Elections and politics with a Conservative bent. If you're a political junkie, get your fix here!

Saturday, September 10th, 2005

On September 11, 2001, the Democrats were still pushing the claim that George W. Bush was not really President by right, and would not accomplish anything of significance in his office. This, even though the Democrats had tried to deny the votes of thousands of U.S. servicemen, and had attempted to subvert the Constitutions of Florida and the United States in opposing the results of the election.

RINO Jim Jeffords (Undecided) deserted the GOP in (vain) hopes of attracting Democrat support for his bills and ambition, throwing control of the U.S. Senate back to the Left.

The government of China continued to press a political advantage caused by its interception of a U.S. Navy plane over International waters in the early part of the year.

The bombing of the U.S.S. Cole, like the bombings of two U.S. Embassies, had received little overt official attention and no apparent response.

Then less than two dozen men hijacked four commercial airliners and killed around three thousand Americans, for the offense of being Americans.

The mastermind, Osama bin Laden, is either dead on continuing a multi-year campaign to discover the merits of living in caves throughout the Middle East, hoping his life won’t end in a well-deserved condemnation, especially now that six separate Muslim Imams have issued fatwas justifying his death as an apostate.

Al Qaeda has gone from an organization capable of attacking military units and changing the policies of governments, to a group unable to coordinate attacks beyond the level of ordinary gangs.

The Taliban has been thrown out of control in Afghanistan, and most of their deadership is dead, and most of the survivors are in prison.

Saddam Hussein has been deposed, found hiding in a hole, arrested, arraigned, and has confessed to the murder or thousands of innocents.

The Baath party has ceased to exist in Iraq.

Afghanistan and Iraq have held free elections.

On the encouragement from President Bush, and with mobs holding signs and banners with his name and picture, crowds of Lebanese have shamed Syrian troops into leaving Lebanon.

In fear of an Operation Libya Freedom, Moamar Qaddafi has renounced his WMD programs and promised to respect the border with Chad.

The Democrats have lost seats in both houses of Congress ever since Bush took office.

Thousands of Americans died on September 11. But not in vain. They are remembered, and the memory of their loss has fed the birth of new hope in countless places.
