The sustained use of mood altering constituents or behaviors despite adverse dependency or neurological impairment is addiction, and the habits and patterns associated with it are characterized by immediate gratification (short-term reward) coupled with deleterious long-term costs. Republicans have myriad addictions, but chief among them is world domination. It is no surprise then, that the Republican candidate for president, Willard Romney, a man whose religion informs a Mormon president initiates the religion’s world domination, combines the Republican addictions into one catch-all disorder; religious world domination.
Romney has garnered a reputation as an arrogant elitist and control-freak extraordinaire, and he projects that dysfunction on America every time he says, “the 21st century must be an American century” and that it is America’s responsibility to steer the world towards “the path of freedom, peace, and prosperity.” In a foreign policy speech yesterday, Romney outlined his plan to steer the world according to America’s will, and it can be summed up in two words; cowboy diplomacy, especially in dealing with Muslim countries. It is little wonder Romney parroted the Bush neo-con plan for the Middle East that includes interference in Muslim nations’ internal affairs, perpetual war, and foreign policy dictated by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
Romney’s foreign policy problem is rooted in his neo-con advisors from the Bush administration and his pledge of obedience to Benjamin Netanyahu, and it portends multiple wars in the Middle East dependent on direction from Israel’s Prime Minister. Experts on addiction warn that addictive personalities often only need one or two instances of immediate gratification before they are forever bound to the dangerous behavior resulting in long term injury and devastating costs. Bush neo-cons only took America into two wars against Muslim nations, but it was just enough to get them hooked on pre-emptive war and imperialism that has cost America thousands of lives and over $4 trillion dollars with no end in sight. Since Romney is desperate to display foreign policy credibility with conservatives, he enlisted Bush warmongers for advice and gave his ear to Israel’s neo-con leader Netanyahu.
