According to them, the ONLY place to get your news is Fox News because Fox News is NEVER biased.

How do I know? I used to believe this garbage.

Oh those "clueless" founding fathers:



....but she goes not abroad in search of monsters to destroy
- John Quincy Adams

"War is the parent of armies; from these proceed debts and taxes; and armies, and debts, and taxes are the known instruments for bringing the many under the domination of the few."
"No nation could preserve its freedom in the midst of continual warfare
" -James Madison

"The great rule of conduct for us, in regard to foreign nations, is in
extending our commercial relations to have as little political
connection as possible... Why, by interweaving our destiny with that of
any part of Europe, entangle our peace and prosperity in the toils of
European ambition, rivalships, interest, humor, or caprice?... It is our
true policy to steer clear of permanent alliances with any portion of
the foreign world."-George Washington

"Peace, commerce, and honest friendship with all nations — entangling alliances with none."- Thomas Jefferson

The world has moved on from 1776 and there is no going back, or don't you know that?

Why is it so very important to run around the planet "beating up the bad guys" and "rescuing the innocent victims"? And that's not really what's happening. We pick and choose which bad guys to beat up and which victims to rescue, based entirely on furthering American interests. We ignore the plight of victims in ways throughout Africa and do nothing to curb corporate exploitation of that entire continent. We do nothing on behalf of intense persecution and injustice heaped upon non-Muslim minorities in mostly-Muslim nations. We let despicable acts by allies pass because they are allies. Much of US intervention is intended to keep undeveloped foreign countries from developing, but you never hear much about it on the news. We've supported and empowered more corrupt dictators that I care to count.

If the USA is the world's policeman, then we're a very bad cop.

Why is a ridiculous amount of my own hard earned money being spent on our campaign of meddling with everyone and everything in the world?
