Well...I don't support him as much as I used to
That's progress! Good for you!
but I do still support his decision to go to war and I also support our troops.
I don't know anybody on this board who doesn't support the troops, but you will have a hard time trying to convince anybody on this board that Bush should have invaded Iraq.
Being new here....I'm not seeing too many conservatives around these parts....lots of angry liberals.... Do you not allow opposing views?
Yes, we allow opposing views as long as those with the opposing views obey the posting guidelines. So far, you have, and that shows that perhaps you will be one of the first conservatives we've had here in recent months who wanted to discuss political topics collegially. They've all simply come here to flame, abuse, and otherwise try to create discord rather than discussion. However, you seem to be one of those rare conservatives, Venus...one who is able to actually disagree respectfully, and I hope that continues.
You're welcome here, so please don't think that we can't talk about topics that we might not be able to agree on. It's my wish that at the end of day, we can part friends. What has to take place is one person simply listening to the viewpoints of others...really listening...and then being flexible enough to actually admit that perhaps there is merit in the other person's opinion.
While I, for one, will never be convinced that GWB is anything but a monstrous criminal along with all of his entourage, I think you and the other members of this board, myself included, can still find some common ground upon which to agree....even if it's just in the CHIT-CHAT BAR!
