Dang, there is nothing wrong with being anti-war, but we all need to realize the fact that it is sometimes necessary. Can you imagine what the world would be like had this country not stood up against Nazi Germany and Japan? I understood and agreed with going into Afghanistan after 911, Iraq? No, that was BS. Iran Iraq Iran Iraq, our Government has been supporting one or the other for years. They sort of kept each other in check and gave a buffer of sorts between them and The United States. God be with our troops where ever they are, but don't put them in harms way without a damn good reason. I am a former para-medic USAF.

First off, Go Army! 5 of us were born on a base somewhere. My point to BF was the 60's crowd are the John Kerry's and CEO's of today. They are either retired or getting ready to retire. They became the "establishment" of today.

Sure health care will increase, but the so-called Affordable Health Care law is unconstitutional as well as unsustainable. No, I have absolutely no faith in Obama, except to make things worse, just like Bush.
I think the "voter fraud" issue is a red herring. Just look at the candidates that we are forced to choose from. Obama's past 4 1/2 years has been nothing more than a continuation of the Bush regime.
Look at the miserable excuses for candidates that the Republicans have put up. McCain is nothing but a closet Democrat that would have lost in 2008 with or without Palin. If anything, it looked like he threw the election.
Mitt Robme is just another rich liberal hypocrite who doesn't inspire confidence in anyone. Just think, in 2016 we have "what difference does it make" Benghazi Hillary to look forward to. Now that old hag should really
inspire confidence, right?. I wouldn't vote for that crooked old pig even
to win a prize at a dog show.
Seriously, who ever is responsible for choosing the trash that we are stuck with on voting day, couldn't possibly scrape any closer to the bottom of the barrel.
I meant to respond earlier. I'm sure you're wrong about voter registration and the red herring thing. While we may not have many quality candidates running for office, I believe voter suppression and gerrymandering is real, especially here in Texas where Republicans fear that they will eventually lose their grip on this state. This no doubt applies to some other states as well.

Do we really have 902 pages of comments about Governor Perry? The religious and political debates on this forum are just ridiculous. Some people on here spend more time talking about the most meaningless things than anyone I've ever seen in my life.

Gerrymandering is very real, and both parties are guilty of it. Both parties live in fear of losing their grip on the states they control. The only thing neither party is guilty of is careing even a little bit about the American people. Money and power for them and their contributers. THAT IS A FACT!

Good comeback. Just more meaningless drivel on a 902 page thread. Judge a person by the fact that they root for a certain baseball team. That'll teach 'em.

"redneck textard buddies?"

Whathehell is that? Redneck is a symbol of religion, not backwood stupidity.

Textard, not sure what you mean by that. I don't text anyone, too hard to see the keys.

Buddy? No, you're no buddy of mine.

Guess you must be talking out your azz.

You think Christians are shitty? Christians believe in the law of God. You disagree with God?

Other countries are none of our business, unless they ask for emergency help.

We should be minding our own business then, we might not be so hated in the world, to warrant attacks. Ron Paul is right about that.
