It's a good thing they didn't tell voters to jump off a bridge.

All the money political parties spend on campaigning, an the terrorists put out a 20 second ad, and influence the election.

Just as the coalition forces in Iraq can't have a "failure" until it's over

The terrorists can't "win" until it's over.

Do YOU think it's "over"?

The terrorists weren't running in the US elections were they?

The Democrats won, the Republicans didn't, the Terrorists weren't even contenders.

McLaughlin Group on this point, EdH. Most (including Pat Buchanan and Tony Blankely) believe that the House, at least, is now in Democratic hands at least until 2010, with the jury still out on the Senate and White House in 2008. I agree with that, assuming that Pelosi runs the House from the center and by compromise.

We're finally reversing the previously inexorable slide towards a police state in this country. In case you're unaware of the history, warrantless searches (under "writs of assistance") are commonly cited as one of the fundamental causes of the American Revolution; a famous 1761 case, with Declaration signer James Otis as a leading advocate, was one of the first open protests against British violation of Colonists' Rights:

The Writs of Assistance Case.

>>In addition to fueling the revolutionary spirit in the colonies, the Writs of Assistance case presented the first formidable challenge to general search warrants in the colonies. Otis thought that more restrictions should be placed on the government's authority to intrude upon places ordinarily kept private by homeowners and business proprietors. In America, Otis argued, the law should require that all searches be conducted pursuant to a lawful warrant that is obtained by an official who is placed under oath before a neutral third party and compelled to disclose the precise nature of any incriminating evidence. Any warrant that might be issued should fully describe the person or premises to be searched. The Fourth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution established these principles as a permanent part of U.S. criminal procedure. <<

You ain't seen nothin yet. Just wait until the Dems start their witch hunts. Things like police states come from unexpected sources DK. I'm surprised you haven't learned that yet. They come from the left, not the right.

spewing from you lately, police state. Could be possible if the left has their way.

The American left may not be in bed with the terrorists but try to tell that to the terrorists they think you're on their side. I agree with them, the American left and the worlds terror organizations do indeed have a lot in common.

Just my opinion of course. I hope you can prove me wrong.

But you prove DM's point. If you dismantle all the necessary mechanisms to fight the terrorist enemy we will be in deep trouble indeed. Since the Democrats seem determined to undermine the country in this fashion, the terrorists have indeed won a great victory.

And to think that you believe what the terrorists tell you, as well as what those unimpeachable news sources like the President of Iran, any member of Al Qaeda, Al Jazeerah and FoxNews says, but won't believe what thoughtful Americans (obviously not FoxNews or the rest on the payroll of the Republican National Committee) say.

You got a problem with Democracy, go dig up Thomas Jefferson and complain. I always suspected you were one of those one party state types. If so, move to China.

Way back when/before the liberation of Iraq I recall the Taliban/Al Qaeda saying that the civilians of the coalition forces countries did not have "staying power' and after a few years they would tire of fighting.

It's been a few years and?
