If your thinking 'WE' as us modern day yokels that constantly have to be reminded what freedom is, then yes, I could see the laughter. But I was talking about the 'WE' as a nation with a history of defending freedom and the veterans who willing gave their lives because they believed we shouldn't have to goosestep to work. I never said WTC was the price of freedom. THAT is the cost of freedom under fire from those that despise and test democracy. For someone that really seeming doesn't like democracy (although I'm sure likes living in one) I'm not seeing any offered solutions.... Is this just going to be a bitch session? Shall we all just point at pictures and be armchair critics? I can understand the frustration, I mean, can't we just all get along? The reality is, no. As much as I hate having to type that answer (I'm all for a group hug) that's the reality. There will always be haters of democracy and what it stands for.
