Blame America First
Hypothetical example of usage:
One million Iraqis have died, directly or indirectly due to the US-led regime change and occupation in Iraq - and the justification for going into a war that killed 4000+ coalition troops has been proven to be entirely fabricated.
Typical blame America first liberal. This is America, don't like it then get the hell out, move to Europe, Commie!
Typical blame America first liberal. This assumes that:
(1) The person citing credible facts about the Iraq war is a 'liberal'. This is central to the modern bending of the definition of 'liberal', which ironically has allowed socialists to move in under the verbal camouflage provided by so-called 'liberalism'.
(2) That person, because they are citing credible facts and opposing the military will of their government, hates their country.
(3) That any and all 'liberals' and anti-war people hate their country. In fact, more broadly, anyone who is against the will of their government, hates their country. Interesting logical premise.
"A patriot must always be ready to defend his country against his government" - Ed Abbey
This is America. This claim seems to say that:
(1) Endless war is America.
(2) Blind conformity is America.
(3) Asking soldiers to risk their lives in obscure lands, because the government says so, is America.
...don't like it then get the hell out, move to Europe, Commie! Apart from this being incredibly naive, it also suggests:
(1) You have a privilege, not a right, to live in America. The privilege is granted based on how compliant and 'grateful' you are to your government for the freedom you have (despite that process being an extreme denial of freedom).
(2) You're letting down the great cause of America, which is to spread 'freedom' around the world, and kill all tyrants. Freedom can be spread only with your compliance. (Orwellian doublethink 'freedom', of course.)
(3) European nations are run by Commies. Can't argue with that - but if you want to find some real Commies, look no further than your own pro-war neoconservatives and their origins.
Support the war? Some tough questions you still need to answer:
How can you profess to support the troops, and claim that supporting the war is supporting the troops, when the most popular Presidential candidate (by donations) amongst the troops, was the anti-Empire Ron Paul...perhaps the troops want the war to end, do they get your support with that?
If many of the troops don't want to fight, surely the fight in question is not justified or worth the sacrifice we selfishly demand from the troops?
What would the Founding Fathers have said about the Iraq or Afghan wars, or the likely new one in Pakistan? Be honest.
I think I have some answers to that last one.
"Peace, commerce, and honest friendship with all nations – entangling alliances with none." - Thomas Jefferson
"If Tyranny and Oppression come to this land, it will be in the guise of fighting a foreign enemy." - James Madison
Homeland Security was never for the scary 'Al-Qaeda', the Islamic branch of the CIA. It's for you and all the other ordinary slaves-to-be.
So, who really blames America first? Anti-war people, who criticise the expensive Empire and unnecessary wars which are contributing to tax increases and domestic tyranny, or pro-war people, who blame American traditional values about non-interventionism every time they decide they want to start another war? Hmm.
I respect America for the principles it was founded upon; the notion that man may best govern himself, and among other ideas, the creed of non-interventionism. In that sense, the people of the world are brought together by ideals that have been, to date, best realised in the United States. Nobody hates that America, though the people of the world - including most Americans themselves - are aware that today's America is a force of global opression and Empire (with troops in most countries in the world).
This knowledge could easily lead to anti-American sentiments, which I would say are, overall, justified. But if someone says to me that America is evil, I would respond that today's "America" is not the America that was a spearhead of liberty back in the 18th and 19th centuries. It has been seized by European-based Banksters, who took it over in 1913 with their "Federal" Reserve racket, and have been slowly bringing about the destruction of America ever since, by getting it into huge sums of debt.
And as we can see, nothing racks up great national debt quite like warfare. All those interest payments billed to the taxpayer...
"War is just a racket...I believe in adequate defenses at the coastline and nothing else." - Gen. Smedley Butler
As I write this, the last minutes of 4th July tick away over here. A day to consider not what America is, but what America was - and thanks to today's revolutionaries, what it will one day be again.

And You Tell Me There's No Suppressed Technology?
It's another of those 'conspiracy theories' that good citizens don't notice. Imagine the standard of living if all the secret technology was released to the public...we'd be "free and independent" as JFK said! No more poverty anywhere! Can you imagine being sick enough to withhold such technology from society just to maintain your position of control? (Bearing in mind that we don't know just how much technological capability is being withheld, because, duh, it's secret.) What did Nikola Tesla really develop?
Individual Liberty? But that's "selfish"!
No, we need to look after each other voluntarily without having a government do all that at gunpoint. Sounds absurd at first but soon you realise that the reason it sounds so is because of the very unfree nature of our current existence. Envision greater possibilities! Ok, some kind of massive wake-up would be needed before this kind of free, responsible, uncontrollable society could emerge. And that's what we are seeing day by day in the world - a massive waking up of the previously enslaved masses (including myself I must add!)
