"If we do not defeat these enemies now, we will leave our children to face a Middle East overrun by terrorist states and radical dictators armed with nuclear weapons," Bush said. "We are in a war that will set the course for this new century and determine the destiny of millions across the world."
"We are fighting to maintain the way of life enjoyed by free nations, and we are fighting for the possibility that good and decent people across the Middle East can raise up societies based on freedom and tolerance and personal dignity," Bush said. "By standing with democratic leaders and reformers, by giving voice to the hopes of decent men and women, we are offering a path away from radicalism."
"We will defeat our enemies ... we will protect our people .. and we will lead the 21st century into a shining age of human liberty," Bush said.
Once again Bush/Rove play the fear card. They want you to believe that without their diligence you are lost and without them a horde of Muslim fanatics will beat down you door and rape your daughter and eat your dog. It is them or us.
If you buy into this then I recommend you lock your doors and wait for the towel headed hordes to crash your door and ravage your family. Stop your life and crawl quivering into your basement. Just wait, because it is only a matter of time before the end draws nigh.
On the other hand you might reject this defeatist rhetoric and decide that America wasn't founded by lily livered cowards afraid of their own shadow and that the sacrifice of your self respect and personal liberties is too high a price to pay for the "Global War on Terror".
Either way, this November is the acid test. Do you want to cower in your closet or stand free and proud knowing that the price of freedom is real and requires a committment. There ain't no such thing as a free lunch. You are either a proud American that believes in the founding fathers and their gift of our Constitution and form of goverment or you are a coward and not willing to face the responsibility of being free. Your choice...it's a free country.
Here is my recommendation...
Stay focused on one and only one thing and this is the message.
You, as a voter have one and only one opportunity to do your job. As a voter you have only ONE DAY to hold the Bush Administration accountable for what’s happened in Iraq, Afghanistan, Abu Graib and Guantanamo not to mention what has happened here at home with Katrina and everything else. You only have ONE DAY — election day. If you like the way things are going, vote Republican. If you think things need to change, VOTE DEMOCRATIC. Seize the day. It’s your very last chance.”
