To be blunt senator, if our military were fighting for our liberty, our military would surround D.C. and arrest most of the senate and con-gress for treason. You people don't even have the balls to shut down the Federal Reserve and restore America to sound constitutional money. You people don't have the balls to kick out the United Nations and tear up every single U.N. treaty. You people sit aside and allow U.N. Agenda 21 to be implemented in every State of the Union. You people stand idly by while presidents create unconstitutional E.O.'s. You people stand around and slap each other on the backs, play grab-ass, and trade pens, while using the constitution as toilet paper while telling us how wonderful the constitution is. -- Curtis
So vicious was this war propaganda that even God was brought into it. With few exceptions our clergymen joined in the clamor to kill, kill, kill. To kill the Germans. God is on our side...it is His will that the Germans be killed.
And in Germany, the good pastors called upon the Germans to kill the allies...to please the same God. That was a part of the general propaganda, built up to make people war conscious and murder conscious. -- Major General Smedley Butler USMC
Beautiful ideals were painted for our boys who were sent out to die. This was the "war to end all wars." This was the "war to make the world safe for democracy." No one mentioned to them, as they marched away, that their going and their dying would mean huge war profits. No one told these American soldiers that they might be shot down by bullets made by their own brothers here. No one told them that the ships on which they were going to cross might be torpedoed by submarines built with United States patents. They were just told it was to be a "glorious adventure." -- Major General Smedley Butler USMC
War is the health of the State. It automatically sets in motion throughout society these irresistible forces for uniformity, for passionate cooperation with the government in coercing into obedience the minority groups and individuals which lack the larger herd sense. -- Randolph Bourne
