Polls: Americans Want Our Liberties Restored, Our Troops Brought Home and the Federal Reserve Reined In

Preface: This essay is not intended as an endorsement (or non-endorsement) of Ron Paul. Rather, it is intended to demonstrate why Ron Paul is becoming so popular, despite being virtually ignored by the mainstream media. Had Obama followed the American people’s wishes – as revealed by the poll numbers cited below – he would easily win re-election.

Americans: Rein In the Federal Reserve

CNN notes:

“We are seeing a level of enthusiasm for Ron Paul that can be compared with President Obama in 2008”, said Eric Brakey, Media Coordinator for NYC Liberty HQ, the grassroots organization hosting the rally for the candidate. “Congressman Paul’s youth support is different now than it was during his last presidential campaign. It’s more organized and it’s picking up steam and continues to grow”.

As the longtime congressman from Texas stepped onto the stage, the crowd screamed with enthusiasm. The audience’s biggest reaction came when he spoke about ending the Federal Reserve. “The country has changed in the last four years, but my message hasn’t changed” Paul said. “The country is ripe for a true revolution”.

At least 75% of the American people want a full audit of the Fed, and most were against reconfirming Bernanke.

Indeed, as Bloomberg noted last December:

A majority of Americans are dissatisfied with the nation’s independent central bank, saying the U.S. Federal Reserve should either be brought under tighter political control or abolished outright, a poll shows.


Americans across the political spectrum say the Fed shouldn’t retain its current structure of independence. Asked if the central bank should be more accountable to Congress, left independent or abolished entirely, 39 percent said it should be held more accountable and 16 percent that it should be abolished. Only 37 percent favor the status quo.

As I have extensively documented, the Fed is largely responsible for the economic crisis, and has failed to meet a single one of its stated mandates (let alone its implied ones).

Americans Are Sick and Tired of Never-Ending War

Ron Paul is also gaining popularity because he is against the never-ending War On Terror, and wants to bring the troops home. Americans are sick of the never-ending, ever-creeping war. See this, this and this.

As Talking Points Memo reported earlier this month:

“…Only about a quarter say the wars in Iraq (26%) and Afghanistan (25%) have lessened the chances of terrorist attacks in the United States,” the Pew report reads. “In both cases majorities say the wars either have increased the risk of terrorism in this country or made no difference.”

Top American military leaders agree, saying that the war on terror has weakened our national security.

Americans Want Our Liberties Back

Mr. Paul also speaks alot about the importance of liberty.

And Americans have become much less tolerant of the wholesale destruction of our constitutional freedoms in the name of fighting terrorism.

As Talking Points Memo notes:

On the eve of the ten year anniversary of 9/11, the Pew Research Center has released new data on Americans’ reaction to the attacks, and the foreign and national security policies pursued in the post 9/11 era. They show a country with views that have evolved on the relationship between civil liberties and the tools given to government to fight terrorism, and a disbelief that the continuing wars in Iraq and Afghanistan helped to lessen the chance there will be another terrorist attack on the United States.

The Pew survey showed a large shift in the number of Americans who are willing to see some of their civil liberties go out the window in the name of fighting terrorism. Directly after 9/11, Americans were willing to make the deal, as 55 percent thought it was necessary, against 35 percent who felt the opposite. Now, only 40 percent felt that giving up some civil liberties is necessary to curb terrorism, with 54 percent against.

Hundreds of Millions of Americans Can’t Be Stopped

Of course, criticizing the Fed, wanting to end the wars, liking Ron Paul, or “taking a cynical stance toward politics, mistrusting authority, endorsing democratic practices, … and displaying an inquisitive, imaginative outlook” can bring on heightened scrutiny or displeasure from the powers-that-be.

But given that the overwhelming majority of Americans fall in one or more of these categories, they can’t harass hundreds of million of us.

Note: Instead of labeling the opinions described above as “conservative” or “liberal, please read this.

    You should have also added Rep. Dennis Kucinich who wants to go beyond auditing the FED.

    And, the Monetary Reform Conference starts tomorrow. It needs more coverage.

    These protests should turn into a Main Street Rally with messages of the road to take to help everyone.


    Congressman Kucinich’s Historic Monetary Reform Bill

    Congressman Dennis Kucinich introduced an employment bill Reforming Our Money System: The NEED Act proposes a historic money reform, containing all the monetary provisions of the American Monetary Act including ending “fractional reserve” banking.

