"To announce that there must be no criticism of the president, or that we are to stand by the president, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public." Theodore Roosevelt

The Reality-Based Community

It's growing... Even Republicans are joining.
I was a military wife for 12 years, spent two tours with my husband overseas, and am a registered Republican. I think Salt Lake City Mayor Rocky Anderson is the best kind of hero. He is standing up for our troops instead of worrying if he will look patriotic or not. He is risking his job and his standing in the community to save the lives of our loyal men and women fighting in Iraq. Americans have to quit waving their flags and puffing out their chests and start using the good sense that God gave them. How many times do they have to hear that they were lied to? How many times do they have to hear the war in Iraq has nothing to do with Sept. 11? How much money do Halliburton and the oil companies get to put in their pockets before Americans open their eyes to see this is no mission of honor? As Americans we should revere the office of the president of the United States, not the man. To be blind to the man and only see the office is not being patriotic; it's being dangerous. As Americans we are supposed to be ever vigilant, not goose-stepping lemmings. Wake up, because if you don't, the blood of our best and bravest will be on your hands.
Welcome. Please stay a while. Help us get this country back on course, before it's too late.
