    Obama's policies have prolonged this recession, failed to improve the job market, and have burdened the poor with enormous expense-gas, Obamacare, etc.

    Yes, but none of the things you mentioned will be repaired by republicans.

    Because it's impossible to prove a negative. That's why the burden of proof belongs on the claim and not the negative.

    For example: One cannot prove unicorns don't exist. The burden of proof is on the claim that they do.


    This simple logic and reason is the basis of the scientific method and our justice system.

    If a country "attacks" us, I don't think the reason WHY is at the top of my list of things to worry about. I'd be more concerned with defending ourselves and having the means to do so.

    Do I think this latest dumb threat means anything? Of course not, it's just more posturing and nothing more. What are they going to do with their old outdated couple of ships against our state-of-the-art fleets?

    No they aren't, and were created by both parties, and perpetuated by both parties. A clean break is the fix, but its not easy.

    If the reason for an attack was preventable it should be paramount.

    It's kind of late once you're being attacked, don't you think? At that point, it's survival of the fittest.

    Point being that when you interfere with and provoke nations, they may be inclined to attack you, and that is preventable.
