Karl, you're dreaming. His VP would throw Israel, or his mother, under the bus for a few more votes and he has no abiding principals that anyone can point to. Look at his record and that of his running mate re Israel. There are no bounds, and these guys will see election as a clear mandate, to do what? Do you believe that they stand on principal or do you believe they will do whatever gets them the most votes. Rhetoric can sound great but it is malleable...i really meant DUH.. ..depends on what the meaning of the word is is ..etc. Look at the record please. I don't wan't to see the Jewish people as the sacrificial lambs, again.

You don't like Palin. Why? She's an individualist rather than a collectivist?

In a perfect world Israel would prefer to be collectivist? it seems to me that most of the world believes Jews, are collectivists,and "march in block", hence, Zionism has become, via our media, an "evil" concept. It is not, and is not as it as it is depicted, but that's for another time.

It is only with principle we stand and save Israel. Principle is something that differentiates the various voting factions. Like 'em or not Palin stands for a set of Principles. She is an individualist with strong ideas and foundation, again like 'em or not. Please think about this . Despite the conventional wisdom, people don't necessarily view the world through a prism of self interest, or group identity interests, and an individualist is the best equipped to look after, and remedy, the collective.

In a fight, who do you want in your corner?
