    U.S. Citizens Sacrifice for Iraq War
    by Chris Martenson​


    At least once a week for the past few years I've heard some version of the above quote and it implies that the average person has not been inconvenienced in any way by the war. Both the left and the right go to great lengths to perpetuate this illusion of no sacrifice while using the statement to fulfill whatever partisan goal they are currently chasing. Such vacuous statements leave me breathless mainly because they are so explosively ignorant that they suck all of the oxygen out of the air. ​

    Every single person in America that uses money has sacrificed for this war. Anybody with savings, income, investments or who has bought anything over the past three years has sacrificed a significant portion of that money because of inflation brought on by excessive government spending on the Iraq War.​

    Maybe the government should try and sell bonds like they did in WWII, in order to fund the war. Oh, wait most of us aren't that gullible. :rolleyes:

    The one thing the United States is incomparably capable of making is money. We can make money so easily that the rest of the world marvels. Only the political left can slow it, through their relentless insistence on cradle to grave socialism.

    Why don't we just make enough to pay off Bush's increased debt and to fund Medicare and Social Security?

    Why don't we just get rid of the unconstitutional Federal Reserve System?
