  1. Mr. Cheney is likely to go down in history with his own teeth being pulled by his own lost values on liberty and wellness. This is a man whose hand is on his heart, but his foot is on your forefather’s head. This man has not been faithful for human interest, but yet he does have confused friendships of human blessing. A world of wonder actually from a mental health point of view.

    Give him credit though, his views on torture are like a diamond without an edge. They might be listened to by a number of scared people.

    Overall, we need liberty, not lost values.

    No thanks Mr. Cheney.
