Re: Theos-World Re: white brotherhood and war

Today I got on the Web, and wrote to all my elected representatives
and told them that I am an American Veteran of the Korean War, and
that I vote in every election, and that all those Fellow Travelers,
Socialists, and mobs that never vote, but try to influence elected
officials by Mob Rule do not represent me.

I reminded them of Neville Chamberlain who got "Peace in Our Time" by
appeasing a dictator. In his case, "Our Time" was remarkably short,
and contributed to making the war more costly to Britain, and the rest
of the world.

Let us hope that we do not have to learn the lessons of history by
repeating them.
