Reader comment on item: Predicting the 2008 U.S. Presidential Election
in response to reader comment: regarding post polling musings

To bad you don't tune in more often. You seem to have a "handle" on things.

I've always been an Aussie fan, but see your nation just a few steps behind ours - indulged in self-indulgence. You aren't as far along as us yet, and Great Britain is much further lost than the both of us. My desire is that the Australians keep as informed as you apparently are.

It just seems to be the same old historical process, though. A nation fights hard to achieve freedom, independence, security, and wealth for all. The slope gets pretty slippery from there on. I see the same pride that the U.S. once had, and the pioneer spirit.

However, once the U.S. military has been subdued through an Obama/Clinton (yes, I said, "Clinton") administartion, and a cakewalk Islamic presence here, the world has no military in the west anymore to confront Communist and Islamic expanshionist directions. I'm not to aware of what Australia has in the way of a strong world military, but I don't think without Europe and the U.S., that it will be a factor when Russia and the Muslims fully see the newly castrated U.S. Great Britain is hit and sinking. The rest of Europe is strongly dominated by a large Muslim presence that is very intimidating.
