Man 1: Another Bush?!
Man 2: ...Another Fred Thompson?
Womna: Another Reagan?!
Our three costliest and longest lasting wars were started by “Texans”- Viet Nam, Iraq ’91, Afghanistan, and Iraq (still, and just a continuation of ’91). One Democrat, two Republicans. There IS a connection that Texans rely more on “force” rather than “power”. Power, that does NOT DEPEND on military strength or violence, is far more powerful than “force” which does. Power requires intellect, persuasion, and lasting strength. Force is violent, and less effective in the long term- always. Look also where Rummy and Cheney have their affiliation.
Our real national problems today do not come so much from either political party as they do from that “Texas” and “old west” attitude, which is also quite false if real history is studied, that mandates “might makes right”- in the “violence” mode.
Gandhi, for one, proved that real power does NOT come from ever-lasting violence, but intellect- and that is where Perry is totally lacking. Bravado is not always courage, especially the kind that truly “wins”.
