IF HUBPAGES IS TO TRULY BE A MICRO-COSMIC REPRESENTATION OF DEMOCRACY WE LIVE IN; WITH AL ITS ATTENDANT 1ST AMENDMENT RIGHTS AND ATTITUDES TOWARDS FAIRNESS.

If America goes to war on non-American soil, should citizens have the right to vote an immediate endMost of America has disagreed with several wars in recent history. We have no power to change them, and soldiers have no option to not fight a war they don't believe in. Of course not all believed...

What else can you call it when every Democrat in the Wisconsin legislature got on a bus and headed out of state to avoid a vote on the Governor's budget? This is turning into a war between tax payers and the unions.http://www.greenbaypressgazette.com/art … supporters
