The Longest Day: 60 Years After, Election 2004

Remembering working late on Election Day 2000, then arriving home to follow the returns until 3 am, when we knew that there would be no winner yet.

Tomorrow will be a monumental day in the lives of America. President Bush, who I believe has led the American people in good faith, making the hard choices, and putting it all on the line for the benefit of those who will follow. His actions domestically are lacking in many ways with deficits, jobs, and healthcare begging for solutions that haven't evolved yet! The emphasis has been on "force protection" since 2001. Dealing with more terroist activity on "mainstreet'' would have long since crippled our entire economy and monetary system.

President Bush has succeeded in that arena, although at a great cost, he embodies the historic spirit of a patriot and statesman. I believe the American people, seeing all the shortcomings, will re-elect him to complete this task, for he demonstrates loyalty and honor.

Sen. Kerry plays to the weak, those who have no vision for what can be, by holding the course. The words of Sen. Kerry seem mutinous and with malice, although dissent is a part of democracy, his character is maligned in failing to see beyond the horizon. Even our enemies taut us publically with his words; this is not a good sign. I am reminded of operations involving PSYOPS, that berate the mind with words that hold little logic, but appeal to those of little faith, those who are unable to grasp the courage to hold the course!

The American people will speak with a loud voice, one that demonstrates that we will follow the man, who seeks the face of God, in choosing the path that brings our nation together and under God.

As in elections bygone, we will declare winners before the polls close in some time zones across the USA, so I will now declare George W. Bush to be the victor.

In declaring this, I do not believe George Bush to be a "Captain Ahab", one that possesses a passion for the "white whale" that foregoes all logic and decency, I do believe that he will take the path, although most treacherous, one that will lead us to safety.
