    Relations between government and public stand at an all time high thanks to
    forthright, earnest, efforts by the new generation of Republican congressman. They have refused to take money from PAC's. Thank you Republicans for helping this country be all it can be.
    Its is clear your interests are with the hard working men and women of this nation and not large corporations.
    Thank you for considering the end of Medicare, Medicaid, and social security.
    The American people can no longer afford these programs.

    Thank you for being strong like Ronald Regan and Dick Cheney. Two men who understood the importance of every increasing defense budgets. And the need for America to be the worlds preeminent military super power.
    Thank you congressman Corker for upholding the full faith and credit of the U.S government.

    Will Germany do the right thing and pull out of Afghanistan or will it cave in to the whims of the right-wing thugs in Washington and stay there indefinately? That I sincerely hope not!

    In genreal Germans are head strong....they don't follow they lead. What ever the decision it won't be because of Washington.

      The last time that any German Chancellor made any decision on his own since 1945 was when East German Chancellor Walter Unlbricht ordered the construction of the Berlin Wall in 1961.
