35. "MMMMMMM" Edwards MUST Be Gaining MOMENTUM... IMO, This
is being put out there NOW, because of last week's MoveOn.org poll! Sorry, still not going to change MY Mind for now... Considering THIS information has been OUT THERE since 2004, the timing seems a little suspicious to me.

Iraq IS WHAT IT IS!! A Humongous Rape on another country and FAR TOO MANY people here in America or shall I say, U.S. of ASS got SUCKERED and fell on the SWORD in the NAME OF PATRIOTISM!

Shall we LEARN from this and make OUR COUNTRY better for it, or simply run around in circles bashing our OWN candidates??? Can we get Feingold elected??? Can we get Kucinich elected? Can we get Leahy elected? Or any of those "others" who were AGAINST the war??

HELL NO, we can't! There was a time I just wanted get up and LEAVE this country, MOVE OUT and go somewhere else, until I sat down and talked to myself and said... "this is OUR COUNTRY, not THEIR's and I'm not going to give it to them so easily!"

So for those of you who are not fans of Edwards.... it IS YOU RIGHT to continue along these lines, but even though I'm no Hillary fan, I'm NOT going to constantly hit her over the head. I will simply state the reasons I don't support her to others and go on from there. I've gone to many ANTI-War marches and events, however it has NOT nor do I think it the marches WILL end it! I just felt the need to lend my voice and vent my frustration!

Charlie Rangel is correct... bring back the DRAFT... this WAR will end very quickly! And don't get me wrong, I have an 18 year old grandson and I most certainly don't want him called up, I married my husband way back when to KEEP HIM OUT of Viet Nam, so I am conflicted about a DRAFT! I was raised as an Army Brat, and swore I would NEVER marry a military man. My father was SUPER, did not abuse any of his 6 girls in any way... but I always wanted NOT to be one of those military brats!
