The Election

John Kerry thought the U.S. soldiers were the bad guys in Vietnam. John Kerry thought Ronald Reagan shouldn't try to end the Cold War with the Soviet Union. John Kerry didn't think chasing Saddam out of Kuwait was the right thing to do. And now, John Kerry thinks that the U.S. is the country that is doing the wrong thing. John Kerry fundamentally does not believe in the goodness of the American soldier. And John Kerry fundamentally doesn't believe that the U.S. is a force for good.

The United States has done so much good for so many people in this world. And we continue to do so under the impressive leadership of George W. Bush.

Originally, the U.S. was founded by settlers who couldn't take it in Europe any more. Today, many in this country think we need to be more like Europe. And Europeans want to paint the U.S. as an imperialist, largely so that people forget about the reckless imperialist globe trotting they did for hundreds of years. America does not need friends like France and Germany. Moreover, these are not the type of people we want to be friends with.

France and Germany hope that with John Kerry and the U.N. they can continue to expand their entitlement societies at the expense of the world. They don't want to recognize the realities of a new global competitive environment. And they don't want to compete.

John Kerry would be played like a fool on the world stage. He's weak and doesn't stand for anything. And he will fall for anything.

People can ridicule George W. Bush all they want. But his steady leadership is what the world needs. If 300 years from now people look back on the Reagan Presidency what would they say. Well, he is currently still brushing off the hysterical long-held claims of the media that he was an evil anti-christ, but the truth will only be evident in hindsight. And the truth is, he led the way to freedom for so many people. And what would those 300 years from now say about George W. Bush's first 4 years in office? He removed an evil dictator from power and just over 1,000 troops gave their lives liberating 50 million people from tyranny. That would be his legacy.

What to make of all the short-term claims of doom and gloom to win an election?

You don't say its going bad. You don't say there is no reason to be there. You definitely don't say soldiers are dying for no reason.

George W. Bush is optimistic about the future. If we played through every possible bad scenario as a basis for our decisions--- none of us would ever get out of bed.

I could trip and fall down the stairs. I could get run over by a car. I could spill chocolate syrup on my pants. So why ever try anything?

What kind of person runs a campaign on hatred and pessimism?

Believe in a better future.
