The Re-election of President Bush



The elections are over and President Bush has been re-elected.

It matters not who we cast our vote for, it matters not whether our personal preference for president was defeated or was the victor. It matters not that we are Republicans or Democrats. Not any longer. What is most significant now is that we are all Americans, and that we support the President of the United States. He has a most challenging job ahead.

I will not share with you, which candidate I cast my vote for. It's unimportant at this point. It is vital, for our safety and that of this country that we respect and back up this man who holds the future and well being of this country in his hands.

And lets not forget for one second, our American soldiers in Iraq, who are in continual grave jeopardy, fighting and dying for each and every one of us.

If Kerry had prevailed, I would have expressed an exact attitude for him, too. But, Bush won the elections; therefore, my allegiance will always be with President Bush. There are many issues I do not agree with Bush. It would be impossible for me to agree on every one of his beliefs. After all, I do have a mind of my own. I am against his strong stance for the death penalty. I am inflatable and unwaveringly against it. Just because we differ on this topic and a few more, does not mean I will oppose all his beliefs and decisions. After all, he is our President, and his intelligence and wisdom greatly surpass my own.

Yesterday, I was either a Republican or a Democrat. Today I am an American. If we permit ourselves to be a divided nation, then the enemy will surely obliterate us.

Although, I will not get into a political discussion for the time being, I do welcome your views.

I must respectfully disagree with the notion that our safety is served by backing the actions of President Bush because I do not believe that he will serve to make the country more secure. There do not seem to be any other viable options at this time though.

You're welcome. For better or worse at least 2004-2006 will see the Bush Administration act with more freedom than any other part of his administration excluding the period immediately after 9/11. It will be interesting to see how he will use this opportunity.

I am SUCH a child of the 60's and 70's.

While I respect the office of president itself..there is NOTHING that will ever allow for force me to honor and respect the man who holds it, especially if he's a warmongering murderer of innocents.

We once had a country where the office and man were one. Sometimes the office made the mad, sometimes the man made the office.

Bush senior corrupted that office, and his son has done far, far worse.

I appreciate your sentiments, but put simply Bush is incapable of uniting this country. His politics are based on fear, hatred, misinformation, and encouraging and exacerbating divisions within the country. They are not the kind of politics that can be used to unite the country.

The only time the country was united during Bush's first term was after 9-11 and that had nothing to do with Bush as president, but with the actions of al-Qaida. What he did with the unity al-Qaida created will prevent many in this country from ever trusting him or blindly uniting behind him again.

On the flip side, I do not believe Kerry could have united the country either. If Kerry had been elected we would have seen a replay of the Clinton-era campaigns of independent counsels, special prosecutors and congressional hearings designed to limit and bring down a presidency.

Bush won the election, but he will never be able to unite this country. He himself has made sure of that.

And I appreciate reading yours, Dewayne; very thought provoking.

It always makes me happy to see you here. I realize there's nothing I can say to change your views, nor would I try. The very breath we take, is in the hands of President Bush. I'd hate to be in his shoes and often times thank the gods for making me an insignifant peon, whose only worry is to make enough money to feed, cloth and house myself, as well as all of my pets.

I took Mickey and Jewely to the doggy beauty shop today because I made a couple of good sales through my website. I will be posting in my journal the funny thing that happened there.

What I'm trying to convey is, that we as Americans must continue to live our lives in the best way we can, and leave the ugly decisions to our President. When I go to bed tonight, I will fall fast asleep. President Bush will not. He will go to bed, carrying the weight of the world on his shoulders. Let us pray for him, that God will help him make the decisions he will have to make for the next four years. Lets try to have a little faith in him. We have to, or humanity will come to an end.

Thank you Dewayne, for taking the time to express your feelings. My respect for you is greater than ever.
Hugs!

I cannot in all good conscience support Bush because I have disagreed with him on every issue that I hold dear. I love my country and would do anything to make it better. I support our troops because I realize they are doing their job and have no choice. I come from a family of veterans, including a decorated WWII vet and a Vietnam vet, and I'm married to one so I have nothing but the utmost respect for our people in uniform. I pray that we do not lose more of our people in an unneccessary war though I know that's impossible.

Although, we do not see eye to eye on the topic of Bush, I hold the utmost respect for your views. I know the love you have for this country, there's no denying that. And one things for sure, we both fear for the lives of our soldiers.

I love you my sexy friend, and I hope and pray that all of our soldiers somehow come out of it alive. My prayers will be that you and your husband will, in the future years, have many babies and someday celebrate your golden anniversary!
Hugs!

And lets not forget for one second, our American soldiers in Iraq, who are in continual grave jeopardy, fighting and dying for each and every one of us.

Having served in the military during the Viet Nam conflict, I really do appreciate that the climate now is that even if you disagree with us being in Iraq, the individual service members are still respected.

Oh, Garzan, the apple of my eye! Vietnam...no wonder I've liked you so much from the start. You're one of my American heroes. When I say things like this, I believe it with all my heart and soul, 'cause it takes a special kind of person to serve their country.

I also come from a family of veterans - Army to be exact. My dad and 3 uncles served during the Vietnam War, family members served during WWII, and I have a brother in the Army who has made it a career.

As for President Bush, I pray God gives him the knowledge and wisdom to carry on a job to the best of his ability. I have all the faith in this man and I hope he someday proves himself not only to half of the world, but to all of it.

I'll support the man where I can, although I loathe practically every one of his policies. Unity and cooperation is all well and good, but I feel as though at some points there is simply an unbridgeable divide. With many of the issues on the Republican agendas I feel like I'm trying to compromise with someone who thinks the world is flat - there's just no mutually satisfying middle ground.
The war in Iraq I do not support, although I have high regard for our troops over there. I believe that even in a war fought for reasons I don't agree with it takes a measure of bravery and integrity just to be over there.
To everyone who doesn't like Bush being re-elected, I would say to always voice your opinion and compromise where it seems best, but don't forget your own views and feelings. And whoever it was who quoted Thomas Jefferson, thank you - sometimes I feel as though people need reminding that disagreeing with our government isn't unpatriotic.

I agree with you that disagreement with government is NOT unpatriotic, unless one lives in a fascist regime where you get persecuted or even killed for expressing your point of view.

To sin by silence when they should protest makes cowards of men.
-Abraham Lincoln

I also am not in agreement with some of President Bush's attitudes, such as the death penalty. But, I woke up one morning and found that he had been re-elected, therefore, I shall remain dedicated to him.

Thank you; I appreciate the time you have taken to express your concerns. Believe me, I do understand.

Thomas Jefferson once wrote that "dissent is the highest form of patriotism," so I think those of us who disagree with Bush's policies should keep on dissenting.

Only in America, do we, the people, have the freedom of dissention without the fear of being escorted to some dungeon. I'll say it once and I'll say it again, America, what a wonderful place to live in!

I will not launch into a tirade here of what others say, they have their right to say what they want. I will say that Playirl has made a very significant post, and very well said.
