Comment On "What The Hell Do You Think They're Fighting For, Anyway?"
Another thought: Since our soldiers are dying over there to preserve out liberties over here, why don’t we ask them which liberties they think Congress should take away from Americans? That would be an interesting poll….
In other wars, American soldiers lost their lives to preserve American liberties. It seems that the Bush administration and the Neo Fascists are trying to sell us on losing our liberties in order to ‘preserve our lives’. Wiretapping, secret searches, no habeas corpus – they think Americans are such cowards that we would give up our basic principles out of fear. I think this bunch of draft-dodgers are still replaying their own cowardice during the Vietnam War – they don’t like the fact that most Americans feel morally superior to them.
