I was refering more to the RNC/DNC (the party powers) more so than the individuals. just as kennedy is NOT a true democrat - he cares only for himself and his own power and fortune, so are the xNC's.
Bush is OK - he lacks the strength of Reagan and fears the powers of the senate (or he agrees with their sentiments). Reagan would have by now HEARD the call of the people and shut the borders down already and would never have been playing games with the lives of the US MARINES!
You call on the MARINES to close in and DESTROY the enemy - you don't tell them to sit back and play nice with those who would KILL US. To do otherwise is STUPID!
Do you remember when Reagan was president and we had a "little" incident in Beirut with our marines, like losing close to 400 of them? What did Reagan do....???? he withdrew.
Now don't get me wrong. I LOVE Reagan. He's one of our very best. He had a DemocRAT House and Senate most of his 8 years and had to govern by "concensus."
I understand where you're coming from, but this time around, we have no choice but the RNC and President Bush, OR we are doomed.
