frayed: that quote used to be in my signature...go voltaire!
but back on topic....
Grady- I think you have a flair for the dramatic. Loyal Americans must pull for our survival? I don't think anyone in this country is pulling for our
survival, I think we're pulling for our TV's, waterbeds, and starbucks.
Land of the free, home of the latte.
Protect America's right to pay $5 for coffee- go bomb Iraq.
OK, my Starbucks schpeal is over. But really, when you say "pull for our survival," what survival are you talking about? I don't know a soul that
is afraid to o to work in the morning because they might be bombed. If we let the threat or terror rule our lives, what makes us any different than
the oppressed nations we're supposed to be attemting to free?
but I do agree entirely- blaming the President for every problem in our lives is absurd. I love the principle of this nation, I just don't agree with
how it is being run. However, I cannot blame my personal struggles on the back of a single man from Texas. I can't blame them on anyone. But I can
attempt to change the cause, and that I will do. Give me liberty, or give me death isn't up to date. I'm not going to sit around and wait for
liberty to be given. I will however, sacrific my life and die to attain it.
