Supporting the misguided Bush Administration has nothing to do with supporting the troops. The Republican party has made it very plain to every person that has served in the military, is currently serving in the military or ever will serve in the military that no act of heroism for your country or act of heroism for your home or act of heroism for your brothers and sisters in arms is worth ‘a hill of beans’ unless you submit to a particular agenda masquerading as conservative Republican.
The sad thing is they’ve made very clear to any soldiers, airman, seaman, or marines that may have been tempted to tell the American people the truth, whether it’s about the war, lack of proper military equipment, or their own mistreatment through sub-par states-side medical treatment, to keep they’re mouths shut except when regurgitating the Neoconservative talking points because they’re testimony is worthless and threatening to the Bush administrations public image.

Free speech is under attack in this land that once cherished it so deeply. The whole nation is a free speech zone. Loving your country also means loving its constitution.
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press, or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
These are the Democratic Senators who have shamed themselves by voting against this long cherished amendment but by also allowing themselves to be bullied by Republican intimidation.

Political correctness is more a comical myth among liberals than truth and where it does exists its about showing respect to those different than us. But, it’s become a frightening reality among the growingly fascist right. The deviants in the dark bowels of the Republican Party along with their media propagandists have taken this notion of political correctness to issues of importance to the American people in order to belittle them or to put pressure on anyone even beginning to entertain any idea that is not Neocon acceptable. True political correctness exist within the ‘you’re either with us or against us’ right wing of the conservative end of the Republican Party. Qualifications matter little to this group compared to strict party loyalty down to accepting every single party principle of the moment. It is not possible to say something is, for example, truly blue when party loyalty demands it to be red.
