    our candidates would stand up and forthrightly argue that the very idea of the war on terror is a misguided farce.  We should, of course, do what we can to protect ourselves from terrorists entering the country.  We should, of course, use law enforcement to legally pursue terrorists.  However, in the grand scheme of things, terrorism is a fairly minor threat when compared to issues pertaining to the economy, health care, jobs, education, etc.  George Orwell perfectly laid out the strategy:  Convince the people that you're in a perpetual state of war and you can completely solidify your power and control.  This is exactly what the Administration has done, and too many democrats have unquestioningly allowed the issue of terrorism to be inflated far beyond its real threat and concern.
