Christmas Liberty, American Tradition
         December 17, 2004

Liberty’s birth, a shining star in a world of oppression, is owed to those who, back then, celebrated the season of the Christ Child’s birth. Over taxation caused much discontent but not enough to rebel. Lack of representation still was not enough to sway away the loyalty to the King. It was however, the discontent of righteous indignation. If not for religious rebels then, the United States would have stayed divided without religious freedom. In the colonies, where the King’s thumb had been weak, the colonialists had learned to appreciate their freedom to worship. It was that love of religious liberty that brought together brethren of various denominations to fight against the King’s decreed religion. Where, in England, the Catholic and Protestants disliked each other and fought, the colonialist counterparts learned to co-operate. George Washington made the observation that no where else and in no other time has man lived in peace together with each worshipping as they pleased. Love of God, that gave liberty from sin, is the primary consensus that gave men the fortitude to fight until free.
Today, where the majority of Americans agree with the prior premise, we allow the vocal minority to dictate American traditions. We fail to call them on their lie that “separation of church and state” is an official term. Where is our righteous indignation now? If we stand not for our own liberty or against oppression of others, we will see our liberty wane. Religion is American tradition. Christianity is American tradition. To deny the Christian influence in America’s success does not change the fact or the proof found within our history. Christmas is an American tradition that acknowledges that God grants life and liberty.

CHRISTMAS: Kids being taught heresy        December, 2004 - reposted from letters, 2001

It's almost Christmas, the celebration of the birth of Christ. Schools will spend less time and money on Christmas than was spent on Halloween. They will avoid the American tradition of celebrating Christ in the mistaken belief that religion must be separate from government.
Separation of government from religion means that government cannot dictate how our citizens can worship or where to worship. Therefore, should the government become filled with individuals from any one particular religion they could not dictate religion on our citizens. Government must not interfere with religion. This is the wisdom of the founding fathers.
Our culture has ignored its heritage in conforming to outside influences. Influences that seek to overcome the protections afforded us by our Constitution, represented in practicing our American traditions.
Our schools are teaching American heresy to our children, that America is not the tolerant country that it has been, that Christianity and Judaism are a threat to our freedoms. In fact, it was the values of those religions that made America great.

Give them the tools                      December, 2004 - reposted from letters, 2002

[In 2002] The high-speed chases on Dec. 29 (Federal Way to Fife) and on Dec. 31 (Algona, Pacific and Auburn) may not have been successful 20 years ago. This is one example where the tools needed to do the job have been provided to our law-enforcement officers.
Then, listening to my police scanner, I remember a high-speed chase involving a motorcyclist. The cyclist drove closer to Pierce County where King County police had no jurisdiction. The dispatchers became agitated, being unable to reach their contacts with the Pierce County police. The motorcyclist continued within King County, doubling back and finally ending the chase when he dumped the bike near Highway 18.
Since then our police officers have been given commissions allowing authorization to pursue suspects into other jurisdictions. As in the Dec. 29 incident, inter-jurisdiction pursuit has proven to be a valuable enforcement tool.
These days, in being politically correct, we hog-tie our protectorates. Characteristic profiling is being restricted if the suspect's prominent characteristic is, or is representative of, his race. If an officer is a racist it will show in many other ways. Let our police do their jobs without fear that the right decision will be politically incorrect.
The chases did not require profiling other than gross traffic violations and mismatched ownership of the vehicles. The tools were there to complete the task at hand. Allow them the tools for efficient police work in every aspect of law enforcement. We must not restrict our peace officers from keeping the peace.

Levy: Super Majority                         December, 2004 - reposted from letters, 2002

The School Levy's 60 percent super-majority is necessary to equalize the representation of those who pay the tax. All registered voters can vote for the school levies, but only those who own property will have the tax levied against them. This is taxation with unbalanced representation at best.
I do not care how badly the money is needed, this is America. This is the country that fought the Revolutionary War in part over "taxation without representation." If we are to give up what created this country and that which has made it great, then let's mandate twice as much for schools and government. The liberals would be ecstatic if they did not need votes over excess taxation.
To do away with the 60 percent majority to pass a school levy is tactic of fascist style. Reduce the say of the taxpayer to increase the probability of maintaining the tax burden on only the property owners. Were the taxes to be levied upon all citizens, a simple majority would be prudent and fair. When the taxation is levied upon only some and not others with the others having a say, we have inequality.
America is the country where equality is promoted while inequality is maintained in the lack of representation of the levy payers. The 60 percent super majority helps to strengthen the voice of those who pay while still giving a voice to those with no vested monetary interest.
Maintain the super-majority or change the levy tax structure so that all who have a say, also pay.

Traffic Woes                          December, 2004 - reposted from letters, 2002

Addressing traffic problems
Look at all options when addressing traffic problems
Transit is one of the most difficult problems to solve in the Northwest. We often look at the subways and trolley systems that operate elsewhere and say that they can be the answer. Most existing subway and trolley systems were installed when construction costs were substantially lower than today. Forget inflation, today we have the added cost of all the added safety measures. We have the cost of the environmental impact statements. Then there is the fact that today we have to pay for the land that once was simply taken.
Ridership was not much of a problem in decades past as the love affair with the automobile had not yet begun. Mass transit had a greater appeal than today as we simply hop into our cars and drive anywhere our hearts desire. Speed and convenience are essential components in the success of mass transit. Building systems that must slow as they cross existing roads also slowing automobile traffic is self-defeating. It is time to consider the alternatives that would allow higher speeds without crossing existing traffic conduits.
Underground or overhead are the only common sense approach except for the consideration of cost. But since we are hell-bent on spending the money we move slowly on.
Underground is much too costly as Seattle’s bus tunnels have taught. The only approach that avoids conflicts while achieving higher speeds is the monorail proposals. We must consider all possibilities without ignoring others if we are to achieve any success in the improvement of our traffic woes.

Stealing an election                       December 1st 2004

Does Christine Gregoire deserve to be Governor? Attempting to have illegal votes counted to steal an election certainly is an eye opener. Corruption from the get-go, is this future signs of a Gregoire administration? Mistakes are made but to attempt to correct those mistakes by breaking the law shows a lack of integrity. Rossi won the election not once but twice. The second time he won the gap was drawn closer by the illegal counting of additional votes. Every vote must count but should be done so in accordance with the law. Gregoire seeks every vote, even if illegal, for to steal the election is her only chance of victory.

