Holding enemy combatants, that have attacked and killed our people, while hostilities continue. That is kinda the norm.now i'm reading posts advocating holding prisoners for life without trial and lambasting me for being happy that a POW has been released. i've seen a lot of really partisan stuff, but this is just unbelievable.
You are not being lambasted, it was simply asked if you can see past your narrow view.. if perhaps some of these other stories, from people that were there, could be true and perhaps this guy is not a hero. But it appears just asking to consider anything other than what you already think makes you mad.
And again, it is really poor form to call it 'partisan'. It has nothing to do with parties, it has to do with following the rule of law, it has to do with the possibility that the guy is a deserter and thus is responsible for the deaths of many other Americans, it has to do with releasing terrorists that have attacked and killed Americans… doesn't matter what party the person that did it is…
1992 : Ross Perot
1996 : DNV
2000 : Bush
2004 : Badnarik
2008 : Obama, because he was running against a hawk, and i was concerned that McCain would make the wars last forever, as well as potentially signing us up for new ones.
2012 : Obama, because you guys ran a candidate who came off as an out of touch plutocrat who was going to give us more failed trickle down nonsense.
believe what you will about my partisan leanings. i am a left leaning independent, and i have posted my political compass publicly on this site. i have also explained the specifics of the evolution of my political views in multiple threads.
And whom is it in the White House who's constantly playing political games?
Playing for political gains? (real or perceived - more often than not just perceived rather than real)
Flexible principals when it comes to the truth, which loses out for political gains? (real or perceived - more often than not just perceived rather than real)
You only get one guess. . . . . .
