Of the People, By the People, For the People?

From CNN.....Poll: Most in U.S. say Iraq war not worthwhile

"A majority of Americans do not believe it was worth going to war in Iraq, according to a national poll released Tuesday.

Fifty-seven percent of those polled said they did not believe it was worth going to war, versus 41 percent who said it was, according to a CNN/USA Today/Gallup poll of 1,006 adults.

That was a drop in support from February, when 48 percent said it was worth going to war and half said it was not.

It's also the highest percentage of respondents who have expressed those feelings and triple the percentage of Americans who said that it was not worth the cost shortly after the war began about two years ago."

Here's my question.....if US taxpayers choose to not spend their funds this way, when does the US exit its occupation of Iraq?

Or is this not still a democracy......of the people, by the people, for the people?