Environmental Issues are manipulated           November, 2004 - reposted from letters, 2002

Issue is manipulated to further restrict freedoms.
If Bush is a tool of the polluters, then the environmentalists are tools of socialism. In the guise of environmentalism, prevailing is the restriction of our freedoms. Government is slowly taking over private businesses and our lives one regulation at a time.
To blame Bush for past failed policies is just plain stupid. Give him a chance; let's see what will come of his efforts. Oh, how stupid of me; it will not matter what he does because it will be wrong. He will be criticized even for the good, for they shall distort the truth and the apathetic will follow, believing every word.
Global warming: Is it true or false? We hear much about it as the media treat it as fact. When supporting information is reported, we get only one side of the issue. There is other information that supports no global warming. We do not hear of those opposing views, facts and opinions; it is not the politically correct position to take. What about truth? What about hearing all sides of an issue?
The environmentalists get so concerned about oil spills and fail to see or purposely ignore the fact that more oil is leaked into the oceans from the bowels of Mother Earth. That oil is assimilated into the mass waters of the deep. Yes, it can be devastating to the beaches when washed up on land. That is why precautions and emergency plans are developed. Even then, if left alone, Mother Nature would correct man's mistake.
The issue of the environment is being manipulated for the purpose of further restricting our freedoms. Where liberty is suppressed, socialism is able to gain ground, ever slowly. Incrementally, our liberty wanes.

What happened to the Democrats?           November, 2004 - reposted from letters, 2002

The Democrats were once the "Party of the People." What has happened?
The Democratic Party opposed Republicans when increasing funds for the school lunch programs. They opposed Republicans over increasing the minimum wage. They oppose Republicans about getting tough on criminals to protect the people. They oppose Republicans in attempts to restrain taxation. They oppose Republican talk about requiring accountability in our government.
Democrats are in opposition to whatever the Republicans are promoting at the time, but will later take the opposed Republican issue, rework it, dumb it down, then present it as their own. After the Republican issue receives some acclaim, Democrats will distort and outright lie about it to gain the people's opposition.
The Democratic Party today exists only to obtain power and with that power to enact laws that abate our freedoms. All you need to do is look at what they support and how they propose to enforce or enact their issues. The Democratic Party -- those who run and control the party -- remind me of the Communist Party and the Cold War. The leaders enjoy the high-life while governing to keep the people oppressed.
Democratic policies, whether intentional or not, are leading America away from liberties to a new American Socialist way. Are they the ``Party of the People'' or the "Socialist Party of the People?" I'm wondering, is this the new Democrat?

Status quo or peace    November 26, 2004

   Through history, peace has only been achieved by one nation overpowering another. When the aggressor had been victorious it resulted in an oppressive peace, which is no peace at all. How could we have expected peace by allowing the status quo in Iraq?
   Saddam Hussein is a man who attacked his own people without any concern for human life. Doing nothing would have allowed a semblance of peace for a time, but would have allowed Saddam to attack what little peace existed in the Middle East.
   Now that Saddam is deposed, helping the Citizen's of Iraq establish a government of the people will help to stabilize the middle east. The Allies must stand ready to protect Iraq fron the other threats wthin the Middle East.
   Short-term peace, or a longer peace by forceful restraint of rouge nations led by madmen: the right decision is clear.

Tax Breaks                November, 2004 - reposted from letters, 2003

Tax breaks do not penalize the poor. Nor do they reward the rich. Tax breaks are a reduction to those who pay taxes. If you are poor and pay no taxes, then you do not deserve a tax break. If I pay $10 in taxes and get one back, I save 10 percent. I do not gain 10 percent. If you pay $100 and get 10 percent back, you get $10 back. That seems fair to me.
I get back 10 percent and you get back 10 percent.

When using the logic of the Democratic leadership, you benefit because you get more dollars back than I do. They do not consider that you have paid more dollars in taxes than I have paid.

You only penalize by taxing more, just as we tax the "rich" who pay most of the tax revenues. The poor are not penalized by tax breaks. They will receive the same percent of tax break as do the so-called "rich."

The top 10 percent of taxpayers pays more than 60 percent of the tax revenues. The "rich" do not pay their fair share? That is right. They pay more than their fair share. It is you and I, the so-called "poor," who do not pay our fair share. We, the lower income earners, the bulk of the population, pay less than half of the revenues.

You may say the "rich" should pay more. That would be so--if this were a communist country.

Equality, by which Party?               November, 2004 - reposted from letters, 2003

The Republican Party was the first party to actively work against slavery. Today it still is in favor of equality for all, judging each by their character. The Democrat Party caters to the selfish nature of the individual, "what can I get for myself." The Democratic leadership will push for special treatment of specific races rather than equality for the individual.
On July 6, 1854 activists against slavery met forming the first plank of the Republican Party, “to prohibit… those twin relics of barbarism: polygamy and slavery.” The Republican Party still carries the plank in principle and follow the words of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., “I have a dream that my four children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.” Affirmative Action is contrary to Dr. King’s dream, putting one race over that of another. In Affirmative Action, discrimination is perpetuated by Government policies that are dividing this nation between the skin colors of its citizens. Support the Democratic Party and you support continued separation between the races. Support the Republicans and you will support the principle that each person by the content of their character makes of themselves their status in society.

Constitution for a Moral People                November, 2004 - reposted from letters, Nov. 2003

   Just what is our Constitution about? The meaning of the U. S. Constitution is being changed.
   The Constitution was written for a religious people. It was written for a moral people. The Founding Fathers intended that it protect the people from our government, not necessarily from each other. The Constitution insures our Liberty not our Freedom. Liberty is maintained by responsible freedom.
   The Constitution is being watered down, twisted, and diverted as the river of Political Correctness flows, corrupting our society. Had the Founders known that sexual deviations would become an actual dialog of public discourse, they would have addressed the situations. They would have defined what a marriage is had they saw a need. They would have placed in effect a protection for the life of the unborn, had they known the extent of our political follies. Our Constitution was written by a people, for a people who took for granted, responsibility, respect for life, respect for others, and who had a fear of God. Responsibility would have been spelled out had they thought we would become so irresponsible.
   Today, lacking the moral fortitude the Founding Fathers had, we act as children without responsibility, without morality. The activist Judges read into the lines intent that was never intended; let alone thought of.
   The U. S. Constitution left much up to the common sense of a moral people. We are a depraved people and our liberties are waning as a result. Common Sense has ceased.

Military Women                November, 2004 - reposted from letters, 2003

   We call ourselves a civilized society. Yet, we put our women into harms way. Private Jessica Lynch should be a wake up call. We should rethink the role of women in the military.
   Call it sexist I do not care. Today’s insanity of political correctness over common sense must stop. What did we think would happen to a woman taken capture? You have an enemy who hated Americans long before the war. You have an enemy who does not respect the Geneva Convention. You have an enemy who has not the morality of Western Civilization.
   Enemy soldiers away from their families, and full of stress without any reason for restraint and we expect them to treat our women with respect. They do not respect their own women. We show the same disrespect for our daughters and wives by placing them into harms way.
   Women have served in the military for decades but in positions behind our front lines. Sure some have even been captured under those conditions but they did not serve out among the enemy. Not until we lost our civilized common sense.
   One cause or motive our men have for fervent fighting is to keep the battle on the enemy’s home front not ours where our families live. Women serving behind the front lines provide a similar sense that the men must not allow the enemy to advance.
   Women in harms way provide a distraction where a man’s innate sense to protect the “weaker sex” kicks in. Lets face it Men and women are created different in more ways than plumbing. Men without a morality will seek their own desires without respect of woman’s person. Women, even without intent, draw the man’s attention provoking his temptation.
   It is time to let common sense prevail. It is time to keep the brave women of our military behind the front lines under the protection of our men.

