Through out the history of our nation, since it?s founding in the fire of revolution in 1776, we have spent more time at war through either actual fighting or in proxy wars, than we have at peace.
We have fought wars against almost every major European power, including ones who are now our allies, such as Britain, France, Spain, Germany, Italy, as well as nations that are still not so friendly such as Russia.

"As in past years, the Golden Globes proved that studios are far less concerned about entertaining people than they with indoctrinating them. Last night’s awards were a celebration — not of America’s values, but of Hollywood’s. Projects like The Kids Are All Right, Black Swan, Glee, and others were rewarded for pushing the cultural envelope or advancing a liberal political agenda. That may be how Hollywood defines ‘success,’ but it certainly isn’t how audiences do. Neither of those films cracked the top 49 in last year’s box office. In fact, The Kids Are All Right, which is the story of two lesbians raising a family, came in 113th in ticket sales. Toy Story 3, last year’s box office winner, made 21 times more money than Kids did. What’s more, Toy Story 3‘s $415,004,880 was more than all four R-rated nominees for Best Picture combined! Audiences want to be inspired and uplifted. They don’t want to spend two hours covering their kids’ eyes and ears." – Family Research Council Tony Perkins, via a press release which notes that he didn’t even watch the show.
