FROM THE EDITOR
Democrats Are Pro War
by JR Dieckmann
 
Absolutely they are. The problem is, they have chosen the wrong enemies. Instead of supporting war against Islamofascism, crime, and socialism in America, they have declared war on prosperity and success, war on our troops fighting in Iraq, and war on the sun and Earth's natural climate. These are the three principle issues that all three leading Democrat candidates for president are campaigning on.
 
War on prosperity: All three leading Democrats want to raise your taxes. They tell you it's a tax hike on the "rich" but their definition of "the rich" is anyone with an income above mid middle class and anyone else who shows a reasonable profit from success in business. Such tax hikes are not confined to only those who would pay them, but will trickle down to the lowest common denominator, the consumer. So when Democrats say they want to raise taxes on the rich, what they are actually saying is that they will raise taxes on you and everyone else. But it's not limited to just income tax. Already the Democrat controlled Congress is trying to raise cigarette and gasoline taxes and many other taxes that do not apply only to "the rich." There is a list a mile long of federal taxes that effect everyone so don't think you're going to escape tax hikes just because you're in the lower half of wage earners.
 
War on the Troops: No need for any lengthy explanation on this one. We all know how Democrats in Congress as well as those running for president have been doing everything they can to prevent the U.S. military from seeing success in Iraq. They tied the hands of our fighting troops for years until Gen. David Petraeus took command of "the surge" and got tough with insurgents and foreign al Qaeda fighters. But the Dems war on the troops wasn't confined only to the battlefield, they also have tried to prevent military intelligence officers and CIA agents from conducting any useful interrogations of captured suspects at Guantanamo and other prison camps. Then with their anti-American rhetoric and propaganda heard around the globe, have encouraged even more Islamics to join the jihad against America and the west resulting in the death of more American troops.
 
War on the sun and Earth's climate: All three leading Democrat candidates, no, make that all Democrat candidates for president have fallen for the greatest hoax since the Piltdown man, "man made global warming" and intend to redistribute the wealth to fight it. They all profess that by lowering the standard of living in America while raising the standard of living in 3rd world countries, we can control the weather. Now I ask you, is anyone who is foolish enough to believe that, smart enough to lead the free world?
 
Carbon dioxide is not a hazardous substance in spite of what the EPA says. It is a necessary part of our atmosphere. Without CO2 plants could not grow and that includes our food. Without CO2 there could be no life on Earth. In addition, there is no proof that CO2 contributes to a "green house effect" on a global scale. Geological records and ice core samples prove that CO2 levels in the atmosphere trail rises in global temperature, not lead them. And what's more, the current levels of CO2 in our atmosphere are a mere .038% of the total atmospheric gasses. Since the 1970s, vehicle emissions of CO2 have been reduced by 90%.
 
But there has been a 30% increase in CO2 over the past 100 years. If records are accurate then that is true. But we must put it in perspective. Raymond S. Kraft explained it this way: The year is 1900 and I have $10,000. I give you $3.00. Now you have $3 and I have $9,997. Each year for the next 100 years I give you 1c. The year is now 2000. You have $4.00 and I still have $9,996. This is exactly the same ratio we are talking about with the 30% increase of CO2 in our atmosphere. It's hardly worth destroying the American way of life over. But it does fool a lot of people into supporting the Democrat socialist agenda.
 
So there you have it. Proof positive that Democrats are pro war. Just ask any of the leading Democrat candidates and they will tell you that the leading issues of their campaign are war on prosperity, war on our troops, and war on the sun and Earths climate.
 
On the other side
 
Meanwhile, on the Republican side we have a number of candidates all trying to outdo each other to show that they are more conservative than the other guy.  Did they learn a lesson from the 2006 congressional election?  Perhaps they did but if you can believe the polls, apparently the majority of conservative Republicans didn't.  Otherwise how can we explain why the two best conservative candidates, Duncan Hunter and Fred Thompson are not leading in the polls but instead we show the more liberal of the Republican candidate occupying the top spots. 
 
In 2005, when President Bush tried to appoint a less than conservative candidate, Harriet Miers, to the Supreme Court, conservatives rose up and demanded the nomination be withdrawn.  In 2007 when Congress tried to pass an amnesty bill for illegal aliens, conservatives rose up and defeated that bill.  So why now are not conservatives rising up and speaking out against the liberal Republican candidates now leading the polls for the next president of the United States?  Are we being misled by the media polls, or are a majority of Republican just so uninformed about who their candidates really are?  The answer will be known soon enough when we see the results of the primary elections.
