  • The Lost Party of 2004

       June 20, 2004

    Reprinted, in full, from Democrats for Bush/Cheney 2004, a seemingly dead blog with no "permalink" feature:

    The Lost party of 2004

    Can you imagine a Democrat saying these words today?

    Slowly but surely we are weaving a world fabric of international security and growing prosperity.

    We are aided by all who wish to live in freedom from fear--even by those who live today in fear under their own governments.

    We are aided by all who want relief from lies and propaganda--those who desire truth and sincerity.

    We are aided by all who desire self-government and a voice in deciding their own affairs.

    We are aided by all who long for economic security--for the security and abundance that men in free societies can enjoy.

    We are aided by all who desire freedom of speech, freedom of religion, and freedom to live their own lives for useful ends.

    Our allies are the millions who hunger and thirst after righteousness.

    In due time, as our stability becomes manifest, as more and more nations come to know the benefits of democracy and to participate in growing abundance, I believe that those countries which now oppose us will abandon their delusions and join with the free nations of the world in a just settlement of international differences.

    Events have brought our American democracy to new influence and new responsibilities. They will test our courage, our devotion to duty, and our concept of liberty.

    But I say to all men, what we have achieved in liberty, we will surpass in greater liberty.

    Steadfast in our faith in the Almighty, we will advance toward a world where man's freedom is secure.

    To that end we will devote our strength, our resources, and our firmness of resolve. With God's help, the future of mankind will be assured in a world of justice, harmony, and peace.


    Or these words?

    We in this country, in this generation, are--by destiny rather than choice--the watchmen on the walls of world freedom. We ask, therefore, that we may be worthy of our power and responsibility, that we may exercise our strength with wisdom and restraint, and that we may achieve in our time and for all time the ancient vision of "peace on earth, good will toward men." That must always be our goal, and the righteousness of our cause must always underlie our strength. For as was written long ago: 'except the Lord keep the city, the watchman waketh but in vain.'

    The first excerpt is from Harry Truman, during his 1948 Inaugural Address. The second, from John F. Kennedy, given in Dallas the day of his death.
    Both timeless speeches that are relevent to America's philosophies. Both ideas that have been abandoned by our current party leaders.