Peace by Might                                           November 22, 2004

   Why do America and the allies fight in Iraq? It is the only chance for peace in the Middle East. Allow people to collectively choose their destiny and they will learn the advantages of liberty. When factions that demand their own way exist peace cannot. Warring factions that will oppose the fight for liberty must be subdued.
America would have failed if the Tories had taken their arms to fight after the American Revolution. Australia would not have created a peaceful society had their founders not cooperated. Liberty in peace must have a semblance of peace to begin creating a society of peaceful liberty.
   Liberation in Iraq is more than liberation from Saddam. It is the liberation from ancient oppressive traditions that favors the advantaged over the poor. It is the liberation from oppression of factions that seek power by violent oppression.
   American anti-war protestors, though they know it not, protest against the spreading of peace throughout the world. They protest against liberating other people from oppression. They have their justifications; American solders being killed and wounded, claiming it is for oil rather than liberation. They oppose that which will achieve the very thing they espouse, “Peace.” Notice how their complaints have fallen away from claiming the Iraqi people do not want America there. It is the insurgents not the people who do not want liberty.
   If America does not help spread freedom over the world then one day she will defend her freedom on her own land. In Iraq our soldiers fight for liberty that will put a greater barrier between a free American society and oppression. Yes you may consider this to be an excuse, but it is the realistic results when victorious.
   Why Iraq? Why not Iran or others? One war sends a message and slows down the actions of other oppressive nations. Negotiation becomes a tool when there is the threat of military action. Which country will be next? The tyrannical governments are now positioning themselves not to be the next on America’s list. Syria is the most visible in positioning herself for a more favored consideration by the allies.
   American and allied soldiers fight, die, and are maimed for continued liberty. They fight for the freedom of our grandchildren and their children. They fight for liberty.

Pacifism betrays the pacifist                    November 20, 2004

Pacifism betrays the pacifist. Oppression and tyranny waits for no man. Evil advances without consideration for others and cannot be reasoned with. When tyranny exists peace cannot. Peace will either be overcome or defended by force. Peace cannot exist where it is not defended. The pacifist in his well-meaning ignorance becomes an enemy of peace. The pacifist withholds aggression as enemies of freedom advance. Can it be said any simpler, “Peace when left to its own device, dies a slow demise.” If we are to enjoy any semblance of peace we must defend her with all the might necessary to overcome all threats to the survival of peace.

Enemies Within                                        November 19, 2004

When will it end?
An American Soldier is accused of war crimes. He walks into a room where three Iraqis lay dead and another lay wounded on the floor. A Marine in fear for his and his comrades life shots the wounded insurgent. We are not told the context of the story. We are not told it is in line with the Geneva Convention.
Two days before some of our Marines entered a room to find three dead one wounded calling for help. As they approach a grenade is shown. Now more American families mourn their loss.
The media is bent on presenting this war without context to purposely defame our soldiers. By doing so they deceive many that oppose the war and degrade the honor of our service men. In doing so they aid the enemy as they sway public opinion against the truth. When will the American media stop sympathizing with the enemy to the extent they will twist the truth to make American Soldiers look bad. Perhaps the enemy is within.

Bush by County, wins hands down           November 15, 2004

Bush won mainstream America where people are less likely to ask. "What can my county do for me?"
When looking at a county by county break down I see a clearer picture. here is my take on the results.

Bush won the mainstream of America;
The suburban counties,
Rural counties,
The Farmers,
Unbroken families,
A wider spectrum of middle America.

Kerry won the metropolitan areas;
The Slums,
The failed schools,
The concentration of the homeless,
The areas of higher crime,
The concentration of single mothers,
Areas of youth crimes,
The areas of voter fraud.

Most of the demographics of who won what are self-explainatory when viewing the county by county map.
Many Kerry supporters claim that the states where Kerry won had higher IQ than the others. (Who knows where that statistic came from?) When you view the county break down we see that even in the Blue states those with higher IQ live and vote in the Bush counties while commuting to the Blue counties or attending College in the Blue Counties.

The Liberal base is concentrated where the votes are bought by tax dollars. Where more welfare benefits are used, and where more Federal dollars are spent on those who do not (grant it some cannot) do for themselves. The greater concentration of government workers live in the blue areas who vote to maintain large government. The liberal base is maintained by selfishness.

John F. Kennedy said, "And so, my fellow Americans: ask not what your country can do for you--ask what you can do for your country." His brother and the liberals have turned around the great quote to buy the votes of the selfish who think more of themselves than the greater good of America.

Healing: an undermining tactic                November 03, 2004

My, how quick the national voting status can change, This morning we expected a prolonging of the finality of who was going to be president. An hour later having reported to work I hear that Kerry was to call President Bush to concede. Bush wins the popular vote with the highest number of votes any presidential candidate has ever received.
George W Bush remains Commander in Chief of a willing military an all-volunteer army. More than half the country rejoices while many of the rest mourn over their loss. Kerry is washed up for any future attempts at the presidency. I expect to see Hillary Clinton as the Democrat Candidate in 2008. I do not expect to see Bill as V.P.
The media is talking of mending or healing of the American divide. The interpretation is that in their rhetoric they hope to guide the Republicans into compromise with the Democrats. However you cannot make amends with Democrats without abiding by their wishes. There is to be no mending because the liberal factions of the Democratic Party hate conservative values. The Democratic Party is only satified when they have control and when they do not will exert their limited influence as far as they can without compromising.
The Republicans need to stand firm on the issues without compromise to appease any Democrats. The Republicans will be demonized for standing firm, but stand firm they must. Compromise only weakens the Party’s resolve and frustrates the grassroots. To maintain the power momentum of conservatism, conservative values must be upheld.

Kerry Against Women's Health        October 27, 2004

John F. Kerry supports endangering the lives of women. Since Kerry talks both sides of most issues we have only his record to establish his stand. Kerry voted against the “Partial Birth Abortion Ban” favoring the procedure of killing a child as it is being born. Not only does this procedure kill a full term baby it unnecessarily endangers the mother’s life. A C-section is much more efficient in voiding the mother’s womb of a baby than the partial birth abortion procedure. In a partial birth abortion the baby is turned breach inside the womb and then delivered feet first until only the head remains unseen. Then scissors are stabbed into the base of the skull to provide an opening for a tube. The tube is then used for the vacuuming out of the baby’s brain.
Out of character concerning his voting record but in character for his far left positions John Kerry actually returned from the campaign trail to attend a vote in Washington. Kerry voted against the Unborn Victims bill. The Unborn Victims bill was to protect pregnant mothers and their unborn children from violent criminal acts. Kerry claims to support women rights but apparently not if they are pregnant. With Kerry when it comes to the family the leftist positions against family values take precedence.
Kerry claims to support women’s rights but only those rights that are deemed politically correct by the extreme left. Kerry opposes common sense family values in favor of a woman’s convenience to be able to terminate an unwanted pregnancy at any stage of development. Kerry’s record shows him favoring the killing of babies and opposing the woman’s safety.

