When will Mitt read the US Constitution?

What would Mitt do different than Hillary?

Both are Neo-Cons....blind supporters of the National Socialist Theocracy of Israel.

Support for Israel ($4 billion dollars a year) violates the 1st Amendment in the Bill of Rights and is the reason the USA was attacked on 9-11-01.

Time to cut them off!

Any further aid or support to Israel is a terrorist act and those behind it need to be punished.

No more wars for theocracies!

Alright, calm down. National Theocracy of Israel? Really? Let's try to be rational. Look at the region and the cost. Bill Clinton hand delivered over $2 billion to Poland to get them into NATO. Stop, please! Violation of the 1st ammendment?

Here's the 1st amendment...
It prohibits the federal legislature from making laws that establish religion (the "Establishment Clause") or prohibit free exercise of religion (the "Free Exercise Clause"), laws that infringe the freedom of speech, infringe the freedom of the press, limit the right to assemble peaceably, or limit the right to petition the government for a redress of grievances.

What in the world does support of Israel have to do with the 1st amendment? Are you really trying to argue "establishment of religion"? Or, are you just stupid? or beyond crazy? Israel, agree with them or not, does give us a point of stability in a less than stable region -- very established military use of foreign locations (ie. Germany, Japan, South Korea, Cuba, etc.). Now, take a deep breath and admit that you are too liberal to believe that we have actual enemies that require a military. Your entire existence must be based on a theory that if we are nice to others, they will be nice to us. WAKE UP!

You mean being nice to others doesn't work? Because I see that being the bully hasn't either!

I hope that we are not repeating history of Neville Chamberlin. Let us imagine a time before 9/11/01. No one was too concerned about a radical named Osama bin Ladan or al-Qaida. Evidence shows that one U.S. Colonel was concerned and his name was Olly North. Now, does history repeat?

Yes!

Shall we attempt to repeat history from -60 years; or, should we learn from the past?

Let's imagine that Hitler really was a lying conniving piece o' crap!(What, he was)

Let's look at the international response during the time -- Hitler is'nt so bad; we should give him some latitude.

Where did that decision lead the world? The loss of ~11million lives?

Now, let us be friends with Islamic extremists that want every American dead and have declared that Israel should no longer exist.

Yes, let's wipe out the U.S. and Israel -- that would leave no more 'mean' people in the world and peace and prosperity would prevail.

Take a pill, try again, your logic fails and failed 60 years ago. Problem with liberals is that they refuse to learn from the past and think all of their thoughts are 'new' & forward looking'. We've already been there, pal. Didn't work the 1st time and it won't work this time. There are times where you just have to go in and kill people and blow-up things (much higher probability of working than speaking nicely). Teddy Roosevelt tried to explain this to you -- you should have taken history. This has and always will be the way of men. The danger is a weakness, never a strength. The participant that exudes his weaknesses will only win if his weaknesses are stronger than his opponent's skills. We need to survive as Americans (according to most timetables our reign is nearing completion -- largest threat is liberal thought) if you don't want a strong military -- leave. Weak minded individuals and those that seek entitlements are a cancer which will consume a nation.
