No need to ask; they'll just lie, and continue their support of the murdering Zionists. They'll continue to fund the Zionists' drones that'll kill more innocent men, women and children.
Don't you just love it! We have absolutely no voice in what our country does, and people wonder why I'll not vote in future national elections.
Ah, CI, the agonizing helplessness experienced by many Americans! Still we, the American taxpayer, must pay nearly 5 BILLION dollars to a ME nation with only 6/7 million persons. It's US taxpayer money paying for the building of these settlements and the killing of the Palestinians.
There is much poverty here in America that Republicans led by Paul Ryan is trying to make even more wretched by his plan to privatize Medicare, Social Security, giving grants to states to care for the poor, aged, infirm. Democrats are not off the hook either because they too would throw their mother under the bus for Israel. This Congress, particularly Republicans are marching to a different drumbeat. (I read an article recently which said Hillary is planning to move the US capital in Tel Avi to Jerusalem; Washington, today, considers the status of Jerusalem as an issue to be decided between Israelis and Palestinians, who also claim Jerusalem as the capital of a future Palestinian state.)
In many ways I sympathize with your statement, CI: "I'll never vote again.".....Our one vote seems ineffective to move these political mountains. One should never feel their vote is a waste of time, and yet, if enough of us feel the same, we can make a difference....our kind elected African American Barack Obama TWICE! Who would have THUNK!?! I can understand too, your withering criticism of US domestic and foreign policy because I too am exceedingly harsh in my comments regarding our country. I recall in a statement posted by you many posts ago where you were scathing in your comments regarding Obama's performance. I said to you "why not impeach him if you feel so strongly!" You see, I was one of these highly sensitive posters when it comes to my country resented your words. Since that time, I've found myself experiencing the same type of strong feelings you exhibited; I do not want to impeach him, but my anger is such that it's hurled towards the president. Why does he allow Israel to continue the massacre of hundreds of Palestinians when these poor defenseless people have their back pushed up against the wall? Where is the humanity for our unfortunate brother? An even deeper question is why is President Barack Obama afraid to speak out against the Israeli government?!
I have mentioned to my husband more than one time that I would like to move to another country, either France or Canada. He answers maybe, when we retire, and this is a goal to aim for especially if the US continues its meanly base downward spiral with emphasis on widening the gap between rich and poor.....
The US, once again, is undergoing birthing pains with the election of its 2008 first Black president. A new demographic is emerging, and in a few decades, when the old regime has died out, a new more enlightened one will hopefully surface, determined not to repeat the mistakes of the past.
