What is the point of working hard and getting people elected in this country? We delude ourselves into believing that politicians matter, that they will do what they promise, the the people's work.
In reality, it is just the work of those with more money to spend.
And no one has more money to spend, it seems, than the War Hawks and the Military Industrial Complex.
Yes, this is bitter grapes at the caving of the new Democratic majority to the demands of less than one-third (apparently) of our citizenry who still support the endless war on Iraq.
Shame on you all. Shame on you Heath Shuler.
This will not be forgotten.
