now i am being mistaken for being too conservative. and pro-war?
how can this be?
i don’t like that such clear ‘sides’ are drawn from so little information.
fyi– i am personally a pacifist, politically i *understand* why war exists.
i am neither an idiot or a hippie.
i think that if i were to evaluate the status of the war or bush as president during a war.
it’s going fine and I don’t think Bush is doing a horrific job at all,
despite my preference to not be in the situation in the first place.
I admit I didn’t vote for him in any fashion.
not even by voting for a third party candidate.
Remember we live in a constitutional republic, NOT a democracy.
democrat-ic, perhaps. a democracy, not technically.
But I truly believe george W. is doing what he honestly believes is best and necessary from his perspective.
I respect that.
yes, i too feel smothered by the war, but am not going to censor myself.
if we want to talk about supporting our troops, well, what we feel is “overkill” (no pun intended)
isn’t any fraction of what those in Iraq— civilians, journalists, peacemakers and soldiers—
are feeling. So, I feel obliged to deal.
i am just gonna go watch the oscars and eat ice cream.
i have many things to write later.
