Quote Of The Day: Is The American Ballot Box Hitler’s Secret Weapon
In his latest column, David Broder looks back on the election and 1944 and finds this quote from Democratic Senator Samuel Jackson of Indiana
“How many battleships would a Democratic defeat be worth to Tojo? How many Nazi legions would it be worth to Hitler? …We must not allow the American ballot box to be made Hitler’s secret weapon.”
And that was from a time when BOTH PARTIES were serious about defending America. Today, Republicans take stopping terrorism seriously while many Democrats only seem to be able to get fired up about using the military to prop up left-wing dictators masquerading as popularly elected leaders like Jean-Bertrand Aristide. Sadly, tragically, defending America really has become a partisan issue.
However, since it’s a partisan issue, it’s something that I think Americans need to consider when they go to the ballot box in November.
So I say to all Americans, “Can we allow our ballot box to become Osama Bin Laden’s secret weapon? Can we afford to give Syria, Iran, & North Korea the candidate they most assuredly want as President? How can we in good conscience put a man like John Kerry into the White House when we know the danger our country faces?”
Call that “brutal,” “exploitive,” or “mean” if you like, but I’d rather be correct than polite in this situation. We absolutely cannot risk giving the terrorist groups of global reach and the rogue states that support them a 4 year breather while John Kerry plays pattycake with Kofi Annan & a bunch of international lawyers. This is serious business with serious consequences — too serious to risk putting a man in office who is more concerned what Old Europe thinks than defending America from terrorists.
