"Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free....... ~Ronald Reagan~

Democratic Love-In

Democrats just want to be loved. That was the dominant theme of the coalition of the needy confab that desended on Boston last week. One can't accurately gauge how many lives were saved abroad because of President Bush's pre-emptive policies aimed at draining the terrorist swamp in the Middle East or by tough new domestic security actions generated by the Patriot Act here at home. And while there is nothing we can do to make the world community "like" us more, despite Democrats' fondest hopes, I do know this administration's actions have generated a healthy dose of respect for the resolve of America in fighting terrorism among our enemies. Trying to please people and wanting to be liked often gets adolescents in trouble. I understand my kids' desire to act in a way that boosts their popularity, but I expect more from the person who wants to lead this country. The unrealistic prescription peddled by Democrats is unwise, unrealistic and unsafe for our national security.
