    Hate to break the bad news to you... we are the defacto world police and have been for more than a half century... by default.

    We should and do pick our battles when it is in our national interest, and we even do it to protect western civilization on the whole.

    Yes there is a lot of corruption and evil in places like Africa and we fund these excursions too through the UN. We can't do everything, we have let the rest of the world show us how feeble and incompetent they and their beloved UN are... and they do.

    America's unending effort to police the world which simultaniously bankrupts us, causes our troops to die, and makes ememies.

    This is somewhat exaggerated. It would be an odd ball case if a welfare recipient enjoyed a pool and hot tub or a high-definition television, with the possible exception of unemployment benefits.

    However, the actions of any political party are calculated to gain and retain political power. Public relations are the ascendant concern, with any observance of principle taking place only to the extent it is concurrent with the goal of increasing and retaining political power.

    If you notice something good in yourself, give credit to God, not to yourself, but be certain the evil you commit is always your own and yours to acknowledge.

The Neville Chamberlain School of dealing with evil is the way to go?.
    I always love it when conservatives bring up Neville Chamberlain's name, because he was a conservative. Look it up.

    Japanese, Russians, Estonians, Lithuanians, Latvians, Poles, Slovaks, Czechs, Hungarians, Romanians, Croatians, Serbs, Albanians... Germans... all enemies at one time, now friends, and of course there are Asian countries that we fought that are friendly.

    You must think appeasing Islamic terrorists is the way to go? Clinton tried that. Didn't work. Things got measurably worse. Know why? The morons feed off of weakness. They thrive when we portray it. THAT gets more people killed over the long haul.

    Look how well pacifism worked for Neville Chamberlain.

    I don't care what side of the isle he was on... his philosophy was dead wrong to a sickening extent, and has been adopted by the left... and his philosophy is dead wrong today. Ask Carter and Clinton how well it worked for us?

    Re: What has Damaged America the Most?

    You only needed one choice in the poll - Special Interests

    Special interests are the biggest danger to this country and have been for a very, very long time. Our government has long moved away from "serving the people" to serving money, power and corruption. Serving the will of the people doesn't pay very much. Serving big oil, religious interests, abortion (pro or con), global warming fanaticism and other groups with an agenda to push is what has corrupted our system more than anything you have listed in your poll. Are the other choices damaging America- of course they are, but if you remove special interests from the equation (some of which are listed in your choices), America has a much less corrupt government that might actually serve the people.

    Actulally, it was President Bush's war in Iraq that hasn't done well for us. He declared "Mission Accomplished" in Iraq, May 1, 2003 and there are still problems there. And he wasn't a threat.
