    for Prioria makes a good point. Drones, like money, are a tool and can be used for ill or good.
    The problem is sending warmongers, like Yoho, to Washington. When we hire "fighters," they're going to stir up trouble. "Fight them over there, so we don't have to fight them here at home," doesn't tell us that "them" is just people anywhere who disagree that the majority of the species deserve to be abused.

    The impulse to coerce is what we need to resist.

        determine the user's use.
        On the ground in Gainesville is a good place to demonstrate and get more and more extended coverage than you might get on Capitol Hill. But, Capitol Hill is where the problem lies.
        Many of the people we send to Washington are war mongers. We may send them off to make war with someone else, instead of causing trouble at home, but fighters, whether they call themselves Republicans or Democrats or Taxed Enough Already people, fight.
        Peace makers need to occupy Capitol Hill permanently.
