In a recent post at “Whatever Works” the blog author wrote:
USA! USA! USA! (ssshhhh, don’t let the secret out)
We don’t trust the Congress. We don’t trust the Executive. And since Bush v. Gore and all the 5-4 decisions since, we no longer trust the Supreme Court.
However, by all measures, Americans have a high level of trust in the U.S. military. Admiration too.
Don’t tell the flag wavers that the United States Military is an entirely Socialist enterprise. It would spoil their fun.
Figuring that my response would be censored I wanted to post it here to fight the lies:
saying that “the United States Military is an entirely Socialist enterprise” is a completely ignorant statement that shows you have no understanding of what Socialism is. If I am wrong, please give a definition of socialism and then show how the US military fits that definition.
Are you up for the challenge?
I hope that the author really is ignorant, because it would be scary if someone would knowingly propagate such lies.
