A lack of clear, principled, leadership leaves such a vacuum.
A Canadian conservative is one who believes in limited government and that the government should stay out of our wallets and out of our bedrooms.
"And in the end, we were all just humans, drunk on the idea that love, only love, could heal our brokenness."
The fact that we've learned our intelligence can be 100% wrong is the problem. (Iraq has WMDs.) The fact that it makes little logical sense for the Syrian government to attack its own people in the face of obvious world condemnation is the problem. The fact that our "war machine" is being drawn down and we don't trust our government to not want to start mobilizing again is the problem.
Thank you, Quazi!
