    I get the concept of supporting our troops and not supporting the war, but I'm confused. How can you "support" someone if you don't agree with what they're telling you? I mean, you can obay them, but isn't supporting someone...well... supporting what they're doing? lol.

    Oh, good point. LOL! I meant would DO whatever my commanders would tell me to do. I wouldn't "support" it. Thanks for pointing out that I didn't make sense. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img]

    After WWII, plenty of German war criminals said they were just following orders. It's no defense.

    Yeah, I was thinking of adding that caveat. I would do whatever my cmmanders told me to do unless it was on the level of genocide or something obviously illegal.

    The only thing i want to say is that my current state senetor ran his election basicly on the phrase "we must stand with the presedent during the time of war" and anyone who disagrees is well... Un american. That also happens to include every policy he touts.

    So i say, forget about the presedent, Whats with the voters to buy into such a statement? HOW DID HE WIN? IF your with bush or against bush it doent matter, how can you vote for a guy who was basicly shooting down every dissenting opinion from the presedent as um american -"we must stand togeathr at at atime of war"- Forget about the presedent. Whats with my states voters? I mean i dont care a conservative was elected, i mean, big surprise, but carried to office with statemnts like that? Is it just me who sees a problem with that? I feel we should each have our own opinion on matters.

    In several State voting booths, there was a group that hung around it and if they tought u voted against this guy they wrote down your licenceplate number as a intimidation tactic. I dont recall the police seeuing fit to intervine in that either. Whats wrong with people these days?

    "The rebels in Somalia were a real threat to this country weren't they."

    About as much as Iraq was. Sorry you and your compatriots got stuck dealing with it. There were many things I didn't like about Clinton, either, fyi. I was pretty convinced by polls taken in the military at that time that they hated him..did what he said, commander in chief, etc...but hated him. I thought his policies were good for THIS country. The rest of the world? eh. Please note he ignored the genocide in Rwanda, too, as did most everyone else. Why, I believed he stopped there once for 8 hours to apologise for ignoring the genocide. Doesn't put him high on my list of nice guys.

    thats an urban legend,
    never happened.
    its just another lie invented by liberals to make conservatives appear evil.

    and how would they know who you voted for anyway?
    "that guy looks like a hippy..get his license plate number!"
    "that guy has a briefcase, he's ok"

    you could just as easily say that liberals were writing down the license plates of people who look like they voted for G.W.
    it would work either way..
    and be a myth either way.

    please...get a grip.
    yet another example of liberals instantly believing anything they are told, and passing it along as fact, no matter how ridiculous, as long as it makes the president or republicans look bad.

    like I said..lies and fear.
    its the only tactic Democrats have left to attempt to retain their power..
    this is a perfect example of that.

    im sorry but i was there when it happened in my town. Are you suggesting i am lieing? It happened right at the town voting booth everyone saw. And despite early inaction by police both were talked to. They were a group guys just out of highschool, mostly from out of town and have been toublemakers around here for awhile now, with hazing and vandalizm. many were the same people. im not saying its a conservative anything, ive seen of liverals doing the same thing elsewhere.

    What i do NOT appreciate is being called a liar for expressing how upset i was with the practace. Houwbout you get a clue and come down and take a look for yourself? It was on the local news as well, and because several instances happened around the state. I dunno about other parts of the country, but everyone agrees thats what happened here . if you care to dsipute that go see the police records.

    Take a hint: calling someone a liar and accusing them of trying to make someone else look bad without knowing the facts of the case being cited makes you look bad yourself. I cant say how dissapointed i am of being ccalled things by someone who wasnt even there a nd just assumes someone is lieing because theyve heard of something similar before. Im not saying that in some cases it was a lie, but, please, leave theinsults and partisan comments out of it? I dont even consider myself a liveral really anymore and am dissataisfied with both parities (discusted really). I want playing partisan games but stating something that happened HERE in my small town and others trought the state that worried me. How do i know its not a like? cause I WAS THERE. Not voting but accompaning a frind who just turned 18 and was eligable to vote.

    I have no agendas to push for party gains. the only agenda i persue is my own
    that makes no logic
