This time, it’s NOT the
Written by JB Williams
According to a nationwide Newsweek Poll conducted October 19-20, 2006, American voters
will be going to the polls November 7th concerned about the
- The Economy
- Health Care
- Terrorism 13%
- Gas & Oil
- Local Issues
- Nothing 2%
- Not sure 4%
In other words, the liberal press has been very
successful in convincing average American voters that the situation in Iraq
is the most important issue of our day. After years of anti-American headlines
filled with traitorous “leaks” of allegedly secure national
security and defense efforts, how could it be anything else?
Before we discuss the facts concerning Iraq,
let’s see how the average voter is handling the facts concerning the
other important issues on their list.
This time, it’s NOT the economy Stupid! Although,
18% of poll respondents have missed this economic news and remain concerned
about an issue that currently has little room for improvement.
Like every newly elected President, when George W.
Bush was sworn into office on January 20, 2001, he inherited the existing
conditions of his predecessor. In this case, a sagging economy threatening
recession, a dot bomb crash, rising corporate corruption partying on borrowed
time, weakened military and intelligence operations and a world-wide terror
movement that would soon culminate in the events of 9/11 eight months into a
new administration. No new administration has ever faced so many real and
overwhelming challenges. So how did they do?
Bush Sr. was defeated in 1992 under the Democrat
campaign mantra “It’s the economy stupid.”
Bush Sr. had just won the first Gulf War, ejecting the
Hussein regime from Kuwait
and stopping their planned invasion of Saudi
Arabia. His approval rating was through the
roof, but only for a moment. He had inflation under control, bringing it down
from an administration high of 5.39% in 1990 to just 3.03% by the 1992
election. The nation’s productivity was good and so were consumer prices
and wages. However, he had a growing unemployment problem that reached 7.5% by
Election Day, giving him a four year average unemployment rate if 6.3%
It would cost him re-election.
As tech-stock businesses boomed on positive
speculation throughout the 90’s, Clinton
was able to bring that unemployment rate down to a 5.2% eight year average,
using both speculative dot bomb tech market growth and the growth of government
to remove folks from the unemployment line.
So how is Bush Jr. doing with the economy by direct
For starters, his October unemployment number of 4.4%,
well below the eight year average of the Clinton administration, making his six
year unemployment average 5.3%, almost exactly that of Bill Clinton. But
that’s just a beginning.
he accomplished this by lowering, not raising, taxes. The jobs being created
under Bush Jr. are not temporary dot bomb or government jobs, they are real
productive private sector jobs that did not require the growth of government
just to reduce unemployment rolls. It has resulted in consistent economic
growth, real profits and record market values, otherwise known as economic
It was also accomplished despite the single largest
hit on the U.S.
economy on 9/11, fear of future attacks, the expensive international War on
Terror, increased international competition for energy products and a huge
trade deficit resulting from Clinton
In short, few in American history have done better
with the economy and no President since FDR has faced as many challenges while
doing it. Interest rates, inflation, taxes and unemployment are low. Home
ownership, stock values & retirement plans, productivity, national security
and overall prosperity is at an all-time high. So this time, it’s NOT the
People are next concerned with Health Care costs and
few are more concerned than doctors being forced from their profession by
sky-rocketing liability insurance costs. Republicans want to curtail the
unnecessary frivolous legal expenses making health care less affordable than
ever in history. But Democrats biggest campaign donors remain trail lawyers. So
their answer is socialized medicine.
Despite the events of 9/11 and many other terror
attacks around the globe, only 13% state a concern for the ongoing threat of
terrorism. This number will change the moment terrorists succeed in a second
attack on US
soil. They have not been able to do so under Bush, but as terrorists around the
globe are campaigning, that could quickly change under the Democrats they hope
you will elect.
That brings us back to the number one issue on the
minds of American voters, Iraq,
the place known by world intelligence and military experts as well as
international terrorists as “the central front in the war on
terror”, but referred to by Democrats as “the departure from the
war on terror”.
goes, so goes Iran,
Saudi Arabia, Pakistan,
even North Korea.
The world is waiting to see if the American people have the stomach to win the
war against international terrorism, namely against those rogue regimes of the
Middle East that breed, train, support and harbor terrorism, now seeking
nuclear weapons capability.
Early this morning, the most brutal dictator in recent
history was convicted of severe crimes against humanity by a new democratically
elected Iraqi government and justice system. Saddam Hussein was sentenced to
death by hanging. Many Iraqi citizens celebrated in the streets at the news
that their tormentor was finally brought to justice.
Yet other so-called “insurgents”
demonstrate in anger at the news that the most brutal regime known to modern
man, is out of business. There is an undeniable message in all of this and nobody
makes this message clearer than the terrorists themselves.
"Of course Americans should vote Democrat,"
Jihad Jaara, a senior member of the Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigades terror group, and
infamous leader of the 2002 siege of Bethlehem's
Church of the Nativity. "This is why American
Muslims will support the Democrats, because there is an atmosphere in America that encourages those who want to withdraw from Iraq. It is time
that the American people support those who want to take them out of this Iraqi
mud," said Jaara, speaking to WND from exile in Ireland.
"As Arabs and Muslims we feel proud of this
talk," he told WND. "Very proud from the great
successes of the Iraqi resistance. This success that brought the big superpower
of the world to discuss a possible withdrawal."
The fact that the terrorists are openly campaigning
for Democrats who have been openly campaigning for the terrorists for years
now, by leaking U.S. intelligence, referring to U.S. Soldiers as “terrorist running Soviet styled Gulags”, accusing
American soldiers of “wholesale raping,
torturing, murdering and plundering of innocent civilians in the dead of night”,
really should be reason enough to vote even more Democrats from power.
But as you can see in the Newsweek Poll, the massive
effort to spread anti-American propaganda (referred to by Democrats as only
anti-Bush), has been hugely successful.
Are American Democrats this stupid? Or are they now
just this un-American?
I once thought it was just a matter of mass ignorance.
Today, after years of debating the facts with American Leftists, I am convinced
that they are just this anti-American. Nobody is that stupid. The terrorists
are campaigning for their Democratic leaders.
How can any half intelligent individual miss that
As for Republicans too busy or too frustrated to
bother voting, well, mark this date on your calendar. November 7th
may mark the date upon which you, not liberals, let your country fall to
enemies here and abroad. You might be a modern Republican, but you are no
I’ll be in the voting booth voting against
Democrats and the terrorists who campaign for them.
Try explaining your frustrated no-vote to soldiers as
they return from combat! 70% of Iraqi citizens walked miles through a gauntlet
of gunfire just to hold their purple finger in the air. You are supposed to be
the beacon of freedom and self-governance for the world.
That job may now rightfully belong to the Iraq
people… They have earned it! Too many Americans have forsaken it!