Kerry's Latest Lie                                      October 27, 2004

Each election cycle the Democrats get more brazen with scare tactics and outright lies. We know that Kerry has proven his desperation to win at any cost. The cost is truth. The truth in these times is a casualty in the political war of ideologies. The ideologies of the democrats depends upon the perceived mood of the audience at that given time. The subsequent democrat responses are designed to play upon the fears without regard for truth.
John Kerry is now blaming our President for missing arms that were missing before the war. Kerry’s lie, "After being warned about the danger of major stockpiles of explosives in Iraq, this administration failed to guard those stockpiles - where nearly 380 tons of highly explosive weapons were kept." The media is following in lockstep with the nazi-like tactics of plausible deceit.
Kerry’s Campaign Advisor Joe Lockhart seized this latest opportunity as another campaign of misinformation by alleging a cover up. Lockhart tied the warnings of weapon stockpiles to weapons that were moved prior to the coalition forces entrance into Iraq. Ironically Kerry had previously denied such stockpiles existed.
The media outlets with out any attempts at impartiality or accuracy are reporting Kerry’s statements as truth without supporting facts. On Monday Morning the New York Times jumps on the allegations without waiting for the facts of the whole story. The New York Times ignores the NBC report that the stockpile was missing prior to the war. It was known one month before the invasion the stockpile was unaccounted for. Tuesday evening CBS airs a story of some minor inaccuracies on the part of both campaigns with out mention of Kerry’s latest attempt to malign the President by the flagrant twist of truth. Once reported the inaccuracies are picked up on by media throughout the country reporting them as truth while ignoring those reports showing the correct time frame.
This election cycle has become a contest between Bush’s record and Kerry’s lies.

Christians and a Third Party                    October 15, 2004

Misguided Values?

   Many Christians are abandoning the Republican Party as to avoid a compromise of their values. The Constitution Party is promising a righteous alternative. The premise for each is flawed by confusion of what compromise is. One compromises their values when they make statements that contradict the values to which they subscribe. One compromises when they rationalize to act in a manner inconsistent with their values.
   In our society we interact with others that do not hold the same values. Are we compromising when we deal with them? Did Jesus compromise by eating with sinners?
   Cooperate do not compromise. Strategize do not compromise. Christians banding together to further the righteousness of America is strategy. Christian factions in cooperation with other groups to increase political power is cooperation not necessarily compromise. When cooperating do not compromise your values, in such you become a witness to those with whom you strategize.
In politics we must act as witnesses of God’s Holy Word. We must remain righteous when interacting with others who are not. Strategy in politics is necessary if we are to advance our agendas. Christians without coalitions with others do not have the power to affect change within our political system.
The Constitution Party standing alone hides its votes (talents) under a rock, or perhaps worse by handing them over to thieves. A vote for a candidate that has no chance is a vote that is not cast against the worse of the two evils. Some disagree but assuming the Republican Party is more righteous then the Democrat Party a no vote or a vote for a third party is a vote that is not cast against the Democrat Party. The real contest is between the candidates that have a realistic chance to win. A vote not cast for the Republican is a vote that does not cancel a vote for the Democrat. By default votes not cast or cast for a third party effectively advance the chances of the Democrat Party. So in the attempt to not compromise you do so by default.

Church prominence                                October 25, 2004

In a Church there is no prominent position except that prominence is where the Word of God is delivered. Prominence is where the worship originates, in our hearts. Perhaps some denominations put undue respect upon items and where they are located but prominence belongs only to God, the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.

WMDs do not ... not exist                    October 24, 2004

Weapons of Mass Destruction have not been proven to not exist. We know Saddam has had them. The U.S. gave him some that he has used on his own people. It is a given that Saddam had WMDs. Did Saddam destroy the weapons? Did Saddam ship them out of the country? Did he give them to terrorists? We do not know. The U.N. inspectors did not find WMDs. The U.N. inspectors were not allowed to inspect without notice. The evidence could simply have been moved prior to the inspections. President Clinton, President Bush, Senator Kerry, Senator Kennedy and others all said Iraq had WMDs. Perhaps they were all wrong, we do not have the evidence to support that premise. Did they all lie? If so then those who say President Bush is a liar are also liars. There have been conventional weapon stockpiles found buried in the desert of Iraq. What else is still buried? WMDs? We do not know and there is no evidence to the contrary. What we do know without doubt is that Saddam had chemical WMDs and has used them. Saddam did have programs to develop nuclear weapons. What happened to them? Where is the evidence of their destruction? What has happened to them or where are they? We do not know for we do not have the evidence that WMDs or their development do not exist.

The President is Wrong?                October 12, 2004

The president lied not producing results for his justification. Seventy-seven billion dollars spent on war is a lot of money. What business of America is it to affect regime change? Then there’s the awarding of the Halliburton no-bid contracts.
By their arguments Democrats should have disapproved of President Clinton spending Seventy-seven billion dollars in Serbia for regime change and then failing to find the mass graves. Serbia did not support terrorist that would attack America. Serbia had not been shooting at American jets for nine years. Clinton’s Halliburton no-bid contracts in Yugoslavia went unchallenged by the Democrats. Yet the Democrats and John Kerry claim President Bush is wrong for the same reasons that they supported the Iraq War just two years ago.
Republicans define the Democrat issues by doing what is right. Democrats seeking to define themselves will take the opposite side even if they have previously voiced support for the Republican issue. We should not be surprised by Kerry’s flip-flops as they mirror that of the Democrat Party. Democrat leadership is consistent in their inconsistency. The Democrat Party’s consistency is the opposition of Republican policies. Kerry’s Democrats now find themselves opposing the safety of America.

Primary I-872                             October 12, 2004

   Initiative 872 is unconstitutional. I-872 denies the right of association. It is that right that caused the court to declare the old primary unconstitutional. This is one issue that both parties agree. Washington State is unique in that we do not declare party for the actual electing of our elected positions. Initiative 872 promises to spend more of our money in the courts only to, probably, have it thrown out as unconstitutional. We have the right to associate; to choose the candidate that aligns with our political philosophy without interference by those with a contrary philosophy.
   Initiative 872 restricts our voting rights. I-872 takes away the right, in the general election, to select a candidate from all parties. I-872 will give you only two candidates to choose from in the actual election of the office holder. I-872, although well intentioned, does not do what was intended. The primary is not the election and as such cannot be treated the same. I-872 in allowing you to interfere with other parties will restrict your selection in the General Election. I-872 is not the American Way. Keep our rights, keep our selections and save the General Election. Vote NO on I-872.

