Support the troops: Send them home

Everyday I see ribbons on cars, some buildings and in yards to "Support our Troops." A very noble thought, but one that is filled with hypocrisy if you haven't taken the time to call, write, or e-mail your U.S. Senator or Representative and demanded that they end this war in Iraq immediately, bring our troops home now and stop any kind of military action in Iran. There is no excuse for us to not do this, as the information on their addresses, phone numbers and e-mail addresses are posted in the paper every week. We, the people, hold the power of this land in our hands if we use our voices. Hate begets hate, war begets war. You get what you give. The Bush administration has given nothing but lies, dishonesty, hate, fear, intolerance, disrespect and pure disdain. He has claimed that he is above the laws of our land and our Constitution. He has given us a black eye around the world. And, to top it off, he has decreased funding to our military and veterans hospitals since he has taken office.

Our men and women have given their lives, souls and parts of their bodies for this lie in the Middle East what is it going to take for us to demand ENOUGH?
