This is why I am voting for Gary Johnson.
I too was caught up in the “we’ll light up their world like the 4th of July” emotion that swept the Nation after the heinous actions of radical extremists on September 11th.
But after 15 years, what has the countless wars brought our Republic other then thousands of grave-sites that were filled way too soon.
I support the brave men and women of our Armed Forces and those who have lost friends and family in our “war on terror.” Yes Saddam Hussein was an evil vile man, Osama Bin Laden and the Taliban were evil. But is the Middle East any better off today for our actions? Are we better off today for our actions?
I think if anyone takes the time to honestly think and reflect upon that question, the answer would be a resounding NO.