Kerry and the United Nations.  
                October 04, 2004

The United Nations is an ineffective and corrupt organization. The U.N. is an organization that serves to the naiveté that peace can be achieved by peaceful negotiations. The U.N. is the cover allowing evil nations legitimacy in a civilized society. All this and John Kerry has more confidence in the United Nations than he has in America.
America is the strength behind what little strength the United Nation’s has. United Nations in failing to enforce its own resolutions proves its own ineffectiveness.
John Kerry would have our Armed Forces serve under the “socialist emblem” of the United Nations flag rather than under the sovereignty of the United States of America. John Kerry during the Vietnam War aided the enemy with anti-American rhetoric. John Kerry wishes to extend his anti-Americanism to the Whitehouse. I do not need to say John Kerry is anti-American, John Kerry’s words say it best. John Kerry in 1970, “I’m an internationalist. I’d like to see our troops dispersed through the world only at the directive of the United Nations.” John Kerry’s most recent statements still support that premise. America will fall only when weakened from within.

Is Kerry Campaigning?                         September 19, 2004

Just when we think a president could not be any worse than Clinton here comes the candidate Kerry.
Kerry is ignoring his campaign advisors or has no advice to consider. The more he speaks the more a lacking of character is revealed. The more Bush-haters dig into Bush’s background the more we see of Bush’s strength of character. Kerry is Kerry’s weakness. Bush is Bush’s strength. The Parties are more polarized in quality of candidates as well as substantial issues, today than ever.
The Democrats and their candidate lack any issue of any real consequence. Kerry speaks of handling the Iraq war better, without speaking of how he would do it. He speaks of getting the alignment of most of the allies, which Bush did. Bush has proven himself a Commander In Chief.. Bush has a proven ability to make the tough decisions. Bush does not waiver in the winds of unfounded criticism. Bush stands firm in his principles. Kerry on the other hand. . . Need I say?
Kerry speaks from his mouth the opposite of his years of actions and votes. What are we to believe? Now in the 2004 presidential campaign He says this or that then contradicts himself. Again, what are we to believe? He speaks of improving Health Care but how is he going to improve health care?
Why vote for Kerry? Kerry does not provide any substantial reasons. Is Kerry campaigning or just using the opportunity to boost his own ego?
- Roger W Hancock


Character Revealed                              September 17, 2004

   The Democrats lacking any real substantial issues or candidate have taken the low road again. Name-calling, false accusations, and calling good bad have become their mantras. They call Bush Stupid without substantiating it. The evidence is quite the opposite. They use fabricated documents to smear Bush and now we see that Bush while in the National Guard had volunteered for a mission that would have taken him into Vietnam. Bush’s humility had him keeping those details to himself. The more they try to smear Bush the more we learn of Bush’s outstanding character. They would be better off to just lay off.
   The more Kerry spotlights his military service the more we learn of his dishonoring his service afterwards. Dishonoring his service by protesting Vietnam, slanderous testimony against his fellow veterans, and now his association with a near-terrorist organization, Vietnam Veterans Against the War. VVAW, was the organization that held a meeting to vote on killing U.S. Senators. Although Kerry spoke against it he was a member of the VVAW steering committee at that time in November, 1971. Kerry denied it, and then when presented with eyewitness accounts and documentation, said he doesn’t remember the meeting.
   We keep learning more and more about Kerry’s post war activities. I learned that Kerry had testified in congress recommending compliance with the Vietnam Communist’s demands and stipulations for a U. S. retreat.

Letter to a Liberal                                 September 14, 2004

Letter to a Liberal Re: WMD's
Mr., Mstr., Mrs., Miss, or Ms. Liberal,
   WMD's were not the "Reason for going to war." It was just an added justification. You should know that by now. Besides it was the intelligence that was obtained by the great liar of all times, Bill Clinton that was flawed (if flawed, there is still no proof there was not any WMD's) and passed on to George W Bush. If George lied he was in cahoots with the Clinton gang. Below is what they the Democrats were saying. Keep on blaming Bush for Clinton's "folly." You have yourself believing it already. If Bush lied then he was set up by the Clinton Administration and they should then be tried for treason. But of course, we know the truth. Your people also voted to authorize the war, not because Bush said there was WMD's but because they believed it long before Bush.
   "One way or the other, we are determined to deny Iraq the capacity to develop weapons of mass destruction and the missiles to deliver them. That is our bottom line." - President Clinton, Feb. 4, 1998
   "If Saddam rejects peace and we have to use force, our purpose is clear. We want to seriously diminish the threat posed by Iraq's weapons of mass destruction program." - President Clinton, Feb. 17, 1998
   "We know that he has stored secret supplies of biological and chemical weapons throughout his country." - Al Gore, Sept. 23, 2002
   "Iraq's search for weapons of mass destruction has proven impossible to deter and we should assume that it will continue for as long as Saddam is in power." - Al Gore, Sept. 23, 2002
   "I will be voting to give the President of the United States the authority to use force-- if necessary-- to disarm Saddam Hussein because I believe that a deadly arsenal of weapons of mass destruction in his hands is a real and grave threat to our security." -
Sen. John F. Kerry (D, MA), Oct. 9,2002
   "Without question, we need to disarm Saddam Hussein. He is a brutal, murderous dictator, leading an oppressive regime ..... He presents a particularly grievous threat because he is so consistently prone to miscalculation ... And now he is miscalculating America's response to his continued deceit and his consistent grasp for weapons of mass destruction .. So the threat of Saddam Hussein with weapons of mass destruction is real" - Sen. John F. Kerry (D, MA), Jan. 23. 2003
   "[W]e urge you, after consulting with Congress, and consistent with the US Constitution and laws, to take necessary actions (including, if appropriate, air and missile strikes on suspect Iraqi sites) to respond effectively to the threat posed by Iraq's refusal to end its weapons of mass destruction programs." - Letter to President Clinton, signed by Sens. Carl Levin (D-MI), Tom Daschle (D-SD), John Kerry (D - MA), and others Oct. 9,1998
   "We have known for many years that Saddam Hussein is seeking and developing weapons of mass destruction." - Sen. Ted Kennedy (D, MA), Sept. 27, 2002
   Iraq is a long way from [here], but what happens there matters a great deal here. For the risks that the leaders of a rogue state will use nuclear, chemical or biological weapons against us or our allies is the greatest security threat we face." - Madeline Albright, Feb 18, 1998
   "He will use those weapons of mass destruction again, as he has ten time since 1983." - Sandy Berger, Clinton National Security Adviser, Feb 18,1998
   "Saddam Hussein has been engaged in the development of weapons of mass destruction technology which is a threat to countries in the region and he has made a mockery of the weapons inspection process." - Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D, CA), Dec. 16, 1998
   "Hussein has chosen to spend his money on building weapons of mass destruction and palaces for his cronies." > - Madeline Albright, Clinton Secretary of State, Nov. 10, 1999
   "There is no doubt that ... Saddam Hussein has invigorated his weapons programs. Reports indicate that biological, chemical and nuclear programs continue apace and may be back to pre-Gulf War status. In addition, Saddam continues to redefine delivery systems and is doubtless using the cover of a licit missile program to develop longer-range missiles that will threaten the United States and our allies." - Letter to President Bush, Signed by Sen. Bob Graham (D, FL,) and others, December 5, 2001
   "We begin with the common belief that Saddam Hussein is a tyrant and threat to the peace and stability of the region. He has ignored the mandated of the United Nations and is building weapons of mass destruction and the means of delivering them." - Sen. Carl Levin (D, MI), Sept. 19, 2002
   "The last UN weapons inspectors left Iraq in October of 1998. We are confident that Saddam Hussein retains some stockpiles of chemical and biological weapons, and that he has since embarked on a crash course to build up his chemical and biological warfare capabilities. Intelligence reports indicate that he is seeking nuclear weapons..." - Sen. Robert Byrd (D, WV), Oct. 3, 2002
   "There is unmistakable evidence that Saddam Hussein is working aggressively to develop nuclear weapons and will likely have nuclear weapons within the next five years .. We also should remember we have always underestimated the progress Saddam has made in development of weapons of mass destruction."- Sen. Jay Rockefeller (D, WV), Oct 10, 2002
   "He has systematically violated, over the course of the past 11 years, every significant UN resolution that has demanded that he disarm and destroy his chemical and biological weapons, and any nuclear capacity. This he has refused to do" - Rep. Henry Waxman (D, CA), Oct. 10, 2002
   "In the four years since the inspectors left, intelligence reports show that Saddam Hussein has worked to rebuild his chemical and biological weapons stock, his missile delivery capability, and his nuclear program. He has also given aid, comfort, and sanctuary to terrorists, including Al Qaeda members.. It is clear, however, that if left unchecked, Saddam Hussein will continue to increase his capacity to wage biological and chemical warfare, and will keep trying to develop nuclear weapons." - Sen. Hillary Clinton (D, NY), Oct 10, 2002
   "We are in possession of what I think to be compelling evidence that Saddam Hussein has, and has had for a number of years, a developing capacity for the production and storage of weapons of mass destruction." - Sen. Bob Graham (D, FL), Dec. 8, 2002
   Just because Bill Clinton and John Kerry are liars does not mean everyone lies. Although we have come to expect it from the Democrat leaders and Democrat office holders.
   Yeah the truth hurts . . . all of us.

