Your view: Voting Republican

Thursday, September 2, 2004

If anyone had doubts about the agenda of the Democrats, the Sunday evening news on NBC should have dispelled them.

From the pulpit of a church in New York, "Slick Willie" and his "not stand by my man" wife, Hillary, were allowed to demean the President of this country while touting the virtues of their candidate, John Kerry who, by the way, is planning to address the nation during the Republican Convention, showing his true colors and lack of respect for anyone. All of this is an attempt to focus the limelight on himself and detract from the convention.

If you want to keep your head in the and, then so be it. Personally, I get the voting records from the Congressional Printing Office and read for myself. Sure, it's a little work, but at least I am informed and take no one's word for anything, especially the very liberal media.

If I make a mistake, it is mine. Incidentally, I am a registered Democrat, but have enough sense to vote for the person I feel will do the best job.

Many of you feel we shouldn't be in Iraq. Perhaps you're right, but had we allowed the World Trade Center, the Pentagon and Flight 93 go unanswered, those would have been the least of our problems.

I have a grandson who has been in both Afghanistan and Iraq and he strongly supports our efforts over there, as do most of the military involved.

No WMDs were found! So? Why did we sit in Kuwait for two months, giving Hussein ample time to move them out? This made no sense to me and it was not the President's call.

As for jobs leaving, that started long before the man was ever elected. What have you purchased in the last 10 years that has been made in this country? Not much. Everything from clothing to farm implements is manufactured somewhere else.

Get your own information and become an informed voter! Just because it's on the news doesn't make it accurate.
