The most popular election video on Youtube

I'm not surprised. It's simple, true, straight forward, and basic. Especially the last line.


Dear Mr. Obama,
Having spent twelve months in the Iraq theater, I can promise you this was not a mistake. I've witnessed firsthand the many sacrifices made for the people of Iraq. Those sacrifices were not mistakes. The Iraqi people are just like us. They want a chance to live in a secure world: free from tyranny, free from terrorism, free to prosper, free to raise their children and pass on a future. Are they better off today than they were in 2002? You bet. I've seen many men sacrifice their lives for the Iraqi people. They died for a purpose, not a mistake. They died giving hope. They died promoting freedom. Do you rescue a fireman just as he's about to save a child? When you call the Iraqi war a mistake, you disrespect the service and the sacrifice of everyone who has died promoting freedom. Freedom carries with it a price. Because you do not understand or appreciate these principles, sir, I am supporting John McCain for President. He, too, made a huge sacrifice promoting freedom... because he understands the fundamental truth: freedom is always worth the price.
