I really don't think democracy will work well in Iraq. Life is different there than it is here.crazy spinster said:but who are we to impose our form of government on another country? just because democracy works for us doesn't mean it will work for everyone and we have no right to force another country to accept it.Milo47 said:the US is just staying over there to protect the citizens of Iraq from terrorists who are still to this day living there and attacking the US Troops. Democracy will work, the Iraqi people and the US and other nations must fight for them in order for the Tyranny to fall and for them to get back up on their feet.
and lawrence - that's okay with the quotes. just as long as we don't have like ten quotes in one post like we did several pages ago. that drove me crazy.
I agree with Milo here... Bridget IS smart!btvaughn said:I'm basically w/ Milo here. The president plays a HUGE roll in our government. Yes, Congress makes plenty of decisions as well, but someone has to be the executive branch. He has advisors, but so do other corporations. The pres has authority over the military and enacting laws among SO many others. Take a look at the constitution... Just b/c he has advisors doesn't mean he isn't making decisions.
And if one were to take to saying the pres makes no decisions....then that person would have no right to say the president is making the WRONG decisions. If that were the case...the advisors would be at fault, and no American would have reason to blame the pres. Is that what you're saying?
definitely, I agreeCharlie said:
dude that is so troo..man...theres like albert einstien....dude he was like an idiot but he turned out to be a genius..and besides...bush is the leader of our country..i think he deserves some creadit and respect manbtvaughn said:Time out for a sec...just b/c a president got C's isn't a basis to say he's unacceptable as president! Take Bill Gates...from what I can recall he dropped out of college and look where he is now.
I do hope that was sarcasm and I just couldn't tell, b/c C's in high school is no reason a person to put Bush down...
