  •  If they're crazy enough to start a war... (8+ / 0-)

    ... then let them be the ones who do the actual fighting in a war.  Let them kill each other off.

    I can live with that.

    I think ONE aspect of life we should go back to is that if "leaders" start a war, then can damned well be the ones leading the charge in the fighting out on the battlefields, too, not sit back comfortably and pretend war is a computer game.  In ancient times that was what "leaders" did: actually go out on fields of battle to defend their honor and their claims to whatever they were fighting over.

    If they can't do that, they don't deserve to be called "leaders."

    I prefer a world of peace, and spending money for education for kids from earliest through college years, single-payer (non-corporate) medical care for all with a medical system styled after the three Scandinavian countries (yes, taxes are high, but they also get a lot for those high taxes, too, without having to pay additional fees).  The top two things they do is provide (prepaid) free education for everyone and (prepaid) free medical care for everyone with those tax dollars.  They also have good road systems and keep their transportation routes and bridges and such in good repair.

    Ergo, let them be raptured..., and good riddance to bad rubbish.

    I'm sick of attempts to steer this nation from principles evolved in The Age of Reason to hallucinations derived from illiterate herdsmen. ~ Crashing Vor
