It truly is up to you

By Remy Benoit

This evening you heard President Bush, Senator Jack Reid's response to the speech, and John Edwards.

Each of them made their points.

The bottom line is that elected representatives, no matter how high the office, are supposed to not only lead, but to represent the will of the People.

You are the People; these are the contact addresses:

Contacting Congress.

White House.

Do you want a decades long presence in Iraq; an immediate withdrawl; a timeline for withdrawl?

This is your responsibility - to use your voice.
How can you expect representatives to be responsible ( response able ) unless you let them know your wishes?

Tell them your view of the United States; your view on real homeland security; and your view concerning this war in Iraq.

Now is the time. You might mention to your feelings about extending war to Iran and Syria, which are possibilities.