    2011 Monetary Reform Conference Speakers/Schedule

    The 7th Annual AMI Conference will be held at University Center, in Chicago, Sept. 29 – Oct. 2, 2011. The deadline for early registration is soon!

    …Congressman Dennis Kucinich introduced the National Emergency Employment Defense Act (“NEED,” HR 6550*) which contains all the monetary reform provisions of The American Monetary Act- see the brochure at http://www.monetary.org. It is much more than regulation; it fundamentally reforms our private CREDIT/DEBT system now wrecking our nation and harming all humanity, and replaces it with a government MONEY system.

    The Act achieves reform with 3 basic provisions. All three are necessary; doing one or two of them wouldn’t work and could cause more damage.

    In brief:

    First the Federal Reserve gets incorporated into the U.S. Treasury where all new money is created by our government – what people think happens now.

    Second, It ends the fractional reserve system. Banks no longer have the accounting privilege of creating our money supply. All their previously issued credit is converted into U.S. Money through an elegant and gentle accounting change. The banks are held accountable for this conversion and from that point operate the way people think they do now – as intermediaries between depositors and borrowers.

    Third, new money is introduced by the government spending it into circulation for infrastructure, starting with the $2.2 trillion the engineers tell us is needed to properly maintain our infrastructure over the next 5 years. Infrastructure will include the necessary human infrastructure of health care and education.

    Banks are encouraged to continue lending as profit making companies, but are no longer allowed to create our money supply through their loan making activity.

    Thus, The NEED Act nationalizes the money system, not the banking system. Banking is absolutely not a proper function of government, but providing the nation’s money supply is a key function of government. No one else can do it properly. Talk of nationalizing the banking business really acts like a poison pill to block real reform. Same for talk of the states going into the banking business keeping the fractional reserve system in place, and allowing the banks to continue creating what we use for money! That would reform nothing and actually endorses the fractional reserve system! It is a farcical diversion, misleading some good people away from real monetary reform at the only time reform is possible – during a crisis. All serious Monetary reformers understand that banks can not be allowed to create our money supply.

    Despite prejudice against government, most people are surprised to learn that history shows government has a far superior record in controlling the money system than private controllers have. And yes that includes the continental currency, the Greenbacks and even the German Hyperinflation; which by the way took place under a completely privatized German central bank, with all governmental influence removed! These facts, though not taught in your econ classes, are discussed at length in my book The Lost Science of Money….

    Perhaps you will consider Prof. Kaoru Yamaguchi’s Systems Dynamics study of the American Monetary Act? He examined it with the most advanced computer systemology and found that:

    It pays off the national debt

    It provides the funds for infrastructure (solving the unemployment problem)

    It does this without causing inflation. You can read his results at http://www.monetary.org

    And, endorsed by
    James K. Galbraith to the Subcommittee on Crime, Senate Judiciary Committee, May 4, 2010.


    How the Economists Facilitated the Crisis and How HR 6550* Solves it

On June 13, 2011, in The State’s Crisis, by AMI

I thank the EEA for this opportunity to address you. This talk is not meant as an attack but as a challenge to “young economists.” It’s important that the economic profession be held to account for its’ part in this crisis.

The crisis gives a rare opportunity for reform. There’s no denying that the present “Economics” regime has been a key cause of the pain, suffering, illness and even death inflicted on America’s less affluent; and of the worldwide economic destruction we see. My observations are admittedly from an outsider and there should be a value for you from that perspective, but this was well expressed by Economist Jamie Galbraith in testimony to the Senate Crime subcommittee on May 4th, 2010:

“I write to you from a disgraced profession. Economic theory, as widely taught since the 1980s, failed miserably to understand the forces behind the financial crisis.”

    With rare exceptions, those in control of the World’s monetary/economic agenda and the theories supporting it have helped bring the world to its knees.

    Shouldn’t they (and their theories) be held accountable? The challenge will be for “youngsters” like yourselves, to bring your chosen profession to its senses.

    False “monetary” beliefs (some call them theories) have misdirected public policy decisions for decades, with devastating effect! Errors of Concept, methodology and factual errors led to disastrous outcomes for our nation and have the potential to gradually take America down into an unprecedented abyss of lawlessness and deprivation. Consider the present insane calls for austerity. Economists have allowed the idea to prevail that a government has to be run the way a shopkeepers runs his store. These times call for greater care and some heroism among economists; and cowardice is no longer tolerable among those who do understand.

