Through out the history of our nation, since it?s founding in the fire of revolution in 1776, we have spent more time at war through either actual fighting or in proxy wars, than we have at peace.
We have fought wars against almost every major European power, including ones who are now our allies, such as Britain, France, Spain, Germany, Italy, as well as nations that are still not so friendly such as Russia.

In a recent post on his blog Red Baron, Chris Baron of GOProud made the claim that those on the left hate him when he wrote…
The left rarely engages me on policy, which is smart considering they support intellectually and morally bankrupt policies and I support time-tested policies that would actually improve the lives of all Americans – including gays and lesbians. Instead of engaging on policy they rely on personal attacks and name-calling, which is fine, I am a big boy and I can take it.
In the comments I made a civil reply with..
I think it’s more due to the fact that you support virulently anti-gay candidates.
I’m paraphrasing that one since I didn’t take a screen shot of it, expecting Chris to engage in a discussion on the topic. Unfortunately he seems to have taken card right out of the playbook of anti-gay hate groups like the Family Research Council and deleted my comment instead of actually debating the topic.
In another post where Chris praises Herman Cain I again post in the comments, this time asking Chris how he can support someone that is against both civil unions and marriage equality. Unfortunately, Chris once again deletes my comment instead of engaging me in polite civil debate.
All, in all it makes Chris’s post about the left not engaging him on policy a little disingenuous, because I have tried several times now to engage Chris on policy.
In yet another post praising Anti-gay Herman Cain I see that someone else has made a valid and civil comment bringing up Herman Cain’s anti-gay record. I wonder how long it will be before it gets deleted.
