Scare Tactics or Truth?

This is what voting for Democrats means:

Once again Wapo produces a story inferring that the Republican party is resorting to scare tactics.
They are as well they should. Despite the polls and despite the Foley FireStorm, the unmitigated fact is we must be scared to death of the Democrats... they are the terrorists best chance for survival, their only chance. People need to be reminded about the consequences of voting for the Democratic party. Dire consequences. Taxes will be raised, they will try to turn back (their words) tax cuts, they will destroy all the successes the economy has achieved in the last few years and they will spend their time focusing on issues that have nothing to do with national security.

Be scared, be very very scared.

President Bush and top GOP officials plan to spend the final days of the 2006 campaign attempting to rally partisans and limit conservative defections with dire warnings about the consequences of a Democratic Congress.

Amid predictions that demoralized conservative voters might sit out the election, Bush and other senior Republicans will escalate charges that Democrats will raise taxes, weaken national security and liberalize social policies. Bush struck those themes in campaign appearances yesterday in Pennsylvania and Virginia, and White House senior adviser Karl Rove said he "will consistently refresh that message" between now and Election Day.

I still believe that mistakes made will mean considerably less to the voters on election day, than the ramifications of voting in the Democrats. National Security will be foremost in their mind. So will the fact that the Dow is at the highest point in history, Gas prices are lower, we have not had an attack on US soil, we are SAFER than we were under the Democratic rule.

Rove is still confident:

Rove, who believes that Republicans will hold both the House and Senate, said Democrats have failed to capitalize on events because they lack a clear message that presents a compelling alternative to the Republicans. "Generally when you're trying to nationalize something and you're the out party, you have a consistent message," he said. "I'm not sure what that consistent message is on the other side. Is there unanimity on Iraq? I don't think so."

Rove, speaking by telephone while on a campaign swing with the president, discounted polls and other indicators suggesting that Democratic voters are far more energized than Republicans. He said the GOP's get-out-the-vote operation, which proved more effective than the Democrats' in the past two elections, will be as strong or stronger this year.

Let us not forget what a Democratic win would mean either.

Less Jail Time for Selling Crack Cocaine - H.R. 2456: Charlie Rangel (D-NY) and 23 Democratic cosponsors want to eliminate mandatory minimum sentences for possessing, importing, and distributing crack cocaine. John Conyers, the would-be Chairman of the Judiciary Committee, which has jurisdiction over the bill, is a cosponsor.

Voting Rights for Criminals - H.R. 1300: John Conyers (D-MI) and 32 Democratic cosponsors, and H.R. 663: Charlie Rangel (D-NY) and 28 Democratic cosponsors would let convicted felons vote. Rep. John Conyers is the would-be Democratic Chairman of the Judiciary Committee which would consider this legislation.

Pelosi's World.... these are their issues. Where is national security? Where is reference to OUR safety? Where is anything on the war on terror, other than "cutting and running" with our tails between our legs.

Think about these things when you go to the voting booth.
