The future of our country is on the line this November 2nd and if the American people choose wrongly we are done. The choice between straight talk and action and the words of ambivalence, retreat, and abdication cannot be more stark. On September 14, 2001, grabbing a bullhorn President Bush told the chanting, cheering crowd, “I can hear you. The rest of the world hears you. And the people who knocked down these buildings will hear from all of us soon.”

Ever since September 11th President George W. Bush has chosen the harder right instead of the easier wrong. Our nations military and our allies under his watch have freed the nations of Afghanistan and Iraq and the terrorists are fighting us on foreign soil, not in our homeland.

Senator John F. Kerry has accomplished little in the past twenty years. Had he stood on that mound of rubble in New York, Senator Kerry would have pronounced pretty words of comfort, followed by judicially approved warrants. Osama Bin Laden would not be in hiding today. Saddam Hussein would still be torturing his people.

Kerry is not the right man to lead us. In these historic times our national domestic issues are secondary to our national security. We can care nothing about our social security or our prescription drugs if our homeland is under attack. President George W. Bush has vowed to defend us and he can be believed. Kerry promises to defend us after we are attacked. Those are the only believable words he has spoken.
