Dear Mr Kalb and Fellow Readers,
We are fighting a retreat based on timid leadership in legislatures and in Websites. The liberal Senate and the nearly liberal House are nearly always proposing amnesty etc. The House might or might not hold firm in refusing to compromise on enforcement only, but do not count on it for an instant. And what would be such a â€œsuccessâ€? Defensive action.
Why do the enforcement-only congressmen not band together and go on the offensive against whoever is in their way even if it is the President. As Thomas Sowell said in Human Events on May 15, 2006, â€œGen. MacArthur once defined defensive warfare in one word: â€˜Defeat.â€™â€ The enforcement-only congressmen have been losing for decades, and they are used to it. They have become mere courtesans. No leader, no Congress can lose for decades and hold respect. What have the revolutionaries to lose, assuming they are not in it for a career?
As brilliant as Mr. Sowell is on most occasions, he is clearly a defeatist when he assumes a Democratic takeover (which by the way will almost certainly occur if the House compromises) â€œdisqualifies them for national leadership when a nuclear Iran and nuclear terrorists loom on the horizon.â€ Do not most know Bush is going to take no decisive military action against Iran? Do not most know nuclear terrorism is not going to be cured by Bush or anybody else on the horizon? If he were serious about nuclear terrorism, he would evacuate our cities and use tactical nuclear weapons agaisnt countries with leaders such as Iran.
Be clear about one thing, if anything. Bush is the enemy. Just as he will destroy your Party, country, and culture over Iraq, he will destroy them over his dedication to his adoptive Mexican culture regardless of argument. Destroy over Iraq? Yes, Chris Matthews and his correspondents really drove this home tonight when they concluded Bush is going to pursue the Iraq war no matter what. Evidence of his disregard for the will of the American people over Mexico: his continual lying about whether he his pushing amnesty. Offense is needed.
Nevertheless, keep a close eye on and support David Vitter, my senator, a brilliant, fearless person I am certain will be a formidable Presidential. I know him, and he is the real thing.
