Just as the leader, PM Bibi Netanyahu, openly calls for "revenge" for the mysterious killing of three Israeli Jewish teens, calling for the death of Arabs in general and Palestinians in particular, so too our leaders call for revenge. Why other than revenge and greed did we enter Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Iran (secret incursions), Kyrgyzstan, Kazakhstan (and many other 'stans for the former USSR/Russian empire)?

America isn't a democracy. (Just look up its "electoral college"). America isn't even a "republic" (i.e., consider the treatment of Native Americans, gays, blacks, and Japanese Americans in 1942). The Americas actually run like this: The federal government gets what it wants regardless of popular vote. Thank you, G.W. Bush for showing us that in 2000 and again four years later. Nor is there equal representation. Thank you, southern states, for showing us that gays are not allowed under the 14th amendment. The U.S. Constitution is a paradox. It claims to be the "supreme law" of the land. But the federal government has laws that supersede the most powerful law of the land. Thank you, NSA and CIA, for showing us that. Therefore, if the federal government gets what it wants and can supersede the people's rights, that makes America a totalitarian government. Vote authentic left (not Democrat but Green), libertarian (not Republican or Tea), or give up citizenship before that becomes illegal.
