1) The doctrine of equality brings the end of progress. Progress of every sort throughout history has been propelled by the desire for inequality. Equality makes us poor, inequality (in a free society) makes us all richer, and yet more unequal. That is the conundrum, to some.p>2) Entitlements — “raising taxes, cutting spending, or both.” As long as we do not wish to solve the problem, there is a third way. Merely raise the age to receive entitlements to the point where these funds pay for themselves, however badly. That’s reality, so get used to it. br> — James Wilson /p>
You can stop with lie number #2, as far as I am concerned. As the mother of a serving son who fears that my son will be calling Obama Commander-in-Chief (please God, help us!), I fear those wars in places like Somalia and Sudan. Dems are free with the military in particularly strange causes. And since these Dem presidents don’t have nerve, when things get tight or difficult, they falter, resulting in lots of men and women killed. Picture Obama being in command, after this week’s incursion by Russia into Georgia. Obama’s spokesperson, Rice, started attacking John McCain’s stance (which was spot on), responding that Obama’s response was dictated by the facts when they became known. What the heck is that supposed to mean? When the enemy strikes you want someone fixed and decisive in charge.
To military families far and near it means this is a man that waffles, tries to second guess, doesn’t have backbone, if elected, will put those we love in harm’s way needlessly. We have seen this before and repeatedly from Carter to Clinton. And I thank God daily that Al Gore wasn’t President on 9/11, since our family had a son just beginning his service.
For those who want to draw insinuations that we “invaded” Iraq, I stick with Rush Limbaugh’s reminder yesterday that Iraq was already on a short string being monitored by the U.N. and having some 15 security counsel violations. Now that the main stream media has published reports of the tons of WMD’s found in recent months (no, you only heard about this on conservative sites, not a peep by MSM!), we can be grateful that the constancy of President George Bush reigned during this time. Not prone to poll-driven leading or to defending himself repeatedly, he sacrificed any personal dignity and vilification (and possible impeachment from the Nutroots), to stand firmly in the gap and defend our country.
I pray each day for God’s leading and that those who would destroy this fine life of freedom not succeed in their mission. Life with Sharia law should terrify most Americans, but only those of us who faced terrorism abroad in the 1980’s understand that our enemies are determined and their planning is for the long term, unlike our weak will to stay constant in anything we do.p>”Give me liberty or give me death,” said Patrick Henry, and for this fall election this should be our cry as well, in the face of hostile animus by our enemies. May we understand that who we vote to lead us could prove to be the most important election in the history of democracy. br> —
