If we are to get older

If we are to get older Republicans, we need to show them the truth about the wars. We should drop the "peace" label. We literally have a military for hire, except we're the ones paying for it. I think people assume that their favorite politicians have some unspoken reason for invading these countries -- something that is a net benefit to us financially. It's not about oil. It's about an entangling alliance that is a huge drain to the country.

We're not hippies. It's not about a pie-in-the-sky fantasy of world peace. We want to become the trade capital of the world again, but we can only do that if we let other countries fight over whose ancestors claimed what land 2000 years ago.