Religion of Darwinism                  September 14, 2004

BULLY on the intelligent design proponents and BULL over the Darwinist who are so insecure in their theories that they fear the presentation of alternative thought.
The Darwinist line of thinking falls into the same mentality as when the science community believed the earth was flat. Galileo suggesting that the earth was not flat was scorned by his peers. It was considered heresy when Galileo presented the concept that the earth was not the center of the universe.
The Darwinist hold to their theories as a religion castigating any who dare suggest their God of natural evolution may be false. They essentially hold to the same thought that man is central in the cosmos of life. Their theory is that man evolved without help from any intelligent force. This thought is essential in their religion of atheism. The theory of intelligent design requires a supreme being that set the principles of life in motion. Even though with only conjecture, without any facts to disprove a greater intelligence, they hold with blind faith to unproven theory.
Time will tell, it always does. Galileo was right the world is round and is not the center of the universe. There are still those who hold to the thought that the world is flat. They disbelieve the facts as attempts fabricated, to corrupt traditional thought. Likewise the Darwinists hold to “beliefs” supported only by threads of evidence tied to their theories by their imaginations. The evidences are not enough to support the theories of natural evolution against the concept of intelligent design. To maintain their credibility they must not be challenged. To challenge is to expose. A conclusion without consideration of all available facts and presented theories is certainly not science.

God is Supreme regardless of Flag flown.                     September 12, 2004

God is God and stands Supreme. I find no banner designed by God in the scriptures other than Love. Certainly Love when from God flies higher than any allegiances to any country. America is blessed of God. A religious flag has not the meaning in religion as a nation's flag has to its identity.
The religious banners used in the navy are designed for a specific purpose and are not official flags of any religion. The purpose of a religious flag is a reminder. Man's attempt to show no disrespect to God by not having only the American Flag standing during a service.
When the American Flag stands alone in a religious service it does not hold pre-eminence over God. Christ hangs high over the earth providing salvation for all who accept. God is over all regardless of any idols we set before him. Beware the American Flag not become an idol. The American Flag hangs high upon poles constructed by man, therefore hangs lower then the heavens.
The American Flag in a religious service serves to remind of the blessings God has ordained by the creation of these United States. The American Flag represents our freedoms including the freedom to worship without interference by the government. We are able to assemble without permits and without scrutiny by our government. The presence of the American Flag is a reminder that we as religious people have a responsibility to vote and defend the religious freedoms we enjoy today.
I uphold the American Flag but God's banner of Love upholds me.

Let the ban die! die! die!                        September 12, 2004

The assault rifle ban was controversial in the first place. In 1993 when enacted it nearly failed, One vote that was changed from being against to being for allowed its passing.
Crimes decreased in part due to stiffer penalties that have been implemented across the nation. The ban was an incremental attempt to ban all arms from the public.
Remember the following adage? "When guns are outlawed only outlaws will have guns." That also applied to Germany, when guns were outlawed. The Nazi government became the outlaws. What would have happened if the public in Germany at that time still had arms to defend themselves? How many lives would have been saved if the Jewish population had weapons to arm a defensive underground?
The second amendment is for a reason. Civilization helps keep that reason in check. Without the means to defend liberty, civilization will crumble

The New Primary                     September, 2005

Those who are upset about the primary election do not understand. Their right to vote for whichever candidate in whichever party has not been impeded. It is in the general election where that occurs. In the primary, the partisan races are the parties’ selection of the candidate that will run in the general election.
You are a Republican, a Democrat, a Libertarian, an independent or whatever party, but you are not both a Republican and a Democrat or whatever.
If you wish to help a party select their candidate, then you should help that particular party. Democrats should not be participating in the selection of the Green Party’s candidate. If you are an independent, then you declare yourself not a part of a party and do not have the right to help select a candidate other than those who have declared themselves as independent.
Basically, when considering the partisan races in the primary, we are not considering an open election. The open election is when the actual officeholder is selected. The partisan races in the primary does not do that.
If you consider yourself a member of a party, then participate in that party’s candidate selection process by choosing the ballot for that party. If you are an independent, then at the primary cast your vote among the independent candidates, if any. All voters –– party members and independents –– are able to narrow the field for all of the non-partisan races.

Partial Birth Abor....                               August 26, 2004

To abort a child while it is being born? What nonsense, where is the common sense? How is it that such a heinous act is actually given credence in public discourse? If our founding fathers knew our country would have come so far as to be actually be killing babies they would have addressed the issue. But the founding fathers had morals and believed morality would stand with common sense. They never imagined how far from common sense, how far from morality we would have come.
For the life of the mother is just an excuse. For to take the extra time to turn the baby around inside then womb then punch scissors into its skull and vacuum the brains out would endanger the mother much more than simply delivering the baby alive. The same goes for almost all other abortion procedures.
Surely, if the founders of liberty were able to observe us today they would be restless with disbelief.

