Americans face a stark choice on Tuesday. In Barack Obama we are faced with a radical, left-wing candidate who has managed to win support with lofty language and catchphrases but little real substance. In John McCain we have a man who has talked straight, consistently fighting for this country, even when it meant going against his party.
In Obama we are faced with a candidate who believes it is government's duty to "spread the wealth around." McCain believes that government should get out of your way and let you keep the money that you earn so you can achieve prosperity and grow this economy.
In Obama we are faced with a candidate who is outside the mainstream of his own party when it comes to abortion, actually working against legislation to offer medical treatment to infants born alive in botched abortions as an Illinois state senator. McCain has consistently worked to protect the unborn, who cannot protect themselves.
In Obama we are faced with a candidate who actively opposed the surge strategy that has brought us one step closer to final victory and peace and stability in Iraq. McCain fought for the surge when it seemed like political suicide to do so.In Obama we are faced with a candidate who spent more than 20 years in a church pastored by the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, who called our country "the US of KKK A" and put forth that "God bless America" should instead be "God damn America." This is a man who bought his home in Chicago with the help of a crooked land developer and now-convicted felon, Tony Rezko. This is a man who launched his political career in the living room of William Ayers, an unrepentant domestic terrorist, who bombed the U.S. Capitol, the Pentagon and a police station in New York City and wishes he could have done more. And there's still Franklin Raines, Jim Johnson, Rashid Khalidi and others in Obama's network.
The choice before us could not be clearer. Cutting through the rhetoric and the slogans there is only one candidate that has a proven record of leadership, independence and moral courage and that candidate is John McCain. Vote McCain/Palin on Tuesday.
