Politics: Left, Right, and Center National, state, regional, and local politics. Who's doing what to whom, and what you can do about it. How-to-get-action messages are encouraged. "How the government fucked up my life" stories are encouraged. Sharing new methods for cheating on taxes is encouraged. Sample "letters to congresscritters" are encouraged. Apathy and "I can't do anything" posts are discouraged. Left, right, centrist, or any other form of political-economic systems are all up for discussion. Be prepared to defend yourself, or at least have a good line of bullshit ready. Extensive quoting of economists and philosophers is frowned upon. We want to hear what YOU have to say, not what some constipated, impotent, dead guy dreamt up while suffering from the DT's over a hundred years ago thought.

Default Armchair POTUS

since we all have our opinions on the war, it would be interesting to see:

[If you were the President of the United States for the next year, what would you do about the war. How would you handle your power and why?]


I would pull our military out, half would be ordered to Kuwait. Quick response to Iraq if needed. the other half would go to Afghanistan with the objective being the Taliban and terrorist training camps. The ultimate goal is finding OBL.

Our intelligence gathering personnel would be given more funding and equipment, they would be the "front line" of the war on terror.

I would also try to mend fences with our allies. We need them.

anyone else?[

I'd abandon Israel and then slowly withdraw from Iraq and Afghanistan over the next year. In my opinion, unless America stops supporting Israel, the freedom fighters won't stop targeting America.

Pull most of the military out.
Send the contractors in to rebuild schools, hospitals, clinics, libraries and social housing. Keep a small military presence to defend these contractors.

I would also distance the US from Israel, and encourage the UN to impose an embargo on them.

so, we should stop helping our friends, and they SHOULD be our friends, because it makes people who think we're infidels anyway not like us. Disgusting...

Pull out immediately, severely downsize the military, and secure the borders.

Abandoning Israel will give us peace for our time.

Peace my ass. Besides abandoning Israel being the wrong thing to do, it would do nothing for peace.

They still shit like us helping to overthrow the government in Iran 50 years ago as an excuse to kill innocent people, so how long do you think they will hold supporting Israel against us? How long will any pressure being applied for any reason in the middle east be seen as bullying....We aren't doing anything wrong by supporting Israel, they just use it for propoganda, and will continue to.

The Muslims will never be happy until there is no Israel. This is why they have derailed every chance they had at a Palestinian state. And they will never be happy until the planet is dominate by Islam.
