What is your hot button issue?

 We all have things we are passionate about. Things that just get you fired up and angry.

Mine is this:

 I HATE the fact that more people in America are worried about abortion/gay marriage/welfare/whatever than the wars we are in. We have killed almost 2 million people in the Middle East. These include innocent men, women, and children. Babies. Dead babies. For what? 9/11? Iraq had nothing to do with 9/11. Before 9/11, we put sanctions on Iraq and killed over 500k children with our sanctions alone.

 You are not allowed to criticize the wars in this country thanks to the war propoganda machine and the slogan, "support our troops". I feel like that is empty lip service. If people actually supported our troops, we wouldn't be sending them off to die in a foreign land, and to kill people who are not trying to take our freedoms. They don't hate us because of our freedoms, they hate us because we occupy their land and kill them. For oil and resources.

Our troops are NOT fighting for our freedom in these wars. They are used as pawns for greedy corporations. But alas, nobody cares. We'd rather fight about abortion. We'd rather fight for marriage equality, as if the suffering of other beings matters not.

Murica!

I don't think that one issue should minimize another. Even if your issue is wars, it shouldn't take away from someone else thinking that abortion, or marriage equality, or welfare isn't important. That is THEIR reality.

 I kindly disagree. If we allow wars to take over this planet (ww3 is well on it's way) then that's IT for all of us. Sure, the other issues are important too, but I think priority should be on liberty and justice, FOR ALL. We should care about all humanity, not just ourselves.
