...did you consider this a distraction ...an old post to draw attention away from "hard news"? I hope not as the few people who have commented here were very interested in yesterday's vote and are very actvely interested in today's polititians who would have our vote.
Additionally, for some of us understanding the "issues" and peoples' convictions is very much dependent upon the principles we believe any true open society would abide by. What is going on in the Middle East may well lead the US into a world war. How other countries view or not so open society impacts not only what actions we need to take but whether or not our intervention in others' affairs will result in friends or enemies.
Some of us changed our thinking a great deal due to Ron Paul. When what he said ie "Israel is our friend" is misconstrued and misrepresented by a few on this site to justify blind adherence to
the totality of Israel's political agenda (not having anything to do with Jews) which is a neo-con agenda or to justify becoming a Zionist (also not having anything to do with Jews), then it is or should be new news to attempt to clarfy what Ron Paul really meant in context.
Lol...please clarify if you meant this is a distraction like the recent food post. (I didn't have a prob with that one as it was dinner time and I figured the posters were hungry!)
