    For most of us, just answering that Obama is like Bush on steroids explains it pretty well. This goes a bit further and for me, answers the question with implications for politicians of all stripes. The whole article is worth reading, I'm just posting the issue that keeps recurring:

    I don't believe that.

    I do not believe that the masters are remotely interesting in protecting us or our children (indeed this nation itself) from harm.

    Nothing that's been done in the last thirty years leads me to think they have our best interests at heart.

    Name one major thing that has been done that have positive LONG TERM benefits for this nation.

    I cannot think of a single example of policies that serve this nation's long term interests...not one.

    Reagan was one of the biggest spenders increasing the size of Govt in recent history. Why is he excused from the ire?

    And if the conservatives were so upset with Bush, they had a funny way of showing it. In 2004 they relected him to office.

    FYI, We never had a missle defence system Annie.

    We had (and have) an offensive missle system, not a defensive system.

    Nice try though.

    speaking of nice tries....

    "Patriot is a long-range, all-altitude, all-weather air defence system to counter tactical ballistic missiles, cruise missiles and advanced aircraft. Patriot (MIM-104) is produced by Raytheon in Massachusetts and Lockheed Martin Missiles and Fire Control in Florida.

    As well as the USA, Patriot is in service in Egypt, Germany, Greece, Israel, Japan, Kuwait, the Netherlands, Saudi Arabia and Taiwan.

    Patriot missile systems were deployed by US forces during Operation Iraqi Freedom. The systems were stationed in Kuwait and successfully destroyed a number of hostile surface-to-surface missiles using the new PAC-3 and guidance enhanced missiles."

    Reagan had higher taxes on the 1% than Obama is proposing.

    The Scotus has determined that gun laws are in line with the constitution.

    Now why are the people carrying signs that say things like "Obama is a Kenyan".

    These were tax protests by libertarians that republicans are turning into hate spews on democrats.

    The signs they carry and the quotes they give at these rallys prove what they are really about.


    When you look at the signs the gay rallys carry and quote the people at them you then can not come back and pretend they were about something other than the idividuals attending say it was.

    The same is true of these puplic events.

    Now the next one is set for July 4th. How much of the crowds are giong to be claimed by these people as they mix in with the regualr citizens celebarting?

    The reason they have chosen this date is so no real number can be gleened on their actuall attendance.
