The values of the elite and powerfull are completely different than those of the people. Congressman/Presisidents/Rockefellers don't send their children to fight in the war. They send their "Slaves". The US was lost about 30 years ago when too many people with non-american interests gained powers in the U.S. itself to the point of negating the will of true americans.
It's sad that many of our vets return to the world and have nothing. Their souls have been drained and spirits left on the battlefield. No one can understand the nightmares and memories that a vet faces each day after having visited hell on earth. Families suffer as casualties of war as do our GI's. As a society we wave our flags for them during the parade and forget them after. Our government labels returning vets as terrorists and offers them sub standard care and treatment. Some move on and some move out of life. Our country rewards social parasites who live off the livelihoods of working Americans with free housing, healthcare and food. What happens when a person loses their job? Our government gives them money for a few weeks and then oh well. Our country is going away just as Rome went away. These men have lived and died for nothing if we don't fix our country. The government can't fix what they broke. Only the normal citizen can right the wrongs.
