    This is a long article - might want to print out to read at your leisure.

    When Congress Commits Treason
    By Raymond S. Kraft, New Media Journal
    February 5, 2007

    When an American political party aligns itself with the goals, hopes, and ambitions of America's enemies in a time of war, in my view there is only one word for it - Treason.

    Today, most of the "leading Democrats" in Congress are falling all over themselves to give aid, comfort, and hope, to the Jihad, the Islamic Resistance Movement, the Islamist movement for the decline and fall of Western Civilization and the ascendance of Jihadist Islam in Iraq and around the world. Ted Kennedy, Hillary Clinton, Harry Reid, and many of the rest give their assurance that with Democrats in power, America will retreat, embrace defeat, and surrender, selling their souls and their country down the river for primary votes and and trucks of money from the Pacifist Left. Here, the ignominious spectacle of Democrats selling out the future freedom of the Iraqi people for votes and dollars. Osama bin Laden once called America "a paper tiger." America's Democrats seem determined to prove him right.

    The Liberal Damnocrats are only interested in power, and they think by opposing Bush on everything they will get all of it.

    Sad that you consider the truth garbage.

    They are giving the terrorists aid and comfort by undermining the troops. How is that not treason?

    Personally I would make the case that JFKerry is guilty of treason. However, congress isn't.

    Stupid? Yeah
    Corrupt? Yeah
    Traitors? Only the junior senator from Mass IMO.

    When they work to support the goals of the enemy against their own country, as they're doing on the WOT, that's treason.

    discussing the wisdom of this administration's foreign policy is NOT undermining the troops. Here is the deal: even if the congress voted to stop all funding for the Iraq war, that vote would not "undermine the troops" in any way. It might stop their current mission, but rest assured, none of them would need their folks to send them bus fare to get home from Iraq...none of them would run out of ammunition while still in the killing zone...none of them would go hungry while still in Iraq. The only thing that is "undermined" by discussions about the war in Iraq is this administration's continued inept prosecution of this stupid war.

    Calling those who disagree with the administration TRAITORS has a very Nazi-esque feel to it.

    “Why of course the people don’t want war. Why should some poor slob on a farm want to risk his life in a war when the best he can get out of it is to come back to his farm in one piece? Naturally, the common people don’t want war: neither in Russia, nor in England, nor for that matter in Germany. That is understood. But after all it is the leaders of the country who determine the policy, and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy, or a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship…Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is to tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger.”
    Hermann Goering
