You know nothing of politics and global policy steering and certainly your sources of information must come from the daily rag or the tube.

Wrongo! The democrats are far and away utterly evil in their criminal ways.

Dems or Repub, they are all the same for the most part. These are unimportant things you mention. The fact is that both parties are complicit in war crimes and expansionism. It is the same old military, industrial, congressional complex story.

Oregonis reallu getting short-changed with this buffoon-idiot governor, who definately should be investigated by a special prosecutor. He's always on a publicity movement to feed his maniac ego. Since Teddy Kennedy walked away from a dead girl with only a wrist slap (which was knocked down to a mild talking-to, plus time served: zero), Democrats have apparently become a protected class in America, immune from criminal prosecution no matter what they do. As a result, Democrats have run wild, accepting bribes, destroying classified information, lying under oath, molesting interns, driving under the influence, obstructing justice and engaging in sex with underage girls (Neil Goldschmidt admitted to this!), among other things.
