matter what your thoughts were on the 2000
election, I hope we all can agree George W. Bush won the 2004
presidency. Furthermore, as Americans, I hope we all can rally
behind our President and support our troops. Make no mistake about
it. In order for us to support our troops, we have to stand behind
our President. That's not to say we have to agree with everything
he says and does, but rather we must trust he will perform his duties
with our Republic's best interest ahead of his own. Such a vote of
confidence will indirectly secure our troops and our nation.
Now, if you think bringing the fight to the
terrorists was wrong, you are not supporting our troops. If
you don't believe in their mission or you don't understand why they
are in Iraq, you are not supporting our troops. For decades Iraq was
the epicenter of terror and a sanctuary for terrorists. And while liberals
blindly question our presence in Iraq and suggest we don't have world
support, they ignore the largest scandal in the history of mankind--the
Oil for Food Scandal.
France, Germany, Russia, and China (the world
according to the liberals) did not support the invasion of Iraq because
they were in Saddam Hussein's back pocket. The liberal world choose money
over security. But where was the world's outcry when France invaded the
Ivory Coast? I heard not a peep, not even a mouse.
There are a number of reasons we are in Iraq, but
the number one reason is for our national security. Also, America needs to
understand our presence in Iraq sends a clear and distinct message to
the world and to anyone who wishes to do us harm. Attack the United States
at your own peril. Hit us and we will wipe you from this planet.
After 9/11 we don't need anyone's approval when it comes to our
Also, establishing a democratic Iraq
will mark the beginning of the end to many terrorists Don't get
me wrong, I do not delude myself in believing there won't always be
people willing to terrorize us and others, but with a democratic
Iraq as a model for other countries to emulate, the terrorists will
have fewer partners-in-crime as they did in Iraq.
To truly support our troops, we
have to believe in their mission and know what they are doing is
necessary. Just saying we support our troops is not enough. We
must give our troops every resource at our disposal and that
includes to let them complete their objectives without fetter.
No matter your politics, we are all Americans and the cost of freedom
is always too high, but it is a continual debt to be paid by our
military. To think otherwise is a true disservice to the men and
women who have sacrificed their lives trying to keep us safe and free.
Granted, Kerry supporters will find it
difficult to back a man they consider to be incompetent. But if
Bush is incompetent, what does that make John Kerry? He lost.
And for that matter, what does that make all those people who voted
for Kerry? More than half of Kerry's votes were cast not because
voters liked Kerry, but because they didn't like Bush. And why was
that? I'll tell you why. It was because the left and the liberal
media lied, deceived, and mislead the American people. Americans
were told Bush was wrong for our republic for one reason or another,
but the mainstream media's unrelenting Bush bashing was a blatant
attempted to influence the outcome to our election, and if I'm not
mistaken, such actions are criminal.
Immediately after the elections, Kerry
supporters were so distraught by Bush's victory they quickly sought
therapy and were diagnosed with an apparently rare psychological
disorder called Post Election Selection Trauma. I agree these
people could be consider pests, but a more appropriate nomenclature
for this disorder would be Liberal Opinion Selection Election
Reaction Syndrome (LOSERS). But with all kidding aside and to show
my compassion for the left, I believe these people were simply
suffering from extreme disappointment. Sadly, they are still in a
state of denial because they won't accept reality. They were so
convinced John Kerry was going to win. However, it is now time for
them to get over it.
Also, days following the election, many
liberal pundits questioned how nearly 60 million people could be so
stupid. I, myself, contemplated this same question. How could so
many people be so stupid to vote for a man who is a self-admitted
war criminal, for a man who committed treason by conspiring with
our enemies, and for a man who caused more pain and suffering for
our military men and women than has had any individual in the
history of our republic? Notice I've not mentioned Kerry's twenty
years in Congress, or his record siding against legislation that
would secure our nation.
I'll tell you why Kerry lost. He never
defined himself or stated what he stood for. Bush won because America
knew what he stood for and trusted he would do nothing short of what is
best for our republic. Most of America just didn't trust John Kerry.
I think self-serving interests have always motivated Democrats
to seek the highest office in our land, and Kerry was no exception.
America did not see the Democrat's offering exhibit any love of country
or patriotism found in the likes of George W. Bush, but I digress.
I think I've stumbled upon the answer to
the question. "How so many people could be so stupid?" First however, I
think stupid is far too harsh a term to explain this phenomenon.
I instead think most people are just misinformed and just don't know
the complete truth. I think most people are easily mislead.
Now I've reached this conclusion without a complicated study on the human
psyche or a grant from the government, so I could be wrong. I used only my limited
observation of the everyday person and saw how most people were too
busy or were just not willing to seek out the truth about an issue,
or in this case, the truth about a particular candidate. Most people
believe what they see or hear the mainstream media machine churns out.
I call this "blind compliance."
Many people in our electorate fall in this
category. They never question what they're spoon-fed by the liberal
media. And now they are confounded as to why so many people voted
for George W. Bush. If you listened carefully to many Democrats
before the election, you would have heard them echo the left and
the liberal media bias against George W. Bush. "He's a moron...an
idiot...a tyrant...another Hitler."
But when confronted with facts or proven
fraud, most Democrats quickly qualify their own sources as "the best."
When questioned where they get their news, they rattle off the most
liberal news agencies in America. And there in lies their problem.
Without knowing it, they've been dipped in the vile political waters of
The likes of CBS, CNN, and the New York
Times have been for decades presenting their reports with a liberal
slant. And during this last election, these supposed impartial news
agencies could hardly hide their desire to help get Bush out of office.
During the run up to the election, all the major news outlets
presented America with pro-Kerry and anti-Bush reports.
Thankfully, most of America questioned their
actions and questioned why bad news for our country helped John Kerry.
Why dead American soldiers meant more support for Kerry? Why a bad
economy and lost jobs made Kerry look better than Bush? Why
American-bashing was good for the Kerry campaign? I don't want to
be the one to pop their liberal bubble, but America saw through
their dishonesty and re-elected a man who loves his country.
Yet the liberal mantra of "diversity and
tolerance" continues to be chanted. But when confronted with an
opposing view, liberals immediately become intolerant. Why is that?
Simple. They really don't want diversity or tolerance. They only
want you to think like they do, or they will shut you up. The
Democrats don't want to improve your life situation. They just
want your vote so they can regain their power. Never forget they
were in power for forty years and what did we get? A large portion
of our society is and has been dependent on the government.
I'm not against the government helping people. I agree there are times
when the government should help people to their feet when they are down.
This act of compassion is perfectly fine, but I draw the line when I see
a political party purposefully imprison generations of people into a life
of poverty only in hope to receive their votes. People living off the teat
of society is not exceptable.
Moreover, liberals believe government is the
solution to all our problems, while conservatives know government is
the cause. Liberty is the only solution to the human condition.
If you carefully listen, you'll notice that the today's liberal is
yesterday's Marxist. Liberalism is not what it was forty years ago.
Nonetheless, we cannot forget our countrymen and
women are sacrificing their lives everyday to keep our republic safe
and free, and the longer it takes the liberals to get onboard with
our President; the more of American blood will be spilt on the sands
of Iraq. I ask all Americans to come together and stand behind our
President, and fight against all who wish our republic harm,
as we did on September 12th, 2001. God bless you all, and God bless our
