I am not the one who needs the prayers you are. You have been lied to so much you are surprised by most things when they happen. Here is a surprise for you, JFK (a democrat) got the USA involved in Viet Nam not Nixon. Nixon started the withdraw from Viet Nam. Surprise surprise doen't that get you depressed you have been blaming the wrong party for you being in Viet Nam. Now for a little history, Democrats are resposible for getting the the USA into more wars then republicans. I do not disagree with the wars they got us into, it is just a fact of history who got us involved in them.
You are surprised that Obama could have radicals like Van Jones and Mark Lloyd and several others like the guy who wrote a book on population control and thinks it is ok to have forced sterilization of Americans (and the book give ideas on how to do this, and how to explain it away, from putting it in the drinking water to saying the constitution does not say any person has the right to have more then 2 children). Surprised, any American even has those ideas, much more so, that man is now advising our president on policies.
Here is a good example: It is harder to deal with someones death if it comes as a surprise, then if you know it will be coming.
