…and why I think you should too. I know not everyone (even some of my friends) support Bush, but I was struck by what Senator Sam Brownback said during the debate on Tuesday night. When the topic of the war in Iraq and a timeline for troop withdrawal came up, he said this:
“We will win if we can pull together–and we can win the war. It’s difficult for a democracy, particularly in the United States, for us to win with one party for the war and one party against the war.”
Simply stated, Sen. Brownback is saying that we must all band together against the common enemy and put our energy into defeating terrorism. Whether you like President Bush or even agree with how he’s handled things is not the issue. The issue is American lives and the future generations of America. We must all come together, stand behind President Bush, and support his efforts to keep America safe. He is doing the best he can. What would you do in his position? Exactly.
Do you want your children to grow up in safety or in fear of a terrorist attack? It’s more real than you want to believe. As Senator McCain said:
“If we fail in Iraq we will see Iraq become a center for Al Qaeda, chaos, genocide in the region and they will follow us home.”
Don’t believe him? What happened in Korea after we didn’t completely purge the Communists? Oh that’s right, they came back, took over North Korea, set up their government, and are now a threat to us! Yeah, it could and will happen again if we do not take care of this now.
Your children and grandchildren will be the ones suffering for your mistakes. Think of that before you vote in 2008.
So instead of bashing the President, why don’t you just try backing him for a change. As former President Lincoln once said, “A house divided cannot stand.” It is in America’s best interest that we stand behind our President and stand against our enemy.
