Too bad everyone could vote, even the idiots. That's why this baby Bush idiot is in office. Well, it's a price we have to pay to obey the "majority rules" rule in order to keep the system working. Gotta wait for next election.

I like him because he isn’t a liberal, he is a true terrorist fighter and he talks what he means. What I don’t like him because he does not have ability to resolve the issue quick enough, not withdraw troops after WMD investigating ended and he does not have a clear plan what he is doing. Yeah! It’s worse when he speaks in public. :D

In todays society, it doesn't matter who you vote for. If the governing people (the deadly rich) need someone like Bush they'll make it so, if they needed Al Gore then he would have been president. There's no good and bad for them, it's all about who can help them get what they need.

I have faith that this will change one day...

It's all about who's better at lying in this whole game. I guess baby Bush won that lying competition fair and square. My gramma and mother believed in him, for crying out loud :roll: .

You're welcome! Since I'm giving credits to Muslims like you who say they believe in peace I'm taking this talk as a thank you.

It's all about religion and history.

The early spanish settlers of the "American" continent had to settle the whole continent. Through the adventure in combating Indians AND in making a wilderness into a civilised village, the American value came up. Then the settlers weren't spanish any more, but American. That's why Americans like to combat, it's already in the history.

And how did the spanish come on the idea to settle a whole continent? Because the early spanish settlers were very catholic. (We learned in school that Catholic religion demands a lot of self-will and solving problems by their own) To my mind that's why they succeeded in populating a whole continent.

And now many Americans still have that feeling to do everything by their own, and to fight the ones who challenges them.

Religion amd history, used as reasons for war, are the real causes of war. Religion should be modernised, and history should be seen as something which is over.

Wrong again!!
The Spanish did not settle the whole continent. They settled only the south west part of America and even then their supply lines were stretched.

Yeah, it really is a strange thing in the history of the catholicism, this awful attitude everyone who believes in something else is "barbarian" and has to be "evangelized". Just awful.. But I don't think it's a matter of a specific religion, this way of thinking (our religion is the best, our way of living is the best, and everyone should live like we do!) can be found all over the world. Sadly enough...
