    The "right" says we are at war, and the recent, of three terrorist attempts on American soil, is proof that these extremists want to bring the war on terror to our shores!

    The "left" continues to spin these violent attempts to be merely individuals that don't like the West. While they call these guys terrorists, they continue to treat them like mere criminals.

    The "right" wants the military to question the terrorists; keep Guantanamo open; torture our POW's; and recall the military in order to dispatch them to our now "porous" borders in order to stop the bad guys from coming over.

    The "left" wants to treat any person caught in an attempt to unleash violence here in America, as common thugs, criminals, and simply arrest them, read them their Miranda Rights, and put them on trial in our local court system, and send them to jail for their crime.

    Just who is right ??? And what is the best way to approach this problem, and real it in before it gets completely out-of-control and too big for local law enforcement, Homeland Security, the FBI, and our court system to handle?

    This is your chance to "sound-off" and make your opinion count. And don't forget to voice your opinion on the attached poll...

    Shalom,

    Under Obama the war with extremists is only with those perceived to be on the Right - or anyone else who disagrees with the current regime.

    Neither the left nor the right, is right. Both rely on heavy handed big government force and coercion to "treat" the problems it helped create.

    Then who is right? The founders of this great nation (the Jeffersonians mainly) had it right all along but we didn't listen. Maybe it's time we started listening to them, intently.
