The idea that the federal government needs to rein in spending, stop increasing the debt and limit the power, reach and scope of influence into the lives and lifestyles of US citizens, is not whiny or self-absorbed. Unless you think standing up for our rights and freedoms is whiny. If more people around the world stood up and demanded their rights and freedoms as human beings....

You'd have to read any post I've made to know the answer to your own question. Your preference to publicly lie to yourself doesn't make anything you contribute to forum factual beyond your hellbent commitment to lying.

wow, alot of double talk than anything else I can see. I for one do not defend the rights of anyone but american citizens, all the rest of the world can go rot in the trash heap for all I care.
your answer still does not answer the question I put before you in my eariler post either.

Not entirely true; there are/were a lot of "whiny self-absorbed malcontents" liberal/leftist/socialist types in the Military. Some of those who had what it takes actually made pretty good troops.

Since the Democrats controlled the Presidency and Congress for two straight years and didn't get us out of any wars, I'm all for EVERYONE in elected office at the federal level being sent to the front lines. If these traitors had to serve next to the young men they're murdering, they wouldn't be in ANY pointless wars overseas.

I'm confused here.

Wasn't it the Left who said the war in Afghanistan was the "right" war? Wasn't it the Left who said we needed to get out of Iraq and focus on the "real" war in Afghanistan? Wasn't it obama who sent in 70,000 more troops to Afghanistan?

And I'm pretty sure the "Patriot" line to go would be much
longer then the "liberal" line to defend America as the current
administration has proven that it does not have America's
best interest at heart along with your support !

So Put your money where the "liberal" mouth is, Show
your support for the failed policies your of guy that is in
presidential on the job training at Americas expense
and send a check to the following address

Department of the Treasury
1500 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW
Washington, D.C. 20220



amen to that!!
I have a wonderful patroit in my family he is in the navy!!

I think the union thugs should put their money there, since they have the most of it!
could you see these twits facing a real threat??
think they would stand up and yell for their rights, or run and hide behind a real hero who has the gun and who is fighting for our freedom?
my money is we would have pee in floods there from these frigging cowards while they scatter like rats, no offence to rats!
how about the poster go stand a post instead of this bull crap~
