THEY JUST DON’T GET IT
By Buck Evinger
Rich liberals just don’t get it. They just don’t get what the war on terror means to you and me. They don’t understand why tax relief is important to people and the economy and they are completely bamboozled on why the war in Iraq is the right war at the right time and most definately in the right place. Consider some of the things Teresa Heinz Kerry said a democratic fundraiser in Arizona. (By the way, they raised $1 million dollars in one night. Yes, the party accusing Republicans of being the party of the rich raised $1 million dollars at a two hour dinner.)
Heinz Kerry said, with much disdain, that she could see the al-Qaida chief being caught before the November election.
“I wouldn’t be surprised if he appeared in the next month,” said Heinz Kerry, alluding to a possible capture by United States and allied forces before election day.
Isn’t that a good thing? Of course! It’s what every American wants to see. The capture and punishment of a murderous madman in retribution for our fallen brothers and sisters. For Democrats, however, the capture of bin Laden is an unwanted and unwelcome event. But since it could happen Heinz Kerry and other liberals are laying the ground work to say, ” Yes, it’s a good thing that Osama bin Laden was captured, but those evile Republicans probably had him 6 months ago….” What an unfortunate situation to be in as a presidential candidate, to hope beyond hope that the one thing Americans would like to see happen, capturing bin Laden, to hope that it doesn’t happen and, if it does, be prepared to talk it down. They just don’t get it.
ABOUT THE WAR ON TERROR IN IRAQ
Heinz Kerry also said the war in Iraq is not part of America’s anti-terrorism efforts and that the current administration chose to create a “hotbed for terrorism” in Iraq when dictator Saddam Hussein did not pose an immediate threat.
I’m not going to rehash the links between Iraq, under Hussein, and world terror organizations, including bin Laden They are proven, but any thinking person should be able to understand the importance of the war in Iraq as it relates to the war on terror. Pay attention liberals….
What was the stated goal of bin Laden before and after 9/11. To bring terrorism to the doorstep of America. Until 9/11 terrorism was something that happened in other countries, over there. Usama bin Laden, wanted to change all that. George Bush recognized that bin Laden wanted to bring the fight to us, so in a brilliant strategic move, Bush took the war to them. First in Afghanistan, then to Iraq. And look at what has happened since then.
Our enemies, the terrorists and radical supporters of terrorism, are putting all their resources and energy into Iraq. The vast majority of the “resistence” in Iraq is from people who are not even Iraqis. What Bush did by toppling Hussein was set the terms of the war on terror. He forced the terrorists to focus on Iraq, instead our homeland. The war in Iraq has helped to negate one of terrorisms most beneficial assets, surprise.
At the same time, the war in Iraq is laying the groundwork for longterm stability in the middle east. This effort has to start somewhere, does it not? Where better than in Iraq? It is an educated, progressive nation of peoples looking for a new start and a new opportunity for a better life. It is rapidly moving in a positive direction and will soon be a beacon to which the oppressed of the middle east can look and say, “I want that life for my children".
It is also impossible to overlook the direct benefit to the Iraqis people who are now rid of a mad dictator. Does anyone doubt that these muslims are sleeping better at night thanks to American intervention and sacrifice?
Liberals just don’t get it.
Heinz Kerry also told the audience of rich Democrats that she was embarrassed to receive tax cuts. I heard Paul Begala say this on CNN the other night. OKAY, GIVE IT BACK! You know, there is no law that says you have to accept your tax cut. Anybody who wants to can donate as much money to the government as they want to for any purpose. Defense spending, education, debt service…ANYTHING! I loved it when the Arkansas’ Govenor Mike Huckabee, in response to critics of state tax cuts, set up a donation account for people to send money to. People who felt like taxes should be higher and that the government needed more money now had a bank and an account number they could send legitimate donations to. IT’S STILL EMPTY!
If the self-righteous Heinz Kerry’s, Susan Sarandon’s and George Soros’ of the world would put their massive amounts of excess money where their mouth is, the working-stiff, middle classers like you and me wouldn’t have to pay higher taxes. Does Heinz Kerry, and her ilk, not realize that their hypocracy is so blatent?
They just don’t get it.
I believe that God has planted in every heart the desire to live in freedom.
George W. Bush
