Is it possible to think independently and agree with the Republicans on something? Just curious.
Most definitely! I voted for Bush. I think his leadership after 9-11 was fantastic even inspiring. His decision to invade Afghanistan and eliminate the Taliban was courageous and his conduct of that war was exemplary. In my eyes, he has perhaps saved more American lives than any other president in history.
I think he is a good, capable and honest man. That does not mean, however, that I agree with all of his actions or policies. Nor does it mean that I shouldnt voice my opinion when it differs with his. It is one of the virtues of political debate we can sometimes disagree with those we normally agree and sometimes agree with those we normally disagree.
