My point is that our politicians--present and former--are treating the war like just another opportunity for soundbites without thinking of the effect their words might have. In an earlier era we'd call comments like gore's and Kennedy's "seditious."
And what I was saying in the comment you quotes is that defending Gore's actions today on the grounds that he played nice in 2000 is . . . well, it's not any sort of defense at all.
But if it's all you've got . . . go ahead. I'll ignore it.
So I was wondering...in your vision of America...where does dissent end and sedition begin??
I feel my country may be in an unjust was and kids may be dying for no good reason...but I'll just keep my mouth shut to preserve the common good...goood gfor the guys who aren't over there fighting that is...good for the corporations that are making mad profits....
Yeah...he would have won anyways...so who cares how us black folk voted....
Here we are in total agreement...I feel politician on both sides are doing the exact same thing...honest political disagreement has become a war of unending tv sound bites..
