End this bloody occupation

If our presence in Iraq is futile or more destructive to them and us than our absence then we must leave.

The whole world and history are looking at us now.

If we are strong, if the faith we have in our nation is strong, if what we have always told ourselves what we believed about the endurance of our constitution is strong; then we should move forward with guts.

What image do we want to leave the world and our children’s, children’s, children’s children? That of weak complacency in the unraveling of 200 years of liberty or steadfast support for what our founding fathers created and our ancestors as well as ourselves swore allegiance to.

The eyes of history are upon us and the weight of our own consciences. Will we fail at this moment of history and allow ourselves to slip ever so much more closely into an authoritarian existence. An existence we all once talked so bravely about never allowing on our shores. Or will we have the courage equal to the challenge that this moment of history has thrown upon us?
End this illegal occupation.
Restore constitutional order.
No Iran war.
Impeach the president/vice-president
We Will not be Silenced
