What are we doing?

David LeVine

We have an educational system that needs attention. We want to reduce the cost of health care. We’re concerned about the future of social security. And most importantly, we want to enjoy our America and kayak and ski and ride bikes and visit our national parks. And what are we doing?

We’re fighting a war in Iraq and diverting our attention and getting our fellow Americans killed and wasting our money!

I would suggest that our government has failed us in a big way. There is no “win” in this war!

I’ll never be convinced that this war had to happen or that threatening Iran is in our best interests. We must demand a government that can convince any potential adversaries that there is a peaceful and better way. There just have to be Americans with that desire and that ability. War is failure!
