    Part of the political war is to make your opponent seem to be bad for America. I don't see the left as anti-American but I do see them doing their best to tell the world that we are not a united front on the war on terror. While it is certainly thier right to do so, it makes America appear weaker. If Kerry wins the election, I see the republicans continuing to support the WOT even if Kerry cuts and runs.

    Presonally, I believe putting a critical eye on goverment officials is the most patriotic thing you can do for your country, certainly not anti-american. Too bad the liars in right wing media disagree.

    there is a difference but quite often they overlap.

    If you are opposing Bush on Health care, then who cares. we all have our opinions. Most of the domestic agendas as well. we can differ.

    But if you are opposing the President on national security and defending our way of life you are very close to the edge.

    Being anti-Bush is patriotic if that's what your opolitical views dictate.

    Calling for Bush's death like Morrisey did(in a sense), and similar statements I heard, is both anti-American and terroristic.

    I do believe you can be QUITE anti-Bush without crossing the line, just as you can rip Kerry apart is that is your impulse.

    We're all capable of sorting through bullshit when we invoke our Constitutional right to vote however we want for whatever our reasoning.

    And would a critical eye include comparing him to Hitler, Stalin and posting wanted dead or alive posters of him for crimes against humanity? This is what the not so radical left is resorting to in this election.

    The most patriotic thing you can do for your country is to make the ultimate sacrifice: your life.

    How come Democrats have forgotten the old adage: politics stop at the water's edge?

    I believe that Ted Kennedy, John Kerry, Tom Daschle, Barbara Lee, Nancy Pelosi etc. etc. are anti-American because they will use whatever means neccessary including doing what is clearly wrong for the country to garner power for theirselves. Not saying Repubs don't do it sometimes but usually they stick to the water's edge rule.
