I personally know how I will vote. That wouldn't change.
Man, typing this is gonna hurt.
how I was going to vote, but between this and proposing constitutional amendments that seek to limit rights, I just don't know anymore. There is no way I'd ever vote for Kerry. But, if this is true and the administration tries to put some kind of procedure in place to postpone elections, then I'm done. Maybe I'll vote Libertarian, or maybe I just won't vote at all.
From the article posted by Gwenith:
"The disclosure comes only a few days after U.S. authorities said they believe that al-Qaeda is planning a "large-scale" attack in the USA aimed at disrupting the presidential campaign and November elections."
Good thinking. Let's prevent a terrorist organization from disrupting the elections by pre-emptively disrupting them ourselves. At the very least, you can add Ridge to my list of people Bush needs to dump.
Folks, we are in a war on terrorism, and getting ready to have an election. That's hardly anything new in our experience. We held a general election in 1944, in the midst of fighting the Nazi's and the Japanese. Both were far better equipped and armed to disrupt elections than Al Qaeda ever thought of being. We held general elections during the Korean war, during the Vietnam War. In fact in every war that lasted long enough for a general election to come around, we held it. But let OBL shake his fist at us, and we start looking at ways to postpone the election. God, I hope this is in error.
This is NOT the way to fight terrorism. You don't do it by changing who you are at a fundamental level. This isn't a football game they are talking about postponing. And we aren't a banana republic, where the incumbent can postpone the election because things aren't going well. We don't run. We don't hide. We don't cower in corners.
Damn, whatever happened to our courage?
