Did You Hear What They Said? Part 2

The time has come for Truth to be defended. If we don’t stand for something, we will surely fall for anything.

What follows is a compilation of research done over the last couple of months.

I challenge you to read ALL of it.

If this makes you mad, first ask yourself why, and then search your heart for the answers before voting November 2, 2004.

It’s hard to vote with both hands over your ears……..

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

"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

"Those who doubted whether Iraq or the world would be better off without Saddam Hussein don't have the judgment to be president or the credibility to be elected president."
-John Kerry

"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

"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

"The Bush administration would have you believe that when it comes to our allies, it won't make any difference who's president. They say the Europeans won't help us no matter what."
--John Kerry

"If Kerry is elected, we wouldn't send troops either. "We don't need any more targets in Iraq."
French Foreign Minister Michel Barnier
"We know we can't count on the French. We know we can't count on the Russians. We know that Iraq is a danger to the United States, and we reserve the right to take pre-emptive action whenever we feel it's in our national interest."
--John Kerry 1997 on CNN's "Crossfire"

"It's the wrong war in the wrong place at the wrong time."
--John Kerry September 6, 2004

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

"But if we are to be told by a foreign Power what we shall
do, and what we shall not do, we have Independence yet to seek,
and have contended hitherto for very little."
--George Washington

"Iraq may not be the war on terror itself, but it is critical to the outcome of the war on terror, and therefore any advance in Iraq is an advance forward in that and I disagree with the Howard Dean."
-- John Kerry, 12/15/03
"We must have a great honest national debate on Iraq. The President claims it is the centerpiece of his war on terror. In fact, Iraq was a profound diversion from that war and the battle against our greatest enemy, Osama bin Laden and the terrorists."
--John Kerry 9/20/04

"If you don't believe ... Saddam Hussein is a threat with nuclear weapons, then you shouldn't vote for me."
-- John Kerry, USA Today on 2/13/03

If you think I would have gone to war the way George Bush did, don't vote for me."
John Kerry, Jan 2004

"Kerry may correctly state that Iraq has become a haven for terrorists. But we have engaged the forces of Islamo-fascism and terrorism on their turf rather than ours. Surely this has made America safer."
--Larry Kudlow

"Having described the U.S. allies who liberated Iraq as a 'coalition of the bribed,' Mr. Kerry now insults the Iraqis he'd be working with if he becomes President."
--The Wall Street Journal

"As commander of the allied forces in the Middle East, I was responsible for the operation at Tora Bora, and I can tell you that the senator's understanding of events doesn't square with reality.
Contrary to Senator Kerry, President Bush never 'took his eye off the ball' when it came to Osama bin Laden. The war on terrorism has a global focus."
Gen. Tommy Franks

"International terrorism has as its goal to prevent the election of President Bush to a second term. If they achieve that goal, then that will give international terrorism a new impulse and extra power."
-Vladamir Putin

"To say there's only one focus in the war on terror doesn't really understand the nature of the war on terror...the front of this war is in more than one place."
George W. Bush
"I'm not exactly sure what you mean: passes the 'global test.' You take pre-emptive action if you pass a global test? My attitude is you take pre-emptive action in order to protect the American people."
George W. Bush

"They had to close the subway in New York when the Republican Convention was there."
John Kerry 9/30/04
"We did not stop any trains. I will not guess or opine what he was talking about."
NYC Transit Authority spokesman Paul Fleuranges

"At the debate, Kerry said he made a mistake about how he 'talk(s) about the war,' but 'the president made a mistake in invading Iraq. Which is worse?' This might be even worse: thinking the war was a mistake but voting for it anyway."
--Debra Saunders

"John Kerry's whole foreign policy is cemented to the notion that allies are everything. And yet he spends precious time ridiculing America's allies as a 'coalition of the bribed' and letting his surrogates call the Iraqi prime minister a Bush puppet."
--Jonah Goldberg

"'Talking about' stuff is all Kerry's got. He's no executive experience, he's never run a state, never founded a company, built a business, made payroll. Post-Vietnam, all he's done is talk and vote. For 20 years in the U.S. Senate: talk, vote, talk, vote. So, if his talking and voting are wrong, what else is there?"
--Mark Steyn

Democratic presidential nominee Sen. John Kerry conceded yesterday that he probably will not be able to convince France and Germany to contribute troops to Iraq if he is elected president.

