Murtha Democrats: Lose the War to Win the Election, Then What?

Democrats (motto: anything to win an election) have no plan to deal with terrorists.  They have to wait until public-opinion pollsters tell them what to do next.

  1. Public opinion polls reflect the mood of the public based on their half-baked information on current or past events. A truly scientific poll would be one in which data and arguments from both sides of an issue are provided, the reader is tested to determine whether he/she did read the information, following which the poll questions are asked. Asking "should we pull out of Iraq?" is the same as asking whether the supergiant star eta Carinae is single or binary. Since socialists want unsuspecting followers and conservatives want informed and educated followers, it is the duty of President Bush and his administration to provide all the information to the public about Iraq to prevent the exploitation of the public by people like John Murtha. Here is a format for a daily news bulletin from an imaginery Free Iraq TV Channel (which the Iraq Govt should fund in USA and Arab countries)that I would like to see:

    Today 480 new Iraqui babies were born.
    Today 230 Iraqi's died from disease and old age. Seventy two of them died in accidents.
    Today the Insurgents murdered 17 Iraquis .
    Today the Iraqui population grew by 233.
    Since the beginning of the insurgency, the free Iraqui population has grown by 87,500. The insurgents seem to be achieving the reverse of victory.
    Today, 3 new schools and 5 medical clinics were opened in the cities of blah, blah, blah.

    The above imaginery but comprehensive report would lead to a completely different public perception of war. The news media, including commentators like Bill O'Reilly, show only broken vehicles and bodies day after day. How many new hospital openings in Iraq have we seen on our TVs? Presenting only part of the truth is equivalent to presenting a big lie. It is the business of the administration to present the entire truth and not just wait for the news media to be fair and square. That is a far better alternative to debating demagogues like John Murtha.

  2. The next administration is going to have quite a clean-up job, not only with the war but with all the other things this administration got wrong and twisted up. We hear about some wonderful things that have been accomplished during its tenure but wait until the curtain is drawn back.

  3. It's time to hit the Collectivists with historical and superior values orientation - in spite of the probability that it will intrude on their apriori chosen lifestyle. Pssst...

    The Old World method of measuring human value was,
    and still is, 'by the group.' Whether tribe, clan, city-state, color, ethnic, or gender, the Old World, ancient and modern, measures by the plural unit. Individuals had and have no value of themselves but only as they were and are part of a collective.

    When Y'shua Jesus died on the cross, the veil of
    the Temple at the Holy of Holies parted from the
    top down. The individual believer in the congrega-
    tion had, for the first time, a face-to-face, one-
    on-one relation with his Creator. The Creator,
    Himself, had validated each individual for the
    first time. Thus, the Individual became the cornerstone for later human value measuring systems: socio-political, philosophical,religious, educational, economic, etc., henceforth and forever.

    Western Civilization, America, English Law, civil
    Rights, the 'democratic' process, etc., all sprang
    from that single event. (Greco-Roman 'democracies'
    were 95% slave throughout their entire histories.)

    Biblical principles are still today the foundation
    under Western Civilization and the American way of

    Many social systems attempt to borrow ideas of
    "democracy" without the basic premise in The Indi-
    vidual. Such a system is only superficially and
    temporarily 'democratic.' The cornerstone of the
    democratic process is The Individual and the
    cornerstone of the value of The Individual is
    Y'shua Jesus! It is not possible to have one with-
    out the other. There is only One Source - there is
    no other.

    It is additionally interesting to note that ALL
    value measuring systems are based on the single
    definitive unit of the system. Ex: Number, Time,
    Distance, Weight, Heat, Money, Angle, Volume, etc.

    Only humanism makes the abusive error of measuring
    human value by the plural unit and attempts to
    build social structures, relations, and institu-
    tions thereon. Such man-made systems can only be
    abusive and oppressive because in reality there
    are only individual persons. Groups or collectives
    are merely convenient verbalizations about indi-
    viduals. They are not Reality.

    I have yet to see a 'group.' All I have ever seen
    are individuals.Have you ever seen a group - or is
    it a verbal convenience? Reality is only in the
    individual person. And, such a validation never
    derived from a human source without the initiative
    of the Creator. (The French Rationalists of the
    18th Century favored the fruit - but rejected the
    branch, tree, and root.)

    Today, wherever Y'shua Jesus is rejected, the
    group or collective is still the basic way of
    measuring human value - or human non-value.

    We thank the Lord God for revealing His validation
    of each individual person. We thank Him for creat-
    ing each person uniquely, in His image, and call-
    ing each one to a courageous ascension by Y'shua
    Jesus, who said, "I AM the Way..."

    Praise the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, and
    His Son of Man, Y'shua Jesus.

    Reference: Exodus 25:30,40 Hebrews 9 Matthew 27:51
    Mark 15:38 Luke 23:45 KJV
