Well let's see, from the polls we see the biggest plurality by far is of 
the "stay in Iraq forever" type at 40%. And a majority supports less 
civil liberties as well as a military attack on Iran. Nice...you know, 
there is a reason the Democrats don't adopt any of our socialist 
positions. If they did, the American people would hand them their ass on 
a plate for the next 12 years. To have an electorally- viable socialist 
platform, you need a viable socialist-minded public, and no political 
party is going to "waste" election cycles as an investment on creating 
that consciousness. Americans are no better than Israelis in their 
public mindset now (how appropo); security before everything and 
anything is the slogan. And, also like the Israelis, by "security" we 
mean, security for our ability to impose insecurity on our weaker darker 
subjects, without reaping the consequences.
