To The Telegram,

Have any Democrats talked to a soldier who has come back from Iraq? Apparently they haven't!

I have talked to many, and they all have said that the Iraqi people are very appreciative of our effort, progress is being made all the time and its not nearly as dangerous as our media makes it out to be. They are shocked by the way Democrats and the mainstream media relay information to the American people. Where does all this misinformation come from? Liberals deep in the heart of the Democratic party and all through the mainstream media, that's where!

This latest "troop surge" in Iraq is working. The generals that came up with this plan knew that it had a good chance in succeeding, and it is! My only thought is, why didn't we do this a couple years earlier?

Why do Democrats want to surrender to the terrorists? Why do they insist on retreating in a war that we can easily win? Surrendering to terrorists will not only greatly reduce the stability in the world, but open us up to another attack like 9/11. Iraq will become a new terrorist state, run by al-Qaida. Have we been attacked again since 9/11? No. There can be no other conclusion except President George W. Bush and our troops have been doing their job with honor and great success keeping all of us safe by fighting the War on Terror all over the world, including Iraq and not here in this country. Don't forget!

Democrats have been relentlessly attacking President Bush long before the war came to Iraq. They would sacrifice our nations safety and stability in order to get back at him for defeating Al Gore in 2000.

Yes, to the Democrats, political power is more important than national defense against terror. You cannot support the troops and be against the War on Terror in Iraq. This nonsense hurts our troops -- at least the one's that pay attention to the liberal rantings everyday. Most ignore the stupidity. Impeachment talk? Give me a break! Our President was presented with the same information as Democrats in 2002.

Democrats and Republicans alike voted to extend the War to Iraq. I am proud of the job that our troops are doing in the War on Terror and very appreciative of the job that our President has done keeping us safe since 9/11.

Have you noticed all the new tax proposals by Congress and our local liberal politicians? Democrats can't help but spend, spend, spend.

Tell your local politician to cut taxes for once. Tell them that you want the President's tax cuts permanent. Stop raising taxes. Watch the papers and the news. New tax revenue is being planned on all levels of the Democratic party. Vote for a Conservative candidate the next election. Keep our country safe and reduce taxes.
