Never in history has an armed force successfully defended Habeas Corpus rights by being stationed within their own country...

I understand that you're preference is for freedom over safety, and I laud you for it; but having the US armed forces bored at home is definitely not the solution ;) .

That's assuming that the Iraq invasion has made us safer. Only we keep hearing how it hasn't.

Who says they'd be bored? I say send them agains the white house!

At one time, the US was great. What's so great about it now? We're more like the Germans in WW2 now then ever...

Homeland Security... reminds me of "The Fatherland" speachs by Hitlar...

Invading other countries... Wounderfull stuff...

Who says we shouldn't rebel agains the current regime? Remeber the Independince war in the 1700's?
