Back from The Shelf

After having the blog shelved for just about 8 months now, the patriot has returned. A lot of things have happened since I last posted. We are now mired in what looks to be a statistical dead heat in the race for the White House event though socialist Barack Hussein Obama already thinks he has moved in.

John McCain, the Republican nominee has been John McCain. His VP pick on the other hand has been a breath of fresh air and the more I see the socialists attack her and try to destroy her, it means she is a serious threat to them.

Damn it’s good to be back

A Question for you Senator Obama

In tonights CNN debate, you stated (I am paraphrasing until I get the transcript), that we spend 2.7 billion dollars in aid to Latin America and we spend that in one day in Iraq. What is your point? You think we should just keep giving aid money to Latin America? You say that the Iraqi government needs to take control of their country and you want to pull all of our troops out.

Do you want the leaders of Latin America to take control of their countries, therefore not needing 2.7 billion of our tax dollars?

Do you think the leaders of the countries of Africa and Asia should take control of their countries so that they will not need our tax dollars?

In other words, do you want the same for countries around the world that you want for Iraq?
