You don't need to be a politician to know what's going on. Thank goodness we do have a free press.
As for "Wikileaks" causing a war, give me a break. It didn't take this much to start war-mongering in Iraq. Besides, the leaks are real accounts.
As for the republic comment, the United States was founded as a republic. There's a lot of navel-gazing debate about republic vs. democracy. The bottom line is that checks and balances are part of our system, thank goodness.
As for Congress, that's not always the case. A lot of elected officials vote on party lines, not what their constituents want. There's also a thing called lobbyists.
Anyway, back to the topic at hand, isn't Wikileaks out of the news for now? How many "wars" did it cause this month? OK. Thought so.
Sir, with a due respect,
The point I was trying to make was that we have people in D.C. to make decisions for us. Lobbyist don't vote do they?
Its going to cause one if we don't science this site. Just because a war didn't start this month doesn't mean one won't start next month.
These rights are being abused and you know it. Honestly, what can you and me do about something like Obama Care? Unless an election is coming up...nothing.
The memos mostly reveal widespread Iraqi civilian deaths
I have meant to comment on this also...
Civilains die in war, thats why nobody likes war.
