    that will kill tens of thousands of unarmed civilians...the elderly, women, and children??

    Your transformation is far from complete.

    •  It's worth noting that (0+ / 0-)

      I never once used the term "convert" or "transform" in my essay.

      I have no plans to become indoctrinated by yet another religion of political ideology.

        are transforming.  I was speaking about transforming in to a true progressive...someone that values human life, even foreign, brown people.  The funny thing about your comment is that you show your contempt for the left as much as the right by speaking of "indoctrination" and "political ideology".  If you think that a belief system founded upon the principles of equality, tolerance, peace, understanding, expansion of knowledge, etc. is the same as indoctrination in to the mindset of conservatism, again, your growth (is that a better word?) is far, far from being worthy of applause.  

        There were no WMD's in Iraq.  Saddam Hussein had nothing to do with 9/11.  If you would vote for GWB again, knowing the death and destruction that we inflicted upon the Iraqi people, you may not have the depth of character that you seem to be trying to convince us of in your diary.
