What I've noticed...

I've been surfing Blog Explosion a lot recently and I've noticed that most of the liberal bloggers out there don't get it. I don't know how many blogs I've read that the writer just doesn't understand or even want to understand why it is Bush and the Conservative movement won so soundly. All they seem to want to do is cry in their beer. We've all heard the liberal pundits claiming that the "moral values" most Americans that voted for Bush were expressing was their opposition to gay marriage. If they want to keep deceiving themselves that's fine, however, that's not why the Democrat Party was shunned at the polls.

I understand that most Americans share the same values and want what's best for this country and for their families and those two go hand in hand, they have to. Red state, blue state, what does that really mean anyway....we're all Americans and those of us who voted for the President can't understand why some in the Michael Moore crowd can claim to love this country when all they do is spew lies and hatred with the intention of further dividing this nation.

Those of us who voted for the President understand the war on terror. We understand that Iraq is but a battle in the war on terror. Iraq is not "taking our off the ball" as some argue. Why would Abu Musab al-Zarqawi and his terrorist organization be doing all it could to resist Iraq's independence? I thought liberals were supposed to be for human rights... so why on Earth have they vehemently protested the liberation of over 50 million people?! The people who have benefited most from the liberation of their respective countries is women, are we supposed to believe that women would be better off under their former regimes? Contrary to popular leftist belief WMD's were a reason for our invasion of Iraq but they weren't the only reason. If you read his 2002 Address to the UN , you will understand that fundamental human rights were also, a reason. The analogy of WWII comes to mind. Would today's liberals be in favor of spilling the blood of thousands upon thousands of human beings to put an end to Hitler's Final Solution? After all, Germany was no direct threat to the United States at the time and they didn't attack us, the Japanese did.

The real reason this country has become so divided is because there is a Republican in the White House and the Main Stream Media (MSM) likes nothing better than stirring things up because it sells papers and gets ratings. I don't believe we're red or blue. We're Americans! All we want is to live in peace and raise our families. Just like the people of Iraq and Afghanistan do. Thanks to us and our allies they can begin living life as they choose. It's going to take time, I think people are expecting way too much way too soon....after all America has had well over 200 years to perfect a free Republican form of government and some would argue we still have improvements to make.

This short post ended up being a lot longer than I had intended but I needed to get some of that off of my chest. I guess what I really want is for our country to be united again. We're really not so different, liberals and conservatives...it's time to bury the hatchet and get on with the business of winning this war and putting this whole thing behind us.

Ugh, partisans always make me feel like there's been a open bar, and I'm the DD. It's like listening to drunks argue. Can't people on either side find anything to make them play nice?

In regards to your original post, i am one of those "liberal bloggers" Hopefully i get it. Actually most get it and we realize that the religious right was not solely responsible for the Bush victory. Saying that it was is just an attempt to marginalize the republicans as extremists(may work/ may not). And yes part of the 'values' cited is being anti-gay.
As for Iraq, it is now part of the war on terror. But when we went in Iraq had nothing to do with al Qaeda or terrorists. For one bin Laden was not to fond of Saddam - he saw he as an infidel who only used Islam as a political tool. Secondly, Saddam was a control freak so why would he allow another center of power (bin laden and other extremists) in Iraq?

Actually, E, Iraq was already a haven for terrorists. But of course you listening to nothing but the main stream media probably have not heard of a place called Salman Pak, Iraq's secret terrorist training base just outside of Baghdad. Please go here and read all about it.

Here is another site...please note the line " The Islamic militants trained on the other side of the camp, in an area separated by a small lake, trees and barbed wire. The militants reportedly spent time training, usually in groups of five or six, around the fuselage of the airplane. There were rarely more than 40 or 50 Islamic radicals in the camp at one time."

Do you really beleive Iraq had nothing to do with terrorism before we liberated it?

I am liberal and I am a blogger...so, I guess you might want to put me in the camp you are speaking of.

Unfortunately, this country is divided...and your speech didn't change that. I know that I voted my conscience and my conscience didn't win. I feel the nation and the world is continuing to become more dangerous...and you don't have to believe that, but it doesn't make it that I don't get it.

I am not crying in my beer, far from it. I am just realizing how much work there is ahead of me.

P.S. how did you think that your post would bring the two sides together...to bury the hatchet? Just curious.

The war in Iraq is a struggle for wealth and power. It has nothing to with the war on terrorism.
There was not an insurgency problem, or Al-Qaida affiliates in Iraq until AFTER we invaded them. They are there to fight our occupation, and the formation of a govenrment that they feel is a puppet for us.
Whats worse is Iraq has given the enemy more justification for the hatred they need to recruit with. Every civilian that dies makes for two more terrorists to begin training.
The first major attack was nearly 20 years in the making, and was due to a small skirmish that was not even our war. Now we have arrogantly destroyed Iraq with the facade that somehow the US is safer.
Who will we blame the next big attack on?
