Can you imagine it? Because I cannot. Oh if it was another Vietnam for the ammo sales there would be enough propaganda sure. But what those people did --one was my uncle Arbor who had already fought in WWI--giving up anything for a lowly soldier in the field to fight for freedom from real tyranny, not the made up kind waving an 18th century flag? The kind who shared with their neighbors instead of trying to make it sound like it's the neighbor's fault he's poor?
I pray for this country and its people many of whom are misguided. I didn't really know how gullible so many were and how utterly selfish till the past few years. I hope God blesses us and shows us all the way. I really do.

One of the things he got wrong was Americans today would be protesting that they had to ration stuff and people back then wouldn't. Back then the opposition would have been jailed. Spreading anti-war propaganda was considered sedition.The famous "you can't yell fire in a crowded theater" was analogy a supreme court judge was using to justify jailing anti-war activists. Imagine if anti-war activists during the Vietnam war, Afghanistan war and Iraq war were jailed under sedition? People like they guy in the video would be ****ting a brick.You would be posting threads the president is an nazi or fascist for jailing anti-war activists.
