  • The L-Word Returns

    President Bush did really well on the domestic issues this evening and the next debate is domestic issues

    That leads up to a point I have had rolling around in my head for a while now which was confirmed last night. All of the talking heads point out that the strength of the Democrats lies in domestic issues. This is simply not true.

    The fact is, Democrats have a slight advantage, but it is in foreign issues. This is decidedly not because they have facts on their side, but rather because of the propaganda they have floating around and because of the willingness they have from the MSM to paint the Iraq War effort as a failure. The Democrats and the left in this country were under the mistaken notion that foreign policy was the strong point of this presidency, and they believed that if they somehow managed to undermine that, Bush would go down easily.

    The problem, however, is that Bush has been far stronger domestically than anyone on the left would give him credit for being. In addition, the Democrats made the mistake of choosing the most liberal senator in Congress, a point which makes Kerry quite weak on domestic issues. His positions simply do not reflect what the average American believes in and wants from the government. His voting record largely contradicts that which he says he will do. On conservative issues, he has voted against issues that Americans want. On issues that would appeal to liberals, he has, for the most part, failed to show up to vote.

    I read an article after the last debate that talked about how the President might have been sandbagging. I am thinking this could be true. He and his campaign know that the left and the MSM have muddied up the waters on foreign policy. He could afford to throw away that debate to give his opponent a little security. I personally have high hopes that the president might drive the final nail into the coffin in the next debate.

    Bush owns the domestic issues on the table this election cycle.

    Forget about it this time.

    Official FReeper sentiment seems to be that we won't touch any of the polls after this debate.

    Bush so clearly won that these numbers will speak for themselves to the fact that they are rigged, one way or another.

    William Martel to where's_the_Outrage?
    A serious rethinking of the Electoral College will have to await the day when a president is elected by an overwhelming popular vote. With such a mandate, he (or she) might feel secure enough to institute a change long overdue.

    Sorry Cynthia. Doesn't quite work that way. No matter how popular a president may be, he cannot institute a change on that level. The size of his "mandate" is irrelevant. He will ultimately have to move to amend the constitution, which simply isn't going to pass as the amendment will ultimately take away influence from the very states such an amendment would need to sign on in order to pass.

    This is all proposterous, and I am blown away that these people have the gall to even try it.

    These people are socialists through and through. Most people do not understand that fact. A socialist does not understand the concept of a "democracy" in the same way we do. For us, as Americans, the whole purpose of the democratic system we have in our Republic is to reaffirm the fact that government is formed by the people for the sake of doing the will of the people. We choose our representatives and we choose our leaders. The government is built by us and exists solely at our pleasure.

    Americans realize that fact in ways that are foreign to outsiders. We were the first in the modern world to base the way our system worked on that fact. Throughout the rest of the world, government exists and then there are the people. People living in other "democracies" believe they are somehow "lucky" to be able to vote and have a voice in their government, as if it would somehow still be legitimate if they didn't have that "priviledge". I think at times that we are the only nation in the world that realizes that voting is a right.

    To a socialist, democracy is socialism. It is less about the right of the people to determine the way they are governed and more about mystically divining the vague "will of the people" which, incidiently, happens to be the socialist agenda. When socialism is not advanced, these people will scream how democracy is being denied and suppressed. When socialists triumph, even through underhanded means, "democracy prevails".

    There is no such thing as "internationally accepted democracy". The will of the people of a nation is not an international thing. Socialism, on the other hand, is internationalist. When we hear of "international standards" in democracy, we must beware. The only thing that truly matters is that the people of a nation are able to determine those who represent them in their government.

    Welcome to Free Republic. A little advice, though: try to avoid the Pole bashing. There are many of us on this forum who are very sympathetic to Poland, especially because they have been one of our biggest allies so far in the war against terror. (Being of partial German heritage, I do wish the same could be said of Germany, but alas...)

    Just to knitpick (and I love knitpicking crap like this), but, according to the numbers they gave, it looks like presidents over the past 30 years don't get reelected when the index is under 90, not just 100. There were no examples of it being above 90 with the incumbent losing.

