We owe this man our gratitude for saving our country


For exposing the plot (of whom Prescott Bush was one member) to overthrow FDR and establish a fascist state.

As Sorghum Crow of Sorghum Crow's General Store pointed out, he was the one who wrote the amazing piece: War is a Racket.
WAR is a racket. It always has been.

It is possibly the oldest, easily the most profitable, surely the most vicious. It is the only one international in scope. It is the only one in which the profits are reckoned in dollars and the losses in lives.

A racket is best described, I believe, as something that is not what it seems to the majority of the people. Only a small "inside" group knows what it is about. It is conducted for the benefit of the very few, at the expense of the very many. Out of war a few people make huge fortunes.
Thank you, Major General Smedley D. Butler.
