WHAT THE HELL has the WELFARE INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX done ?
Oh, I don't know, keep the citizenry alive? Would you have it that we're a nation of homeless and disenfranchised people? I bet you're the type
that would deny a homeless person a hot meal, aren't you.
You judge a nation by the poorest among them, not the wealthiest. I suppose it never occurred to you that Cheney's fanaticism towards the MIC is
because he personally benefits from the relationship? Why wouldn't he be the MIC biggest lobbyist? He makes money from government spending for
Christ's sake! We have a fox in the henhouse, all camped out, spitfire roasting some hens and laughing at you.
A better question would be, why do you hate your fellow Americans? Are your pro-military industrial views based upon some personal benefit? Are you
biased before the argument even begins? Or do you only see a select few as "actual Americans" and everyone else is just a freeloader, despite their
constitutional rights, which on your skewed perspective are just a technicality to be overlooked, if not completely ignored.
As for Eisenhower's statement in regards to requiring a strong military deterrent, this does not equate having a MIC that answers to no one and that
oversteps it's authority, abuses it's power, and is placed before the welfare of any living American citizen.
The American people are the foundation for ALL industries or organizations here. The well being of the people MUST take precedence before anything
else, or what exactly are we fighting for? The right to die for our nation, which we love so much, but cares not at all for us?
You're as Anti-American as it gets. You're a pro-corporatist / industrialist. If you don't love your fellow American indiscriminately and place
their well-being in the highest level of importance, you are simply just a tool and mouthpiece of an industrial complex that feeds it's own and cares
nothing for the people from which it's own spring from.
In short, if you don't care about the well being of the common American Man and Woman, you sir are a traitor of the highest order, and should be led
to the gallows because of your greed and willingness to serve industry while undermining the interests of the citizenry, all under the guise of
Let me re-iterate.
You are a traitor to the American people
