I don't know what I am, but I know why.

My teenage years were during the Iraq war, and I did not understand why everybody was so eager to support the war even though it had an highly falsible premise (unlike Afghanistan), and why everybody was so eager to turn America into a police state. And then Obama took office with promises of change, but went further into the police state.
