OUR FAILED FLING WITH WARFARE

THE MONEY IS GONE, SOMEONE WILL PAY FOR WELFARE

The U.S. failure can be labeled “Our failed fling with warfare,” be it the Korean Conflict, the Vietnam War, the Afghanistan War, the Iraq War, the drug war or, now our war on obesity.

Our politicians have wasted a lot of taxpayer dollars poking the U.S. of A’s nose into someone’s business with a claim that our security was at stake.

We have not won any of these wars, and we are not about to. There was no victory with North Korea, and we still have troops there. All we have done is ruin the lives of millions and financially broken our country doing these wars.

The Soviet Union came to an end because of its eight year war in Afghanistan. The Soviet Union and the U.S.A. were super powers in those days, and than there was just the U.S.A. as a super power.  This is not so today as China is growing unto the only super power.

To listen to some congressmen, the ruination of our nation is the welfare system.

The money we spend on welfare does a lot less harm for the dollar than what we have spent on warfare, and welfare does a lot more good.

Now some congressmen want to monkey around with our Social Security and Medicare even though we have paid into those programs for years.

The problem is our nation is almost broke, and those congressmen spent our retirement money for those wars that did not help us very much. We need to bring our military home as quickly as possible.

Those congressmen want to put us in the poorhouse by reducing our Social Security and Medicare benefits. Who is going to pay for our stay in the poorhouse?
