After a whole campaign as a "war hero" ... no Form 180 ... and no Honorable Discharge?

Add the following to the appallingly dishonest efforts of the MSM to push Any Body But Bush (aka John Kerry) into the White House. I have always wondered why a "war hero" would not rush to make his entire record public. This, from the beginning, along with the sheer number of Swift Vets speaking out, led me to question Kerry's Viet Nam claims.

Now, on Election Eve, we find that it appears that Kerry was probably not even honorably discharged. Read Thomas Lipscomb's story for yourself and decide. Thanks to an assist from the Carnivorous Conservative, I saw Kerry's 1971 interview on C-Span which raised the discharge question in my mind. Then, we find that NBC has covered up another Kerry admission about his missing military records. Imagine if Pres. Bush had admitted that portions of his Nat'l Guard records were not public. But here, there is no reaction and no follow-up by NBC or any one else.

Add to this the fact that the media has not released the full OBL tape or reported that he specifically threatened US states that vote for Bush. Think that might be news?

It's an outrage. But what should we expect from those who share Kerry's same nihilistic, leftist view that has situational ethics as its moral bedrock?

We should expect ourselves to get juiced up and get our friends and neighbors and every one we know in swing states to the polls. That's all we should expect.

And we should remember that Kerry is "proud" of all that he said in "The New Soldier" about Viet Nam.

Final "New Soldier" Round-up

Kerry believed and believes that our form of government is not superior to communism or "benevolent dictatorship":
"... I think politically, historically, the one thing that people try to do, that society is structured on as a whole, is an attempt to satisy their felt needs, and you can satisfy those needs with almost any kind of political structure, giving it one name or the other. In this name it is democratic; in others it is communism; in others it is benevolent dictatorship. As long as those needs are satisfied, that structure will exist."
Also, Sen. Kerry, if elected, may very well advocate a rapid pullout from Iraq, as he did from Viet Nam. The reason for such a disasterous recommendation would be that, to Kerry, a pullout would have far less negative consequences than American intervention:
"... The war will continue. So what I'm saying is that yes, there will be some recrimination but far, far less than the 200,000 a year who are murdered [emphasis mine] by the United States of America ..."
Finally, make sure that all voters in your sphere of influence know that Kerry is "proud" of this accusation of our military:
"... [T]hey had personally raped, cut off ears, cut off heads, taped wires from portable telephones to human genitals and turned up the power, cut off limbs, blown up bodies, randomly shot at civilians, razed villages in fashion reminiscent of Genghis Khan, shot cattle and dogs for fun, poisoned food stocks, and generally ravaged the countryside of South Vietnam ..."
For these egregious acts and for Kerry's lack of repentance alone, he is disqualified from serving as Commander-in-Chief.

Stand tall. Get out the vote. Pray. Go Pres. Bush.