    Personally, I'm getting tired of groups such as AUSCS and their efforts to stiffle the First Amendment rights of Church groups. The Constitution clearly says that the right to worship freely shall not be infringed, which is clearly the threat here by those who silence preachers in the pulpit from making political statements.

    I am starting to think that we ought to just do what they are trying to force us not to do. Maybe they will take us to court and maybe they will win, but at least we will have stood up for that in which we believe.

    We need to start waking up and realize that these hypocrites are violating our God-given right not to have the government interfere in how we worship. THAT is what the Establishment Clause was all about in the first place.

  • Kerry's BIGGEST Mistakes in the Debate

    William Martel to xzins
    I personally think that Kerry's comments about "outsourcing" our efforts to Afghan rebel groups is a bit of a mistake as well. I am personally of the opinion that it was precisely because of this tactic that we have done so well in Afghanistan. I remember that before that war, naysayers were commenting on how we would be caught in a quagmire there due to the terrain. Our solution was simply to use forces that were very familiar with the areas and conditions present.

    Our "outsourcing", as Mr. Kerry likes to refer to it, is a large part of the reason why we have succeeded in a place where the Soviets and the British before them had failed.

    William Martel to William Martel

    Furthermore, the treaty creates a definite market for the technologies we would be producing. Businesses in other countries would need to buy our products in order to comply with the treaty they signed on to.

    That's the part I love most about it: before the Kyoto goes into effect, people from outside this country talk about how stupid we are that we can't see the consequences of not joining in on the treaty. After it goes into effect, they will whine about how we somehow manipulated the situation, forcing them to sign the treaty while taking advantage of it to improve our own economy.

    Foreign stupidity makes America stronger.

    William Martel to Cincinatus' Wife

    Pure silliness. Just because the US isn't signed onto the treaty doesn't mean we can't develop the technologies it calls for or involve ourselves in the "credit trading" process. We just aren't bound to use the stuff.

    In fact, it seems more likely than not that we'll dominate these markets by not taking part in the treaty.

    By not being involved, our economy remains strong, which will allow for more capital. Since industry won't be bound to obey stupid regulations, producers will find it in their benefit to manufacture the technology here. If the technology works and is not overly expensive, it most likely will be used here without coersion by the regulations.

    Not taking part in this foolishness makes us far stronger. We ought to be laughing when other nations are signing onto Kyoto.

    The problem with these people is that they think they are tough because they are able to so easily bully their own people around. They have thugs march around and, for the most part, people comply with their demands. They think it makes them strong.

    They aren't familiar with what a real military force can do. They can bluster all they want, but when the war comes they will be crushed just like Saddam.

    They deserve it too.

    William Martel to Fletcher J
    We put our brave soldiers in harm's way for a cause few can articulate.

    Clinton seemed to articulate it well, based on the same reasoning Bush used. Would Mr. Williams question Clinton's reasoning?

    To make it easier, we label those we fight in the most prejudicial terms. Insurgents, radicals, extremists, Saddamites. You hear all manner of expressions. If not, then why are these terms familiar? We're not so far removed from the days of labeling Native Americans redskins, savages, renegades, terms it's still possible to hear in Turner classic movies.

    It's a pattern old as history. Demean your enemies, dehumanize them and then it's OK to kill them. The resistance in Iraq cooperates in this ritual.

    They seem to do an ample job of dehumanizing themselves by blowing up civilians and beheading captives.

    Beheadings, kidnappings and bombings provide ample excuses to exterminate the purveyors with extreme prejudice and, in too many cases, to kill families, friends and spectators along with them.

    If anything, we have been slow to respond to these groups, being over-diplomatic if anything. But how is it wrong to use extreme prejudice to kill those who themselves purposefully go out of their way to kill innocent men and women in the most brutal ways possible?

    When we kill innocents, it is demonstratably unintentional. When they kill innocents, it is most certainly purposeful.

    If the former is morally equivalent to the latter, then there is no morality worth defending and we should be able to do what we damn well please anyway.

    William Martel to GIJoel

    You are starting to take this to a very personal level. I've read many of MarMema's posts in this forum - she is a strong contributer and often talks sensibly. I personally feel offended that you would imply she is a morally bankrupt charlatan.

