John Kerry is a Straight Shooter

I have long said that American politics today are still shaped largely by the Vietnam War era. It was then that radical left-wing liberalism took hold within the Democrat party and flourished into what we have seen over the past 30 or 40 years. On the other hand, the Republicans, starting with Richard Nixon, have long been cast as warmongers and the enemy of the poor, minorities, and women. In fact, one of the core elements of the Democrat party's ideology is anti-war "pacifism". They still FERVENTLY subscribe to this belief because they saw the United States as waging a corporate-driven war against the peaceful agrarian Vietnamese people. They point to atrocities that were committed against the Vietnamese and proclaim the righteousness of their anti-war and anti-Republican beliefs.

Now what I find tremendously ironic is that here in the 2004 presidential election campaign the Democrats, long believers in a "pacifist" anti-war philosophy based on their perspective on the Vietnam War, are rallying behind their candidate who personally admitted to having shot in the back and killed a Vietnamese boy who was running away from him. This candidate is, of course, John F. Kerry. Did you get that?

Democrat presidential candidate John F. Kerry admits to having shot and killed a fleeing teenage boy.

Now, two of the biggest complaints that the Republicans level toward John F. Kerry is that he is rarely very specific with what he intends to do and also that he flip-flops back and forth on issues. In other words, Kerry is not a "straight shooter." Some people say that I always agree with the Republican Party's positions. This is not always true. This is one of those times. So here it goes...

You COULD call John Kerry a "straight shooter" if he is firing at fleeing Vietnamese children!

Learn The Facts Before you Vote!

Learn The Facts Before you Vote!


Just think about....

There were 39 combat related killings in Iraq during the month of the fair city of Detroit there were 35 murders in the month of January. That's one American city folks, about as deadly as the entire war torn country of Iraq.

Worst president in history?

The following appeared in the Durham, NC local paper as a letter to the editor. Please forward to all on your list as this will put things in perspective:

Liberals claim President Bush shouldn't have started this war. They complain about his prosecution of it. One liberal recently claimed Bush was the worst president in U.S. history.

Let's clear up one point: We didn't start the war on terror. Try to remember, it was started by terrorists BEFORE 9/11. Let's look at the "worst" president and mismanagement claims

FDR led us into World War II. Germany never attacked us: Japan did. From 1941-1945, 450,000 lives were lost, an average of 112,500 per year.

Truman finished that war and started one in Korea. North Korea never attacked us. From 1950-1953, 55,000 lives were lost, an average of 18,333 per year.

John F. Kennedy started the Vietnam conflict in 1962. Vietnam never attacked us.

Johnson turned Vietnam into a quagmire. From 1965-1975, 58,000 lives were lost, an average of 5,800 per year.

Clinton went to war in Bosnia without UN or French consent, Bosnia never attacked us. He was offered Osama bin Laden's head on a platter three times by Sudan and did nothing. Osama has attacked us on multiple occasions.

In the two years since terrorists attacked us, President Bush has liberated two countries, crushed the Taliban, crippled al-Qaida, put Nuclear inspectors in Libya, Iran and North Korea without firing a shot, and captured a terrorist who slaughtered 300,000 of his own people. We lost 600 soldiers, an average of 300 a year. Bush did all this abroad while not allowing another terrorist attack at home.

Worst president in history ?

Come on!

The Democrats are complaining about how long the war is taking, but...It took less time to take Iraq than it took Janet Reno to take the Branch Davidian compound. That was a 51 day operation.

We've been looking for evidence of chemical weapons in Iraq for less time than it took Hillary Clinton to find the Rose Law Firm billing records.

It took less time for the 3rd Infantry Division and the Marines to destroy the Medina Republican Guard than it took Teddy Kennedy to call the police after his Oldsmobile sank at Chappaquiddick.

It took less time to take Iraq than it took to count the votes in Florida!

Our military is GREAT!

Our president is doing a GREAT job!
