Mike Gravel (Democrat) was a Senator from Alaska from A.D. 1969 through A.D. 1981. He masterminded the creation of the Alaskan oil pipeline.
I’m surprised by his candor in the following video. At one point, he says, “The US is like a drunkard who charges to war with anyone who might pose a threat.” I wouldn’t think any politician would be willing to say so much truth. But he’s been out of office for 30 years and may never have been as corrupt as the treasonous whores who currently populate Washington DC.
Whatever the explanation, Mr. Gravel makes a strong indictment of the U.S. government and its policies. He makes a lot of sense and clearly describes fundamental problems..
