Open Letter

Dear Senator Reid,

Please do not give in to the President by approving more money for Wars in the Middle East. It's ludicrous to think that we have to rush around kissing up to him when all you have to do is say NO and keep on saying NO. The best thing you can do for "the troops" is to make sure they're coming home as soon as possible. This administration has not only created a complete fiasco in Iraq and Afghanistan, it did so on purpose, and with the express purpose of shocking Iraq into giving up it's oil and beggaring it's populace.

This is not the way to win friends and influence nations. This is not the way to balance our budget. This is not the way to save us from Global meltdown.

We cannot wait another year while you all go around *sskissing the prez. We need to get out of Iraq yesterday, and heal our nation, and put the criminals who are now in office, in prison. If you can't do that, we need to get someone in who can. It's that important and it's that simple.

Live up to your oath of office. Live up to the principles that America has always held dear.

Thank You
SB Gypsy

Another Liberal against Democracy in Iraq?

What ever happened to old time liberalism?

Let every nation know, whether it wishes us well or ill, that we shall pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe, in order to assure the survival and the success of liberty. - John F. Kennedy

Liberalism used to mean the extension of self-government - by any means necessary.

What it means now is - let the dictators have their way, because democracy is too expensive.


It is one of the reasons I vote straight Republican these days despite being brought up as a Democrat and having been a Trot in my youth.

Despotism By Default is the new liberal motto. I know you are against despotism - who isn't - it is just that you prefer to do nothing.

It is not the liberalism I was brought up with.

I don't see any "democracy" happening in the midst of the civil war that is Iraq, even with the bogus "surge". To the contrary, what overtakes Iraq at this moment is a fanatic and destructive theocracy. If you think that what's going on there is something that we should be proud of then you, sir, should be ashamed.

Iraq wasn't our foe, and Iran got nothing for immediately supporting us after 9/11 except a place on our enemies list. WE are exporting torture all over the world, WE are tearing down nations who didn't oppose us in order to steal their assets. I don't call that "extending self government" I call that rape and pillage. It's not congruent with the ideals that our nation was founded upon.

Just like AA, if you cannot even admit it, you certainly cannot heal yourself.

Despotism By Default is the new liberal motto. I know you are against despotism - who isn't - it is just that you prefer to do nothing.
...and keep your strawmen out of the argument - "doing nothing" is almost as bad as raping and pillaging. I want the criminals that are driving the global shock and pillage campaign arrested, tried, and thrown in the deepest dungeon. I want terrorists fought, arrested, tried in open court for all to detest, and thrown in the dungeon with said govt criminals. I want our Constitution honored and upheld by the people who have been elected to do that, and I want our rights and liberties restored.

And then I want the billions that we are giving to Saudi Arabia and Pakistan and all the rest of the totalitarian bastards out there to be redirected to support and spread the life-affirming and life giving technologies that will help the poor all over the world to rise up out of poverty and privation to build vigorous and thriving economies.

Go ahead and vote republican, my friend - by that I will know that you are just as much a sadistic pervert and anti democratic authoritarian as the rest of the reTHUGGlickin' criminals in our government.

Well said. And M. Simon, thanks for the JFK quote, we have to remember there was once someone like this.
