What follows is the truth, and if you have any sense left, you will consider what I have to say with your hackles down and your nostrils keenly sensitized to the odor that surrounds the lying, envious, power-lusting democrats who have had their way with you. Yes, you should indeed feel as if you have been drugged and sodomized, because that is not far off the mark from what they have done to this nation.

Truth #1: There has never been a war that “feels right.” War is hell, and the day we find ourselves in a war that we “want” to be in, is a day I never want to see.

Truth #2: There has never been a war that has not required sons, daughters, nephews, nieces, mothers, fathers, co-workers, friends, and neighbors to be in danger of dying or being horribly wounded. The fact that we all know someone who has been to Iraq once or twice or three times is not a reason to say that we should not be there, or that we should never have gone in the first place.

Truth #3: President Bush did not invent war. America has engaged in twelve conflicts since 1775 that could be recognized by the average citizen as a “war.” In that time, America has lost 656,041 military personnel in battle. Another 15,267 have died in-theater, but due to circumstances other than battle. Some 525,930 died while serving, but not in-theater. There have been 1,498,930 military personnel that have suffered non-mortal wounds. As painful and heartbreaking as it is, the Iraq/Afghanistan actions have been undertaken with an astoundingly low number of casualties, both dead and wounded.

Truth #4: Our actions in Iraq have caused a severe disruption to Osama bin-Laden’s al-Qaeda terror network, and their ability to organize and carry out more attacks on the United States and Israel. The war on terror cannot be fought and/or won in Afghanistan. Killing Osama bin-Laden would be gratifying, but would have little effect on ending the threat of continued terrorism aimed at Americans.

Are you enamored by the thought of a President Obama, or a President Hillary Clinton? Have you considered that both are committed to unencumbered abortion on demand? Have you been listening to the conversations, regarding the realities of abortion?

The Supreme Court upheld some state decisions to curtail the practice of partial birth abortion procedures. You know, of course, that in this procedure a baby is completely delivered (feet first) except for his or her head. Then the doctor places the point of his scissors at the base of the baby’s skull, and stabs a hole into the child’s skull. Finally, the suction tube is used to remove the baby’s brain, causing the head to “deflate.”

Barack had this to say (found on Obama’s campaign website) following the Supreme Court’s decision: “I strongly disagree with today’s Supreme Court ruling, which dramatically departs from previous precedents safeguarding the health of pregnant women. As Justice Ginsburg emphasized in her dissenting opinion, this ruling signals an alarming willingness on the part of the conservative majority to disregard its prior rulings respecting a woman’s medical concerns and the very personal decisions between a doctor and patient. I am extremely concerned that this ruling will embolden state legislatures to enact further measures to restrict a woman's right to choose, and that the conservative Supreme Court justices will look for other opportunities to erode Roe v. Wade, which is established federal law and a matter of equal rights for women.”

Did you know that Hillary Clinton believes that Barack Obama is not “pro-abortion” enough, and that if Barack Obama is elected, abortion will be at risk in America? Does this settle okay with you, in your gut, as you visualize a perfectly formed baby, lying in ragged pieces on a stainless steel tray? You understand, don’t you, that this happens at the Planned Parenthood clinic down the street from your home, several times a day. Indeed, many early abortions result in bloody blobs of tissue in a jar, but until the moment they were vacuumed out of their mother’s womb, they were boys and girls.

As you curse the “F……” President Bush for making soldiers die in Iraq, and as you caucus in glee for Obama or Clinton because they will “end the suffering”, please note the following important numbers: Since the Revolutionary War through September of 2006, (about 230 years) a total of 2,693,128 American military men and women have been killed or have been non-mortally wounded. Since the Roe v. Wade decision in 1973, (about 33 years) there have been more than 48,000,000 children killed by legal abortion procedures in the United States.

Let me spell that out for you, just to make sure the warm fuzzies you have for Obama and Clinton get a firm grip on your guts. That was Forty-eight Million children that have been killed in the last 33 years. Many of them were fully formed and felt the agony of dismemberment (claims of no pain are not factual, and in fact, pain may actually be heightened due to the immature nervous systems).

Those terminated by partial birth procedures, medically known as: intact dilation and extraction (also referred to as IDX and intrauterine cranial decompression) and dilation and evacuation (D&E), had the sensation on their little feet of a Doctor’s tender touch, just prior to the jolt of having a surgical instrument jammed into the back of their little heads.

Think it through again… won’t you please?
