Oh boy! Real progress being made for sure by your traitorous buffoon Nelson. Backstabbing Democrats, sucking our country into the pit of despair. Anyhow, even the state run Syrian media don't like him. What an idiot.
Syria Responds to Senator
I love this quote though:
It said it was strange that some U.S. senators who visited Syria were very "gentle, diplomatic and attentive" while in Syria but immediately after they leave Damascus "they turn upside down and start making up stories and tales that exist only in their fertile imagination."
Well, Hells Bells, what did they expect? It is a Liberal Democrat, betraying his own country, not some honorable spokesperson. I mean, par for the course right? Standard Dem operating procedure... Love that fertile imagination!
What did I receive for my efforts? A emotional appeal, a patriotic piece of prose, at first. Well its interesting at the end, and the appeal to convince based on sentimentality was crafted nicely. However, it seems the tables are upturned, you be the judge:
Yesterday I took a tour of the nation's Capitol, the Old Supreme Court Chamber, where Dred Scott was argued, the Old House Chamber, where Webster uttered 'Liberty and Union, Now and Forever!', where John Quincy Adams, the only President who entered the House AFTER being President, so outraged the slave south by presenting, time and time again, petitions for the abolition of slavery that he was ejected (and then re-elected by Mass.), where Lincoln sat and learned the ropes of representative government. The into the Senate Chamber. Who can count the glorious and wonderful events of that chamber? And the Rotunda, where Presidents have laid In State since Jefferson.
This is a Republic, by God it is! As close to a Democracy as the will and minds and laws of Man can make
And I expect that, as my great-grandfather John Slocum did at Gettysburg, I, and my children, and my grand-children and every generation to come will fight to the death to defend it. All of it. And all of us. Every word of the Constitution is a hard fought bargain struck between ourselves and those who have gone before. In elections, in the courts, on the battlefield and around every dining room table in America.
The quote below, from Edward R. Murrow, was directed at Senator Joseph McCarthy of Wisconsin, member of earlier group of those who have, from time to time, put self-aggrandizement and party above the interests of the Nation. It applies, even more forcefully, to the Bush Administration of today, which willfully and spitefully refuses to change direction despite all evidence, the opinions of the vast majority of the American public, their own Generals in the field, and increasingly, their own party. They are so desperate to hang onto the trappings of power that they are willing to sacrifice our soldiers, our treasure, our national prestige and our essential Constitutional protections.
Edward R. Murrow said: "We must not confuse dissent with disloyalty. We must remember always that accusation is not proof and that conviction depends upon evidence and due process of law. We will not walk in fear, one of another. We will not be driven by fear into an age of unreason, if we dig deep in our history and our doctrine, and remember that we are not descended from fearful men -- not from men who feared to write, to speak, to associate and to defend causes that were, for the moment, unpopular..."
You ought to remember that YOU are descended from a member of the most distinguished group of men in the history of the world; the Signers of the Constitution of the United States of America.
What I remember is that these men fought a revolution against the strongest military of the day based on their conviction of freedom. They won. In the face of complete defeat, with great loss, they stayed the course. My first beef with your analogy is the lack of honesty concerning the actual state of Middle East conflict. "Despite all evidence" and "vast majority" are completely wrong. You would wish that this were the case, and your friends in the liberal establishment media will try their best to make it so, but objectivity is not one of your tools. Oh, before that, if anyone has put self-aggrandizement and party above our Nation its your simian Liberal Democratic Leadership.
Nice tape released today from Al Zawaheri, claiming that Democrats should be meeting with him to organize Americas withdraw. Ah, another sign of how your party is really perceived in the world, traitors! If your perception of the terrorist pigs was correct, wouldn't they be supporting any republican? I mean, if American troops in Iraq are really creating more terrorist, doesn't that help their cause? But no, they want us out. Why? Could you figure this one out?
As for Ed and the quote, what is the unpopular cause? Is not freedom in Iraq become the unpopular cause? Has not the mainstream liberal media been living in fear for the last six years? Fear and hate have driven liberals to actually confuse dissent and disloyalty. They have become disloyal, and end up walking in fear of their fellow countrymen. Fear has driven reason out of the liberal mind, emotion rules the direction of liberal thought.
