Who to vote for?
Well, I have to tell you... The Republicans have let me down quite a bit lately. No, I'm not talking about the Foley incident. As best we can tell, he's committed no crime other than being a complete moron. Of course, if he did engage is illegal activity, then let the punishment fit the crime. At least he had the moral disposition to resign, unlike any and every Democrat who ever actually committed a sexual offense...
But I digress.
Who to choose...
I'm not one to beat around the bush. No pun intended there, either. My friends have said I can be direct and honest to a fault, which is probably why I don't tend to have "casual" friends...
Besides the obvious, that to choose a Democrat over a Republican violates the "lesser of two evils" rule, why would I choose a Republican over a Democrat?
I'll tell you.
For all their faults, their lack of fiscal restraint, failure to close the southern border, rampant spending (did I say that already?), they do at least have a plan for the war on Islamic Fascism.
Cal Thomas said it best in an article today on "Real Clear Politics". "For all of their promises to do a better job of fighting this war, Democrats have no plan, other than retreat. That is the plan the terrorists have for us. Retreat is not in their playbook. The terrorists in Iraq and elsewhere don't speak of timetables for withdrawal or bringing their fighters home in time for Ramadan. They're in it for the long haul. They believe we are not. A victory by Democrats next month will validate their view and encourage them to fight harder."
