…get this evil man out of office.
Today we remember those that have died for this country. We should remember what it is these brave men and women died for. They certainly didn’t die so our government could create and enforce oppression through thousands of new laws nor did they die so we could participate in unjust wars.
The United States has eagerly sent it’s children to die in wars that only end in disaster. We’ll never hear Iraq or Vietnam referred to as the ‘great war.’ Today the military has simply become another business which our president is more than happy to give our money to. Without going to far out there I’ll just say that it’s rather odd that our president, whose family is heavily involved in the oil business, has managed to get us into war over oil while having the price of gasoline double during his tenure. His war against Iraq was initiated by the actions of the son of a close family friend. If these things don’t rattle you a little bit I’m not sure what does.
Though it may be said that the best way to peace is to prepare for war I’d like to think the best way to memorialize the dead is stop adding to their numbers. It may be true that there is much evil in the world, but we must spend our time promoting peace and justice for all as well as the idea that ‘all men are created equal.’
So to all those who have died I say thank you for giving us this great country to live in and helping to give that same thing to others. May our actions in the future honor your service and your life.
