I didnt know where to put it so i'm putting it under "war on Terrorism"
What if we had peace?
Imagine. Bush would not be the "wartime president"....The Middle East would be taking out each other as they always have...other countries would be
at each others throats...but we had peace in our own country because we minded our own business....
Terrorism has always been there so we could put all our armies, Marines, etc on our soil, ready if need be, to protect us. We could have submarines
and coast guards on our shores....Of course, our air space would be watched...
What would be so bad?
Our men could come home and at least be close to their families...
What would be so bad about this?
Why do we always have to have a prescence in other countries?
Please dont tell me "we take the war to them, so they dont bring it here"
What if we minded our own business? There has to be a way for us to accomplish this in our little part of the world without putting so many men/women
Any thoughts? I think it IS REALISTIC and can be accomplished.
A civilized country such as ours ought to be setting examples- dont screw with us and we wont screw with you.
Of course, my little fairy tale is not viable if we want what others have- like oil. But just for a second, imagine.
This is something we could accomplish with the correct administration in place, if we had the right people in office.
So, some think we were attacked (and we were) Sept 11. Ok, 3000 lives were lost.
Not a pretty scene. But instead of declaring an all out war and going after Osama's first , second and third in command, and everyone associated
with him and not associated with him, we did just that, except the said perpetrator, OSama.
I guess my point is if Osama is not around- leave it alone. The man is dead, for christs sakes. Protect THIS NATION- close all the borders, and let
us go on living our lives as we had prior to 9/11. Keep a close watch on overseas flights (or dont go overseas at all) just domestic flights.
I really think those cells said to be in the USA should be easy enough to find and deport. Clean up the USA. And dont let anyone in who might pose a
A little Utopia where only those documented belong- out with the rest. If it wasnt for greed and votes, we could have accomplished this long ago.
For the sake of Republican votes, pfffttt.......who needs them?
I'd vote Republican again if the US was totally protected again. here we have people coming thru tunnels from Mexico with other than Spanish
accents, from Canada, by boat....and its still being allowed.
Send them all back- I think our shores should have armies, so should our borders.
Walls would be perfect too.
NO ONe Allowed.
Simplistic but its a start. Let Americans live in freedom instead of everyone now being suspect.
