Did Jody steal our American Democracy and Freedom?

While our troops were deployed to fight for our freedom and democracy and that of others did “Jody” steal our own freedom? Jody is the term troops apply to those men who home in on the spouses of deployed soldiers.

So, I ask again, “while our troops are deployed defending American Democracy and freedom and that of others, did “Jody steal” ours? I think, yes!

WikiAnswers says,  “Around 1,203,640 as of January 2007” American soldiers have died defending America in all wars including the current conflicts. Of course it points out that that number may not be totally accurate. I imagine a completely accurate answer is not possible!

From the Lee, R. “The History Guy: Casualties From America’s Wars”,  I found the following statistics as of 1-21- 2007:

Below is a listing of America’s MAJOR wars and conflicts and the known casualty figures for each. Casualties are for United States and Confederate military dead and wounded only. Civilian casualties will be added later.

As I read these tables with their numbers, I am saddened and shocked. These tables represent those who have given their lives in defense of our nation, our Democracy, and our freedom!! In a single election, we, as a nation, have allowed a Socialists takeover over twenty years in the making, seize control of America without a single shot fired in defense of our nation. If the new controls over control the media, already controlled predominately by the socialists leftists and the new regulations about gun ownership are passed, then it will be very hard to take back America if we lose our ability to do so through the election process!! Think about it people, what we are silently allowing to happen in America at home, as our troops defend our nation and Democracy abroad???

I think it also behooves us as a nation to take a closer look at how the latest economic crisis at home and abroad has occurred. I do not agree with current explanations. I feel there is a lot of money at play here as part of the latest worldwide effort for a globalist economy under one government and one world court at play here, controlled by big money businesses and banks !!

  1. Jenna, thank you for your kind words. Thank you and your husband for all you have sacrificed for our country! Remember, you are not alone!

  2. So It is not just me who feels this way. I am a military wife. My husband is a blackhawk pilot and was based at Camp Victory when was in the infantry.
    I really enjoy your website.
    Thank you for everything you.
