Republicans and miltary men on John McCain

Equal in strength to my sense of hope at the thought of Barack Obama as President, is my terror at the idea of John McCain as Commander in Chief.

The video mostly just sent chills down my spine, but at the end, during the footage of casualties, I couldn't help but feel sorrow at the needless pain and loss of life. How can people bring themselves to deliberately inflict pain on - or even end the life of - another human? (3 hankies)

McCain wants more wars. McCain shouldn't have a chance of winning, but biased media coverage, the right wing noise machine, voter ignorance, voter suppression, and the heavy support of monied interests mean that there is still the real danger that he could end up in the Oval Office. I hope we can overcome the very real and very difficult hurdles that are in our path back to sanity.
