yeh I feel bad about the changes in the american government the president went head over heels for terrisom and to me that was the biggest change I can not
except but seeing the government losing the war in Iraq and the bodies of American soldiers keep piling up in numbers.I really had thought a lot of the president as a person but he him self has so many things in the way in front of him That I am really fighting his beliefs that some of it was caused over abroad that whiched caused 9/11 just to set this off to make a war with Saddam.

and to just make money off the oil feilds for Bushes own in trest and money. the truth finerly comes off online after awhile after u wait a while to hear some of the good come out from the bad.
no matter where you are what country you live in there is always a open book conversation for politics it is never dead.