McCain is wrong                                    August 23, 2004

     John McCain has it wrong about the Swift Veteran ads.  When backed by accurate accounts it is fully proper to bring out information to the public. Bush would not have put out such an ad because he would not have had the nerve.  The Swift Veteran group has been putting out this information for the last thirty years without being challenged by conflicting facts of any kind.
     If inaccurate, Kerry could put a squash on the whole thing by releasing his military and medical records.   Kerry refuses to defend himself, why? Kerry made a grave mistake by using his military record as a campaign issue then refuses to backup his own statements.  He now keeps quiet hoping desperately to intimidate stations into not airing the ads.
     Perhaps he could pull a Clinton, and redefine what honorable military service . . . is.  Sure John Kerry performed some honorable military service but it appears some is not.  Even John Kerry has not defended himself against the Swift-boat Veteran's ad.

Kerry, communist sympathizer?            August 23, 2004

     Bill Clinton had communist friends from his rouge scholar days. John Kerry has contacts with Vietnam communists.  Why does the Democrat Party have such connections with communists?
     John Kerry’s position on China opposes America’s long time policy of supporting the government of Taiwan.  The Taiwan government was the last to govern a free China; now exiled to Taiwan.  Kerry has been endorsed by China’s “People’s Daily,” the largest communist newspaper.  Kerry proposes a no restriction contact with China, one of two nations to officially threaten America with nuclear war.   Clinton gave away industrial secrets in exchange for campaign contributions.  For what reason is Kerry cozying up to Red China?
     The Communist Party U.S.A. supports John Kerry for his socialist positions.  Kerry promises further socialization of heath care and other issues.  Kerry’s proposals for social programs will out cost the taxes he intends to increase; a promise to increase the deficit by one trillion dollars.  Bankrupt America and democracy becomes frail allowing an opportunity for socialist or communists to gain power.  The Democrat Party is not the party of 30 or 40 years ago.  It is the party that seeks to socialize our society into a Government that controls our lives.  Claiming patriotism they oppose the policies as set forth by our founding fathers by way of our U.S. Constitution.  John Kerry may not be immediately as bad for America as I paint, but he will facilitate our slow warming of the waters to suppress our liberties.  It is very possible he may not even know it himself.

Shortsighted issues.                               August 10, 2004

If approved the new Democratic Platform will be the proof that the Party has been taken over by the fringe left that once were laughed at not given any credence.  Seeking power at whatever cost within the Democrat Party has allowed a voice to the nonsense.  The Democrats are now stating their support for the off-the-wall issues of the past.  Tradition means nothing to those that seek to advance their own agenda without regard for consequences.  They take upon themselves to redefine “Family”.  The liberal left of the Democrat Party decides what life is only to advance their convenience to abort the inconvenience of a baby without considering the consequences.  Seeking the normalization of deviant sexual behavior is now spelled out even more boldly in the proposed Democratic Platform.  
     The extreme left so boldly espousing individual rights without consequences to the rights of others has come to ignore the consequences to them selves.   Abortion under the guise of a woman’s rights ignores the rights of the baby even to the allowing of killing a newborn baby as the new life enters into this world.  They fail to consider the consequences of future generations.  Abortions are more likely to be committed by liberals, thus aborting more future liberals than future conservatives.  Homosexuals do not procreate without a laboratory threesome.  Abortionists kill off their offspring.  By attrition liberalism is doomed to eventually fail.  Those with issues founded in selfishness generally fail to see beyond the day of their own circumstances.

Dems Without Substance                 July 15, 2004

     The Democrats are wrapped up in self-pity over the loss of the 2000 election.   They are upset that Clinton got such a bad rap (over instances he brought upon himself).  They oppose Bush not out of any real substance but just because he is a Republican with more substance than any of their presidential candidates over the last two or three elections.  
Lets compare some of their complaints.  What about the Halliburton no-bid contract awarded by Clinton in Yugoslavia?  They seem to admire Saddam opposing Bush’s imposition of regime change in Iraq. How about Clinton’s regime change in Serbia?  They oppose Bush’s liberation of 25 million Iraqis from a genocidal dictator yet had heralded Clinton for bombing Christian Serbs on behalf of Muslim Albanian terrorists.  Clinton’s refusal to take custody of the terrorist Bin Laden was a good thing while they blame Bush for the attacks on the World Trade Centers.   Under Clinton terrorist are trained in Afghanistan, that is okay but they blame Bush for destroying those same terrorist training camps.  The list of comparable comparisons goes on and on.
     There is a pattern that has emerged and it is showing the Democrat Party to be a party without substance whose only premise is to oppose Republicans at the cost of their own credibility.   The Democrats oppose to oppose knowing that many will believe their spin as they twist truth to deceive the citizens of America.   I am beginning to wonder, are they really anti-American?

Washington State Primary
               June 30, 2004

Those who do not like having to declare their party affiliation in a primary election do not understand the primary.
     A primary is to narrow the field of candidates to a few that represent the various political parties.  It is for the parties to decide who their candidates will be for the actual election (General Election).  
     Grant it one can and maybe should argue that the primary selection process should not be a public election at public expense.  I believe it probable that the primary began as a means to fund the process from the government coffers.
     Each Party should be able to certify that candidates follow the tenets of that party.
     Some say do away with parties.  It would not happen for coalitions would form to build power and effectively act as the party system does now.  Conservatives would draw together and Liberals would draw together with the others becoming the ineffectual third parties.  Thus no parties are still parties.
     It is the Freedom we enjoy that caters to a two party system.  We do not tolerate parties that hold power by weapons as sects of the third world nations do.  Those who wish to change our foundations band together for change and those who wish to embrace and maintain America’s foundations band together.  Thus America’s greatness facilitates the two party system that we know today.
     Come September participate to select the candidate of your party then vote for the best candidate in November.       - Roger W Hancock


World Peace                                        June 5, 2004

     Many genius' expertise is tunneled leaving them lacking in other disciplines.  Albert Einstein stated,  “Peace cannot be kept by force; it can only be achieved by understanding.”  I believe him to be right while at the same time wrong.  Peace kept by force is no peace but peace without force is fragile.  Peace can only be achieved by understanding when all parties understand.  An evil aggressor understands only to conquer and achieves his peace by advancing an offence against the peace of others.  France during World War II obtained peace by succumbing to the demands of Nazi Germany.  The peace France received was short-lived, as occupation of the country became oppression of the French people. We could have not retaliated against Japan for the attacks on Pearl Harbor and we would have had peace.  Peace instead of World War II could have been, but then we would all be speaking German or Japanese.  Peace with freedom can only be maintained by a free people being willing to use force against threats to the peace.  Pacifism does not protect against those who would threaten world peace.

