    National Health Care needs to be presented as capitalist Freedom. The freedom to have your own business, to be an entrepeneur without the baggage of who you hire. The Freedom to change jobs without the mystery or mirage of the new health insurance situation. The Freedom to go out on a limb with new ventures. The Freedom to entice Toyota to build their plants in our country. The Freedom to plan ahead. The Freedom to stay home and raise a family or care for others. The Freedom to go to school, to improve yourself. The Freedom to marry someone not in perfect health. The Freedom to live with dignity when ill. The Freedom to have medical hope no matter who you are.

    Democrats who "voted for the war" can explain their vote as a presidential empowerment bill, then blame bush for extending himself. Not extending as in "... the Army you have ...", but extending beyond the truth. We allow driver's licenses at 16, but take them back when the youngster gets too ... wild? For that matter, we take licenses back when students fail. Do we let the wild and/or failing little boy cry out that we let him have a license?

    When Republicans respond "everyone agreed about WMD!" Well, everyone had different ideas, and the idea that screwed up is Bush's. Some people thought the UN examiners were going along quite well - the tonnage destroyed was monumental. Some thought that containment was working; that any WMD program was crippled, that his inhumane policies (conducted during Bush1) were checked. Some thought  a secular Iraq hindered Islamic terrorism. But not bush!

    When Republicans scream Clinton agreed, point out that Clinton's 1998 bombing was very effective, we never lost a soldier. It showed our power and capabilities, and their lack of same.. Saddam probably decided he couldn't compete with our abilities. Clinton safely saved us with the world's approval and gratitude.

    The vote can be explained as a presidential empowerment bill, then blame bush for extending himself. Not extending as in "... the Army you have ...", but extending beyond the truth, beyond sense. We give driver's licenses at 16, but we take them back when the youngster gets too ... wild?

    When Republicans respond "everyone agreed about WMD!", well, everyone had different ideas, the one that screwed up is Bush's. Some people thought the UN examiners were going along quite well. Its the reaction to the same thought that shows immaturity or hidden agenda.

    When Republicans scream Clinton agreed, point out that Clinton's 1998 bombing may very well have saved us all. That bombing was effective, and showed our power and capabilities. Saddam probably decided he couldn't keep it up with that kind of ability. Clinton saved us.

    BTW, Clinton's unconsummated affair with a consenting adult is far less immoral than bush's intercourse with the Nation.

    I can't find it, but I distinctly remember bush appointing Rice as the Iraq magnate. He called her the "fixer-upper." We need to find that, point out when that was, and how the fixing has gone since then.
