Freedom's Dues

Aren't you just amazed at all the Neo-Con blather about

to others?

The most astounding part is most of those doing all the hyper-ventilating over all these things never made any personal sacrifices for our country - but they'd really like for others to do so.

Not one of those who has never earned the right is qualified to demand ANYTHING of others. That includes most Neo-Cons and especially our Chickenshit-In-Chief and 97% of his administration!

Freedom is not something that anybody can be willed or given. Freedom and the rights that go with it must be earned by people for themselves, and it requires some personal sacrifice - some actual giving of oneself on behalf of our country's needs. It's a poor, poor, sad sort of person who is unwilling to offer any sacrifice for his own freedom but is more than willing and eager leave that responsibility to others.

Freedom always carries the burden of proof, always throws us back on ourselves.

These hyper-ventilating Neo-Cons greatly remind me of Artemus Ward who famously said:

"I have already given two cousins to the war and I stand ready to sacrifice my wife's brother."

If Neo-Cons really want to earn the right, then they could GO VOLUNTEER to serve our country in Iraq! That might convince me.

Until someone actually does something for our country more than simply exist in it, THEY HAVE NOT PAID THEIR DUES!