Electoral College                              June 2, 2004

     Some say the Electoral College is not fair.  The founding fathers devised the Electoral College to make fairer the power of the individual states.  We are a nation of many states, or rather a nation of many nations united.  If America were simply one Nation not consisting of individual sovereign states then the Electoral College would not make much sense.  
Our Congress consisting of the Senate and the House of Representatives also were devised to give a greater weight to the smaller states.  The population of each state determines the number of Representatives, giving more power to the larger states.  The Senate membership is two for each state giving equal power to each, regardless of size.
  The Electoral College consists of two votes for each Congressional District plus two for each state, the same formula as for the Congress.
Each State determines how the Electoral College divides the Electoral votes between the candidates. Most states provide for a “winner take all,” giving all the electoral votes to the candidate that wins the state.  Other states will allow a dividing of the electoral votes.  In those states each District’s electorates are won by the votes cast within the district.  The two statewide electorates are decided by the votes for the candidates that carries the state.  The States in their sovereignty allow how the electoral votes are divided or not.
The individual parties prior to an election decide the individuals who cast the electoral votes.  It is necessary for the parties to have ready those chosen should their candidate win the electoral votes.  When a Presidential Candidate wins the electoral vote the individuals selected cast their vote at the capital of their state.

With the diminished power of the states it may well be time for a change, however, the Electoral College is the system we currently use to select our president.  Like it or not that is what we have.  The individual vote together has the power within the state to carry that state. But it is the individual states with a compromised power base that elects our President.

Liberty not freedom                            May  15, 2004

   We are a free country but not a "free-for-all" country.  All freedom for all people is impossible. When I insist upon total freedom to exert whatever I consider my rights, that freedom will become oppression to others.  When my rights infringe upon your rights injustice occurs.  Liberty is not a free-for-all.  Liberty is not unfettered freedom. "Liberty is maintained by responsible freedom."  We are at liberty to "responsibly" exercise our freedoms.
     That is what is wrong with our society, our selfish society.   Everyone wants their own rights to exercise without consideration of others or the good of society.  In the name of equality and fairness we allow excesses that are detrimental to our society.  "My rights without responsibility" is the modern cry of every special interest group that seeks to exert their agenda past the United States Constitution.
     As we bend our Constitution to include that, which was never intended, we jeopardize the freedoms long ago established.  That which has made this Country great is being tossed aside to tickle our individual fancies.  We will bankrupt this nation morally and financially if we continue traveling the destructive road of unfettered freedoms.

   John (Flip Flop) Kerry                    May  08, 2004

       John Kerry has not been open with his Military records nor even cared enough to comment on the purple hearts received after submitting for them, himself.  It is alleged the “wounds” Kerry received were no more than simple scratches from the course of simply carrying out normal non-combative duties.  He does not comment.  Is his lack of comment an admission of guilt?
     George Bush has opened his medical and military records.  By the way, George Bush has never been AWOL as those who oppose him continuously state.
     John Kerry jumps to whichever side, pro-war, anti-war, that is politically expedient at the time.  He blatantly lies about his previous positions.  His actions show his waffling between wooing veterans and the anti-war movement.
     John Kerry protested against not only the Vietnam War but the soldiers who fought.  He states otherwise for the more current political expedience. 

     John Kerry has not commented on his drug use, not even a denial.  And now John Kerry expects that Rumsfeld resign or be fired for actions unknown to him.   We should then hold Kerry responsible for the greater atrocities he has admitted to when he was in Vietnam .  I expect, he would now change his story as he usually does.

   Vote for a Gutless America               May 08, 2004

If you want a gutless army then Kerry qualifies to be Commander in Chief.   If you believe in strength against terrorism or acts of war against the U.S. then Kerry is not who you wish to be in command of the army that leads to protect the free world.  Kerry can spin his short term in the military any way he wishes but the fact remains he then chose to be a war protestor.  He did not care if his activities helped the Vietnam War enemies of North Vietnam.  Jane Fonda’s youthful indiscretions were more publicized but Kerry’s were just as despicable.  If you wish for an America that will not stand to enforce peace then you want Kerry.   Calling out Saddam will slow the actions of other tyrants of other countries.  Pressure by the free nations will have clout when dealing with those nations that care not for human rights.  If an America that will sit back and allow terrorist to reign is what you want then you want Kerry.  John Kerry for a Gutless America.

The Passion                                    April, 2004

The Messiah Truth Project Inc. is proving them to be an off-the-wall fringe Jewish cult.  Calling on an investigation of the movie "Passion of the Christ" is just plain nonsense.  Pick any other movie that portrays the crucifixion of Christ and there may be a shred to their point.  Why have they ignored all the previous movies only to now make their silly allegations?  I say it is because; this movie was produced with Passion by a movie great, Mel Gibson.  It is also because it has become fashionable to attack Christianity while claiming the attack to be sensitivity for other more fashionable religions.  If Mel Gibson's movie is responsible for increase in anti-Semitism then we must hold Hollywood responsible for all the movies that depict Police being murdered and portrayed as the bad guys. Burt Reynolds . . . your next!  The Music that promotes Cop Killing needs to be prosecuted; the evidence is already in.   Movie portrayals of serial killers should be responsible for the copycats that follow.   The Messiah Truth Project Inc. is attacking "Passion of the Christ" out of their own bigotry.  Look at the news and you see much more anti-Christian sentiment brought about by the movie than any other.  A recent poll indicates that the number of anti-Semitic incidences are down as a result of the "Passion of the Christ".  What is there for Attorney General John Ashcroft to investigate?  Perhaps the lies of the anti-Christian bigotry of the Messiah Truth Project Inc.

Anti-Christian bigotry        

Some larger chain stores are succumbing to the anti-Christian sentiment of political correctness.  I've noticed the decline of Nativity sets and other decorative items avoiding the meaning of Christmas.  At Top Food and Drugs you can find 'Holiday wrap' and at Fred Meyers you can find 'gift wrap ', but you do not find 'Christmas wrap'.  The designs of the wrapping paper are of the pagan and secular aspects that have commercialized Christmas over the last few decades.  It is difficult to find designs that actually depict the true themes of the origin and true meaning of Christmas.
     Our schools remove Christ while promoting other religions.  Our government is forced to deny traditions that have existed since before America was born.  Minority groups seek to deny the display of the Christ child. They win by the majority's failure to speak out in favor of our American heritage.
     Commercialization was the common complaint but now it is that the true meaning of Christmas is being ignored by the offerings of Christmas merchandise.  Over eighty percent of Americans, of all walks of life and religions favor keeping Christ in Christmas.  Some say to mention the real  meaning of Christmas is to avoid offending other religions. Nonsense, Christianity has contributed to the civilization and greatness of America. Christmas is 'Christ's mass'.  To remove Christ from the Christmas season offends American tradition. Denying American tradition offends the majority of Americans.
