37. Our freedoms were not givin to us by our Military elite!!!!!!
Edited on Tue Jul-15-03 01:54 PM by DeathvadeR
Im so sick of them saying that.. Taking credit for something that actually comes about from a growth process. Humans are fighting for various freedoms each day, all of us are. This so called freedom our leaders shout out and praise as if it were their gift to mankind!!! Freedoms are truth, and truth can only be supressed for so long Freedom eventually shows its head... Its just a matter of time.

Freedom is a state of Mind.

So tell me, what war is it that our US military allowed us to splender in the rays of freedom???? And don't give me the Colonial wars, because if it weren't for France(the very people we spit on for having an oppinion about the Iraq war)'s economic and military ability at the time, we might never had won that one either.
