greetings my love!i just had to write again because for so long e-mail was our chief means of communication.maybe im nostalgic but some things are just better when put to words.we're so lucky to be home now.just think,we have a lake in our back yard and we can now go horse-back riding in the forest any day of the week.we've lived in other countries and we know now,more than others,how great a place America is(even if the republicans are trying to run it into the groundLOL!)its great that we seem to have the same political views.we are both hawks but we are smart enough to vote democrat.i really see nothing wrong with bush going after bad guys(in iraq or afghanistan)but now there are other pressing issues abroad and at home that demand serious attention and i just feel the democrats can do a better job.it bothers me that the republicans are telling americans that the democrats will allow the terrorists to get them(ie,make america unsafe)i will agree with my republican friends here(in republicanlandLOL) that both parties seem to"waffle"on the issues some.same complaint from my liberal and tree-hugger friends(ie,politics as usual,etc,etc)it was fun watching the DNC together the other night.we can both relate to our former leaders,they mean well.clinton was being honest when he said that he had opted out of the vietnam war(as did cheney and bush,he said)but kerry had decided to go.as a democrat and combat veteran myself,it bothers me that the republicans can discount kerry's military history so easily.you know how i feel about that.my ancestors founded this nation and fought in its wars.i hate being called a liberal or unpatriotic simply because i choose to vote democrat.
all those arm-chair"chickenhawks"need to get off their fat asses and serve a tour overseas before they jump to judge others.i think everyone should serve in the military but i wouldnt force them!LOL i feel the same way about the flag.its okay to burn it in protest because thats what being an american is all about.we should serve and protect those rights.anyway,our leaders were kind to the bush people monday evening.(ie,"they mean well")we are at war and should act like it.im still angry about 9/11.i remember what i thought when i first saw the twin towers fall.i thought,"the gloves are off,somebody is going to pay!"when i saw the taliban fall i jumped for joy(havent those idiot taliban heard of seperation of church and stateLOL?)think about it.would you want the bible-thumpers running this nation?i dont think so.our ancestors were god-fearing people but no fools.seperation of church and state was important to the freedom of all americans.well,enough politics(and religion)its late and i look forward to another day with you,...love...m...