"He will use those weapons of mass destruction again, as he has ten times since 1983."
- Sandy Berger, Clinton National Security Adviser, Feb, 18, 1998

"We must stop Saddam from ever again jeopardizing the stability and security of his neighbors with weapons of mass destruction."
- Madeline Albright, Feb 1, 1998

"Saddam Hussein has been engaged in the development of weapons of mass destruction technology which is a threat to countries in the region and he has made a mockery of the weapons inspection process."
- Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D, CA), Dec. 16, 1998

"We know that he has stored secret supplies of biological and chemical weapons throughout his country."
- Al Gore, Sept. 23, 2002

"We have known for many years that Saddam Hussein is seeking and developing weapons of mass destruction."
- Sen. Ted Kennedy (D, MA), Sept. 27, 2002

"We are in possession of what I think to be compelling evidence that Saddam Hussein has, and has had for a number of years, a developing capacity for the production and storage of weapons of mass destruction."
- Sen. Bob Graham (D, FL), Dec. 8, 2002
(Sen. Graham is on the Senate Intelligence Committee, which has access to the same intel as the President)

President Bush made a correct and courageous decision to liberate Iraq from Saddam Hussein's brutality, and that the president is correct to see the war in Iraq as a central front in the war on terrorism."
--Paul Bremer

"The kind of country we have here, the kind of society we have, the kind of strength we build in the United States will be the defense of freedom. If we do well here, if we meet our obligations, if we're moving ahead, then I think freedom will be secure around the world. If we fail, then freedom fails."
John F. Kennedy

"Our long-term security depends on our deep faith in liberty. And we'll continue to promote freedom around the world."
George W. Bush

"Farenheit 9/11 claimed high-ranking Saudi nationals were allowed to flee the United States immediately after the attacks at a time when American airspace had been closed to commercial traffic.
The Sept. 11 Commission found there was no evidence of Saudi flights before national airspace reopened on Sept. 13, 2001, and no evidence of political intervention."
--September 11 Commission Report

"If I'd been president last week, I would have immediately said to the Commission, "Yes, we're going to implement those recommendations and we want you to stay on the job for at least another 18 months."
--John Kerry July 28, 2004

"Those who vote on the basis of what the government can do for them are especially short-sighted during a war against worldwide terror networks. What good would it do to get free prescription drugs forever if your forever is likely to be cut short by more attacks like those on September 11, 2001?"
--Thomas Sowell

"If Kerry and his 2000-Florida-election-grudgeholding colleagues were truly opposed to all attempts at disenfranchising voters, they would own up to Kerry's liberalism. An uninformed electorate is little different than a disenfranchised one."
--David Limbaugh

"But how can punch cards be blamed for overvotes? And how does invalidating such a vote constitute, as is now commonly said, "disenfranchisement"? When poll taxes, meretricious literacy tests, hostile sheriffs and mobs stood between blacks and ballots, blacks were disenfranchised. To be disenfranchised is to have something done to you, not to do something to yourself."
-George Will

"If you can't figure out how to fill in the ovals or punch the chads — and some minority of voters will always botch it — that doesn't mean your right to vote was rescinded. It means that you didn't take your right to vote seriously enough to pay attention to the instructions."
--Jonah Goldberg

But the fact is, all income groups are paying a lowered tax burden this year under the Bush cuts, the "middle class" included.

"He’s also the only president in 72 years to lose jobs — 1. 6 million jobs lost."
— John Kerry
We have not lost jobs. We’ve created 1.7 million jobs. For some strange reason, Sen. Kerry has decided not to count self-employed people in his calculations. Realtors, appraisers, many financial planners, accountants, and contractors are owners of their own businesses, but in John Kerry’s world, they just don’t count. As with most untruths, there is a small kernel of truth that makes them seem plausible. Fewer people are on corporate payrolls in America today than when Bush took office. However, people have not moved from traditional jobs into the despair of unemployment, they’ve moved from traditional jobs into their dream of being an entrepreneur. They are not unemployed, they are self-employed and they recieve paychecks like the rest of us. The only difference is that it is their company.This is not just a statistical thing, it’s a philosophical thing. For Sen. Kerry, these people don’t have real jobs. To them and to me, they do.

Even according to the Labor Department’s payroll survey, which is a Bush critic’s favorite metric, the U.S. has created 1.4 million jobs so far this year. This works out to about 6,000 new jobs per day. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, foreign outsourcing erased about 4,200 jobs in the first quarter of this year. In other words: Three months of foreign outsourcing was erased by less than one day of domestic job growth.
-National Review Online

"There's a reason that they're saying Kerry is the No. 1 liberal in the Senate. It's because he IS the No. 1 liberal in the Senate."
Michael Moore

"If you mean dying in the course of the United Nations effort, yes, it is worth that. If you mean dying American troops unilaterally going in with some false presumption that we can affect the outcome, the answer is unequivocally no."
John Kerry April 17th, 1994

There’s the proof. If you’ve read this far, then I know that you truly care about America.
Remember, it’s hard to vote with both hands over your ears……..
