Pat, When were you spied on, seized, held captive and tortured? You did say "WE" implying that you were. You've heard that line so much that you're sounding like on of the Democratic parrots. All you can do is repeat what someone else said somewhere. I am a Republican, but I have to say that Bush has not been one of our better presidents, however, he is by far not the worst. Of all of our recent Presidents, Jimmy Carter has that honor with Clinton and Ford close behind. As for what you are claiming torture I have 2 things to say: 1) Consider who we are supposed to be torturing. I assume you are referring to GITMO; and 2) we are at war and according to the Geneva Convention, personnel captured on the battlefield engaging in hostile activities are considered prisoners of war and can be held for the duration of the war. Why don't you take a trip to GITMO and see exactly how the prisoners are treated and quite relying on the liberal media. Better yet, since you feel they are so mistreated, why don't you volunteer to take custody of one or two of them. I'm sure you would make them comfortable and feel welcome.

You half wit ignoramus: we have NEVER had a "democracy"?
Here's a clue: What is the SIXTEENTH word in the Pledge of Allegiance?
You HAVE heard of the Pledge of Allegiance, haven't you?
How about the U.S. Constitution? It's a thin book. Try reading it sometime; you might learn something.
One of the things you have clearly NOT figured out however comes through loud in clear in your idiotic notion " Tax those oil companies."
Corporations do not PAY taxes -- the COLLECT taxes.
If nincompoops like you succeed in efforts to pass a "windfall profit" tax on the oil companies hypocrites like YOU depend on to fill up the tank, just who do you think will pay for those new taxes when YOU pull up to the pump, eh?
All of the goodies you think you are entitled to at government expense will be inefficiently provided by credulous saps like you by more paycheck with holding ....of course this assumes you actually are capable of EARNING a paycheck and are not merely a no load free loader living at the expense of others. And from the silly things you have to say, that may not be such a red hot assumption.
