I am learning Hindi and Urdu at the same time, but Urdu is much harder to learn as there are few teachers or classes in it where I live. Sometimes I will make an error in my answer because I am far from fluent, but I am getting better as time goes on..

• Why would someone who is not very rich vote for a republican?

I am confused. Republicans only care about rich people and corporations. They would not care if all the "small people" died due to lack of health insurance. So why would you vote for a republican if you are not super rich? Isn't it equivalent to putting yourself into serfdom?

• What would you like to ask?

Is Sarah Palin one of those "end of times" people and will she favor using nuclear weapons to get Jesus to come back? Should we be worried about these crazies taking over the USA?

• Shouldn't the CIA be done away with already?

The CIA has always been a private dirty army used soley by the President. Its history of wrongdoings such as toppling democratic regimes for dictatorships to support the interest of large corporations is probaby thousand of pages long. When people abroad seek revenge on America for its wrongdoings they just call it "blowback." It is speculated that 9/11 itself is a case of this "blowback." There is not any real oversight on what it does by congress nor any other governmental agency and its budget and expeditures are classified which is actually unconstitutional as according to the constitution, the public has a right to see where its money goes. Furthermore it has failed to really collect anything useful and did not prevent 9/11. So what do you think? How long can such an entity that kidnaps people and takes them to be tortured in secret prisons be tolerated by the Amercian People?
