Can't beat'em? Join'em!
I too have taken up the call of George W. Bush as commander-in-chief when he says, "the Constitution is just a damned piece of paper." What insight and candor. I have come to love the resoluteness of Bush. He has demonstrated what it means to sacrafice without sacrafice in the "war
It is really a good thing that the Bush administration has minds like Donald Rumsfeld, Dick (Straight shooter) Cheney and Condoleezza Rice who have fought the war in Iraq on the cheap. Just imagine the fiscal disaster this war would have been if the Democrats were in change. This nation would be in debt to the tune of trillions of dollars and the American taxpayer would be paying higher taxes to boot!
I am so thankful that I have finally seen the wisdom of what it means to be a compassionate conservative. Cutting funding to Head-Start programs. Increasing Medicare costs to the elderly that offset the paltry increase to their Social Security payments. (A perfect example of sacrafice without sacrafice from the first president with a MBA.) Making sure that the nations school children can read and pass a standardized test but are unable to read a chapter book, or think critically in their geography classes. Surely standardized testing is the best way to make sure that the US continues to fall behind the rest of the world in educational achievement.
I hope that all the Democrats in Congress and all their supporters, from the most left-wing liberal to the DLC conservative will come to understand the wisdom and the power of uniting under a single unified party, with a banner that best represents the unanimity of the people. Long may that banner yet wave, in the land of the "free," and the home of the "afraid."
