When Was the Last Time a President Asked You to Do Something for Your Country?
I think Jimmy Carter was the last president who had enough guts to ask Americans to do something.
Lots of 20-year-old military volunteers--and their families--are being asked to sacrifice EVERYTHING.
What have the rest of us been asked to sacrifice explicitly?
My children are being TOLD (not asked) that they will sacrifice a lot financially. So am I, but not the current "I." The "I" who (if I live that long) will be 70 will have to sacrifice a lot, thanks for President George W. Bush and his minions.
I'm glad somebody has made a movie that asks the hard questions.
