dont-askEditor’s Note – So what if the majority of those who actually do the fighting AND dying for our country oppose this.  They should just keep quiet and bleed, after all, the elite Progressive Left, with their intellectual superiority, knows what’s best for all of us.

As for the eight Republican Senator’s who voted in favor of this measure, I submit again is there really much difference between a Democrat and a Progressive Republican?  The only difference I see is that there’s less angst when a Democrat supports bad policy because we have no hope otherwise.

As one Jason Hoyt is so apt to say, in 2012 our goal should be 60 ‘votes’ in the Senate, not 60 ‘seats’.
