Fear Mongering

Tonight, the Republican National Convention concluded exactly how Karl Rove had wanted it to -- with pomp and ceremony trumpeting a 'war time President'. The man who is villainized by liberals everywhere has guided President Bush since his early days as Governor of Texas and is Dubya's political guru. Despite all the cheering crowds, standing ovations and, false, bi-partisanship, the Republican Convention was, in fact, little more than a carefully choreographed effort to scare the American people in to voting for the incumbent.

Whereas the Democratic Convention kept a very positive tone the Republicans went entirely negative very early on in the convention. The Democrats almost never mentioned the President by name and often spoke about the promise of the future. The did not take liberties with the facts and they spoke of a grand future. Barrack Obama, the superstar Democratic candidate for Senate from Illinois, in particular delivered a stunningly positive speach. The Republicans, on the other hand, were full of doom and gloom. Constantly speaking of how September 11th had changed the world forever, and things could never return to normal.

Pardon me, but I thought the goal of the war on terror was to return things to normal?

Even John McCain, normally a liberl Republican, joined the fray speaking of a "bright September morning...destroyed by savage atrocity." Rudy Gulliani, wives of 9-11 victims and even Democrat Zell Miller all spoke about the same thing. 9-11 has left an indelible mark on American society, but only because politicians and the media are so desperate to force that mark onto ever single American for their own selfish reasons. As long as we listen to their propoganda we play by their rules. Less than 3,000 people died on 9-11, yet we have spent the last three years having the memories of that day rammed down our throats every single day by a government that does very little to prevent it from happening again. At the same time, this self same government claims they are protecting Americans while running around making the world more dangerous by starting meaningless wars.

Be afraid. Be very afriad.

How long is it going to take for you left wingers to realize that the world changed on 9-11? We can't just sit around like Clinton did for eight years. Bush has kept us safe for four years. If Kerry's elected we will get attacked again for sure.

There is a difference between acknowledging that the world has changed and basing our entire lives around terrorism. There are other problems in this country, problems Bush has either ignored or helped to create. The fact that he only allowed 3,000 civilians and 1,000 soldiers to die during his Presidency is not a reason to re-elect him.

I saw some of the convention and it was a despicable hate filled event. The Republican Party scares me.
