We have seen election after election in which candidates have won by fanning the anxieties of voters. Elect me, or something terrible will happen to you!

That is now the Clinton mantra, which is a measure of how grim our politics have become.

How a Democrat liberal could write this and not flush with embarrassment is astonishing. Having convinced everyone that they are a victim of someone or something else, and having flushed personal responsibility down the collective memory hole, lib Dems certainly cannot think this is not the way their politics have been since Carter?

I saw a soldier this week at BAMC (Brook Army Medical Center) in San Antonio. He was in the canteen eating lunch. He was horrible burned and lost both his legs below his knees. Amazingly he was cheerful and smiling.

At first I had felt great compassion for this man. Then a thought occurred. I wondered if the terrorist that did this to him was inspired to fight on by the positions and speeches of the leaders of the Democrat party. I wondered if it were not for the Democrat party if this man would have been injured.

The words and actions of the Democrats do have consequences. I wonder how many of our soldiers have been injured and died due to these words? When we trained this soldier to fight we did not tell him nor did we know that he had two enemies, the terrorists and the Democrat party.

I wanted to say a few words to this man but was afraid that he would interpret my compassion as pity. I was at a loss for words.

I left angry, very angry at the Democrat party.
