Yes Carol, you've made that statement before with differentiating between wars that were thrust upon us and wars of choice. Both parties are equally guilty with the Mexican American War and Vietnam belonging to Democratic administrations and the Spanish American war and the Iraq War belonging to Republicans. Our involvement in WWI was the result of German attacks on our vessels and the attempted collusion of the Germans with the Mexican government to regain territories in the south west. We were attacked during WW II and Germany declared war on the US. If the US hadn't entered into the war in Europe the result would have been not the Nazi domination of Europe but the Soviets overrunning the continent having defeated the Germans at Stalingrad and heading west before any Americans had set foot on European soil. If we had not intervened in Korea the entire peninsula would have been under communist rule and threatened our gains in that part of Asia.<quoted text>
The majority of wars in American history were started under Democrat leadership.
The majority of the wealthiest on Capital Hill are Democrats.
Actually Carol the two wealthiest members of Congress are Rep Michael McCaul R Texas with assets valued at $294.21million and Rep Darrell Issa R California with assets of $220.4 million. John Kerry comes in third with $193.07 million. A check of the 50 wealthiest members of congress lists 32 Republicans and 18 Democrats so your statement is false. There's nothing wrong with being wealthy, it's how you get there.
