You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

We cannot go around and bomb everybody that hates us, it is not realistic. There will always be people that hate America. Unfortunately, the majority of people who hate America right now are not people who hate it "just because". They hate America because we cause them to hate us. Every time we play wack a mole with terrorism and use drones to take people out, there is collateral damage, innocent civilians. When we kill them, we make more enemies then we kill. It perpetuates violence. Obama has done too much working to go after terrorists. So that is why I voted yes. We have been entrenched in this war for so long, and every year the attacks get worse, the ideologies get more extreme, we spend more money, and lose more sons and daughters. Maybe we need a new policy, one that fosters peace. How about listen to the people who want to kill us and consider their grievances instead of bombing the sugar out of them. You cannot combat violence with more violence, it will only perpetuate itself.

Did you serve in Iraq or Afg? I'll tell you what, nothing made me more happy when Obama changed the rules of engagement to where we couldn't shoot the enemy until they shot at us first. That 'wait to get shot' rule REALLY saved lives. (Sarcasm, over 70% of the deaths in Afghanistan happened under Obama since 2001 because of that rule change).
