Liberty has a high price. A fiscal price out of our economy. A human cost from our population. A loss of respect from the rest of the world for our policy methods.
All from national arrogance expressed by our leadership.
This money is only a short term payment. As Seymour Hersh has written in The New Yorker, the administration has even wider plans that will cost us even more in the currency of dollars, lives, and respect. Ugh.