    Which particular monetary errors? Most importantly, economists have not understood or appreciated the difference between money and credit. That using credit for money is dangerous, harmful and unnecessary. Can’t they read Knapp’s “State Theory of Money, available in English since the early 1920s, to understand credit is just one type of money system, and not a good one at that? Even Minsky who pointed out that such a fractional reserve system always collapses, regarded that as a problem inherent in “Capitalism, and didn’t consider eradicating it but merely called for government providing jobs when the credit structure was in collapse. A solution that one of AMIs researchers said was like “trimming poison ivy!”

    Many economists have falsely concluded that “all money is debt,” and while most money in our particular mis structured system is debt, this attitude ignores the possibility and necessity to define a better system based on government money, not private debt. This failure to understand the concept of government money as opposed to private credit, has had immense and deadly repercussions. The Great Henry Simons summed it up in one magnificent sentence in the 1930s:

    “The mistake … lies in fearing money and trusting debt.”
    Henry Simons, (Economic Policy for a Free Society, 1930s, P.199)

    This fundamental error has allowed the most egregious banking and money system to dominate our society for a century. It has caused immense damage:

    For example: The privatization of our monetary system, with control over public policy being in unelected hands, for whoever controls the money system, over time will control the nation.

    Stop believing in any of the polls that the media does. Sounds like more b.s. to me. People want the end of tyranny, the end of the police state, the end of financial slavery by bankers, the end of bs media. It’s 100% and we are not divided at all, so stop spitting out numbers like there are people who support this b.s.

    Your half-correct, actually we want the Fed ABOLISHED.

  • jon

    Here is what is going to happen. The world economy is planned to collapse so the new world government can take over. you wont be able to buy or sell without the mark. Something will come from the sky and kill a lot of people. God will stop the disasters for the elect peoples sake. So all of this stuff that it’s going to get better is bogus. These polls are all bogus. No one is divided among the people. The FED, the crooks in Congress, the police state, and IRS all need to take a hike.

  • Lars

    Thanks, great article.

    Personally I have stopped watching or reading the news. I use the TV only for watching films and sport. It is now so obvious to me that the media is only there to brainwash the people. You now find more truth in Hollywood films than in the daily propaganda “news”. If anybody wants to prove this to themselves just follow how the media has lied and misinformed about Ron Paul. Every straw poll Dr. Paul wins is reported as “Straw polls don’t matter” and everyone one the establishment candidates (and that is all the rest of them except for Johnson) wins is reported with headline news like “New frontrunner”. The good news is that it is now so obvious that we have a Soviet style propaganda media that millions of people just turn of their TV’s and begin to think for themselves. The revolution of ideas now can’t be stopped. We have passed the tipping point. The establishment can’t put their Humpty Dumpty together again.

    • Bobby

      Lars, it is amazing to me, how the Main Stream Media outlets, simply lie to citizens faces. A friend of mine told me of how precise the propaganda is nowadays, and I expressed surprise at his comment. When he asked me why, I said that it isn’t even a matter of propaganda anylonger. The elite in the U.S. don’t even care about propaganda but are so outrageous that they just carry out their evil policies right IN YOUR FACE.(in the citizens faces) They don’t even bother to explain illegal immigration, they just allow it. They don’t worry about allowing 1 million people, every year, into the country legally either. Then at the same time the politicians talk about jobs!!!! What!!!! As I said, They pull this crap literally in our faces, without explaination.

  • dogismyth

    Reign in the fed?? What the heck does that mean?

    That statement tells me YOU DON”T GET IT!!

    Why do we need a central bank? Why do we need a private, for-profit, entity to maintain our monetary policy? Why do we need a central bank to print our money?

    You just have no balls to say it. END THE FED.

    Why are we still listening to arguments to maintain the Fed? Are there any real arguments as to the benefit of maintaining the fed? What are they?

    END THE FED. Investigate their stakeholders. Claw back all moneys stolen from the taxpayers.

    Now that’s change. And I will not vote until I hear that from a wannabe leader’s mouth. Otherwise, they’re all full of shit. And you will continue to eat shit sandwiches.

