I admire President Bush because he stands for what he
believes and is proud to be just what he is -- a conservative
He stands in stark contrast to many of my own Democratic
heroes, including Bill Clinton and the entire Democratic
Congress, that have been extremely quiet as of late. In his
short term as our 43rd President, Bush has managed to
push through one of the most conservative agendas in history.
On his first day of office he took federal money away from
Planned Parenthood. He jeopardizes the security of Medicare and
Social Security with his "make the rich, richer"
tax-cuts. He threatens the survival of our natural resources to
appease Big Business and increase corporate profits. The future
of the Public School system is being threatened by his elitist
mentality of what is fair for all children. And he wants to
spend all our money on the military when ours is already bigger
than the next twelve countries in the world put together.
He coerced the American voters to think he was the great
unifier, when in reality he canít even unite his own party.
There is no doubt about it, President George W. Bush is an
extreme, hard-core conservative. But at least he has taken a
stand for what he believes.
His actions from the beginning of his political career have
screamed conservatism, but the American people allowed
themselves to be duped by this bumbling, inarticulate
Maybe heís not as stupid as he wants us to think. He seemed
almost puppy-dog eyed in his inability to grasp numbers of the
economy or to pronounce those big foreign words that many of us
have trouble saying. No, President Bush is not a stupid puppet.
He is a calculating, manipulating, strategist who has done
exactly what he has had to do in order to fool the American
people into thinking he is a uniter. Now that he has the
absolute power to do what he wants he will set in motion the
greatest conservative push our county has ever seen.
George W. Bush is not "in the middle,"
"center-left," or "center-right." He is
certainly not an Independent. He doesnít vote for bills or
people because he "likes what they have to say regardless
of their party affiliation." He is narrow-mindedly
conservative. He is a staunch, ultra, right-wing conservative
who thinks that liberals are a threat to the cushy lifestyle of
the rich men in this country.
Well, for once he is right, and it is time that we Liberals
stop playing the Republican game of spreading propaganda that
scares people. We believe that the Left represents the moral
side of every issue and that everyone deserves the right to
succeed. We represent the population of this county that is more
tolerant, more understanding, and more able to think with our
hearts and our brains. We are the ones that are motivated by
fairness, freedom, and equality, and not greed, power, and money
like most Republicans. But at least President Bush is finally
showing his true colors. And now that Democrats control
one house of Congress it is time that the liberal leaders take
as firm a stand.
It has been at least eight years that the Liberals have been
running from the left towards center and it is time to stand up
for what we truly believe, not just what we think will gain
votes. It is up to us to educate the voting public so they
understand that we are the ones that stand for morality and for
what is right.
