Nasty Letters To Crooked Politicians

As we enter a new era of politics, we hope to see that Obama has the courage to fight the policies that Progressives hate. Will he have the fortitude to turn the economic future of America to help the working man? Or will he turn out to be just a pawn of big money, as he seems to be right now.

"The ballot in the midterm congressional elections in November will be crowded with a number of war veterans -- most of them newcomers to politics -- representing both parties.

And it appears that the U.S.-led invasion and occupation of Iraq will be a big issue when their campaigns get rolling this spring.

Most of the veterans are running for the U.S. House -- among them 44 Democrats and 41 Republicans, according to the congressional campaign committees of both parties. Most of them date their service back to Vietnam, the 1991 Gulf war or the ongoing war in Iraq.

Two veterans are seeking to unseat Senate incumbents. Army National Guard Capt. Hiram Lewis, a Republican who served in Iraq, is challenging eight-term Democratic Sen. Robert C. Byrd, of West Virginia. In Ohio, Paul Hackett, a Democrat and vocal anti-Iraq war critic, is running against Sen. Mike DeWine, a Republican seeking a third term."
