An Election For The Ages

It’s November and that means cooler weather, yardwork, competitive football and elections! This years mid-term election is one of the most important of recent history and could possibly turn out to be one of the most important of not only American history but world history. I am a conservative but I do make it a rule to inform myself of the views and opinions of both sides of the political spectrum. The most important thing I can tell you about this election is, you need to go VOTE! I think everyone who pays attention to politics knows this election is critical and they can see the huge power struggle being carried out right in front of our eyes.

The Democrats think they are poised to take control of Congress back from the Republicans, the polls do to. That is all good and well for those who follow polls. The polls we listened to on election day in 2004 told us that John Kerry would be our next President. In the weeks leading up to the election this November 7th, we have seen various indicators that tell us the polls people are citing cannot be trusted. One of the major pollsters, who many base their predictions upon is John Zogby. Zogby has joined on with the new liberal radio network Nova M Radio second brainchild of Anita and Sheldon Drobny founders of the bankrupt brainchild Air America. Zogby’s vested interest in the success of this new”Air America” leads to an inescapable conflict of interest. Yet major news media outlets still quote and rely on the Zogby polls for their news stories. With this kind of reporting, it’s no wonder that the Democrats think they are a shoe-in this fall.

I want to emphasize that I am by no means discounting the Democrats in this election I am merely calling into question the polls that cite them as taking back control. I feel that the Democrats are close enough in numbers to regain some seats and if enough of the people they have registered as Democrats actually go and exercise their right, it is possible that the power could shift. I say this not because I am a liberal supporter or apologist, I say this because I think America is in the midst of an ideological civil war and a few votes either way could tip the balance. I guess one could say that we have always been at war ideologically, but it has never been quite as split or as heated as it is today or since Florida 2000. There is an outright hatred for George W. Bush coming from the left that spills over into a hatred for all of the right. I feel that the current ideological divide is so heated that at the minimum, we are going to see stronger support for third parties and at the maximum an utter collapse of the current political structure. I think the former has always been true in our society and I feel the latter is something that is welcomed by the extremist views of both sides including the current leadership of the Democratic party.

What we do at the polls next week is going to define America and what the world thinks of America. If we go to the polls next week and give the power to the passive Democrats and in turn they pull our troops out of Iraq, it will be a clear message to those who wish harm to freedom, a message that says, go ahead, have your way with us and with anyone you do not like. There are a few phrases that the world’s terrorists have been hearing and it is something they like, things like “Cut and Run” and “Iraq Timetable” have been mouthed by the left in an effort to agree with certain polls stating that a majority of Americans think going into Iraq was a mistake, remember my previous point about polls. What is most interesting, is that in most of the close congressional races across the country, Democrat candidates do not support an Iraq pullout. To me, a sign of true liberal loss of a backbone.

One of the most important things to remember when you head to exercise your right to vote, is that, historically elections have been won because of a focus on the issues. In the recent weeks leading up to this election we have seen lots of dirty politics from the left. The left loves to pull the dirty politics card when power hangs in the balance, we have seen the left do everything in their power to smear Senator candidate George Allen by labelling him a racist based on the statements of a few individuals, while completely ignoring the statements of those who seek to tell the truth of Allen’s opponent Jim Webb who gave up chasing down and scaring black folks in Watts with a gun. Webb though has given up the racist for the sexually perverted, writing novels that include little boys putting their private parts into the mouths of their fathers. In my eyes, defending this writing as fiction and not proclaiming it filth, tells me the Democrats subscribe to this and approve. It’s a startling picture to have in your mind when you go to the polls, especially if you have to use a touch screen voting machine.

To me the main issue of this election is terrorism and America’s national security. I want leaders who will stand up for America and not bow down to terrorists who want to kill me and my friends and family. The very idea that Democrats want to give terrorists a timetable for when we are going to pull our troops out of Iraq, tells me that Democrats really do not care about national security much less the United States of America.

It is because of the course we are on today that we do not have to worry about risking our lives by going to exercise our right to vote. It is because of the course we are on today that we do not have to worry about our loved ones lives being at risk when shopping for Christmas. The Democrats want to change that course and if they are given that opportunity, we won’t have to worry about who is a racist or who is a pervert, we will be much more concerned with whether or not we or our loved ones will come back from (insert your destination or pastime here) not. Remember this when you go exercise your right to vote.

Don’t ever forget how terrorists changed our lives on 9/11/2001. Don’t forget who wants America to quit.
