Posted on 07/26/2004 5:36:04 AM PDT by beaureguard
What got them riled up, you say? Me. Friday. Oh boy, you should see the email. Letters to sponsors, radio stations, the Democratic National Committee all pretty much demanding the same thing ... that I be cancelled/fired/executed.
So, why all the fuss? Because I said on Friday that I honestly couldn't make up my mind which group of people was more dangerous to the future of this country: (a) Islamic jihadist terrorists; or, (b) people who intended to vote for The Poodle for president.
It seems that some of the more strident complainers were convinced that I had compared Kerry voters to Islamic terrorists. This quality of thought is pretty much what you would expect from someone who would cast a Democratic ballot, but for those of you who did manage the incredible feat of graduating from a government school .. let's put that to rest. You can die if someone fires an apple at your head at 150 miles per hour. You can also die if someone drops a Volkswagen on you. Either the apple or the VW can be dangerous, but that does not mean that apples and VWs are alike. Ergo ... saying that both Kerry voters and Islamic terrorist can be dangerous is not necessarily comparing one to the other. I know that's a bit tough for you government school grads, but if you read this paragraph a few times I'm sure you'll get the idea.
Now ... let's deal with the question of whether or not I was out of line suggesting that Kerry voters, as a group, could possibly be as or more dangerous to this country as, say, whatever remains of al Qaeda.
First question: Can voters actually be dangerous? That's a hanging curve ball. Hitler was elected in Germany. Nuff said.
So ... second question. Can Kerry voters be dangerous. Well now that would be a matter of opinion, wouldn't it? My opinion is that they very well can be, especially if there are enough of them out there to actually put Mr. Paper Cut Purple Heart into the White House with his trial lawyer pal. I consider Kerry to be dangerous to the future of our Republic, to freedom and to economic liberty. You may disagree. So be it. Consider, thought, my reasoning. Here's a brief list of the threats Kerry poses to our country, not necessarily in the order of their severity.
1. Kerry is soft on sovereignty. As Boston Herald columnist Cosmo Macero says: "Never has the dilution of U.S. Sovereignty been so boldly forecast." This is a man who said that the United States should not deploy troops overseas without the "permission" of the United Nations. He made no exceptions. He stated it as a hard and fast rule. Do we want a president who seeks the permission of the United Nations before he can act in what he believes to be the best interests of the United States? Oh .. to be sure, Kerry wouldn't dare make this statement today. He's running for office! Tell me ... just when do you think a person speaks his true mind? Hint: It's not when he's in the middle of the campaign. Remember ... Kerry has instructed Democrats to hold back on their anti-war statements during the convention. He knows that many of the voters he wants to convince approve of the liberation of Iraq. He also knows that most of the voters don't think the UN should have veto power over US military deployments. Believe him now at your peril.
2. Kerry is an appeaser. Kerry knows that many of the principal members of the European Union want to build the strength of that body on the declining weakness of America. The leaders of these countries are quite upset over George Bush's show of strength in the Middle East. They knew the threat was there, but it was a threat they didn't have the courage to face. The US did. The US is showing strength, Europe is showing weakness. Naturally this is going to breed bitterness toward our country. Kerry wants to address and moderate this bitterness by weakening America through a policy of appeasement.
3. Kerry is a tax-and-spend liberal. Just recently Microsoft announced that it was going to distribute $32 billion ... that's with a "B" ... in Microsoft cash to shareholders via a dividend. Give The Poodle his way and the dividend, which has already been taxed by the Imperial Federal Government, will be taxed again when it reaches the shareholder. How nice. Kerry's spending plans, if enacted, would essentially double the size of the federal government. Virtually every economist out there not working for the government credits Bush's tax cuts with our economic turnaround. Raising taxes is a good way to stop our economy in its tracks.
4. Kerry sends a message of weakness. Islamic terrorists are emboldened when they believe their enemies to be weak. Disagree if you wish, but there's a school of thought out there which believes that the election of John Kerry would send a signal to the wonderful world of Islamic terrorism that America is once again ripe for an attack. I attend that school. How many Americans will die when Kerry brings us the era of appeasement?
5. Kerry sends a message of government dependency. Whatever you need, the government is there to provide it for you. Kerry is pressing the concept of health care as a right. This means that the person in need of health care would have, under a Kerry regime, an enforceable right to a portion of the life of some health care provider somewhere. If health care is a right, what else? The right to a home? The right to a job?
I've said it before, but here we go again for the record. We're in the middle of World War IV. bin Laden has pledged to kill as many Americans as he can. He has even set a goal of four million. Will you be one of those? How about a member of your family? The Democrats are going to nominate a man who was opposed to removing Saddam Hussein from Kuwait. A man who voted for the Iraq war, and then voted to deny the funding our troops needed to pursue that action. The Democrats are nominating a man who believes that the United Nations should have veto power over American military moves. A man who would weaken the American economy through ratification of the Kyoto Treaty and the imposition of tax increases on the very people who are now powering our economic revival.
