The G.O.P. is N.F.G.

I don't know what it is with the American people but they seem to be blind to the fact that the Right Wing Republicans are totally out of control.
On top of derailing scientific advancement with opposition to stem cell research and support for creationism at the expense of scientific fact, they also poo-poo (I love that word!) global warming and a host of other scientific endeavours.

As well as these asinine policy and position declarations, the members of the right wing are the biggest "war-mongers" in the history of the United States.

Iran was attacked for no other reason than its oil, and relations with Russia have deteriorated to the point of a possible resumption of the "cold war!"

In a debate in New Hampshire, where the country's first primary will be held next year, they were largely in agreement on an issue that President George W. Bush considers vital -- preventing Tehran from developing nuclear weapons.

Iran insists its nuclear program is for civilian use only, but Republican candidates for U.S. president agreed on Tuesday that Iran must not develop atomic weapons even if a tactical nuclear strike is needed to stop it, and accused Democrats of being soft on the issue.

Democratic candidates had their own debate in New Hampshire on Sunday and largely agreed the United States should open direct diplomatic talks with Iran on the nuclear issue. Giuliani said it sounded to him like "Democrats were back in the 1990s."

A second-tier candidate, California Rep. Duncan Hunter, was more direct, saying the United States reserved the right to dissuade Iran militarily.
"I would authorize the use of tactical nuclear weapons if there was no other way to preempt those particular centrifuges!"

"You shouldn't take any options off the table," said the leader in the Republican pack, former New York Mayor Rudolph Giuliani, when asked whether a tactical nuclear strike might be necessary.

But, as a small minority, Texas Rep. Ron Paul, a candidate drawing about 2 percent in opinion polls, opposed a nuclear strike on moral grounds and because he believed Iran was no threat to U.S. national security.

"We, in the past, have always declared war in defense of our liberties or go to aid somebody," Paul said. "But now we have accepted the principle of preemptive war. We have rejected the just war theory of Christianity."

Fireworks also briefly erupted over the issue of immigration.

A Senate proposal backed by Bush has been angrily attacked by conservatives who consider the legislation an amnesty plan for 12 million illegal immigrants in the United States.

McCain backed the legislation as necessary to resolve what he called a "national security problem," but in perhaps a reflection of the deep conservative unease with the bill, he admitted that "this isn't the bill that I would have written."

Giuliani called the immigration plan a "typical Washington mess" that was the result of a compromise between competing interests.

"It's quite possible it will make things worse," he said.

Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney avoided a face-to-face immigration spat with McCain who accused him of pandering for votes by calling the legislation a silent amnesty. "He's my friend," Romney said of McCain.

But he said the plan would allow "every illegal alien" to remain in the United States.

Gee, I wonder if the means Mork will have to go too!

On a side note, the Democrates and Republicans should switch Logo's since it is obviously the G.O.P.'s who are the Asses!

As an American that is sick and tired of feeling like I am continuously banging my head against a brick wall in my attempts to get my fellow countrymen to pull their heads out of their behinds and actually think for themselves instead of jumping on the Ignorant American Republic Bandwagon, I find your articles quite refreshing. Too bad you don't live down here so you can help me enlighten these so called holier than thou right wingers. They are about as dense as one can be and what makes it shameful is that there is no excuse for any American to be intentionally stupid with the ease of access of a college education to just about everyone...rich and poor alike. Quite simply the majority obviously have no objective or analytical reasoning skills. I think the gov't must be putting "STUPID" chemicals in the water.

Now don't get me wrong, I love my beautiful country but the American dream has become a facade. I am embarrassed by the Republican Party and their history of war mongering and their sneaky attempts to invade the privacy of its citizens and their attempt to change our constitution with the help of gullible citizens. Their objective is obviously not merely Homeland Security but brainwashing the American People into believing their lies. Morality seems to be losing ground.

I sometimes feel out of place offering a critique of the States when I am not a citizen so to you I can only say;
Thank You, Thank You, Thank You!

WOlf Blitzer, used to work for AIPAC, (America- Israel Political Action Committe), so basicly a foreign agent was jackking up the candidates to commit to a nuclear first strike against Iran for Israel

'If you're against nuclear first strike, you're an anti-semite'
