Yes. That's why I said that the words you typed make sense. However, I don't see how that phrase applies to Russia. They were not friends with our enemies and they were not our friends, either. At the time, they were the enemies of our enemies.

i wasn't talking about Russia. i was talking about Germany, who was in bed with Tojo. Russia may not have been our friends, but we had a understanding.

i like the part where we elect ron paul as president and then are allowed to use fully automatic weapons, kick all the illegals out, smoke a joint, and not give two shits about what the rest of the world does because we will no longer be funding them nor be sending our soldiers to die for their own pathetic causes. Does anyone have a problem with that?

Oooo and did i mention we no longer pay income taxes? There are many other ways to collect tax. Taking from our pay check directly without consent is not american but unconstitutional.

So was I. You would be doing what a bunch of us have done. Stood tall to defend your countrys interests. I am refering to our past victorys cost of reparations. The United States has been exploited by the middle east (and others) for it's military muscle and foreign aid dollars.
We are the most generous country in the world.

To be fair, lets just put a value on Human Life.


39 US Combat Soldiers are a far greater loss than 35 Detrioters (assuming that 80% of those were crime related murders)

I'll remember that when you die, and I'll make sure you get a worse funeral than GM executives.
