It's memorial day and it's time for you pompous patriots to remember something.
Just because people like me don't support wars for capitalist gains DOES NOT mean we can't feel for those who have died fighting for what they THOUGHT was the right thing. It DOES NOT mean we wish death to the troops.
We wish nothing of the sort. We want nothing more than for them to all come home and stop dying to line the pockets of rich fools.
We want truth, peace and liberty when all this world offers is lies, conflict and death.
Today should not only honor those who have died fighting wars for oil and profit under the GUISE of democracy but we should also honor those who fight AGAINST the system and the tyranny every day. The activists and "crazy anti-American" protesters and, to an extent, even the armchair warriors who contribute to the good fight. These people spend their lives as outcasts from society, their sanity constantly being questioned, their lives constantly being judged, with the soul purpose of SAVING the poor and disenfranchised youth from putting themselves on the frontlines based on LIES and MANIPULATION.
Raise your flags today but raise them the right way, upside down. Our nation is in distress and it's time to let go of all the rhetoric and take an honest look at what we are really doing here.
