Sorry but I feel sometimes that our political parties do more damage than good. I can't say I was taught to back the President of the United States (whomever they may be), but I do. Not blindly and without criticism, but yet right or wrong I'm with them till the bitter end (in office). Out of 5 votes for President, I elected only one, yet I will defend their office. Calling Bush a war criminal doen't help anyone, impeaching Clinton was ridiculous. All this does breed contemp in the minority power, and when their turn to lead comes, it's all about payback. How many here can say they will back who ever wins the next Presidency? How many have said they will leave the country if the other guy wins? How many swore to leave after the last election and then followed through?
