Ok, I can buy that, but where are these enemies going to come from and how are they going to get here? don't you think that if we had defensible borders and sound policies in place they could not get here.

Besides, the reason they are fighting us is solely because we are there, it is our interference in their affairs that has annoyed them. Back out to Fortress America and stop interfereing in their affairs as George Washington advised, and you can sleep safely in your bed, aside of course from the revenge attacks that the invasion of Iraq has engendered and will make America unsafe for generations.

no we are there because they attacked us and in Iraq because of the 12 years Saddam breaking the rules time and time again after the first gulf war, funding terror and a threat of destabilzation.

Al Queda has operative already in this country and waiting in places like Europe, Canada and cell throughout latin America.

No we fight them there so we dont have to fight terrorism on our own soil killing many many more people here.

I am sorry, but your answer is just pathetic and shows absolute ignorance. When and where did Iraq attack America except the attack on the Stark?

Your statement about Al Qaeda is tough to figure out. But figure this one, it is estimated that after 9/11 there were around 1,000 Al Qaeda operatives, today that is estimated to be over 20,000, dedicated to the destruction of the US, why the increase? The placement of Christian Soldiers in the Muslims second holiest nation.

Well, if you were a woman, you would not mind not having no nuts would you?

Based on your post you seem to intimate that I might be a liberal.. Maybe you can tell me what liberal political positions you think I might hold.

See I figure you and yours are ignorant, and that drives your politics, not reason. My politics are far more conservative than yours since I like conserving stuff

What the heck did Iraq have to do with the terrorists? Shouldn't we have our army chasing them instead of being bogged down amongst a bunch of A-rabs?

LOL - "I like conserving stuff, so politically I'm a conservative".

So, if you only use one sheet of toilet paper, that makes you a 'political conservative'? How about if you only eat one chicken wing - does that make you a 'political conservative'? Blowing the horn only one at someone - you are saving 'noise pollution', so = 'political conservative'?

Thanks for that - that was the biggest laugh I've had in quite a while!

Maybe you should try this and find out for yourself.

For everyone that believes only using one piece of toilet paper make you a 'political conservative' (as greatbasinguide does), read this definition of a 'Conservative':

Conservatism is a relativistic term used to describe political philosophies that favor traditional values, where "tradition" refers to religious, cultural, or nationally defined beliefs and customs. The term derives from the Latin, conservāre, to conserve; "to keep, guard, observe". Since different cultures have different established values, conservatives in different cultures have different goals. Some conservatives seek to preserve the status quo, while others seek to return to the values of an earlier time, the status quo ante.

Or, go read the entire article yourself -

LOL - "I conserve things so I'm a political conservative"
