I've bared all so to speak on this blog, but today is a day that I can't hold back from letting my politics and beliefs show.
If you ask anyone that knows me they know that I am a great lover of this country, I stay optimistic about it. I have actively participated in politics and government for a large part of my life. I am believe that to be a good citizen you have to.
I believe that our young people, most of them from the poorer classes serving in the Army to be able to pay for college or medical care, shouldn't be paying the ultimate price in another country's civil war.
I believe it's wrong.
I believe we need to make this country worth fighting for before go across the world spreading our doctrine.
I believe we have become the new Roman Empire.
Disagree? That's fine, I won't get rid of your comments because it's your right [Amendment I: Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.]
Below are some reminders about loving your country.
You're not to be so blind with patriotism that you can't face reality. Wrong is wrong, no matter who does it or says it.
Malcolm X (1925 - 1965)
Patriotism is the last refuge of a scoundrel.Please visit the Iraq Page to remember those who have lost their live in the Iraq War from 2003 to 2007.
Samuel Johnson (1709 - 1784)
My country, right or wrong. In one sense I say so too. My country; and my country is the great American Republic. My country, right or wrong; if right, to be kept right; and if wrong, to be set right.
Carl Schurz (1829–1906)
