WORLD POLICE

WORLD POLICE

For years people of a certain political persuasion both inside and outside of the USA have resented the USA’s role as the “world police”. As the citizens in the USA have become weary of bearing the sole burden of this responsibility. Now that the USA is backing out of that role who is stepping up? There is no other nation or group of nations willing or capable of doing that. No politician stays in office long if they do not support the interests of their constituents. What happens thousands of miles around the world away from you may be a tragedy, but asked if you are willing to pay to do something about it, the vote is always no, because the price is absorbent and it will involve the deaths of no telling how many of the youngest and finest your community has to offer, this has nothing to do with the lack of American patriotism. The USA has been paying this price to the resounding criticism of so many.

Speaking of price, it has been said that all America has ever asked to protect the world’s free nations was the plots of land to bury our dead. That is true and sobering, but it might not be smart, after all if the police tow your car, you have to pay for the tow plus a fine! I believe it is a good idea that America still takes the lead in protecting freedom and life, but other nations, especially the people most effected should share the burden was well. What do you think?
