Hi my Russian friend, and Paulette (my cleansing friend),
I ran for congress this year as a third party candidate and was trying to give the voters a choice of someone who opposed the war. I marched in an anti war rally and during a debate made sure the people in the audience understood my opposition. My "Repulicrat" opponents said that they had faith that George had a smoking gun. George has since said he does not need a smoking gun
This experience taught me a lot. We Americans are good hearted, but we are huge hyporcrits. Our country is unfortunately run by those who buy our politicians off by giving campaign funds, and our polticians (no offense paulette, But George Bush is the worse) spend all their time trying to pay back those that gave to their campaigns.
Our politicians now control the media. Rusfox, you are 100% correct. Americans have no idea of the atrosities we are commiting around the world to other countrys. We just don't believe we are capable. If you read the book, "how washington really works" the first chapter deals with how politicians control the media. What happens is that the reporters that cover congress and the president, get all the perks of politicians. The get to go golfing, eat with them, special parking and such. If a reporter writes a bad story about the president, then that reporter will not be allowed back. Since this reporter is no longer allowed in the whitehouse or in congress, the paper they work for fires them. The news stories we are getting now are worthless.
The U.S has some of the worst human rights violations in our own country. Who are we to judge Iraq?
(Blacks, indians, othe minorities)
This is definitly about Oil and George taking care of his buddies.
Paulette, I don't mean to question you politically, I'm glad that you care. Please pay attention and I think you will be sickened. I voted for george too and that gives me nightmares that I was so blind, but our choices were so bad.
Rusfox, please don't think all us Americans are bad. We are just being manipulated. We work hard, are over taxed. Because of that we don't have time to get involved. huge mistake.
