For this I do thank you. For your other insight, I am not saying by any means you are wrong but as you go towards a vote look hard at all issues and choices. I also commend you on voting and taking an interest in that process and duty we as Americans are given. Whatever selection you make is the correct one and from that point on you are free to ****** and complain and gloat and whatever else you want about whoever makes it into office. It's so much fun.
You taked a lot about economy and foreign affairs. Read more on the Patriot Act and try and decipher it. I think you will find major flaws in this law. It is a very bad thing IMH(umble)O. This is B speaking, not the military guy. (I must be careful about this)
