Zell Miller Delivers One Helluva Speech!

If you did not hear senator Zell Miller's speech at the RNC last night, you missed the best speech of either of the conventions. He made several points that have rarely been brought up during this election and the fact that these issues were brought up by a Democrat makes things even more interesting.

First, Zell listed the myriad of military expenditures that John Kerry had voted against, and then brilliantly gave examples of how each one of these items had been used to defend people both at home (after 9/11) and abroad. Placing these two things side by side illustrates the sharp contrast between who John Kerry wants you to think he is (war hero, purple hearts, etc.) and who he really is (anti-military spending cuts).

Zell then culminated this list of defense cuts by saying something to the effect that after all of these cuts John Kerry is asking us to make him commander in chief of the armed forces. He then quipped, "Armed with what? Spitballs!" This is not only a great zinger, it forces people to think about how ridiculous it is for a man to spend his life cutting the military budget and then ask the American people to place him in charge of the military at a time when defense of our nation is paramount!

Third, he not only blasted John Kerry, he blasted all Democrats for selling out to the far left liberal whacko's of the party. Those who would denounce the uncivilized nature of war via countless UN resolutions while the world falls into ruin at the hands of Islamic lunatics. When Muslim terrorists launched their attack on 9/11 they forever changed the posture of this nation. We were jerked from our collective slouched, half asleep position and forced to snap-to and square away. Like it or not, we are now a nation defending itself against an unseen enemy with no central national affiliation. In truth, this is a religious war waged by Muslim terrorists on the entire world (the USA is merely the biggest target). Ignoring this threat by focusing on the economy or health care or gay marriage will not make it go away. If we do not take action now, we will be faced with threats we may not be able to manage in the future. Zell made a point that only a Democrat could make and not be called partisan. His comment was that at this stage in our nation's history, we need statesmen, not politicians. There are few if any statesmen (outside of Zell) left in the Democrat party as evidenced by the lack of bipartisanship on the issue of defending our country. Instead of putting political differences aside to defend the nation (not to mention the rest of the free world), the leaders of the Democrat party have sought to use the war on terror as a political football to serve their own interests. This, more than anything else, proves that the leaders of the Democrat party don't care about you, or me, or the poor, or gays, or blacks, or immigrants, or education, or the economy, or the snail darter, or any of the people who died on 9/11, or any of the soldiers defending freedom around the globe. All these politicians care about is increasing their own sphere of influence for their own benefit and the rest of the world can go to hell.

Please, Please, Please save our nation from the self serving Democrat politicians and their hoards of "useful idiot" supporters. VOTE REPUBLICAN.
