    What are we fighting for in Iraq? Oil ... er, the freedom of the Iraqi people!
     -- Joe, Rochester, MI     
    I wonder how many Americans that are supporting the Iraq debacle know why this country is there.
     -- Deborah, Oxnard, CA     
    Iraq is for freedom. Any one that does not know that is blind.
     -- warren, olathe     
    Joe & Deborah how soon we forget the "battle cry of the Clintons" and Main stream media. We are shutting down all oil supply, not just to the US but the World! Oh ya and Slick Willy was offered Ben Baby 3 times on a silver patter and he said no! Clintons have done more to tear down the US then they did impove it! North Korea, China. They wouldn't sell warfare technology to the highest bidder now would they!!

    Very simply, find out where people put the responsibility for their lives. If they are not pointing to themselves, then chances are they have been disempowered and merely parrot the party line as justification for their 'sacrifice.' Those defending their liberty, property KNOW for what they fight -- those fighting to TAKE it do not.

    I am struggling to be a socially responsible human being. Socialism is the vision of social abilities to create.
     -- Fredrick William Sillik, Anytown     
    Of course you are struggling! Love, faith, individual sovereignty, inalienable rights and liberty at the laws of nature and of nature's God holds within a vision and reality to create; socialism, the antagonist thereto, is the wolf pack's ability to control and destroy.
