Some evidence Russ Feingold is opposed to the concept of war:
It's tough to claim opposition to the concept of war on one hand while being supportive of the means through which war is funded and stockpiled on the other.I guess it might possibly be, if that were really the case.
You know your argument is in serious jeopardy when you need to entirely fabricate a double standard in the very first sentence.
I suspect Senator Feingold is a relatively philosophical fellow and has studied and contemplated history and has, like many of us, come to the admittedly lamentable conclusion that preparedness for war, at least, is both inevitable and necessary.
And, as one of Wisconsin's federal representatives, he might be inclined to, where possible, secure those inevitable production jobs for his State and, once having done so, be further inclined to tout the success of that manufacturing facility in providing those jobs.
Would Russ Feingold be even more pleased if Oshkosh Corp. was a maker of papier-mâché flowers and Valentine's Day cards that play Kum ba ya when you open them up? Perhaps he might be. But, for better or ill, that isn't quite how humanity has tended to operate.
