This is more or less a rant after hearing another media pundit talk about the troops overseas "fighting for our freedoms." Of course we know our troops are being brainwashed and exploited to serve various special interests (which REALLY pisses me off). BRING THE TROOPS HOME AND DEFEND OUR BORDERS. I apologize for leaving out hundreds of other so-called freedoms we share here in Amerika.
“Democracy is a con game. It’s a word invented to placate people to make them accept a given institution. All institutions sing, ‘We are free.’ The minute you hear ‘freedom’ and ‘democracy’, watch out… because in a truly free nation, no one has to tell you you’re free.” - Jacque Fresco
