I'm not sure how can qualify your statement. I'm sure people care, regardless of political flavor.
Truth is, the antiwar movement in America died when Obama took office in 2008.
Media blackout doesn't translate to a movement dying. Many Democrats did stop protesting/vocally oppositional because very early on Obama promised to
end the wars. Which technically
he did and is doing. Sadly, that is good enough for some.
The Global Warming angst also died out with Obama's election and re-election.
Also very incorrect.
Sure, there are occasional pockets of revolution. Every once in a while the lamestream mainstream media runs an antiwar story. Mostly the lamestream
mainstream media says nothing about the war.
Somewhat true but the media has changed, become increasingly corporate.
Welfare has spread throughout the land.
Now you're simply using something that has more to do with the economy than any ideals. Pure hyperbole.
You've got to give Obama credit, he's done a helluva job for the Pentagon and for big oil.
Yes he has, I wish more people could see that.
The vet wrote a scathing letter to Bush and Cheney. I'd of thought he'd at least send a copy to Obama.
Perhaps he should have but his anger stems from the lies that got us into the Iraq war.
knowing full well that there isn't a squat's worth of the antiwar movement left to do anything about protesting the war.
Dang. People don't even want to be bothered about global warming any more.
Again very untrue.
Albeit, if a Republican is elected in 2016...the whole antiwar/global warming melee will be resurrected.
Possibly. Within any ideology there's an element of the uninformed who are easily appeased. It could easily be said that the Right was far less
concerned about erosion of rights then than they are now or would be under a Republican President. Many people within the Republican Party also assume
that it's the party of smaller government because it's self proclaimed, reality is different though.
