I'm at a loss, here. I don't think you guys can separate your revulsion of the policies from an analysis of the people.
For example, Albert Spier was a bright man. Probably far brighter than anybody whom he worked for. Does that mean that I approve of Spier or his war efforts? I hope you don't think so.
The same goes for any current, past, or future American politician. Take Jimmy Carter. one doesn't get through the Naval Academy in nuclear engineering by being mediocre. Mr Carter was once (and probably still is) a brilliant man. Does that assessment mean that I approve of Mr Carter's politics? Ever? I hope you don't think so.
President Clinton ... etc.
The biggest problems we are facing right now have to do with George Bush trying to bring more and more power into the executive branch and not go through Congress at all and thatís what I intend to reverse.
