Fact Or Fiction?
Oh no... not in AMERICA!

Imagine this news article ---

US Troops Fire On Unarmed Civilians
4 dead 1,000 wounded

Supported by tanks and machine guns, US troops opened fire on unarmed US civilians, mostly combat veterans.

Led by an ambitious officer, and considered by many a rising star in military circles, General XXXXXX ordered fixed bayonets and tear gas against the protesters, who were marching to receive their wartime bonus money promised by Congress.

It has been widely circulated in Washington that the President personally ordered the military action as the marchers posed "a threat to public order" and his own personal safety.
Think I'm making this up ---- or that this could never happen in America? Research "The Bonus Army" of the 1930's. Don't kid yourself. It happened once, it could happen again.

Enjoy your Independence Day. While you can.

Yep--and it was this same president, popular, a Democrat, who kept talking about things like the four freedoms, who ordered american citizens, and legal aliens who had lived and worked her for years, to be interned in camps, and that the circumstances should be such that they lost much of their property in the process.

Come to think of it, it was a wildly popular democrat who sent the five Civilized nations on the Trail of tears--over the objections of the supreme court.

Something about wildly popular democratic presidents makes me nervous.
