117. Hmmm let me see if I understand
So if you blow up tomorrow morning in a terrorist attack... we can all sit back and say you deserved it since you pay your taxes thereby supporting the military? Or perhaps you live in a district that voted a certain way? Or a city that voted a certain way? Or a state?? Or a country...

Enjoy your life... someone like you will certainly celebrate your death... that is really sad mate. To proclaim you dislike violence and then to be so dismissive of mass destruction... how hollow your existence must be.

Violence may beget violence as you say... but even violence has it's place. If no one else has weapons then we shall all be slaves to the one who does.

You have every right to say what you wish... but my friend you should be willing to fight and die to ensure that I have the right to disagree with you... that's what the USA is about.

Democrats are not anti-war, they are tough as nails and very willing to go to war to defend freedom. Perhaps you are affiliated with the wrong party. Clinton, Johnson, Kennedy, Truman and Roosevelt all were prepared to send troops into harms way to defend either this's ideals... or to stand up and fight for those who couldn't. Are you saying that they were war-mongers too because if you are then please join the Green party or something. The love and support for the military that the Democratic party has should never be questioned and neither should our backbone. I despise Republicans who say things like that and I certainly hate it more if it comes from a fellow Democrat.

Just because I support your right to say what you wish doesn't mean I have to sit here and not challenge it.
