    Afghan one not but Iraq's ones was a non sense war. They attacked Iraq because they claimed that Iraq had chemical weapons which they never found.
    Besides from close information of my mates who served in Iraq i am more convicted then media that Iraq's war was due to oil business.

    All the BS aside I think we did a good thing in Iraq. During my year in Basra I got to meet some great people and they all seemed very happy wityh the progress that was being made. Of course we had our share of trouble but on the whole I think our occupation was a positive thing for the averege Iraq citizen.

    This is the average Republican response which is flat out dumb.

    How many 9/11 terrorists came from, Iraq?

    You do realize that you killwed over 4,000 Americans to bring Sharia Law to Iraq? Unfortunately, Republicans have a penchant for killing innocent people as long as they are in power and liberals are no better.

    You people are a disgrace to humanity.

    This has probably been said before, but I didn't make it past the first page when I realized that this thread was going to be filled with ridiculous posts.

    Relative to the world, voting is a privilege. Relative to the United States, voting is and always should be a right. The idea that only those who pay income taxes or only those who do community service or only those who do "whatever I think measures the value of a citizen" should be able to vote is preposterous. Not only does that give government leaders (and those who pay them) far too much power over determining who has no say in the government, it completely disregards the facts that everyone pays taxes in some form, everyone is affected by the government and certain classes will no doubt be completely taken advantage of.

    I can imagine the wonderful system where only people who pay income taxes can vote. Those who do pay income taxes will most likely be in the middle and upper classes and many of those people's interests would be harmed if the lower classes had the right to vote so in order to prevent this from happening they elect the politicians who will ensure that they are never able to attain that right. What a great country.

    Some people are so ridiculous. Everyone should be allowed to vote, even them.

    I do not know how you jumped to that conclusion.

    "The Founders wrote a document for the world of 1787 when we had an isolated backwater nation of 4 million farmers and small merchants on a part of the Eastern seaboard. Those days are long gone. And so are the Founders ideas of skin in the game."
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"
