I've got a better idea - how about getting the greedy rich fuckers who screwed us all into a war to pay up? You know, like getting the people who actually have the money, the ones who loot the treasury by getting tax breaks financed by borrowed money to actually pay their fair share of taxes? And then again, there are the oil companies who get billions upon billions of tax breaks other companies don't get, financed by the middle class, why are they getting to screw us up the ass at the pump while we also pick up their tax tab as well?
Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.
-President Barack Obama, 1st Inaugural address
