My thanks is not so much directed at *you* per se, but moreso at the idea that you spoke your mind. You spoke your mind rather than remaining quiet, knowing most "decent people" wouldn't agree with you.
people should always speak their mind. i know i do
That takes cajones, my friend.
maybe. or just not caring what people think
I do realize you are not necessarily pro torture. Neither am I. I simply see it as an unfortunate tool that at times is a necessity. Just as you said, why is torture a big no-no, yet carpet bombing, drone strikes, and bunker-busters are acceptable?
The point is that I live in a democracy as well. There are things that can be done from the inside. I'm sure the grass roots of the party structure works in a similar manner in the good ol' US of A.