    I don't think most reasonable people here in this forum come even close to buying into your "Russia is still the Soviet Union" ideology. The simple fact is that the Soviet Union is dead. You can whine all you want about ex-communists running the show, but the fact is that everyone with even a hint of political experience in that country is an ex-communist. That's what you get when a single political party dominates a system for 80 years. Not everyone who belonged to the Communist party was ideologically a dyed-in-the-wool communist anyway - more often than not, people were coerced into it if they were to have any standing in Soviet society.

    The biggest fact that flies in the face of your ideology is the fact that Christianity, and the Orthodox Church in particular, is absolutely thriving throughout Russia. If the Soviets were still in control in the background, they certainly would not have allowed THAT, of all things, to happen. It also seems far from likely that they would allow capitalist concepts like a flat tax to thrive as well, seeing as such things promote a strong capitalist society and, as an extension, freedom.

    Perhaps you will turn on me and start calling me names as you have to others who have dared to disagree with your rhetorical nonsense. I can't say that I much care. I am just tired of sitting around while you go around dragging the names of good FReepers through the mud.

    As for your "remnants", you might be better served seeking them elsewhere. This is a serious political forum: we don't have much room for kooky conspiracy theories here.

    Personally, I am of the opinion that if Kerry somehow manages to win the election, he will find himself unable to pull troops out like he wants (seeing as he has a poor exit strategy) and will end up turning the affair into a real quagmire.

    My other fear is that it is a Kerry Administration that would bring about the much worried about "draft" we keep hearing about. The Bush Administration is well aware of the fact that a professional volunteer army is far better than a drafted one. I don't believe the same can be said about the Democrats. Kerry will go in with no plausible exit strategy and no strategy for actually winning, thus stirring up a quagmire that, from a Democrat point of view, will require more troops.

    It's just a hunch but I don't doubt that it could happen for a second.

    I said this on a mirror posting of this thread, but I think it bears repeating here.

    If Kerry gets elected, he'll go in with the exit strategy that he'll magically whip up support from foreign nations that will take over for him. obviously, we know that's not what's going to happen.

    What will happen is that Kerry won't have a back-up exit strategy. As a matter of fact, he won't have a strategy whatsoever. As a result, the "second Vietnam" liberals claim that we are in now will be actualized, and Kerry will be left sitting there without a plausible way to withdraw. As the situation advances, and concerns at home regarding troop shortages increase, the Democrats might institute a draft. Democrats don't have the sense to realize that drafted troops are not nearly the same quality as voluntary troops.

    Point made simple? If Iraq is to be preserved and our troops are to be properly supported, and if we don't want to see a draft in our future to support a war that Kerry neither knows how to fight nor withdraw from, then we'd better ramp up support for Bush and pray to God Kerry doesn't even get close to the Oval Office.

    Given the amount of criticism Nader and those who voted for him in 2000 have been receiving from the Dems, I have a feeling that this isn't going to work. They've been receiving pressure left and right from Democrats and are probably starting to resent it.

    Lots of people are voting for Nader precisely because they don't like Bush but they don't want Kerry to win either. I somehow don't see this trade-deal working out in the end. If they wanted Kerry to win, they'd vote for Kerry in the first place.

    Conservative on the Internet break stories exposing CBS documents as forgeries, so instead of demanding the identity of those responsible for the fraud, they seek the identities of those who exposed the farce in the first place.

    What gets me, however, is the fact that, had the roles been reversed, we would be hearing something very different right now. Had Internet liberals exposed memos making accusations against a Democratic candidate, we would be hearing about how "praiseworthy" blogs and Internet activists are. We would be hearing about how the right to privacy online is an inviolable right. There would be no theories floating around in the media on how the Democrats might have forged those documents - those people would not see a minute of air time because they would be labeled right-wing conspiracy theory kooks. The investigations would be aimed at the GOP and the Republican candidate.

    We may be winning, and these strategies on their part may be helping us, but it makes me sick. I am almost afraid of the hatred they will start spewing in November after they lose the election.

    Hmm, a political party making the people fear its backlash if it loses an election. That reminds me quite a bit of a certain political party in Italy during the early twentieth century...

    There's nothing like a garden gnome to bring back that good ol' bipartisan spirit.

    (Did I really just say that?)
