Wars are for freedom and democracy.

Congressman Kilmer,

If wars are fought for democracy- how come women were not allowed full voting rights at the end of WWI?

Why the need for a 1965 Voting Rights Act if overseas military operations somehow secured voting rights?

With all this talk of freedom- would it be OK to grow a marijuana plant in the back yard?

Can I take my 20 year old girlfriend (a responsible adult) down to the bar to order up a few beers for freedom?

Should we check with the Joint Chiefs of Staff first?


Need more people to stay for undeclared/unwon wars that never end update:

July 8th, 2019 Marine Corps Times

The Corps is offering big bonus bucks for ground combat Marines in 2020

“…some Marines may be eligible for bonuses and extra kicker payments totaling nearly $90,000.”

“The Commandant of the Marine Corps Gen. Robert B. Neller has spent the past several years overhauling Corps’ ground combat element by equipping the force with new automatic weapons, rocket launchers, drones and tablets.”

The Department of Defense track record for winning undeclared wars goes back to 1949.
