Keeping our Eye on the Ball!
I took the bait the Republicans were offering on the Gay Marriage Amendment.
As President Bush himself stated:
"For decades, activist judges have tried to redefine America by court order," Bush said Monday. "Just this last week in New Jersey, another activist court issued a ruling that raises doubt about the institution of marriage. We believe marriage is a union between a man and a woman, and should be defended."President Bush wants to arouse the irrational fears of homosexuals among his base.
He wants you to believe like many in America, that if we allow same-sex couples rights, as they do in England, France, Spain, Denmark, South Africa, and elsewhere, that soon we will be allowing the legalization of bestiality or polygamy.
It aint true but people are easily manipulated.
So forget about Iraq if you wish. Only 101 G.I.'s died in October.
Forget about the Signing Statements and the violation of the Constitutional issues of balance of power. That is far too complex an issue for voters to grasp.
Forget about global warming.
Forget about the deficit and the tax cuts for the wealthy.
Forget about wiretapping without warrants.
Forget about secret prisons, rendition of people to third world countries for torture, and our own nation's adoption of torture techniques.
Forget about the loss of Habeas Corpus.
Because you have gays you can bash. People that want to get married! Now THAT is a crisis.
This nation needs new direction now more than ever in its history! Senator John Kerry offers that experience, wisdom, and honesty that we need today! Don't let them Swift Boat our nation Senator Kerry! Keep on coming! We have got your back!
