Re: What the 2006 Election Is Actually About... and Mission Demolished!
Date: Aug. 21, 2006
This election in 2006 is about denial.
Are we as a nation going to face the reality that America is heading in the wrong direction or are we going to lie to ourselves for 2 more years and pretend that everything is just fine?
If we are going to survive we are going to have to stop
the breeding and accept that America needs a new direction. However, I am still waiting for the Democrats to state what they have to offer. I want to hear a message of change. I just can't stand the lying anymore.
The nation is in really bad shape and we can't pretend that it's all going to just go away. I'm looking for real courage and I'm not seeing it. If America turns its back on reality then reality might turn its back on America.
And that's a scary thought.
Today, Bush said that we aren't going to leave Iraq until the "job is done".
I suppose we should have got out of Iraq 4 years ago when Bush declared "Mission Accomplished," because we were closer to having the job done then that we are now! Today, Iraq is a lost cause with a civil war raging, and our troops are there to try to hide that civil war until after the elections.
We are left with a choice of accepting failure now or waiting till things get worse. I fail to see the logic in staying the wrong course.
