Mark Clayton on War & Peace
A: The US is engaged in an Iraq conflict which most now agree was not necessary and which America could not afford. America outlasted Communism after decades of global stalemate, only for the Bush and Clinton administrations to drive us into massive debt to the Communist Chinese for the Iraq conflict, a conflict which Congress still has not declared a war as required by the Constitution. This does not make sense. We must elect leaders who understand the long-term financial nightmare left to our children to pay, if we are to have a chance of getting a handle on the massive economic problems funding the Iraq conflict has caused. America cannot afford any more debt to the Communist Chinese over the Iraq conflict, nor can we afford, morally or financially, to be a global empire.
