It was a hard fought war by brave men to reaffirm inalienable rights that is lost in the minds of delusional, cowardly politicians of both main parties in the United Socialist America of today. Allied by apathetic, self-indulging capitalist, socialist, and sports fans with their vicarious life, vain glory and purpose, all along regarded as "Human Resource" as their own nation is bled to the compromise of virtue for the supposed peace and security of Globalization. The East is astounded as we the U.S.A. embrace our own demise.

It is to God now, to affront power that has assumed His Sovereignty.
