Largest standing army

Reader comment on item: "Death to America"
in response to reader comment: Why?

Submitted by Douglas W Coulter (United States), Oct 19, 2010 at 18:05

We need wars to support our huge standing army, currently the largest in the world. We are fighting on more battle fronts than Hitler was during WW2, his most fatal error. What our wars are is pure propaganda of who is our enemy. The poor have always been Americas enemy throughtout our history. "We hold these truths to be self evident that all (white male perodastant land owners) are created equal" Doesn't sound quite as lovely but if you read the history you know its true. Read down farther in the declaration to "Native savages that have no regard for women and children" For every Little Big Horn there are a thousand Wounded Knees. What are our wars today? Not just overseas but in our on nation against the poor with our war on crime and war on drugs. Over two million Americans in prison? 500,000 more than China's prison population. Over three million on parole or probation and the army of police, guards, DEA, FBI and lawyers to support the largest imprisonment project in world history. America is destroying itself with genocide by making enemies of the whole world.

A little tune to Henry the 8th

I'm an enemy of state I am enemy of state I am I am practice a religion that you abhore praying 7 times a day and more If that's all it takes to be your enemy than freedom of religion is a sham When you make all men your enemy than an enemy of state I am

Read 1927 supreme court Buck Vs Bell forced sterilization law still never overturned, we taught white supremist idea to the Nazi's, they modeled eugenics after our laws.
