not a big Ayn Rand fan, but she nailed it on this one.

What are we fighting for in Iraq? Oil ... er, the freedom of the Iraqi people!

Deborah, Oxnard, CA

I wonder how many Americans that are supporting the Iraq debacle know why this country is there.

Iraq is for freedom. Any one that does not know that is blind.

Joe & Deborah how soon we forget the "battle cry of the Clintons" and Main stream media. We are shutting down all oil supply, not just to the US but the World! Oh ya and Slick Willy was offered Ben Baby 3 times on a silver patter and he said no! Clintons have done more to tear down the US then they did impove it! North Korea, China. They wouldn't sell warfare technology to the highest bidder now would they!!

this is an awesome book ( anthem)

Very simply, find out where people put the responsibility for their lives. If they are not pointing to themselves, then chances are they have been disempowered and merely parrot the party line as justification for their 'sacrifice.' Those defending their liberty, property KNOW for what they fight -- those fighting to TAKE it do not.
