"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~

Joe Lieberman and The Left-Wing Base

Three terms in the Senate, a national candidate for Vice-President, a hawk who votes his conscience. Joe Lieberman (D-CT) may be the only responsible and honest Democrat remaining and since his party is quietly dumping him he may become an Independent candidate for Senate in this falls election.
I could only wish the moderate Mr. Lieberman would choose joining the Republican party as his views are consistently moderate to conservative, he certainly would be more welcome than Lincoln Chaffee, Olympia Snowe and George Voinovich who vote and act as if they belong with the liberals.
Joe Lieberman is a man of his own convictions, he is principled and doesn't change his views to satisfy a base he finds disagreement with. If nothing else Mr. Lieberman is honorable.
The Democrats are sending a clear message in their treatment of Mr. Lieberman and they're telling us the party is moving further and further left. Standing up for the war on terror is costing Lieberman support of his party. The left has no use for anything that may resemble homeland security.
Hollywood, Cindy Sheehan, DailyKos and are now the face of the Democratic party. They are the "anti-war" party, but more than that, they are the anti-security party. Fighting terrorism is a foreign concept to the left, not as an offensive strategy but as a strategy of "cut and run."
The troops here and across the world are fighting a global war on terror. The war reached our shores on September the 11th, 2001. The terrorists who attacked us -- and the terrorists we face -- murder in the name of a totalitarian ideology that hates freedom, rejects tolerance, and despises all dissent. Their aim is to remake the Middle East in their own grim image of tyranny and oppression -- by toppling governments, by driving us out of the region, and by exporting terror. ~President George W. Bush speaking at Ft. Bragg on July 4th.
The left and anti-Lieberman forces reject our current foreign policy and design to fight terrorism. The left-wing base is an insult to the men and women in uniform as they worry about the rights of our enemy and openly protest the fight to secure our nation. They support the medias self-proclaimed right to print classified data, but never call for the people leaking this information to be brought to justice.
The left has no real agenda of substance, no economic plan other than to raise taxes and set spending earmarks in unlimited fashion. Many of today's Republicans have also lost their way and change their positions to satisfy their base and reject conservative positions.
Joe Lieberman has the resolve to speak his mind and not follow a misguided group when his philosophy doesn't match a weak mindset of the left. Instead of changing his position, Mr. Lieberman is prepared to change his political party. Joe Lieberman has intestinal fortitude and independence, which will continue to serve America well.

The Russians only get on the terror ball when it directly effects them.'

If it were to side with the Americans, forget it.

I can look into Putin's eyes and see his soul. It's not a pretty picture. Only one of deceit and lies.

He's still KGB!
