Liberals, Try This Just For the Sake of Argument

Just for the sake of argument, are there any liberal Democrats or other liberals out there who can momentarily lay aside their views on several issues and just consider these possibilities?

Suppose (again, for the sake of argument):

1. That in Florida in November, 2000, Katherine Harris was correct in understanding and carrying out Florida law, and that the twelve investigations by newspaper journalists were correct in concluding that Bush won under every scenario.

2. That the Israeli and Iraqi generals and the Saddam tapes are telling the truth about the weapons of mass destruction, that the WMD were on hand just before Operation Iraqi Freedom and were shipped to Syria, which is also ruled by a Baathist party, and that Saddam was continuing to restore his nuclear weapons development program.

3. That the captured tapes, documents and CDs and Able Danger data mining results that show Saddam’s extensive support for Islamic terrorists are accurate.

4. That with the world’s oil supplies peaking as world consumption explodes, it might be a good idea to nurture a friendly democracy in the most highly educated Muslim country in the Mideast – which just happens to straddle most of the world’s oil.

5. That the effort to establish a democracy in Iraq (completely contrary to Sharia Islamic law) might draw many of the world’s organized Muslim terrorists there and divert them from attacking us on US soil, and that the Iraqis will deal with the sectarian strife as they put their new government in place.

6. That the “hockey stick” data underpinning global warming fears are invalid, and the temperature data showing a long series of warming and cooling cycles (including the ‘little ice age’) taking place over thousands of years are reasonably valid.

7. That the predictions by all actuarial experts that the Social Security program is in serious trouble and will require large tax increases and/or large benefit cuts for most baby-boomers are a harbinger of a disaster that should be addressed now.

Would you therefore continue to obstruct and undermine the President on every front including 1. the war against Islamofascist terrorists, 2. the efforts (not including Kyoto) to reduce greenhouse gases by going nuclear and 3. the efforts to restructure Social Security? Would you continue to call President Bush a “liar”, a “Hitler”, a “terrorist”, insult our troops, disclose and publicize secret intelligence programs and call for our immediate withdrawal and surrender in Iraq? Or would you act somewhat differently?

If the answer is yes, that you would act somewhat differently, you give me heart to continue to try to get out the truth as I see it, and possibly reach you, drip by drip. If the answer is no, I wonder why you bother to listen to any news and information source, when you can find out everything you need to know from Michael Moore and Cindy Sheehan.

I think that maybe I've been wrong all these years. I think that I should join the ranks of Michael Moore and Cindy Sheehan and stick my head in the sand,be an excepted groupie of the Hollywood crowd, and live dangerously. Hey, maybe I'll give up my guns, (I'm getting too old to shoot anyway) and do a little drugs. What the heck, everybody is doing them. I could start smoking that wacky tobaccy! As far as religion is concerned, it's not cool to believe in God. That's only for Conservatives who can't get by without some kind of a crutch. Besides, religion gets in the way of abortion, Gay Marriage, and a whole lot of social issues that complicate life. "Live and let live, and keep things simple" that's what I say! Hey, if the folks in the Mid East, can't get along, let them fight there own battles. As long as we stay here and mind our own business, we should be okay. I want to pay a lot of taxes, and let the government support me, give me health care, and tend to my needs. Yes,--all these years have been wasted, worrying about the safety of my country. My thinking has been all wrong, and I need to turn over a new leaf, and get into a more Progressive mode!

Well - you want us to believe SO MANY lies. "Cheney's Razor", (the opposite of Occam's Razor) if you will. It's a real slippery slope, the faith you have in Bush. Bush himself is just a tool of Wall Street, the real rulers of this land. They will dispense with him when they see fit, and when he becomes "bad for business", which is happening...

Now, you "conservatives" and by "conservatives, I mean "Bush BIG Government Conservatives" (how has the government been made small enough to drown in a bathtub?) please do me the favor of watching this movie:

You are the unfortunate victim of conspiracy theories and leftist propaganda. Usually the smplest explanation is the truth.

You had to throw in more of your global warming denial, didn't you?

Liberals are driven by truthiness

not by the truth.

What happened to Rumsfeld's announcement that the Pentagon had lost $2.3 Trillion? Misplace, unaccounted for? The USA was formed to "secure" "liberty". How much freedom to choose are we given? Oh, that's right, that part of the Constitution was just over-written by present administration, elected to represent "we the people".

Oh, don't recall Rumsfeld's front page headline? Guess what happened the next day, made everyone forget about it. What happened the next day? You know it all, so needn't tell you.

Yes, I'd like you to get me the truth & proof. Like what's this about Pres Bush's oil holdings? And have you spoken to those that did the wiring on the top floors? Why is this info being withheld.

No offense, but I think you might like to consider that you could be seriously wrong.

There a lot of very immature people out there, full of hate, revengeful because of their election losses, not able to allow themselves to rationally and unemotionally look at the world prior to 9/11, prior to the 2nd Iraqi invasion. I feel really sorry for those people I certainly would not feel right in calling other people lairs without first discovery or attemt to study the truth. You all sound like Tokyo Rose, and if you want to find out what she used to say do a little research before you fire back...engage your brain before you lose another election
