My Florida Republican Congressman's highly suggestive email poll questionSubmitted by persona on Thu, 09/05/2013 - 00:14
My Congressman, Republican Daniel Webster from Florida's 8th District sent out an email poll asking one question:
"Do you believe the use and proliferation of chemical weapons by the Syrian regime is an immediate threat to the national security interests of the United States and warrants military intervention?" (Choose: Yes, No, I Don't Know)
I clicked no and then sent this message via his house.gov email page.
I just checked no in response to your poll question. The way you have formed your question seems to indicate you have already decided to support a war of aggression in Syria. I think you should have ask your question like this:
"Do you believe the security and interests of the United States are not threatened by the use of chemical weapons in Syria, and do you understand that the perpetrators of the chemical attack are not known for certain and that the choice of whose side to support is a choice between the secular government of Assad, which defends the rights of Christians to live and worship freely in Syria and the so-called Free Syria Army which consists of foreign jihad fighters and Al-Queda militants - the same organization responsible for the 9/11 attacks against the United States?"
( ) Yes - I believe that it is irrational to start another war in the Middle East.
( ) No - I believe whatever the US government says this week and have forgotten everything that happened before last week. Please kill some Syrians right away, with normal, moral weapons.
( ) It's too confusing. Where is Syria?
