They used that line for Korea, Vietnam, and Iraq where the government got us into messes without withdrawal plans.

    The first thought I had was of the hundreds of thousands of patriots that were lost fighting for freedom in New England, fighting fascism in Europe and the Pacific, fighting communism in Korea and Viet Nam, all in the name of liberty...only to find that we've adopted all of that in "The Land of The free". Restore the Republic and Abolish the Fed.

    Not sure how to rate this or comment on it with stars. 5 stars for the accurate depiction or thumbs down for what it does to truth, perception, liberty, and law. It is a very accurate observation. Hitler, Mao, King George the torturer, and Mr. Obamunist Goodwrench the assassin have all used the same line for the same reason - despotism and tyranny.

    I personally do not understand how a serviceman bombing villages in Afghanistan can possibly believe that he/she is fighting for Freedom. Bombing a 3rd world nation into dust because they are somehow a threat to Freedom in the USA is without question complete and utter LIES. Afghanistan is NO THREAT at all. And another thing I am really getting tired of is calling these executive military orders 'war' -- it is NOT a Constitutionally lawful 'war' -- there has been no declaration of war by the Congress. It is not a war, it is an invasion and an occupation of one of the poorest countries in the world for control of its resources -- PERIOD. And no one knows it better than the Afghan people. If we are at war, then declare a war, and finish it. The #1 superpower in the world can destroy this country in one day, if it really was a threat. Americans who think we are at war with Islamofascism should make their Congressional representatives officially declare war -- otherwise, bring our troops home. They are needed here. As long as Americans remain hypocritical about these wars against Muslim nations, we will reap what we sow -- is this really what Jesus would have us do? Hypocrites, all.

    Wars will end when eniugh people know that wars do not require taxes, Taxes cannot be paid with anythng less than silver coins. No one wants us to pay taxes, they want us to believe we are paying taxes with paper and that is mission impossible. Our Marxist misleaders have no need for money when all of us will risk our kives dor strips of paper that have not promised payment for 48 years.
