Yet, if we are going to really affect this nation's politics... it has to begin there.

If we take the attitude that it's too hard...or it's just simpler to vote third party and pat ourselves on our back for our stand...then we have resigned this nation to its demise.

There is a big difference between George W. Bush and John Kerry. There is a big difference between the Democrats and the Republicans. Big enough to affect any "conservatives" vote come this November.

Where they are equal is where the electorate demands them to be equal... on entitlements and spending. That isn't going to change until we reeducate the electorate to the harm they are doing to themselves and this nation.

You are exactly right. The people to blame for what the government does is the people who do nothing but sit around and complain.

Until enough people wake up and realize that it takes involvement instead of complaining nothing is going to change.

David Frum has a good article today in National Review.

its say basically the country is much more liberal today than in 1984. Only MN has become more Republican. the reasons are this:

The DEM part is perceived as moving right on economics

Single people are growing as a % of the population while married people are falling.

Growing immigrant population


It seems like the demographics of the country are rapidly moving against the GOP and especially conservatives.


Jeb Babbin today has a good atricle in American Spectator about why conservative should support Bush, due mostly to foreign policy.


I have warned people here before. Dont think if Kerry is elected in 2004, that he will lose in 2008. There have not been in over 100 years two failed back to back one term Presidents. If Kerry wins in 2004, we'll likely win in 2008.

That would mean at least 3 Supreme Court Appointments.


I do hope that when and if Kerry does win, those who stayed home on election day will refrain from complaining about whatever liberal activism comes from the White House
