A Thought for Election Day

“You may not be interested in war, but war is interested in you.”
— Leon Trotsky

The final polls are predicting a Democratic sweep; if that's how the election pans out, we'll have peace in our time, right? Timetable for withdrawal? No problemo! So here's one last little Election Day tidbit about our enemies from screenwriter Dan Gordon:
[M]ake no mistake about who it is they want to kill. If you are a Christian they want to kill you. If you are a Jew they want to kill you. If you are a Buddhist, a Hindu, a Taoist, or a Jain, or a Muslim of a slightly different creed, they want to kill you. If you a secularist and believe in gay marriage, gay adoption, gay rights, or gay pride, they want to kill you. If you watch movies and like rock n’ roll, if you read Playboy, or Cosmo, if you wear mini-skirts, or “allow” your daughter, wife or girlfriend to do so, they want to kill you. When they say convert to Islam or die, they mean convert to Islam or they will kill you.

I know you don’t like that. I know you don’t want to believe that. I know you would like to believe only a cross eyed, red necked, right wing, apocalyptic, bozo hick like George Bush would believe such a thing, but that won’t let you off the hook. However much you don’t want to believe it, however much you would like it to go away, however loudly you whistle in the dark and comfort yourself with the sweet thought of Nancy Pelosi hanging her drapes over Denny Hastert’s fat, dead, humiliated body, it is still true.
I've said this before...something evil has risen in the east...we win or we die, or, to borrow another phrase from the great revolutionary Trotsky, consigned to the dustbin of history.

Happy Election wisely.
