Telephone calls are coming in asking me to contribute to this or that Republican candidate. Some of the calls are accompanied by testimony from a candidate that recites the litany of political positions that sound great and would truly bolster the American conservatives and save our country. However, the Republican candidates we elected prior to the 2006 national election did not carry out the promises they made before we elected them. What's more, the Republicans that survived the 2006 election have taken no effective action to stop the left-wing initiatives of the Democrat majority in Congress.
My greatest concern is the Democrat majority in Congress; they would rather lost the war in Iraq than risk having President Bush and the Republican Party receive any credit for an American victory. I hear nothing from the Republicans in defense of our president's policies. This is why the largely conservative-minded American electorate turned the Republicans out of the majority position in the 2006 elections.
If a sea change in the attitude and actions by the Republicans in Congress to support our great president doesn’t happen this year, our country will feel the national shame of losing the war in Iraq and the pain of future attacks on our homeland by the Islamic fanatics who will come here and populate in our midst.
