You really want to play this game? I have a posting history that goes back 11 years on this site. I don’t post often and I’ve only commented on the candidates in this current election a handful of times. Nothing in all the previous posts I’ve made throughout the years is a red flag that screams “political operative.”
Now let’s look at your posting history. You created your account in 2002. You posted here and there through 2004, twice in 2005, backed McCain with your three posts in 2008, put in a good word for Avatar at the beginning of 2010... came back December 11th of 2011 and then, starting December 14th, have been posting HARD for Newt Gingrich, viciously attacking his detractors and heavily criticizing his opponents. The posts you have made since December 14th of last year probably constitute a good 95% of your contributions to this forum and the biggest chunk of them have been heavy in the bag for Mr. Gingrich.
It’s easy to deflect attention from yourself by accusing those from whom you wish to detract of what you yourself are doing. Anyone who would take the time to read our respective posts throughout the history of this website will plainly see that YOU are far more likely “political plant” than me.
MWS, thanks for your anti-Newtisms as it fired me up to do some hard thinking about great leaders. With a little time I could research this better, but briefly, here goes:
David (of the Old Testament) - Committed adultery and sent the woman’s husband to the front lines so he would be killed.
Solomon - Had hundreds and hundreds (I forget how many) of wives and concubines.
Churchill - Responsible for the deaths of more than 30,000 men at Gallipoli (World War I).
Roosevelt - Personally approved Operation Keelhaul, which forcibly sent hundreds of thousands of Soviet citizens back to Russia to be killed. You should see the old movie, “Red Danube” - it’ll break your heart.
And last but not least, my personal hero Reagan actually signed a pro-abortion bill while governor of California.
Nobody’s perfect. Right now, I would vote for the devil himself if he could save America.
...And it is easy to be an agent provacateur, sowing dissention with half-truths and lies, sir.
