    Does anyone besides me feel a change coming on? I feel like there will be a change in foreign policies everywhere, everyone taking sides, a WWIII breaking out. A big finale, I guess. Anyone else thing that this is the beginning of something extraordinary?

    I do as many others do. Strictly from a religious standpoint, many truly believe this is the beginning of the final battle between good and evil.

    Most change centers on the EU and its activities but most Americans don't look at that, they look only at our nation and see the effects instead of the cause.

    Yeah, to me thats another reason that it just may be. I dont know, to me it seems kind of exciting, but I am a young war mongrel.

    Me too:D

    Seriously, I agree with NewGuy, the EU is making progress quickly, something to watch and follow.

    Have you ever seen, up close an personal, dead guys; blown apart? Or how about guys that are alive, but just missing an arm or leg or two and trying to crawl away from the fire that is melting their skin - while they are calling out for your help, but all you can do is keep moving as that is your orders?

    It is not a pretty site and if you had, you most likely would not be such a "war mongrel".

    Unfortunately, sometimes our young men and women have to go fight for our country. However, I urge you to not be in a hurry!

    We live in interesting times. (That dang Chinese curse). Yeah there is change coming. There is always change coming.

    We have our nation polarizing. The the electorate is leaning toward conservatism. But that doesnt mean we arent polarized still. Because there is very very little middle ground betwee the two. There is no real middle ground on any of the major issues. Example:

    You are either for fighting terrorists or you arent.

    You are either for people keeping their money or not

    You are either for life or pro abortion.

    You are either for protecting the family or for gay marriage.

    These are just a few of the issues. The last two in particular are very polarizing. So while we are leaning conservative, the polarization will continue to take place. Moderates are loosing power and having a harder time remaining in power. Senator Spector is an example of that. He had a very tough primary race in which he only won by very few votes. Our nation is dividing, just not on fifty fifty lines.

    Change is on the horizon. Im not sure how much more extreme left will be able to handle not being in power. Look at the incredible hatred for Bush. I cant imagine what will happen when Bush wins this year. (And im very confident he will win in landslide numbers especially if he keeps pushing on Kerry hard in California and New Jersey). The reaction is going to be extreme.

    We have extremes on both side of the isle who are inching for rebellion. the conservative groups in South Carolina. And there are some liberals who have been itching to take California and secede from you Union. (That could be an interesting discussion because some of the arguments for that are so stupid) If Bush wins, the extreme leftists may try to rebel. If Kerry wins the Extreme right may try to rebel. Either way we are in a powder keg about ready to burst.

    And while we are squabbling among our selves and possibly closer to civil war then we want to imagine, terrorists will be able to infiltrate this nation and they will likely have WMDs of somesort. Its only a matter of time unless we crack down on them hard now! I remember when i heard about 911, After the shock, i wasnt as much angry at first as i was sad, sad that someone could do such a thing, and sad because i think we are going to look back on 911 and wish for such days.
