They Hate Us Because We're Free?

If the world hates us because we're free, wouldn't Finland, Denmark, and Sweden and the 11 other, much weaker countries which have more liberties be wiped off the map already? The U.S. is ranked 15th in civil liberties, folks. That's pretty pathetic for the self-purported champions and defenders of the free world.
The world doesn't hate us because we're free. That's pure propaganda.

The truth is, everyone hates us because America is run by imperialist warhawks who bomb innocent people and invade sovereign countries on false pretenses. It's really that simple, when you strip away the rhetoric and posturing.

I cannot understand how people continue to say that Ron Paul's foriegn policy is more dangerous than our current one, if not because of common sense and historical perspective, then simply because a large majority of the Americans who have seen it first-hand and don't have conflicting interests are all saying, "Wake up and smell the coffee!" (Hint: This group of people is described by an 8-letter word that starts with "V")

No one is destroying America more than your own government! No one is taking your liberty and endangering your life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness more than the corrupt Washington establishment, including many self-purported leaders, (but in fact, band-wagoners and infiltrators) of the once vibrant and Libertarian, now dead and neo-con "Tea Party". No one is more directly responsible for the recent deaths of countless U.S. citizens, soldiers, and veterans than our Federal Government.

While the suicide rate in the military was once lower than half the civilian rate, today, it is significantly higher, especially so among veterans of the conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan. The horrifying estimate is that EVERY 80 MINUTES a Veteran commits suicide! Every day another 18 uncounted casualties of unjust wars are thrown in the mass grave of a dishonorable death. You have the power to reverse this horrible betrayal and trend of falsehood and corruption. You only need to stand for truth, justice, and transparency.

Is it too much for those who have laid their very lives and futures on the line for you, to ask you to take a small risk and simply stand above the pettiness of the election year ruling party blame-game? To open your eyes to difficult truths that will illuminate and set afire the comfortable, dark cocoon of government-engineered ignorance?

Is it an unjust request for you to vote according to the dictates of your concience, common sense and our nation's founding principles, and not to have your views and beliefs dictated by your misplaced loyalty to a sullied and destructive notion of party politics, whose proponents are systematically stripping you of free speech, privacy, and every other foundation of personal liberty? I don't think it is too much to ask... Hard to say in one breath, but not too much to ask. Turn off the TV, and start digging.
