There are a lot of people out there who think we can be everybody's friend, that if we sat down with Osama Bin Laden that we could understand them and they wouldn't want to harm us any more. They think everything can be solved with diplomacy, that the entire human race should be able to get along together like the humans do on Star Trek. I am not one of these people.
There are a lot of people out there who see a conspiracy everywhere they look, when things done work out the way the would like, it means it was part of a master plan to scheme and deceive. Gore or Kerry doesn't win the election, it must be a conspiracy because it was the will of the people that the Democrats win. 9/11 was tailor-made to these conspiracy theorists who think Bush just wants to take over the world's oil supply to satisfy his buddies in Texas, no matter how many millions of American lives it may cost. I am not one of these people.
There are alot of people out there who hate America because they somehow think it is so unfair that we are so technologically advanced and well fed and other parts of the world are not. It absolutely irritates these people in what we have accomplished in building this nation and everything in it from nothing in 230 years while places like the Middle East and Africa have had thousands of years to create a civilization and have failed to do so, and to these people it means that we must have exploited the rest of the world, and they are ashamed of our success. I am not one of these people.
There are a lot of people out there who believe the US should never go to war, and should scrap their military altogether. Even if we get attacked first, we should turn the other cheek and not fight back because our army is so much larger than the other sides army, and it would not be a fair fight because we have jets and missiles and tanks and they live in caves. They think that if we laid down our arms and abolished gun ownership in the US and recalled all the troops overseas and all our navy ships and planes from foreign lands that other nations would do the same and we could all live in happiness. I am not one of these people.
There are many people out there who live in a delusional fantasy-land where there should be no evil, and if there is evil out there, that the US is the source of said evil. I am not one of these people.
This is a reply to my post on a GB message board. My original post is the same as the entry I made before here. I thought that this was a great answer from the poster known as MPoconnor7! I did not get their permission to repost their answer here(Though I tried to) so I hope they don't mind. MP if you are reading this, just wanna say that I agree completely, this is what I wanted to say but you have stated it so much more eloquently than I could.
