The reason we are bogged down in a never ending war is because of political bickering, and because of that, we should withdrawl.
The problem with voting for PATRIOT and such is that they remain there after a threat is gone, and they’re tough to remove again. Things could be completely peaceful and the Federal boys still have the authority to spy on this conversation.
