THINGS WE DON’T NEED TO KNOW

WAR. It’s not for everybody. If it were, everybody would be doing it. Wars are best left to those trained and equipped to fight them. And we best leave them alone to do their job, or else we all suffer exponentially greater chances of defeat. War entails national security. That means securing and preserving our freedom, our way of life, our right to walk down our neighborhood streets without fear. National security in and of itself is not a matter for public discussion, let alone exposure to the world—a world full of evildoers who wish to destroy us. Divulging secrets during time of war was once considered treason. Today’s liberals/democrats would have us all believe that public information is more important than national security. At any time previous to the present in our history, matters of national defense and national security were held close to the vest by those empowered and entrusted to protect us. The very civil liberties our government leaders and our military devote themselves and sacrifice their very lives to provide have become the cancer that, if left unchecked, will be our undoing. If we hold life to be sacred and precious, then what we do as a nation to preserve the lives of our citizens is therefore equally sacred and precious. Sensational journalism replete with graphically horrific photography designed to shock and instill fear is the cheapest form of “public information,” particularly because it demoralizes not only those of us here at home, but those engaged in mortal conflict on our behalf. How can we allow ourselves to day-after-day bite the hand that feeds us…to discourage those who stand up for us against the greatest enemy in the history of mankind?? Partisan squabbling and politically motivated leaks to rabid media have to stop if we have any hope of remaining THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. Wake up, people!! The wisdom of Benjamin Franklin is brilliant in our current dilemma. “We must all hang together, or assuredly, we shall all hang separately.”

At the rate the media is going, we might as well just hand the enemies a book entitled "How to defeat the US!"

No, actually, the media are writing that very book themselves....
