If you're seriously considering jumping on the Democratic bandwagon this fall, please reconsider.
The Republicans have done some very good things. The CBO says the deficit has dropped from the $423 billion to $250 billion. The CBO says the reason for the decline is better than expected tax receipts, especially from corporate profits. Because corporations have more money to keep, due to Bush's tax cuts, they're keeping more of their receipts and thus paying more taxes.
More good news is that gasoline prices are down sharply. The Dow Jones Industrials set a new record high last week. The unemployment rate now stands at 4.6 percent which is down from 6.3 percent in 2003, lower than the average of the 1970s, 1980s, or the 1990s, and equivalent to the unemployment rate in September 1998. Since August 2003, the economy has created 6.6 million new jobs. Those are all sterling accomplishments.
Still the Left in the MSM is in full propaganda mode in an attempt at swaying undecided voters away from the Republicans. The NYTimes ran this op-ed piece in which they continue to focus on giving terrorists just as much rights as you. They continue to hammer away at Gitmo, torture, abu-graib and the fact that Libs think that jihadis should know everything about our domestic surveillance methods. They continue to cast Bush as the root cause of all of the World's problems.
Cal Thomas over at Townhall.com writes eloquently for the case for voting Republican:
|Democrats have no plan for keeping America safe, or winning the war against the fanatics. They have opposed most of the Bush administration's domestic surveillance methods. They have opposed aggressive interrogation tactics designed to get information to protect us, including opposition to the detention center at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, where detainees are treated better than they could expect if they were detained in their homelands. |
This election isn't about House pages; it's about survival. In his new book, "America Alone: The End of the World As We Know It," columnist Mark Steyn states this irrefutable fact about the importance of winning in Iraq: "Being seen not to run - or, if you prefer, being seen to show resolve' - should be the indispensable objective of U.S. foreign policy. Were these colors to run from Iraq, it would be the end of the American era - for why would Russia, China, or even Belgium ever again take seriously a superpower that runs screaming for home at the first pinprick."
For all of their promises to do a better job of fighting this war, Democrats have no plan, other than retreat. That is the plan the terrorists have for us. Retreat is not in their playbook. The terrorists in Iraq and elsewhere don't speak of timetables for withdrawal or bringing their fighters home in time for Ramadan. They're in it for the long haul. They believe we are not. A victory by Democrats next month will validate their view and encourage them to fight harder.
Sure the GOP has made some mistakes but look beyond the headlines. Mistakes were made in Iraq but since when don't people make mistakes? No one said Iraq would be a 2 week war...we were prepped from the get go that this would be a long process. It took US forces 9 months to find Manuel Noriega in Panama. No wonder it's taking us so long to get Bin Laden.
The US people deserve better but they're not going to get better served by a Democratic congress. Harry Reid, Dick Durbin, Hillary Clinton, John Kerry, Ned Lamont, Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Shumer are moonbats. They are the phalynx of the Unhinged Left. They don't have a plan for anything - let alone something as complex and dynamic as a War. All they fall back on is Tax and Spend. They didn't even have the wherewithal to make Bush's tax cuts permanent. Instead of focusing on national security, they continue to focus on Mark Foley. Instead of closing our borders and enforcing our laws, they're focused on working with the ACLU to remove christian symbols from county seals. Instead of identifying and naming our enemies, they're busy bestowing "human rights" onto Jihadis who want to cut your throats and claiming that "cultural diversity" and "ethnic sensitivies" are paramount considerations.
Sorry folks. If the Democrats get a foot in the door this November, it's going to be a very cold winter. I just hope enough of us recognize what's going on and take action.
David Limbaugh's take on the topic is insightful and a must read.
