While we claim to be engaged in a "war" on terror, it's not as big a war as the war in 1942. No one is being drafted. We're not converting our factories to wartime use. The so-called "war" on terror is similar to the "war" on drugs (which reminds us of Colorado again, come to think of it).
For what it's worth, there's also one important difference between 2015 and 1942. In 2015, the President supports the welcoming of refugees. In 1942, the President supported the creation of camps.
Of the governor (of, I am proud to say, Colorado) who stood up for the rights of a rejected, villainized, demonized people ... and paid the price. A true Profile in Courage.
