Balance is the key

America needs balance to counter this radical "right" in the upcoming mid-terms, it is simple and it is logical. You and I have seen poll after poll on wanting our troops out of Iraq, and yet the Congress pays little attention to what Americans say unless it is October of 2006 and they are on the verge of losing their jobs, I don't know about you America but I don't want people like this voting on my best interests.
Having said this we come back to a point on "balance" and that we need, to rightly uphold most of our beliefs, whether it be the environment, the wars we are now in, or domestic issues. We don't need a Congress blindly following an ideology that has no plan, they continue to be impervious to what is going on in the minds of the American people or what is going on in Iraq.
The Senate has rejected any withdrawal plans and Harry Reid of Nevada said it best with this statement; "Content with no plan and no end in sight." Now that statement sums it up quite a bit they have no plan yet they don't know when to leave, in other words it is a big beaucratic mess created by this out of tune Congress and I say that with passion, they are basically out of tune with the American public like you and me and a clear majority seeking an end to this nightmare called Iraq and Afghanistan.
We are fighting a war where there is no morals on the battlefields (speaking of the enemy) they can kidnap our soldiers and treat them to ungodless perils, and yet we ourselves abide by all the rules of the game, we need leardership of a clear cut plan to set some guidelines going here to get our military back out of harm's way unless we are going to stay forever?  I'll leave you on an old quote that may fit here; "Can the blind lead the blind? Shall they not both fall into the ditch?" Jesus Christ.

    Floyd, I think it's incredible that Bush has said the finishing of the Iraq War will be left up to the President who follows him in 2009 ! He has dissociated himself from any results or accountability as he always does.

    Hey Jim, good to hear from you again, I see you have survived the monsoon rain down there. Yes that basically sums up everything he will pass this mess on to someone else, and the Repugs seem to follow blindly into oblivian when it comes to and God forbid make a decision on maybe bringing our troops home.
