7. I think it does matter. You're totally right though.
We've all seen Smedley Butler's speech.

But the way I see it, a Republican president just paves the way, and everything works out nicely for the military and it's indirect way of subsidizing corporations. Whereas a Demcocrat doesn't' fully roll out the red carpet. Sadly, the military has more power than any of the branches of government, it seems. If I look at what happened in Iraq, I feel I can say that without sounding too ignorant. The Valerie Plame incident should have been a show stopper. But no. It was a choreographed free for all.

The British Empire did it. What a mess. I'm looking for something better. We can do it.
