2. America is NOT free because of its soldiers. Heck, we’ve never had a war here since the Civil War. We’ve taken our wars to the “enemies” countries, destroying them and sending them to the stone age. We are free because we believe in democracy and justice for all. Isn’t that the reason “we” escaped England?

America is not free because of its soldiers? I guess other countries just don’t want to deal with New Yorks rat problems, that must be what keeps us safe. Except bin Laden, he attacked us. How’s that going for him by the way? Here is what I know, we got sloppy and we got sucker punched, “9-11”. We woke up and attacked. The following is good old country boy logic, see if you can follow it. Since we went on the offensive “over there” there hasn’t been any attacks “over here”. Country Boy Logic thus dictates that something we are doing is WORKING. And the last part of the statement, “We are free because we believe in democracy and justice for all. Isn’t that the reason “we” escaped England?” Believing in something doesn’t make it true, lots of people believed in the War of the Worlds radio message that we were being attacked by aliens, that didn’t make it any truer. You can believe in democracy and justice for all but when I get all gussied up in my cammies and go to war, I am fighting for those beliefs.

You only believe what you do. If you believe in something, you fight for it.