Kerry is dangerous. Anyone who would put him in power is dangerous. Islamic jihadists are dangerous. The question as to which group presents a greater threat to our Republic, to our freedoms and economic liberty is a valid one. I suspect that some Kerry voters are just a wee bit uncomfortable with the possible consequences of their actons.
Gotta love Boortz.
Now that I've toned things down, I am able to keep a job. However, every day the Liberal Democrats take this nation one step closer to destruction. I just have to sit back and watch it happen. It is unbearably difficult.
He is at the DNC this week. Should be an interesting show week.
Believe me now, and listen to me later ...
In the middle ages, catapaults and battering rams were fearsome, destructive weapons violently employed upon besieged castles.
More insidious were the sappers who quietly and secretly tunneled beneath the curtain walls to light the timber fires which collapsed the protective walls of the fortress.
One weapon was obvious and visible yet the stealthy unseen destruction from within was far more "effective".
[not that I'm makin' any analogies here]...;)
Pathetic. You can compare Ashcroft to the taliban, Say that GWB is controlled by his Neo-con masters, call Condi Rice a house ni@@er, refer to a conservative activist group as digital brownshirts, even denounce your own country on foriegn soil at a time of war but please whatever you do don't suggest there might be concenquences to liberal idiocy.
Neal is on fire! It will be interesting to see just how many good 'interveiws' that he gets at the dim-vention. These politicians know he'll rip 'em to shreads with logic and facts if he gets them on the air.
Its ok for the Dems to compare Bush to Hitler, but you better not call voting for Kerry dangerous. Why that's just "mean spirited".
Well written. My feelings exactly.
We need to CLONE Neil! ...think he'd sit still long enough? I think a "small" army (maybe half a million) would do. :-)
Lefties are going to lose their m-i-n-d-s when they lose in November. :-)
There it is...the truth.
Anyone who votes for Kerry is voting for the Terrorists. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to realize who Al Quaeda would like elected. They know how weak the dems are.
Bit of "liberals are morons" reading from the Boortz-meister to go with your morning cuppa-joe...
In my case it's a bit of humor to leaven out what is shaping up to be a really CRAPPY Monday.
Hitler comparison is quite apt here. It's volume not logic that matters with libs.
I have been saying that the DNC is a bigger danger to the Constitution than the terrorists could ever hope to be.
One group straps bombs around their waists.
Another group stuffs national security docs down their pants and destroys them.
Both have the same goal. Why is one group any less a threat to our country than the other?
The problem, here is that Boortz, as he so often is, is right on target. If Kerry manages to squeak into the WH in Nov., the Republic of the United States of America is truly doomed.
And, Boortz spelled it out so thoroughly, that even Democrats and government school graduates should be able to "get it".
Can't be said any better.
The RATS are the most dangerous. We are at a turning point in history. The RATS can stand up for America and the free world or they can drag America into the depths of evil with the terrorists. It's sad to admit, but our future and our children's future has come down to their choice.
Along with the Islamofascist, the fascist evil Dums would like nothing better than to have everyone of us and all free thinking people shut up. And they are foaming at the mouth thinking about using the Homeland Security Laws to do just that.
"Kerry's spending plans, if enacted, would essentially double the size of the federal government. Virtually every economist out there not working for the government credits Bush's tax cuts with our economic turnaround. Raising taxes is a good way to stop our economy in its tracks. "
Kerry voters may be more dangerous because they are in a position to hurt the country. They have no animus toward the USA and may actually believe they are doing the right thing, but it is the effect that matters.
Al Qaeda will never elect a President of the United States, so there is a limit to how much damage they can do.
As a group they're dysfunctional. Kerry's Administration would also be dysfunctional, and their decisions would be disastrous. Boortz is right, and the DNC can "shove it."
DOOMED! < /FedEx >
No. That's a bit over the top. We may be in more serious trouble with a F'n presidency, but it's just another big pile of work to be done, more mess to be cleaned up. We are Americans after all. We are cleaning up after Clinton....
I'm tellin y'all .... half this country wants to have a suicide pact with the rest of us and they plan to End It All.
Personally I'd rather just have a civil war now and get this shit straightened out the old fashioned way.
The liberal/leftist vs conservative debate is not about politics any more. It's about evil vs good. The vast middle of America are just dupes. They don't know whats going on. But the card carrying leftists, ie college professors, are criminals and need to be purged.
But the problem is not so much Kerry but the voting half of the republic who would put him in office. The Dems might win despite the fact that they've nominated the most liberal senator in congress. That means that many Americans are either too ignorant or too leftist. If things were right with this country, Kerry should never have been nominated much stand a chance of being elected. In a country where most adults realized the consequences of liberals being in office, Bush should win in the biggest landslide in history. And it's not like he hasn't had some real accomplishments in his four years. He's toppled two terrorist countries and revived the economy. Maybe those people who are arguing for two separate Americas were correct. The libs could live in the Leftist States of America while we could have the other half.
...people who intended to vote for The Poodle for president...See also, from:

"...Kerry is like some character in a Balzac novel, an adventurer twirling the end of his mustache and preying on rich women. This low-born poseur with his threadbare pseudo-Brahmin family bought a political career with one rich woman's money, dumped her, and made off with another heiress to enable him to run for president.
