The hypocrisy here is unbelievable. Families are expected to sacrifice their sons. Citizens are expected to sacrifice their rights, and turn a blind eye to torture and murder. But the real cause of this war is dependence on foreign oil, and at the first mention of any measure to stop our dependence, whether its a tax on gas, fuel mileage standards that would get SUVs off the road or even changing the kind of lightbulb they use, its the end of the world for these guys. We either need to fight a war, or not fight it. Instead, we live in a world of national idiocy where we have no coordinated plan to defeat the enemy that stalks us: dependence on oil supplied to us by nuthouse nations. Instead, we have this schzoid war where domestic conservatives claim they have the right to live the same way we do when we are at peace even though we are at war. A house divided against itself will not stand. These guys are a walking contradiction. Either we are at war, and should be fighting like a nation that is at war, or we are not. Why do these people who put us in and keep us in this war refuse to actually fight it? War is peace, baby.
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
