I will become pro war when...

When our politicians send troops to war, they sleep in tents with sleeping bags every night for the duration of the war. When our politicians eat MRE's for lunch dinner and breakfast during the entire period of the war. When our politicians accept the same pay grade as the lowest paid enlisted soldier during the entire duration of the war. Every politician must go through one of the four branches of service bootcamps as soon as they sign on to become a politician. Politicians have to go through live fire drills once a week, and have to hump(hike)10 miles with a 100 pound pack on in full boots and utilitys to be done as a straight ten miles. They have to write 10 service people a week with a return address. Obama or any president could not go on vacation, golf, or do any activity for leisure that is not afforded to the troops while they are overseas. If they can do this, I will feel reassured that our troops are being put in harms way for our country's safety. If Ron Paul said something like this when asked about Iran and the likes, I guarantee you it would shut these coward war mongers up, and the crowd would go nuts.

And if these were

truly wars (Just Wars) and not pre-emptive invasions of soveriegn nations.

This post made me cry

...because Dr. Paul has already done this by serving and would be willing and ABLE to do it again.

Completely agree...

It's hard to depict reality to those who don't take the time to even mentally throw themselves in someone else's shoes.

Somewhere there are men planning the next destructive and evil ploy to make this world their own... The common man is not part of that plan as we would see fit... Merely pawns to be used against one another.

Excellent Post tog

I am wary of modern attempts to improve? upon the Constitution as written by the Founders but that is an Amendment I would enthusiastically support.

I mean to rout you out!

Why not send the politicians to fight overseas

and let the troops stay home to defend America?
