I am very thankful we have been safe in the U.S. for many years. Thank you all for your service & God bless. The extremists have been at war with us for far longer. There goal is not to defeat us, but to DESTROY us.

Does it? I bet if your candidate affected the exact same policies, but from the opposite side of the aisle, you'd back him unconditionally. No offense intended, and I know what the responses will be, but it gets old and worn out. I gave up on party affiliations and I hope that someday all other like-minded and enlightened individuals will join in. Until that day, well...

Nicely put.

Cases in point.....

It took you that long? I gave up talking politics here and everywhere else a LONG time ago. Many people are, quite frankly, too immature when it comes to politics to have anything resembling a rational discussion, and I'd rather not deal with the headaches. I mean, here's a book where the President shows a very human side to himself, and yet, there are those who still can't resist taking pot shots at him.

It's both amazing and disheartening to see how far the level of discourse has fallen in this country over the past 15 years - not just in politics, but in general. And I fear it isn't going to get any better any time soon.

Very valid assessment. It is hard in this "chat room" age to get really good political discourse without descending into some bi partisan bickering. It's as if everyone tow's the party line. In fact, I am always amazed at the hypocrisy of people who follow either the left or right so firmly that they have no reason. Look at the people bashing Bush for going at it alone in Iraq. I bet not one of those people said a thing when Clinton went to Kosovo.

I still like to talk politics, but I just have a different view now. It actually makes the arguments more interesting.
