our countries finest. But then I wake up, drink a cup of coffee, and start the fight all over again, we cannot give up this fight, or the blood that our brothers,sons, fathers, and even mothers have spilled over the last 240 years has been in vein.