    • Bobby

      Totally agree. What the Fed and Wall Street have been doing is in fact, totally criminal. These people don’t even consider American citizens. It’s a moot point to them. And so many Americans are clueless in not realizing how many polticians are in their pockets. I doubt Americans will ever wake up.

  • Ron Paul – Saves America!

    Look at where we are today without Ron Paul in charge.
    Imagine if we elect Ron Paul to be in charge.
    He is our only hope to save America.
    Anyone less….is less qualified.

  • Mojavelou

    I too believe Ron Paul is our only, and maybe last, hope we have of getting our country back. Chances are, he could win the election and we’d never know about it. Just look how the media and status quo treats him. How some of these clowns keep getting re-elected is beyond me. Are people really that dumb? Enough, God Bless America-again.

  • wray edwards

    Kennedy, Garfield, McKinley, Lincoln and many others have been murdered by FED linked hit men and women for wanting to free Americans from debt slavery. The deaths of millions can be traced to activities of international banksters. Most recently U.S.I. mercenary, imperial troops under the control of zionist bankers have attacked Libya for wanting to set up an IMF, interest free pan African bank for the nations of Africa.

    The usurious, war mongering Rothschild banking dynasty will stop at nothing to prevent such positive, independent nations like Libya from escaping their iron grip. A nation which builds the world’s most sophisticated fresh water utility, free health care, free education, free housing, 14 cents a gallon gasoline and many other advanced concepts such as direct democracy, is by example a great threat to the genocidal designs of the banksters.

    Ron Paul knows how to stop the FED. I spoke with him years ago and he is still the honorable, humane man now, as he was back then. If he does win, i greatly fear for his safety.

  • Don Forsyth

    I don’t want the Fed reigned in, I want abolished! The conspirators and counterfeiters imprisoned. I don’t want liberty, I want unfettered freedom. Liberty is a permission from a ships master, I am not at sea. The corruption must stop addressed for the so called,”upper class” just as it is with the so called, “lower class”, if you have any class. Government must issue the currency and release it into the economy interest free, private banks should have limits on any forms of interest or fees charged to the public. Absolve the fraudulent debt created by banks to enslave the masses and start fresh.

  • Jay Rowland

    Put the criminals in jail, war criminals, banking criminals, 9/11 criminals, on and on. And I think we would have a better place to live here. And most likely these problems would not be an issue if we would just prosecute the bad people in this country.

  • Hi

    End the Fed!! We The People can print our own money interest free. Why are we being so dumb to give this awesome POWER to a private institution known as evil “Den of Vipers”? They can go to hell with their confetti paper!! Money should belong to the people interest free and NOT used for Wall St Casinos and bailing out foreign countries, corporations, and other private banks in TRILLIONS of our money! END THE FED!!!!

  • Yung Drupulus

    Although printing our own (interest-free) money would be a step in the right direction since it would entail ending the fed, I don’t think it’s the best choice. That is, because this would still be enforced (ultimately, through coercion) by the government. Also, this could/would lead to a highly inflationary outcome.

    Allow the market (i.e. people) to decide what to use as money. There’s nothing “different” about money that it requires a centralized authority to arbitrarily choose its form and enforce its use. No good can come from this (unless you’re part of that centralized authority, of course).

    Many of you all probably have already, but I recommend reading, What Has Government Done to Our Money” (audio) by Murray Rothbard. If you haven’t read/listened to it yet, it will surely give you a new perspective.


  • Russ Hallberg Jr

    Abolish the FED? This could be Abe Lincoln’s blog. That was the motive behind his assassination, as well as many other assassinations. The Bank of Rome begat the Bank of England, which begat the Federal Reserve. The owners of the FED are undisclosed, but the FED reports to the Bank of International Settlements, the BIS. All 144 Central Banks report to the BIS. This was true during WWII and the Cold War!

    Almost the entire planet is under the BIS thumb. The Rothschilds are “keepers of the Vatican Treasury”. With the history of assassinations, i isn’t difficult to tell who is the boss.

  • Don’t merely complain. Close that account and set up your own bank with your own money. Any group of 10 people worth 20 million each could start their won TRANSPARENT Peoples’ Bank. That would hurt the existing opaque banks much more than this new fresh and people run one. And make sure that highest paid officers do not get more than 3 times average national wage. Any financially inclined Hollywood ‘stars’ interested to lead the charge? Kim Basinger how about giving banking another shot, will save your face and perhaps regain your lost ‘Finance Mojo’? Arnold Scwarzeneggar? You terminated the ppl of California long enough as a ‘Suit’ Governor, how about terminating THE SYSTEM for a change?

