Open letter to John Kerry
To be an American is something more than an aspiration or an idea. Americans have a right to be led by a fellow American, not by someone who received a good part of his education in a European country; by a drifter who lived in a boarding house. Americans have a right to choose a leader who does not chase after very rich women to satisfy his political hunger, or by a looser who cut classes to learn how to fly. An American leader should be something more than an adventure seeker. A leader should actually convey a sense of core values and have roots ... not contradict himself at every possible opportunity, and show a different face depending on the audience. John Kerry is a political ghost. His 'values' are invisible – his 'ethic', fleeting.
Do Americans want a Mozambique-born cosmopolitan liberal first lady with a Portuguese accent in the White House? Do Americans want a Marxist/socialist woman who inherited over five-hundred-million-dollars from her former husband as our next first lady – who has been quoted as saying 'No American boy or girl should have to go to war and lose their lives because of our gluttonous need for oil'? The same woman who owns three SUV's!? The same woman who said that 'Saddam Hussein had nothing to do with terrorism'? Who are you people? 'What' are you?
Bush bashers who criticize the way he handles the press and gives speeches are contradicting themselves. To those critics who say 'Politics is an art form, and 'therefore' things are said in a certain way to please the crowd', etc. This kind of thinking is way off the mark and was expressed in a letter I recently received from a friend. When on the subject of flip-flopping she said 'Welcome to the world of politics, that's the nature of the game and if you haven't figured that out yet hopefully you will soon. EVERYBODY including good old George Bush plays to the crowd. They set up to be the most appealing to the audience'. Quite revealing, I thought. If entertainment is what you are looking for then hire a magician, not a president. For those old enough to remember the television program To Tell The Truth: where there were three people associated with a story, and the panelists had to guess who was the real person involved. At the end of the program, the host would ask 'Will the real, (so and so), please stand up'! I get the same sensation listening to John Kerry as I did from watching To Tell The Truth. You just don't know who the real John Kerry is because he refuses to tell you. He puts on a different face for different crowds, and in the process makes a fool out of himself. Kerry is not even true to his own religion. So how is it possible to have faith in a man who has no faith in himself? He's just playing to the liberal elite who are picking up the tab for his campaign. Maybe he's pulling one over on them. Who knows? I don't even think John Kerry knows.
No, George Bush isn't perfect. We all have problems and we all fall from grace every now and then. But that's not the point. The point is that I know who Bush is because he wears the same face for everyone. I know what to expect from Bush because he is consistent. He has character. I recall Bush's eyes watering up on television once as he was discussing his fellow American victims of 911. I don't even have to like him, but at least I know what to expect. Kerry puts one on edge because you don't know what his next move is. Why do we look up to people in the first place? We want a leader that we can admire, or for someone else to set an example for us and for our children. Do we want our commander-in-chief to allow his own daughter to show off her breasts at a film festival the way John Kerry's daughter did recently? >> http://www.strangecosmos.com/content/item/100009.html
<< That's not the kind of leader I want, and I pity those who do. One wonders if this was not a deliberate side show in the Kerry campaign to attract supporters. Sexual promiscuity, enormous wealth, political invisibility, and the looming Marxist/socialist leanings threaten business interests, the image of Americana, American values, and the stability of the family environment. Is this what we 'really' want? Or are we so caught up in republican this and democrat that, that we can no longer see the light at the end of the tunnel.
If, hypothetically, a child old enough to understand something about politics turns to his Kerry-supporting mom and asks 'Mommy, what does John Kerry believe' ... then how is it possible for that parent to convey something of value to the child, given the moral relativism that is so pervasive in Kerry's policies.
John Kerry is a rogue member of the Skull and Bones society at Yale. The difference between Kerry and other members of Skull & Bones is that Kerry betrayed its philosophy by constantly speaking out against Vietnam. Kerry is not a team player. Bush did not serve in Vietnam but wished he had. Kerry did serve but wished he hadn't. John Kerry applied for navy patrol boat duty in Nam, because he was mesmerized by John F. Kennedy's sailing and philandering. Kerry explains his yen for adventure when he said, 'I cut classes, I didn't do much. I spent a lot of time learning to fly'. Obviously, Kerry's hunger for power is not based on a love, or loyality for American values (or his wife's) ... they are based on recklessness and a sense of adventure. I would hate to see a family of pigs like this in the White House!
This situation is remarkably similar to what we had in 1963 when the ungrateful and self righteous Kennedy clan was also threatening to become a monarchy on American soil. So far, Kerry has succeeded in threatening to reconstitute the failed liberal bureaucracy of a bygone era. And for what it is worth, like the Kennedy's, Kerry has also succeeded in angering the Catholic Church. Politics makes for strange bedfellows.
