Please elaborate a bit further what you mean by anti-American. Is it anti-American to question a government that was supposed to serve the people, instead of herd the people? Who's doing the brainwashing? The label "anti-American" is affixed so readily to anybody who thinks for themselves it seems, just because somebody is against this outrage invasion of a country that posed a lesser threat to us than many others, that makes them anti-American? Just because somebody would rather our soldiers be here at home with us, instead of fighting a war not to defend our country, but to defend several key corporations' bottom lines, that means they are "against" the soldiers, right? Let's put it in perspective, if one person would prefer you be home with your family for the holidays, and another thinks you should be taking gunfire, for whatever reason other than defending your family from an actual tangible threat, which person would you truly feel is against you?

this gentleman Thomas Jefferson is a genius when it comes to understanding the nature of the human mind i.e. human nature.

Government is not reason, it is not eloquence—it is force.” – George Washington

“No man has a natural right to commit aggression on the equal rights of another, and this is all from which the laws ought to restrain him.” – Thomas Jefferson

“The tree of Liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants…God forbid we should ever be twenty years without such rebellion; what country can preserve its liberties if their rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance? Let them take arms!” – Thomas Jefferson

“Under the laws of nature, all men are born free, every one comes into the world with a right to his own person, which includes the Liberty of moving and using it at his own will. This is what is called personal Liberty, and is given him by the Author of nature, because necessary for his own sustenance.” – Thomas Jefferson

“I hold it, that a little rebellion, now and then, is a good thing, and necessary in the political world as storms in the physical.” – Thomas Jefferson

“The two enemies of the people are criminals and government, so let us tie the second down with the chains of the Constitution so the second will not become the legalized version of the first.” – Thomas Jefferson

“It is weakness rather than wickedness which renders men unfit to be trusted with unlimited power.” – John Adams