    TO CITIZENS OF USA * IMPORTANT STRATEGY * Your last chance to change the USA

    VOTING STRATEGY : When in doubt, vote only for Joe Publics who are worth no more than 200K, also see the pledge/questionairre below and ask your MP candidate or Assemblyman candidate, current MP or Assemblyman to sign with a cam taking down the signing in the presence of as many media reporters or people as possible :


  • Ron Paul demonstrates a constitutional honesty not apparent in the other candidates… of course the mainstream media ignores him.

  • Exactly: END THE FED!!! It can’t be “reined in”, because it is not even a government agency, but a conglomerate of international bankers who are used to giving orders, not taking them.

    Moreover, it was imposed on the American people through fraud and chicanery; therefore all its holdings should be confiscated and given back to the American people as partial reparation for the incredible amount of misery it has caused.

  • PJ London

    Keep Ron Paul Out (of small aeroplanes)
    Don’t let him visit a theatre, and I keep him away from Dallas

  • Dave Mowers


    Don’t end the FED, change its’ policies/priorities so that SMALL BUSINESS AND INDIVIDUALS GET ALL THE BENEFITS OF ACCESS TO ENDLESS CASH FOR BUSINESS. That is the root of the problem, the rich get everything at your expense. When Wall Street created derivatives they were creating fantasy credit lines designed to pay off- except no one who participated actually had the money so they had to have taxpayers bail them out. Wouldn’t YOU like to write fantasy contracts and when you can’t pay have someone else pay for you?

  • Donald

    My personal opinion is defenitely end the Fed, americans have been asleep at the wheel, to busy with their electronic devises to pay attention to what is really important, take away a kids video games, a teenagers cell phone and ipad and he will notice, he will scream bloody murder.
    What we need is for the citizens of this country to be up in arms over the Obama administration that is taking away all our rights and freedoms, he needs to be impeached NOW, this new world order is to make slaves of all of us, they will tax us into oblivion, we will be working for them, this is so they can maintain their control over the masses, the puppet master’s have a time frame for all this to happen, do not be surprised if there is no election for president, all Obama has to do is declare martial law, and it’s over for us, he will be the dictator he already is, he disregards the constituion as if it were toilet paper, wake up people, you needs to wise up every person you know to what is going on, Ron Paul would be the only way for us to take back our country, if that doesn’t work, then we need to hit the streets, before the Obama regime has us living in the streets.

  • whiteyward

    Capitalism has failed. The new alignments being made are the basic Fascism model. Our outlook includes living in High tech hovels as landless serfs paying Rent to the corporations. Yeomen farmers like in all the other peasant countrys.

    • olde reb

      Capitalism has failed only in that mercantile control has been usurped by an unidentified oligarchy who hold shares of the corporate entity known as the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve system. The 12 FR banks (each incorporated with shares owned by commercial banks) have been identified to be privately owned by the courts—for the issues before the courts; corporate owners of the BOG have only been deduced. The unidentified owners are assumed to be recipients of most of $8.4 trillion handled by the FRBNY from the auctions of Treasury securities. Ref. RIP OFF BY THE FEDERAL RESERVE ; http://www.scribd.com/doc/62167283

      That mercantile control as manifested in the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) directs government contracts to favored recipients who fund the CFR and other required programs. Capitalism has been reduced to Fascism. It is the Fed that is producing the effects you lament.

    • Bob

      Ron Paul never said that you moran [sic] but even if he did, who wants to live in a country where you are a “terrorist” until it can be proven that you are guilty of a lesser crime. This insanity has to stop.

        He said exactly that during one of the debates. I watched it myself. I was a big fan of his until then.

        Not sure what you’re referring to with the “terrorist” comment, unless you’re talking about The Patriot Act.

    • Dave

      Dr Paul never said any such thing. Please educate yourself before lying about this man.

  • olde reb

    Why should we end the Fed?? How about the $8.4 trillion received by the FRBNY from the Treasury’s securities auctions in 2010 that was hidden from Congress as detailed in CRIMES OF THE FEDERAL RESERVE posted at http://www.scribd.com/doc/62167283 . The courts have identified all profit of the Fed belongs to the government. Hiding money that belongs to the government is a crime (five years per count).

