Did You Hear What They Said?

Before I begin, let me say that I don't even know if this entry will post. I have been trying to make daily posts, but they haven't shown up on the page. With my crammed schedule, the modus operandi is "It had better work the first time" when I type it.

Having a day off (finally) has allowed me to give this a little more time and effort. With that being the case, I'd like to devote a little space to something that I have been paying increasing attention to: the national scene.

Unless you've been hiding under a rock, there's an election coming in 40 days. We here in America are going to choose the man who wil lead us for the next 4 years. After combing the internet and reading various points of view, I have come across some interesting quotes by various people in the know. Now for your edification, here is what I have collected:

"I’d like to see our troops dispersed through the world only at the directive of the United Nations." - John Kerry 1970

"Unlike Ted Kennedy, Mr. Kerry is not seen as a man who can get things done. No significant legislation bears his name."
The Wall Street Journal

"Welcome to the Starbucks Revolution...Watch as they sing about the horrors of war. Listen as they warn of the evils of Bush. Snicker as they spread tales of the scourge of capitalism...while downing $4 lattes."

"Like generations before us, we have a calling from beyond the stars to stand for freedom. This is the everlasting dream of America — and tonight, in this place, that dream is renewed."
George W. Bush

"No wonder his opponents are bitter. They understand that a second Bush term could well alter the country's political landscape for a generation."
--The Wall Street Journal

"I remember a couple of days after Sept. 11 writing that weepy candlelight vigils were a cop-out: the issue wasn't whether you were sad about the dead people but whether you wanted to do something about it. Three years on, the two conventions drew the same distinction. If you want passivity and wallowing in victim culture, the Dems will do. If you want to win this thing, Bush is the only guy running."
--Mark Steyn

In 1992, from the floor of the Senate, John Kerry said, "If service or non-service in the [Vietnam] war is to become a test of qualification for high office...our nation would never recover from the divisions created by that war."

"I will not have my commitment to defend this country questioned by those who refused to serve when they could have and who misled America into Iraq."
--John Kerry

"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech"
Amendment I US Constitution

"We should increase funding [for the war in Iraq] by whatever number of billions of dollars it takes to win." --John F. Kerry, 31 August 2003
"$200 billion [for Iraq] that we're not investing in education and health care, and job creation here at home. ... That's the wrong choice." --John F.Kerry, 8 September 2004

"Clothing is wonderful, but let them go naked for a while, at least the kids. Water is necessary, and then generators, and then food, and then clothes."
--Teresa Heinz Kerry on hepling hurricane victims

"Statesmen my dear Sir, may plan and speculate for Liberty, but itis Religion and Morality alone, which can establish the Principlesupon which Freedom can securely stand."
--John Adams

"Kerry is crippled by having spent his Senate years as a moon orbiting Ted Kennedy's sun."
--George Will

"When you divorce the heroism of soldiering from the justice of the cause, what's left but a hollow braggart?" --Mark Steyn

"Saying 'it's the economy, stupid' is like shouting to the world that you really are stupid. I'm happy more of the jobless are finding jobs. I'd just be a lot happier if more of the terrorists were losing theirs." --Neil Cavuto

"The fact that CBS News would coordinate with the most senior levels of Sen. Kerry's campaign to attack the president is a stunning and deeply troubling revelation,"
Dan Bartlett, White House communications director.

"So today, Rathergate is just so much foam on the surface. The deep current of our time is that the old networks have lost their power to a bunch of scruffy no-names. Techno-change is shaping history yet again."
James P. Pinkerton,

"Bush can develop a key campaign issue over whether it is legal for the United States to act in its own self-defense without obtaining Security Council approval. Ratification by an assemblage of nations bribed through the Oil-for-Food program should not be a prerequisite for American action."
Dick Morris, former Clinton advisor, Sept. 23, 2004

"Instead of moral absolutes, the Left holds legal absolutes. 'Legal' for the Left is what 'moral' is for the Right. The religious have a belief in God-based moral law, and the Left believes in man-made law as the moral law."
--Dennis Prager

"Terrorism didn't begin on September 11, 2001. ... It began in the hearts of evil men.... It won't go away, even if America withdraws from Iraq tomorrow. Had we not gone there in the first place, terrorism would still be around."
--Cal Thomas

"Kerry has defined himself as a liberal...and will pay for it with his defeat."
Dick Morris, former Clinton advisor, Sept. 23, 2004

Wow.........I won't tell anyone who to vote for. Only you and Jesus will see who you pull the lever for, but I wonder: Will you be able to tell your kids why you voted for that person...with a straight face?
