The GOP pulls a trick to reduce votes for some Republican Delegates - criminal charges might be filed.
Comment on by spacehabitats on 04/25/2008 follows: "Corrupt old guard Republican political hacks hit a new low in quashing democracy in America. It wasn't enough that the news media did everything in its power to stifle the message of Ron Paul. Now his Neoconservative lackeys are resorting to ballot burning tactics worthy of Adolf Hitler."

Talking Torture at the White House

The highest levels of the Bush administration knew about and approved the CIA's torture of suspected terrorists. "This government does not torture people."

Criminals and Felons in the US Military

Patriotic Americans are naturally inclined to be supportive of our military, but many Americans are unaware of how dramatically the armed services have changed since the Korea and Vietnam era. Those changes should cause Americans to be careful not to confuse real patriotism with blind support for an administration or political party’s agenda.

A Must Read Article...

Fight for what’s right, not what’s likely
From: The Washington Times Weekly - 14 Apr 2008 - Letters To The Editor

At this moment I am ashamed of the American conservative movement. Supposedly, the right outnumbers the left in this country, but does it? In these presidential primaries of late I have seen so-called “conservative” foundations and organizations supporting “conservative” candidates, most of whom are conservative in name only. Focus on the Family and the NRA were supporting Mike Huckabee and John McCain, respectively. Both of these organizations have a lot of weight, the proverbial 800 -pound gorillas, and they turned their back on the one real conservative who could have gotten in office. Why? Because Ron Paul was the underdog anddidn't have a chance.” On the other hand, Mr. McCain and Mr. Huckabee were “winners.”

How many other rising stars have fallen by the wayside thanks to the lost cause argument? Let's start with Barry Goldwater in the ’60s. Then we have Ross Perot in the 1990s, to name just two.

Just because the underdog is up against impossible odds doesn't mean anything. When you fight a war, you don't throw your lot in with those who you think will win. You fight for what is right. The lesser of the two evils is no choice at all, because it is still evil.

As for those who support the “winners,” how dare you call yourselves conservatives. Let me see, can I name all those who have fought against impossible odds and won? Roland, Sam Houston, Stonewall Jackson, Erwin Rommel, John Paul Jones, Lord Nelson, Alvin York… shall I go on? I found the ultimate antidote to the lost cause argument in of all places, a Lego comic book. The villain screams at the hero “you fool Axonn! Don't you realize you are fighting for a lost cause?” The hero replies “don't you realize those are the only kind worth fighting for?Who has the guts to stand up for what is right?

Some say Ron Paul is “too radical.” Which would you pick: Radical conservative, yellowbelly conservative, or radical liberal? Besides, I can think of 56 more “radicals” who we can thank for the Declaration of Independence. If we want to keep those freedoms we take for granted, then we need to be radical. Again, I say to those afraid to stand up for their principles and beliefs, to those too afraid of supporting a “loser,” to those who won't stick to their well-advertised desire
to stop the liberal trashing of our nation, I say again, How dare you call yourselves Conservatives?
