Tomorrow, we could have a president-elect who is a man with very bad character traits and a record of working with the enemies of our country.
There is no way to sugar-coat it.
For me personally, this has been the most wrenching presidential election in my lifetime.
I felt very strongly that Al Gore would be a political disaster for America. The administration in which he served as second banana for eight years had targeted me personally for political dirty tricks. It had hurt this country badly by covering up major Islamic terrorist attacks and mischaracterizing them as “accidents” or the work of others. It was an administration marked by lies, deceit, fraud and mysterious deaths.
Yet, despite all that, I still could not bring myself to endorse George W. Bush for president. I had severe misgivings about him – particularly with regard to his domestic agenda and his commitment to the Constitution.
Those misgivings have only been confirmed after four years.
Yet, the only alternative we have to a second term of Bush – like it or not – is John Kerry.
And, predictably, following the national security disasters of eight years of Bill Clinton, we now find ourselves in a global conflict with Islamic terrorism. We were attacked Sept. 11, 2001, in a way that could no longer be attributed to others nor dismissed as an accident. We were attacked massively – the worst attack ever on American soil.
Therefore, I believe it is a moral imperative that we re-elect George W. Bush today.
Admittedly, this is a vote I cast defensively – to protect myself, my family and my country from an enemy of the United States. I refer not only to Osama bin Laden and the evil ideology he represents. I refer, too, to John Kerry.
Some are too young to understand why I use such harsh rhetoric about Kerry. Some are too forgetful. Some never understood what John Kerry represented in the first place and still do not understand what he represents today.
He is a traitor.
I refer not to his scandalous activities while serving in Vietnam – though they are shameful. I refer to what he did when he returned.
There is no longer any doubt about what he did.
He lied about U.S. policy in Vietnam. He lied about the actions of our troops while they continued to fight for the freedom of the Vietnamese people and while many of our brave soldiers were still being held in prison camps. He met at least twice with the enemy in Paris. He took political direction from that enemy – representatives of the communist totalitarian government in Hanoi.
He gave aid and comfort to those enemies. He did their bidding here in the United States. And, tragically, he built a political career on that subversion.
There are only a couple words in the English language that describe that kind of activity – treason, sedition, treachery.
He is unfit to command. He is unfit to lead. He is unfit to serve in the White House. He is unfit even to run for the presidency. He is unfit to serve in the U.S. Senate.
However, because of the nature of politics in America, he continues to be seated in the Congress. He continues to run for the presidency. And today he could be elected to the highest office in the land.
We cannot allow that to happen.
Vote for George W. Bush today and defend America – not just from the enemies without, but, more importantly, from the enemies within.
