Americans Don't Run, And They
Don't Back Down! Obama Needs
To Step Up (Listen), And Learn!
What has gone wrong with the Congress of The United States that they appear as a bunch of strawmen (and women) dangling before a half-baked president who doesn't know left from right, up from down, or right from wrong? Just doesn't get it!
Why do so many in the so-called "media" of the day, insist upon forcing the opinion upon us that "Oh, Americans don't want war!" They indicate to too many that America will not fight.
No, we are not warmongers -- but we haven't seen the day in our time that Americans were willing to back down from a just and serious fight for freedom and justice. Kind of like the thing about the colors on the American Flag: Americans don't run!
So, why are the mouthpieces and the talking-heads trying to make it look as though The American people are unsure of our position in the world? That is not so! That is not the case! Anyone trying to sell that garbage, is wrong!
