  •  Right on.... (4.00)
    I find it alarming that this question,

    6. Do you think it is OK for people who oppose the war in Iraq to express their opposition publicly, or not?

    is even a QUESTION. When did that become a QUESTION?

    scarey shit, people.

    •  Apart from little matters like freedom of speech.. (4.00)'s also scary to think that as president, all you have to do is wage perpetual warfare, and a fairly large contingent of the public thinks you should therefore be immune from dissent.
      •  it also plays into shrub's (none)
        "charm" factor.... middle America loves to live with the illusion that "anyone" can be pres, even someone who could not pass a 3rd grade grammar-, civics-, or geography exam, like most of middle america; course, once you get to be pres, you're above the law and beyond reproach.
      •  Oceania (none)
        has ALWAYS been at war with Eastasia...

        9/11 was the Neocons' Reichstag fire. "Patriot Act" = Enabling Act.

        •  Except when its been at war with Eurasia. (none)
          One way or another, it's always been at war . . .or always WILL be at war.

          I re-read it recently and it gives me chills.

          •  Eurasia? (none)
            I seem to remember being told that Eurasia has always been our ally.  And when I look it up in the old newspapers, sure enough Eurasia has always been our ally.  (Although I have this nagging memory of hating the Eurasians, but I must be mistaken...)

            There's no way we could have ever been at war with the Eurasians, and allied with someone as totally evil as Saddam... I mean Osama... I mean Eastasia.

      •  that number is dropping like a lead balloon. (none)
