Then let's impeach Lincoln. He killed more Americans than any other President!

(yes, I'm leveling the exactly-correct amount of seriousness that this thread deserves)


I believed they most referred to themselves as Virginians and North Carolinians at the time.

the 2016 election should be interesting.

Hillary is basically a (mostly) unrepentant hawk, she supported Iraq, as well as new interventions in Libya and Syria. If she wins the election, it proves that Americans still support Bush-style policies (or at least aren't that opposed to them).

But Hillary changed her stance on Iraq when it became unpopular, which is good enough for many voters this many years later.

indeed (so did Bush btw). however is subsequent stances on Libya and Syria show that she has not actually changed her stance.
