12 days and a wakeup !!

Posted in Politics, Truth by simpletruthiness on October 22, 2008

12 days can be an eternity. Every service member remembers that old cadence. You know the one I mean. 6 more weeks And I’ll be through. Then you insert your favorite activities(ok Drill’s favorite mockeries). Now we should all be singing 12 more days and we’ll be through.I remember when 12 days was a really long time. In politics it is an eternity.The same way you need to run hard at the end no matter how bad you want to half step,that is what we need to do now. We need to keep it up, don’t let off for a second. When you sense the KO coming you don’t stop swinging.

We need to come out for Senator Obama. General Powell  went against his party and was basically ostracized instantly. The judgment and intelligence of man who rose form a public school ROTC program to become Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of staff was called into question. Just as unlikely a life as coming from a broken family on public assistance to the presidency.What does he know? Powell and Obama both represent the best in America. The America every service member puts on the uniform for.

No one puts their hand up to swear to defend the privileged and the few, those lucky enough to be born into a dynasty. We swear to defend the Constitution against all enemies foreign and domestic. The constitution has been under assault for the last eight years from domestic enemies. Our oath compels us to defend America’s guiding document and the ideals it represents. The ideal that gives the son of Jamaican immigrants the chance to raise up and become something. No one can say to them I am sorry your daddy didn’t wear four stars so you are out of luck. They represent the best of America. That which we should all aspire too. I am hoping everyone can find it in themselves to volunteer during 12 days that remain. We don’t want to wake up on Nov 5th and find that we have failed our best ideals. We don’t want to wake up to find that our that children will not have the same opportunities that General Powell and Senator Obama had or that we have had.  The constitution cannot withstand another four years of constant attack. There is no time but now. Without this victory there is no future. GO VOLUNTEER NOW!! VOTE!!
