Progressives said that a vote for Romney was a vote for war with Syria. They were right: Republicans voted for Romney and we're getting war with Syria.Joe Biden mocked Mitt Romney’s foreign policy during the 2012 presidential campaign — but Obama-approved air strikes in Syria, which commenced Monday evening, suggest that the administration is coming around to the position of the former GOP nominee.“He [Romney] said it was a mistake to end the war in Iraq and bring all of our warriors home,” Biden told an audience in York, Penn., on September 2, 2012. “He said it was a mistake to set an end date for our warriors in Afghanistan and bring them home. He implies by the speech that he’s ready to go to war in Syria and Iran.”
People react badly when it's explicitly stated, but I believe that deep down inside most people understand that voting is for suckers. Elections are public liturgies where we formally swear our allegiance to liberalism.
