Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
AND military?  It is part of the deal.  You do not get to pick and choose.  

If you are okay with that I don't have much to add.  Except that no, I am not okay with fascism in any of its forms.  

And that is what you get, with complete inevitability.  

This alone contra-indicates nuclear power.  

The destruction of health and life are just--how do we say it--overkill.  

The Fates are kind.

Nope, I don't want the military.

I know the military well enough to know I don't want military types in charge of anything, the military itself above all.

And yes, I get to choose. It's called democracy. You get to choose your elites. In the end, that's what democracy is about. Picking which elites you like best or, at least, dislike least.

When it goes right, you get someone like Gore.

Though, when it goes wrong, you get Bush. That's when you know your democracy is fucked...