If Democrats want to talk about middle-class tax cuts, couldn't they nominate someone who hasn't been a poodle to rich women for the past 33 years?" - Ann Coulter

He elevated himself in my eyes when he turned O'Reilly into a spitting, blithering puddle of red-faced blather.
Your points are well made and I agree with all but your first sentence. Part of the problem (not all) IS Kerry, because Kerry is the leftist, anti-Bush hate-monger they will choose to "lead" America to its ruin. Remember, Terry McAuliffe front-loaded all of the Dem primaries to allow the chosen candidate more time to campaign against Bush. Only after he became the apparent nominee, did a lot of Dems begin to question their choice of candidate. Unfportunately, for them AND us, it's too late for their buyers remorse. We're ALL stuck with him.
I don't believe that it's over the top or even unduly pessimistic. W has devoted the majority of his first term to cleaning up after Clinton and still has a long way to go. If we put Kerry in office, I don't think Americans will have the will or the desire to pick up the pieces . . . . again! We'll be too tired and too broke to try and fix another libs mess. Reagan had to clean up after Carter, and W is having to clean up after Bubba. It's debatable whether or not Nixon actually cleaned up any of LBJ's mess.
The libs could live in the Leftist States of America while we could have the other half.
I think Boortz comments on Friday just lit the fuse. The Democrats, in case nobody noticed (grin) had a TERRRIBLE WEEK last week.
And I suspect this week is going to be worse, no matter how hard they try to "vet" the speeches scheduled.
When you represent a political party that runs from new ideas, you only have one topic available to you.
Mindless bashing of the opposition. It will work in the short run among the DNC faithful....but lets not forget, they are the clear minority within our political system.
I don't believe a Kerry presidency will doom the Republic. I despise Kerry-called his fellow soldiers baby killers in order to advance his political career. He is despicable man...no doubt. I am a Bush supporter all the way. However, we survived Carter and Clinton ( four years for Carter and two years for Clinton with an all Dem congresses in place), we can survive this turkey. In the horrifying event that flip flop is elected, we must fight his marxist policies tooth and nail as Gingrich fought Clinton in 1996. Even Bob Dole fought against Clinton-Mr. Compromise himself.
We must make sure that Kerry doesn't get to nominate super radical judges to the bench (the Demons have denied Bush's judges and set an ugly precedent which Republicans can and should follow). When the next election comes, we must deny Kerry a second term. Our Republic has withstood worse than Kerry. We will continue-no matter what. Of course, it would be a miserable, tough four years-no doubt about that. I fear Americans would die..because of terrorism. An appeaser in the White House is a green light to terrorism.
However, this country has survived war with Britain (twice) in its's infancy, a devastating civil war,Spanish American war,the Kaiser, Roosevelt (marxist-elected for three terms), the great depression, Nazism, Communism, Truman's pro-communist reign, the 60's radicals (remember the bomb planted at Macy's in New York at Christmas..)and of course 9-11. We are tough. We will survive Kerry if we must...However, I don't believe Kerry will win the election.
I think it depends.
If Kerry gets elected, I think he loses the press almost immediately. It will unify republicans, and if he is really serious about his 'soft on sovereignty' thing, he's going to lose his party.
The objective of Democrats isn't to get Kerry elected, it's to beat Bush. After that, if they want to hold power, they will likely have to throw guys like Moore off the wagon and govern to the right.
The center isn't going to cut it anymore. There will have to be another tax cut - a tax increase, no matter how it is dressed, will be out.
Kerry is also inheriting a good economy. Were it to fail in the first couple of years, R's would have both houses of Congress locked up to the nines.
Not in a million years would I vote for Kerry. If he wins, however, I don't think we are doomed.
I think he will do a Carter and lose the presidency for good, in landslide proportions for another 12 years.
As a side benefit, Hillary would be out, likely for good. Kerry would have to do Johnson and declare he wasn't running in 08.
No, there are worse things.
I think the Judiciary of the US would be in trouble. That I do believe.
Boortz and Corinne? Brown (Rep from FL) are going at it right now.
Same ole same ole about the 2000 race, and how blacks were disenfranchised in 2000.
We can and must survive. If the Democrats win;it is the will of the electorate. Sometimes voters goof as in electing Carter and Clinton. We have had many peaceful transfer of power, and I expect many more.
Republicans can and have risen to the occasion. Think about Bob Dole-hardly a junkyard do-but he did fight Clinton successfully. He rose to the circumstances and did a splendid job of opposing Hillary health care and increased taxes (not one Republican voted for Clinton's tax increases-not even a Rino).
I do not believe, we will need a civil war...in order to repair damage done by Kerry. Nope, another election or two or three will suffice. Be of good cheer; I don't think Kerry will win.
Have you considered radical Dems feel as you do about President Bush? We must accept the next President-Bush or Kerry and support him in areas we can. The demonization of political opponents into monsters needs to stop-this threatens our republic far more than one man.
