(Jacob Bruns, Headline USA) America’s ruling class on both sides of the aisle will profit immensely from getting America into a war that they and their children won’t suffer for, Big League Politics reported.
After Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy addressed Congress earlier this week, several career politicians exclaimed that America must get more heavily involved in the Ukraine–Russia skirmish on the other side of the globe.
The t-shirt clad Zelensky demanded full American support in the skirmish, which would likely cause dangerous escalation.
As a bastion of sanity, Rep. Marjorie Taylor-Greene argued that America should avoid going to war simply at the behest of the elites and their financial and global interests.

“It is time for a more level-headed approach to foreign engagements from America’s elites, and time we loosened the military-industrial complex’s stranglehold on our politicians and our policymaking,” Greene said.
She also suggested that, though she opposes Vladimir Putin, it is not America’s duty to spend the money of its shriveling middle class in order to police the world.
“There is no doubt that Putin’s actions in Ukraine are despicable and evil. We weep when we see images of men, women and children wounded or killed… But we cannot and we must not allow our compassion to blind us to reason and common sense,” she continued.
“It concerns a country in which Joe Biden, Nancy Pelosi and Mitt Romney have direct financial interests—a country whose government only exists because the Obama State Department helped to overthrow the previous regime,” Greene concluded.
