At Least Three Reasons I Could Never Be a Democrat

1. In 2003, with Ronald Reagan suffering from severe Alzheimer's disease, CBS pulled a particularly nasty docudrama about him – not in response to any threats from Republican politicians, but due to immense public pressure. Among the scenes in the version that was originally scheduled to air was one that showed Nancy Reagan begging her husband to help AIDS patients, only to be told, "They that live in sin shall die in sin." Elizabeth Egloff, the playwright who wrote the script, admitted that there was no evidence such a conversation took place. No Republican politician ever asked that the show be pulled.

On Sunday and Monday nights we saw a docudrama about 9/11 that ABC, to its credit, ran with some changes even after being threatened by Democrats. “By contrast, Harry Reid, the Senate minority leader, joined other top Democrats in issuing a thinly veiled threat to ABC. They wrote Robert Iger, the chairman of ABC's parent company Disney, to urge him to cancel the program. They reminded him his network enjoyed ‘a free broadcast license predicated on the fundamental understanding of your principle obligation to act as a trustee of the public airwaves in serving the public interest. Nowhere is this public interest obligation more apparent than in the duty of broadcasters to serve the civic needs of a democracy by promoting an open and accurate discussion of political ideas and events.’ Commentators across the political spectrum called the letter by Democratic leaders a form of intimidation”.

2. When former President Nixon appeared to have encouraged the obstruction of justice to cover up some illegal acts, Republican leaders went to him, told him he had lost their support, and urged him to resign, which he did. When it became clear that former President Clinton had committed sexual harassment of a White House intern and then had committed perjury, virtually every Democrat circled the wagons and then lied and spun to protect him. In addition, we have Clinton, Carter and Gore running around the world criticizing a Republican president and even their country. This breaks 230 years of precedence, and is most inappropriate. When did you ever hear former Presidents Bush (41) or Ford criticize Carter or Clinton? The answer: never.

3. Events of the past few years, particularly since 1993, and as clearly shown in “The Path To 9/11” make it very obvious to even the most thick-headed among us that terrorism threats cannot possibly be handled as a criminal matter, as Democrats want to do, but must be pre-empted whenever possible. These Islamic mass murderers are running around trying to kill thousands of non-believers, not only in the advanced countries of the west, but in primitive areas like Sudan. Pre-emption means you use every tool at your disposal to find out what they are doing and planning to do, and you deny them bases of operation however you can. The war in Iraq is at the very center of this fight (it is where these fanatics want to establish the capital of their caliphate), and it is getting very tiresome to hear the illogical bleating and complaining that is going on. Perhaps some people still don’t understand, that as of this writing, there have been, worldwide, 5805 terrorist acts involving mass murder by Islamists just since 9/11.

I would almost feel sorry for those who hate President Bush so much that they are able to believe the most disgusting and incredible conspiracy theories imaginable – if it were not for the fact that they are endangering my life with their nonsense.
