QUOTATION: People often say that, in a democracy, decisions are made by a majority of the people. Of course, that is not true. Decisions are made by a majority of those who make themselves heard and who vote - a very different thing. - Walter H. Judd

A Prediction - I like it!
I keep coming back to read this “prediction” time and time again…thought you might like to read it again, too. Charley Reese is BRILLIANT! – ‘cause 1) he agrees with me; 2) he remembers the invasion of Poland; 3) I think he’s got Bush’s number!
If you believe the president's own words, he has not the foggiest idea of what the war on terrorism is all about. His repeated claim that terrorists hate us because we are rich and free is so patently absurd as to be laughable. Osama bin Laden probably has a higher net worth than Bush, if not Dick Cheney, and what the terrorists object to is not us but our foreign policy, part of which is to turn the U.S. armed forces into a corporate oil-protective service.
I told you…he’s got Bush’s number – a dangerous mind-set. How he thinks he can continue with all of these “pork” give-aways designed to help get the Republicans back in office, lower taxes and fight the war, I just don’t know. And then, he’s gonna fix Social Security and health care, too. What I DO know is that the best way to judge future behavior is on PAST behavior. In his past four years, he lowered some people’s taxes by a whole lot – not ours! And he sure is fighting a war in sort of a haphazard way. No, he’s not fighting a war – he’s sending our young men to do his fighting for him. I noticed that the Bush or Cheney daughters are not stepping up to the plate! But then, of course, it’s an all-volunteer army – at least for now.
I’ve done enough ranting – I’m off to the gym! Keep the faith! Let’s hope Charley is right: Kerry will win by a big margin. We won’t have to fret about recounting and going to Supreme Court to appoint our next President.
