With the debt ceiling approaching, we again see the Republicans planning to hold the country hostage to their extreme agenda. And history has shown us that all we can expect from you is for you to collapse like a cheap card table when the pressure is on. A quick and easy way to get down under the limit would be to end Bush's shitty little war in Iraq and your shitty little war in Afghanistan. The people of both countries have made it clear that they do not want us in their countries so please stop sending Leftover Sec. of Defense Gates to try and change their minds. And with Gen. Petraeus about to retire, who is left to sponsor your shitty little war? You can always fire those who make too much noise for war. If you end these two huge capital drains and start closing our other imperial outposts around the world, the money saved would allow you to fund all the necessary programs and still pay down the debt.
Please Mr. President, end your shitty little wars now, we can't afford an empire.
