 Why aren't you breaking down the door of every newsroom in town demanding the media report, the truth , for a change? Kerry proposed canceling the Patriot missile system in 1984. Voted against funding the Patriot system at least twice. Voted against funding the Bradley Fighting Vehicle at least five times. Voted against funding the B-2 bomber at least 17 times. Voted against funding the F-18 fighter at least eight times. Voted to decrease overall defense spending at least 38 times. And it's Bush who left the military "ill-equipped"?

 3. Kerry's Iraq solution. It's a doozy: Turn military control over to NATO and overall control over to the United Nations -- except NATO doesn't have troops available and the U.N. wants nothing to do with Iraq. Credit NBC's Tim Russert for pointing this out. But where in blazes are you? Why aren't you standing on every rooftop exposing this man's utter incompetence?

 4. Taxes. How does Kerry have the audacity to propose a "Contract with America's Middle Class" to cut taxes? Easy. He knows he can claim anything and outlets like the New York Times will still call him a "fiscal conservative." So where are you? Are you the party of fiscal conservatism? How hard is it to make it a national issue that this man, who has supported some 350 different tax hikes, is a fiscal fraud? Have any of you picked up a phone to point this out to the scribes at the Times? Or anywhere else?

 5. Campaign Finance Reform. For years the leftist press dutifully echoed the Democratic line: America has been corrupted by greedy, rich Republican business tycoons out to buy elections. Campaign Finance Reform would end it. Now that it's law, what happened? Greedy, rich Democratic business tycoons like George Soros and Peter Lewis are plowing tens of millions of dollars into ultra-left "527" organizations attempting to defeat George Bush. MoveOn.org has just announced plans to raise another $50 million toward this end. Just how hard is it to challenge Kerry to denounce and disassociate himself from these hypocrites? Why aren't you publicly demanding that all those press types who covered alleged Republican corruption now cover the very real Democratic corruption taking place right under their noses?

 On and on it goes. A day doesn't go by wherein there isn't a golden opportunity not only to show America what the Left's philosophical agenda truly is but also, by distinction, how different it is from yours.

 Assuming you have one.
