Defending America Part 5
The Next Generations

Generations two and three of the radical right are worse than generation one. Not only are they intellectual cowards, they are moral and physical cowards as well. They are scared little men and women who not only were/are willing to let others put their lives on the line in defense of freedom, they insist upon it.

From 1945 to 1991 the far right continually shouted that communism and the Soviet Union were deadly threats to American democracy and freedoms. Today it is terrorists. They preach(ed) that sacrifice was/is needed from all. Here is a partial list of those who have worked in the current Administration that have refused to heed their own call. I list the highest government or political station they have thus far attained. Draft Dodger signifies the person used some kind of deferment between 1948-1973 to avoid military service. Did Not Enlist means the draft did not apply to this person because of age or sex.

Let me assure you that I do not say or imply that all people who used deferments or did not enlist in the military or either cowards or unpatriotic, but I am saying it about those listed below. They and those like them who scream about dangers to our nation then do nothing about it except insist someone else act, are cowards of the worst kind. Those who start and support unjust wars based on lies and Machiavellian manipulations while requiring someone else’s sacrifice and blood are not patriots they are traitors to freedom and democracy.

This is but a small list and does not include those officially not in government, people like Richard Scaife, William Kristol, Antonin Scalia, Newt Gingrich, Grover Norquist, Ralph Reed, Rush Limbaugh, Bill O’Reilly, Sean Hannity, and Lee Atwater just to name a few. Every time these and others like them open their mouths and deceitfully declare to be the true defenders of liberty they dishonor all those who truly were and are. To quote Dalton Trumbo, “You can always hear the people who are willing to sacrifice somebody else's life. They're plenty loud and they talk all the time. You can find them in churches and schools and newspapers and legislatures and congress.”

The Bush Credo - No Sacrifice Is Too Great For Others To
