Americans now unwilling to fight for their country

Americans now unwilling to fight for their country?

By Eric Utter

A disheartening new poll conducted by the Echelon Insights research institute purports to show that 72% of American voters would not be willing to volunteer to fight for their country if the United States faced a major conflict.

The poll of 1,029 likely voters, obtained by Newsweek, was conducted October 23-26, in the days following the heinous Hamas terror attacks against Israel on October 7.

That the overwhelming majority of U.S. adults apparently would not be willing to serve in the United States military if the country faced another major war is concerning to say the least, especially given extreme tensions in the Middle East and surrounding Iran, Russia, China, and North Korea, the modern day Axis of Evil.

By contrast, a Daily Mail poll conducted by J.L. Partners and released early last month found that 64% of 1,000 likely voters were willing to die defending the United States-- in the event of an invasion . However, the same poll showed that fully 30% of Americans ages 18-29 would rather surrender than die fighting for their country. Moreover, the poll found that less than half – 46% to be exact-- of Democrats would be willing to die fighting for the U.S. Sadly, the latter figure is anything but a shock. Why would you lay down your life for a nation you despise, one peopled with oppressors and—Trump supporters ?!

The U.S. military continues to be represented by those from the South and rural areas…and from families who have a history of service. This, too, is unsurprising. These areas-- and families-- tend to be more conservative and Republican. And patriotic. They are less likely to be entitled and bitter.

No sane person likes war or looks forward to dying in battle, but, as someone once noted: If you have nothing to die for, you have nothing to live for. Sometimes there has to be something greater than one’s self.

So let’s take a look at why we won’t fight.

Here are 21 reasons, some admittedly tied together.

  1. Nearly all of us have become soft and spoiled by our relative wealth and ease.

  2. As such, we tend to be extremely entitled.

  3. Our kids have been indoctrinated, taught to disdain the country by their schools.

  4. Leftist identity politics is tearing us apart. Rather than a “we are all Americans” mentality bringing us together with shared values, ownership, and pride (E pluribus unum) we have been deliberately splintered into countless groups, tribes, and classes (E unum pluribus?).

  5. To that end, the media incessantly focuses on our differences and highlights any act of bigotry. Or makes one up.

  6. White people/colonizers/Founders have been branded as bad, racist, misogynistic, homophobic, transphobic, etc., courtesy of The 1619 Project, CRT, the metoo movement, et al., ad nauseum.

  7. There has been a pronounced and continuing loss of religious belief and church attendance, along with a consequent loss of Judeo-Christian values.

  8. There has been a significant loss of belief in free markets and the capitalist economic system, especially among the young…also due to “institutions of higher learning.”

  9. There has been a loss of belief in the benefits of freedom of speech/assembly/religion, the right to bear arms, and other rights the Founders felt were paramount—and inviolate.

  10. There has been a stunning decline in Americans’ knowledge of American history. Schools no longer emphasize the teaching of history, unless it is fake history such as The 1619 Project. Many colleges no longer even offer courses on actual American History, Western Civ, or the classics.

  11. There is certainly little knowledge of the history of the rest of the world as regards slavery, bigotry, racism, misogyny, the devastating results of communism, etc. And no dissemination of any of these topics.

  12. There is an extreme dearth of knowledge of past societies, their forms of government, and how those governments may have aided—or more often decimated—the hopes, dreams, and well-being of the citizens over which they ruled.

  13. There is a near total lack of familiarity of – and appreciation for – the concepts of Natural Law and Natural Rights…the defining difference between the United States and every other nation in the history of the world.

  14. A growing “better dead than red” mentality (that is, an inversion of the old “better red than dead” excuse for joining communism), coupled with a belief that physical violence is always wrong. (Unless it is directed at unborn babies or ■■■■■ of course.)

  15. A pseudo form of hyper-tolerance; tolerance considered a value above all others. (Except when dealing with unborn babies or â– â– â– â– â– â– 

  16. A lack of familiarity and experience with firearms, vehicles, machinery, etc., and a desire to largely stay apart from them. (Completely opposite of American youth’s attitude from the Revolutionary War through Vietnam.)

  17. Helicopter parenting, which prevents kids from experimenting, “inventing,” and developing a spirit of adventure.

  18. The attacks on “toxic masculinity” and the simultaneous feminization and infantilization of society.

  19. Some too distracted by watching sports, streaming television shows, video games, gambling, social media, and porn to dedicate the time and energy to much of anything else.

  20. Too many consumed with “self-medication” via pot, alcohol, fentanyl, opioids, etc.

  21. Too many overweight and out of shape. (See 19 and 20 above.)

Is it any wonder that an ill-educated, largely ignorant, out of shape people who have been told that the U.S. is evil – and who have lost belief in anything but themselves and their specific peer group — are reluctant to fight for their country? That they are not particularly patriotic? The question is how could it be other than thus?

