Many American Christians find it easy to justify war. The act of war is closest humans can come to evil and Satan himself. War only begets more and more violence and it has never solved any problems, it has only created more. Yet American Christians still think war in Iraq is right thing to do mostly because they don't fully understand who they've sent our poor off to fight. War destroys human relationship and penalizes poor and hungry on both sides. The war in Iraq has not solved one problem it has only created 101,200 more problems for father and mother, brother and sister, friend and family member of those who have been killed, injured and maimed. I can't be a Republican.
George W. Bush's win in 2004 was not beginning of end for Democrats, it was beginning of end for Republicans. George W. Bush won by smallest majority of any President in history of United States. That is not a mandate and it is not indicative of need by Democrats to radically alter their image so that it appears like they represent values. The democratic party has always been party of values and principle.
Why won't those in Republican party understand that battle that is taking place today is one against extremism and fundamentalism and you don't have to be a Muslim to be guilty of it.
I want fiscal responsibility. I want equality for all men. I want prudence and I want peace. I want to be a Republican.
