Keep Focus, Stop The War

We can't fight on all fronts at once.
The Economy is a runaway train.
Corruption is commonplace.
Religious zealots threaten us with Theocracy.
Racial tensions are being fueled from every direction.
And through it all we are pissing in the only place we can all call home, our planet.
Hmmm, I guess I've grown up a little since leaving the Republican party? It certainly isn't because I became a Democrat. I haven't.
We can't fight all of these battles at the same time. There is one battle we can fight, ending the war.
Why pick the war? After all, a lot of folks are facing the loss of their home or job.
We need to end the war to save our homes, jobs, security, economy and last but most important, our Constitution.
I've been away for a while, so you may be in need of some of my favorite soul food.

Once again from the past, the wisdom of the Founders speaks to us today.
"Of all the enemies to public liberty, war is, perhaps, the most to be dreaded because it comprises and develops the germ of every other. War is the parent of armies; from these proceed debts and taxes. And armies, and debts, and taxes are the known instruments for bringing the many under the domination of the few. In war, too, the discretionary power of the Executive is extended. Its influence in dealing out offices, honors, and emoluments is multiplied; and all the means of seducing the minds, are added to those of subduing the force of the people. The same malignant aspect in republicanism may be traced in the inequality of fortunes, and the opportunities of fraud, growing out of a state of war and in the degeneracy of manners and morals, engendered by both. No nation could preserve its freedom in the midst of continual warfare."
- James Madison, April 20, 1795

Just think, the Three Stooges buying the presidency think the Founders couldn't have foreseen the problems we face today.
Forcing the crooks in DC to end the war will be a major step in getting our Republic back. It hits the Corrupt where it hurts most, their wallets.
And by the way, ending the war is the right thing to do, in case we forgot.

Fighting evil is a moral obligation. Fighting Corruption is a civil obligation. Fighting tyranny is a political obligation. Fighting all three is the war to save Humanity.
