Once again, you massage history.

 

We didn't go to war earlier not because we were unprepared.... we could have prepared if necessary.

 

We didn't go to war because 94% of Americans didn't want to go to war; listening to Anti-Semite Charles Lindbergh and his AMERICA FIRST group.

 

The days after December 7th were no different than the days before...... except now the population had a reason to prepare and fight.

 

As to the refugees, the U.S. knew it was sending people back to their deaths; it was one of the most shameful things our government ever did. Again, the AMERICA FIRST movement was involved.

At the time we didn't have a sufficient Army to even fight anyone.  No weapons, recruits were training with wood sticks, the draft was just being implemented, etc.  Any Army we sent to Europe would have been annihilated.  Besides the country didn't have a reasonable reason to declare war on Germany.

 

There was none of that reasonable cause until the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor.  They were in an alliance with Germany which then declared war on us.  Reasonable cause.

 

But we were sending supplies and equipment to England and had been.  Without those supplies England might have lost what is called the Battle of Britain.

 

Additionally the United States was still only accepting refugees on a limited basis since we were considered a neutral country.  And the country was following a fine line to avoid being involved in what was a European War.   Of course you are inserting your bias into your post.

America was great back when we thought and believed we were great.  We pulled together, accomplished great things and won a war on both sides of the world.


Of course, that's after we stayed out of the war almost long enough for Hitler to have conquered England......... and possibly realizing his dream of world dominance.

 

Of course, that's after we refused to accept JEWS from Europe as refugees and returned them to their deaths because people listened to those like Charles Lindbergh.

 

We may have won the war.... but we weren't as great as you try to make it sound.

I worked for what I get from Uncle Sugar, in fact had a contract that if I would go where he has wars, to places around the globe he wants me to go, and to give up birthdays, kids growing up;  time with family, then he would pay me a good retirement.  Fair enough?

 

No comparison.

Most of the poor are very young, very old, or disabled.

 

So saying stuff like that is just ignorant, stupid, or mean.


Not necessarily.  It is making a blanket statement that most of the poor are very young, very old or disabled that is as you say.  Call it whatever you want, but can you back your statement up?  Where is your facts and figures?

Which party is wanting to do this from cradle to grave? 

 

Does anyone remember when the country had a work ethic that made the country great?

C'mon, folks, aren't you getting tired of having to choose between two sides of the same coin?

 

I flat out don't buy the two sides of the same coin argument. That is just a false equivalence. 

 

Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, insured deposits,  voting rights act, women's sufferance, unemployment insurance, 40 hour work week, overtime pay, the Civil Rights act, Head Start, school lunches, the GI bill, the Peace Corps, I could go on but I won't

 

All ancient history right?

 

Why buy the cow when you can get the milk for free.

 

Now look which party is trying to roll a lot of that back.

 

We have two major parties in this country, and it's not the Democrats.
