Balderdash. Last memorial day I was approached by a lady at the entrance to a store here to buy a poppy and support the troops. I refused. She was horrified, and said so, and tried to shame me into doing it.
I asked her to step aside and I explained that we have an all volunteer military, and if they had a clue they would just STOP VOLUNTEERING. Once you know the truth about how these wars are fomented by the power elite for their own purposes, why would you take a chance on losing your life for them?
Now I can hear all the neo-cons, Republicans, Libertarians, and others screaming to high heaven against me and other freedom loving Americans who have been pointing this out for years. But some very prominent Americans have been saying this far longer than I have. Here is Ron Pauls version from December of 2009.
Here is the president of the Italian Supreme Court with his opinion on who is responsible for the terrorist events in Europe.
And here is a real tribute to our troops that is not tainted by the foul media.
And if you have read this far, I challenge anyone to refute what is set forth in the following article.
