A Commander in Chief who betrayed his comrades at arms? - Not in your life.
By Pete Martinez
The gauntlet has been thrown at the feet of presidential aspirant John Kerry
by the Republican Party - this election is about the security of the United
Sates and the choice faced by Americans is who better to lead during this war
against terrorism - Bush or Kerry. All other issues pale in comparison to the
danger the nation faces by a world wide sect of mad dogs bent on the destruction
of the United States and indeed much of the world. 9/11 was not the making of
the United States but it must now end it with a resounding victory or the
nation as we know it will perish - no in betweens, no maybes, not quizas. Either
we win or we lose.
Ultranationalism and Republicanism
By Beto Segovia
(sic)…At the Olympics when we heard the chant "USA" the majority of the vocal
spectators were manifesting their support of the American athletes and
expressing their pride in being American. The chant was not a political statement.
It was not the expression of supremacy or a show of might and dominance…
However, at the GOP convention, the chant became the opposite of the Olympics. It
became the rallying cry of the Christian Right dominated Republican Party. It
became the expression of the zealot ultranationalist.
