Why do Republicans think Democrats don't care about 9/11?
I live in Northern NJ. EVERYTHING is New York... My football team is the Giants. My Hockey team is the Rangers. (Sorry Devils fans, I was a hockey fan long before the Devils- I date back to Ron Dugay and the Espo brothers) My Baseball team is the Mets. I get the Daily News. I spend weekends in the Museum of Nat'l History and the Met. Museum of Art. I love Greenwich Village, love Central Park Zoo, love the Bronx Zoo, love the pizza, the bagels, the attitude. I am a New Yorker who lives in NJ. I worked at a bar in NJ where one of my regular customers and friends just got a hot new job working in the World Trade Center. He was there for 2 weeks. We raised a few beers to toast his success. He was incinerated. The only thing that remained of him was his company ID badge that was found 2 months after the tower collapse almost 1/4 mile away. His widow buried an empty coffin. The service was magnificent. 500 local NJ people overflowed the church onto the streets. I never ate at Windows on the World. I never got to stand on the observation deck. I have one picture of the Twin Towers that my boyfriend took over 9 years ago from a river cruise and I have never seen one better. My daughter will never know what those icons of America actually meant. How do you explain to a child that people hate and want to kill you simply because you disagree on beliefs that no one can prove are right or wrong? What I don't understand is why patriotism in citizens and politicians is so viciously attacked in the name of 9/11. I suffered more than a lot of people in this country. I lost a friend. I watched other people freak out until they knew where their loved ones were. I worried about my own father, who is an EMT, that he might be deployed into NY while the towers were falling. (His company responded, but was turned back before they reached the city) So why the hate on Dems, Repubs? Why don't you think we were outraged and traumatized as well as you? Why don't you think we want the perpetrators punished? I say "we" even though I am a registered independent. I vote Democrat about 90% of the time. I have twice voted Republican, both times in local elections. But don't question my patriotism or my principles. EDIT: Sorry, Rangers fans, I meant Espo and the MALONEY brothers! EDIT: Sorry, Rangers fans, I meant Espo and the MALONEY brothers! Shradel: I have no idea whether to give you a TD or a TU. I am not a douchebag. Yes, Republicans have hemorrhoids. Now what? BOB: Bush is way too stupid to pull off an inside job of this magnitude. He couldn't even manage a losing ball team. kcitsin: w*f do North/South Dakota have to do with anything else you mentioned? Ever been there? Protecting the natural resources of a state like South Dakota and standing up for the rights of the American Indians that live there is one of the reasons I always find myself voting Dem.

I don't think most repubs really believe that. Rather, they use 9/11 to scare the American people into voting for them. The scare tactics in the last election were so blatant I was amazed anyone actually fell for it.

First of all, Bush's brain is Carl Rove. And Cheney, Rove, and Rice easily have the brain power to pull off the attacks of 9/11. When Bush initially came into office, he wanted a way to invade Iraq. The people under him came up with the idea. And with his approval, they initiated the plan.