I am going to somewhat disagree with #1 and #2. All the rest… yea.

Many Americans (intelligent ones of course, but even the dumbest ones) finally figured out that the country is not being run by Americans per se, but an alien entity who only pretend to be Americans, because their true loyalty is to a small country somewhere in the Middle East.

As for #6, it is not unusual that the original founders belong to a different race/nationality/tribe. So it doesn’t matter.

Russia, for example, was founded by Scandinavians, or Swedes who called themselves “Rus.”
The first emperor of China was a white man from Central Asia who hated Confucianism.
France was founded by a Germanic tribe who called themselves “Franks,” thus the name of the country “France.”


I think its a bit of a misnomer or misleading that if America becomes embroiled in a foreign war at the behest of the elites that we as Americans are fighting for their country. If we were invaded and taken over that would be an entirely different narrative. However the latter is pretty much whats happening with China Joe currently and they (China) don’t need to fire a single shot!

Lookout !!! You maybe a DOMESTIC TERRORIST and the FBI and the US AG tapping your phone and knocking on your door.

Qin Shi Huang was the founder of the Qin dynasty and the first emperor of a unified China. Rather than maintain the title of “king” borne by the previous Shang and Zhou rulers, he ruled China from 221 to 210 BC as the first “emperor” of the Qin dynasty.

The first written records for the history of France appeared in the Iron Age. What is now France made up the bulk of the region known to the Romans as Gaul. Greek writers noted the presence of three main ethno-linguistic groups in the area: the Gauls , the Aquitani, and the Belgae . The Gauls, the largest and best attested group, were Celtic people speaking what is known as the Gaulish language. Over the course of the first millennium BC the Greeks, Romans and Carthaginians established colonies on the Mediterranean coast and the offshore islands. The Roman Republic annexed southern Gaul as the province of Gallia Narbonensis in the late 2nd century BC, and Roman Legions under Julius Caesar conquered the rest of Gaul in the Gallic Wars of 58–51 BC. Afterwards a Gallo-Roman culture emerged and Gaul was increasingly integrated into the Roman

In the later stages of the Roman Empire, Gaul was subject to barbarian raids and In the later stages of the Roman Empire, Gaul was subject to barbarian raids and migration, most importantly by the [Germanic] Franks .

Yes, their chieftain was Charles the Great or Charlemagne who ruled roughly what is France today and gave his territory a distinct Germanic touch, different from, let’s say, Italy.

In Britany (a peninsula that sticks out into the North Sea) today, they still speak a Celtic language which can be understood by the Welshmen in Britain.

There are at least three cultural layers in France.
Celtic, Roman and Germanic (in chronological order).
We don’t know who inhabited France before the Celts. Probably the same people who built the Stone Henge in southern England.

Both Israel and Ukraine are looking more and more like America’s problems.

No wonder less and less Americans want to fight for Uncle Sam. (Maybe this figure is alread dead)

Israel is caught lying again. Ukraine is in the hospis.

Israel is caught lying again


So says the morons without a shred of proof.

Quite the well.

Nope no weapons there.

Like Larry Johnson points out, Israel placed their weapons there for the world to see.

In containers with “English” signs (which average Israelis and Arabs can’t read).

There’s no cure for stupid.

Israel wants to steal more land. First Israel will flatten Gaza. End of the story.

The US is supporting this kind of terrorist state. Who wants to serve in the US military?

I typed out a response… then, deleted it. I’m not even going to bother. Suffice it to say that my grand fathers would be extremely disappointed with the pussy nation we have become.

I am a 3rd generation 101st, how do you think my ancestors would feel? Almost everybody in my family served since the beginning of time. We don’t have causes that are worthy anymore, just ones contrived by the rich elite and bankers. Peace is the true prize in the bigger picture.


We don’t have causes that are worthy anymore, just ones contrived by our government.

Our dear leaders got us out of Iraq, Afghanistan, to land us in Syria, The ME, Ukraine all in the name of US Imperialism. Next up China and Taiwan,

American imperialism is the expansion of American political, economic, cultural, media and military influence beyond the boundaries of the United States). It may include imperialism through outright military conquest; gunboat diplomacy, unequal treaties, subsidization of preferred factions, regime change, etc. We use them all.

There is never a justification for war but our species isn’t evolved enough to respect that spiritual calling!


There are space wars. Star Wars is not a fiction.

If advanced beings engage in wars, well, what should humans, who are less developed and yet call themselvs Homo sapiens, do?
