We had a choice between Obama and McCain. With McCain I figured we would continue to make war with other countries for their natural resources (and
people call Japan the bad guys for doing that). I thought that at least with Obama, being a liberal and a progressive, we would end the pointless
wars. I would've taken a bit less prosperity for that trade-off.
Boy was I suckered. Now, not only do we have less prosperity, we also have perpetual wars. I didn't really put it together then that
progressives were such warmongers. Wilson, Roosevelt, Truman, Kennedy, Johnson, Clinton, Obama...they have "out-warred" the conservatives.
And unless Ron Paul or John Huntsman win the nomination, and the presidency, it'll be the same next year as it is now. And the next. More wars. Less
prosperity because of it.