  • Banderman

    When in modern history have American citizens ever had to contemplate the notion their own government (public servants, nothing more) would go after its citizens when said government realized aforementioned citizens were waking up to the lies and shams that have been perpetrated on them for so many years? It appears the ‘war on terror’ has turned out to be a ‘war on American citizens’ as we have had to pay the price for the acts of alleged terrorists in so many ways obvious to anyone living and breathing on the planet since 911. Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness? Sounds like a cliche in this day and age. Embrace it. Demand it. Live it.

  • Rocketman

    As much as I would love to see Ron Paul become president, I know that it just isn’t going to happen. The puppetmasters will never allow someone who isn’t under their control to gain the oval office. My suggestion is when you step into the voting booth in November 2012 to only vote for candidates from the Libertarian, Constitution or Green parties and never a Republican or Democrat. Paul isn’t going to be the republican nominee. It will either be Romney (who the establishment wants) or Perry. They will find a way to keep Paul out.

  • Kevin Beck

    The Fed had a purpose: Create potential for corruption. That was the one implied purpose it has lived up to. Otherwise, its near-100 year record is an amazing demonstration of living up to expectations: It has a near-100% record of mediocrity.

    If anyone in the private sector had this unenviable record, they would be permanently unemployable. But with a government agency, it follows the Reagan motto: There is nothing so permanent as a temporary government program.

  • Archie1954

    Don’t forget that a majority of Americans were only too happy to attack Afghanistan and Iraq and occupy them. So you might say the country got what it deserved. Now that the wars are destroying the financial capability of the US and the economy has cratered, everyone suddenly wants out of the Middle East. Sorry much like the signs you see when shopping, “beautiful to look at, delightful to hold, of you drop it consider it sold”. Well the US dropped both countries and now owns the result.

  • Open Parachute

    Ron Paul on how he would save the uninsured. http://youtu.be/vy7hIVGxgQU
    Ron Paul is America’s leading voice for limited, constitutional government, low taxes, free markets, sound money, and a pro-America foreign policy.

  • Bev

    Dennis Kucinich’s NEED Act, the National Emergency Employment Defense Act, nationalizes money (it does not nationalize banks) so that currency is Debt Free to spend on jobs for an infrastructure rebuild. He is working on this now.

    Ron Paul’s policies would make Ron Paul rich, given his gold /miners portfolio. Gold as currency or backing the dollar with gold (what looks like the plan since 2007 / 2008 with a new $100 dollar design, not yet distributed, having many gold symbols and revolutionary language. What are they waiting for). So assume the government is prepared to back the currency with gold. Which Paul will audit….perhaps.

    But, make sure that the currency is NOT DEBT currency still created by private profiteers, the banks or the FED.

    If it is gold backed DEBT money, we will be even worse off.

  • Tom Rankin

    Audit the Fed.
    End the Fed.
    Prosecute the Fraud.

    Free Market:
    Capitalism should not be condemned, since we haven’t had capitalism. A system of capitalism presumes sound money, not fiat money manipulated by a central bank. Capitalism cherishes voluntary contracts and interest rates that are determined by savings, not credit creation by a central bank. It’s not capitalism when the system is plagued with incomprehensible rules regarding mergers, acquisitions, and stock sales, along with wage controls, price controls, protectionism, corporate subsidies, international management of trade, complex and punishing corporate taxes, privileged government contracts to the military-industrial complex, and a foreign policy controlled by corporate interests and overseas investments. Add to this centralized federal mismanagement of farming, education, medicine, insurance, banking and welfare. This is not capitalism!

    I’m a veteran & want to see Obama out of office. He’s breaking/not enforcing our laws. No matter who goes into office, i hope he will bring our troops home & secure our boarders. The illegals & terrorists are invading our country. Illegals are committing rape, robbery, murder battery & drug dealing in the U.S. Now, the illegals are using americans funds causing a bigger debt. We need someone in office to enforce our laws before its too late. Even the military want to come home & be with there families. Tell congress/president what you want. 70% of americans want our troops home. 72% of americans want illegals out & secure our boarders. We are the majority of the voters & THIS country must do what the majority of the people say & want. Remember, this is our country, take it back from the american trators that our holding office.
