Jes' so there is no confusion as to where I stand

Ever'where I seem to turn here lately, I find a really good push to try to get as many people as possible to vote in this year's election. Now, there might be some room to question the motive for some of such efforts here and there, but it appears to me that it is a good thing to have as many people as possible actually vote. I am thinkin' 'bout how excitin' it might be for people who never voted before to go into that booth to make their selection, then I read somethin' like this that I found over on The World Around You, and I begin to wonder what the heck is goin' on. These supposed unconnected groups supportin' each side throwin' dirt at each other seems to have escalated to a new high.

Let us forget about Viet Nam, already. Let us go to what we do know:

  • Kerry is a ghost. He refuses to take a firm stance on any issue.
  • George W. Bush had 9/11 thrust in his lap, and on this anniversary of that tragedy atrocity,* I have seen him work hard to clean terrorists out of places like Afghanistan and Pakistan. I have seen him take a hard stance against the known terrorist, Saddam Hussein, because he was a terrorist who refused to comply with the rules that the World had established for the supervision of Iraq's weapons development. He didn't waffle or waiver a whit -- he jes' did what he said he would do.

I guess I gotta fall in line with all those others and jes' say that I feel safer knowin' there are a lot fewer terrorists runnin' 'round out there. Not negotiating with terrorists still seems to be the best response.

I think it is a proper use of the name of the Deity when I say, Thank God for George W. Bush!

*I found Jay Tea's argument to be persuasive.

I'm the exact opposite. I hate the "get out the vote" drives. I figure that if someone is so apathetic that they haven't followed any of it so far, they really should just defer to those of us who are paying attention. I think that the fact that most "get out the vote" drives are organized by left-of-center groups says a lot about who benefits from uninformed apathetic voters more.

If you believe there are a lot FEWER terrorists out there then you and Mr. Bush deserve each other.

The terrorists attack America because of our freedom.

FACT: W and his cronies have done more damage to our individual freedoms then any president in recent history. It's going to be decades before the courts have a chance to reverse the damage.

I believe 9-11 was a tragedy, but I think that the assault on the constitution is an atrocity!

We can win without giving in!
