Vote Republican

November 04, 2002

To the editor:

To all voters in the USA, and especially all the northeast states from Virginia to Maine. The Democrats have no solutions to our major problems, and as usual blame the messenger rather than dispute the message. The Democratic party has been so Clintonized that they now put getting controlling power ahead of both the economy and our security. In the previous four to five presidencies, each president has had around 90 percent of their judges confirmed. G.W. Bush has only had about 45 percent of his judge appointments confirmed.

The Democrats didn't get their Senate majority from the wishes of the voters, just from a run of the mill pathetic VT turncoat. Democrats continue to delay everything until after the midterm elections, which will be helped by millions of dollars from the major unions, often against the wishes of many of their members. President Bush was left with major problems in the economy, the roots of which began during the eight years of the Clinton era of obfuscation and outright lies.

In previous presidencies in wartime, the president was not usually constrained by the unions when incompetent people needed to be removed. I have been in a union a couple of times, and seen these unions many times support a member, even when that member was known by everyone, including the union, to be guilty and needed to lose his job. While the GOP has made a few mistakes and I don't always agree with some of Bush's decisions, I realize that his advisers sometimes have their own agenda, and he can't micromanage everything.

At least part of the blame for the 9/11 attack can be traced to politicians taking much of the FBI and CIA effectiveness away from them 10 or more years ago, and also to political correctness stupidity that was pushed, leaving real investigation as a poor after-thought. Bush needs to have a majority in both Houses, so he can do what needs to be done. Clinton had that during his first term, and wasted it womanizing, and not going after terrorists after the other bombings during his watch. Tom Daschle got his present job due to a fluke. He tries to talk like he's a nice guy, but he is as ruthless as any politician. He has ideas of running for president, but even Al Sharpton has higher support than Daschle does. God forbid that either of them ever gets to the White House.

In other words, vote GOP and let something be accomplished in the next two years, don't hamstring the doers by supporting the doubters.
