Considering my generation is the generation that's been at war longer than any generation in American history and the fact that we seem to be ramping up for more empire expansion and war I find it appropriate to share some of the horrors our choices cause those who are brave enough to sign on the dotted line.

Henry Lumley



Henry Lumley, poor guy. Toughest bastard in history, while him and his plane were on fire he was able to land his plane and escape alive.







U.S. Army veteran Jerral Hancock drove over an IED in Iraq in 2007. Just 21, he lost his arm and the use of both legs, and now suffers from post-traumatic stress disorder. But his injuries have changed more than just his own life. His mother and stepfather take care of him full time, and his two children, 9 and 6, struggle with their new life.






On Easter Sunday, US army specialist Brendan Marrocco lost all four limbs in combat in Iraq. Glenn Osten Anderson visits Marrocco at Walter Reed Army Medical Centre as he recovers from his injuries and learns to use his prosthetic arms and legs


Just thought I would share while you're thinking about how oppressed you are the government or when you're taking a knee during the national anthem and essentially spitting in the face of these people.

Most of these guys were just looking to do something more with their lives or for an opportunity to get money for college or something along those lines.

Keep these videos and these stories in the back of your mind when your at the voting booth. Remember your choices matter.

War is pure socialism and a complete waste of money.

If everyone chooses to stop fighting the elite will lose their power and there will be no more war.

We have the power to choose.

i was with you right up until here. war is a horror and we take advantage of our bravest citizens with pointless wars. but one has nothing to do with the other. you're undercutting the whole point of your thread, which seems to be 'vote for people who don't get us sucked into wars', no?

Thats right, drag the victims of war (soldiers are victims too) in front of everyone, play the guilt card so we puff up with pride and anger at the enemy that did this. That enemy is not the people whose countries we invaded or the soldiers, but the people that run this country into the ground by coercing everyone to fight with slogans, flags and Nationalism, for their gain.

I know, huh? What if they gave a war and nobody showed up to fight?

Generalizations are rarely correct. There is usually a defined reason for each move that brings us to armed conflict. The truth is, War is what happens when diplomacy fails.
See another generalization, but unfortunately, this one may be true.
