THE PEOPLE SPEAK – Troops should be sent in defense of country

— There is an ideology that believes everyone should have the same values toward observing restrictions that are needed in society for everyone to observe. That doesn’t sound like such a bad idea. Everyone observing and respecting the same set of values. What could be better than everyone getting along?

The problem is; socialism/communism, is trying to change the world into being controlled by one king and his favorites. That King says you will have to become Muslim. Everyone will be Muslim all over the world.

It doesn’t matter what people believe in different countries as far as religion where Islam is concerned. Everyone will have to change into a Muslim or be a second-class citizen (slave) or be killed. A very large part of the world has Christian beliefs in some form or another.

If it is so important for America to send troops to foreign countries to preserve or change controlling governments in those countries, then there should be cooperation between the countries involve. With that said, it doesn’t make sense to me for America to be changing any country into anything other than a duplicate of the most free and promising country in the world.

Ever since America established itself peoples all over the globe have come here to live because of the opportunities of pursuing their own personal goals in life. As long as they didn’t make waves that interfered with others to do the same, success was what everyone could make of it.

There shouldn’t be a need for people to be sneaking into America for opportunities not available somewhere else. Somewhere else should have opportunities based on the same ideology as our own country, so peoples of the world wouldn’t need to leave where they are for something they can get in America.

If troops need to be sent somewhere it should be to defend the most free and promising Constitution of any country that has ever existed. The United States Constitution.
