Is this what America Wanted?

Well, it's not what I wanted but we can't always get what we want, can we?

For some time now, I have been pretty much a one issue voter and my one issue is The War. Call it the Iraq War, the Afghan War, the War on Terror or more to the point, the War to Preserve our Civilization, it is all connected and is the issue that matters the most to me. Yes, I have opinions on abortion, immigration, healthcare and the myriad of other issues on the table, but none of them really matter of we fail in the war of survival in which we are now involved. This is the most serious of issues and we need the most serious of people in place to deal with it.

When President Bush said, before a joint Session of Congress "We will not tire, we will not falter and we will not fail" I took it seriously. The election of people such as Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid to the highst posts in the legislative branch signals a tiredness, a faltering and eventual failure in this most serious of issues. These are people who have argued against the wiretapping of foreign terrorists and for bestowing rights to them when they are captured. Most importantly, these are people who have pledged withdrawl from Iraq. These are people who either ignore or are too blind to see the enormous threat that clearly lies before us. They're just not serious people.

But this is the hand we are dealt and play it we must. While we have suvived worse leaders, rarely, if ever, have we been presented with a threat as dire.
