Well if you want to go their shall we make a little bet? I was thinking that come the midterm election in 2010 if the voters vote out Democrats you just go away and never darken the door of Off Topic again. If they don't then I will leave the Off Topic forum.
Would you like to take me up on that?
Sure. The terms are that the Democrats are still the majority party in both houses of Congress, right?
Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.
