Why vote for Bush and what's wrong with Kerry?
President Bush has demonstrated that he is completely serious about the security of our nation. He is relentlessly pursuing our enemy. They are dying in the mountains of Afghanistan and the deserts of Iraq.
John Kerry's past shows a stunning lack of regard for our national security.
He slandered our military in his 1971 Senate testimony. He betrayed our nation when he met with the North Vietnamese and Viet Cong in Paris, France in 1971.
Giving aid and comfort to our enemy did not stop in 1971.
In 1986, he met with Daniel Ortega, leader of the Nicaraguan Sandinistas, to urge Ortega not to knuckle under to President Reagan's pressure on their communist regime.
He voted against the 1991 Gulf War (which exceeded all conditions of his "Global Test").
He voted for the current Iraq War, but voted against funding our troops.
His senate record is filled with votes against improving our military and intelligence organizations.
John Kerry and the liberal Democrats foolishly slashed our military strength in the 1990s. They cut the Army from 18 divisions to 10. They cut the Navy from 600 ships to less than 300. They likewise decimated the Air Force. At the same time, they increased the military's operational tempo by 300% -- sending them to deal with such "national security threats" as Haiti, Bosnia, and Kosovo.
His party's rhetoric and pamphlets are inciting violence, vandalism and voter fraud. He's done nothing to stop it.
John Kerry cannot be trusted to lead this nation during war.
