In a cross-entry on both my Twitter.com and Facebook.com pages, I just posted: "Hey, Minnesotans, take to the streets and protest that your senate election is being held up by Norm Coleman. Join with Iranian patriots." 

While I abhor violence that has been shown on various news networks like CNN, MSNBC and yes, Fox concerning these protests, I commend the citizens of Iran for taking to the street when they feel their election may have been stolen.  They are sure showing us up when NO one took the streets en-masse after the Bush V. Gore decision was handed down.  We were told to accept that decision, and forgot that this government is of, by and for we the people.

In the Bush V. Gore decision five out of the nine Supreme Court justices became more powerful than ‘we the people’.  Americans should have come to the aid of all Floridians whose votes were stolen in that election.  Let us take care of our own affairs first when it comes to democracy before telling others how democracy works. 

As much as some want the President to be more forceful when it comes to these violent protests: Are they itching to start another war?  Isn’t three enough?!  Are they forgetting that Iran has strong ties to both Russia and China and what will they say of any intervention in this Iranian affair by the United States of America?  Please remember who holds the cards here as America is facing an economic firestorm where we continue to borrow huge sums of money from China.  Can you see China cutting off the money supply? This is the tight-rope that the President has to be mindful of as some want and demand he interfere.

I would bring North Korea and the President does have a lot on his plate and wish to remind my readers that North Korea as well has strong ties with Russia and China.  As our military is at the breaking point being deployed, redeployed over and over in the wars we are already engaged in, Russia and China’s are not.
