ATTENTION LIBERALS: Let's Unite The Country
Red Stater's INVITATION TO UNITE THE COUNTRY:
In the post below (Bush To Terrorists: "America is not Leaving") I offer an invitation for liberal/Democrat bloggers to Convert to Victory and unite the country.
Please read the entire post and consider this sincere offer to unite the country and reduce the polarization America is currently "suffering" from.
I will back-up my offer with this.
For every liberal anti-war blogger who "Converts to Victory" and posts his/her Victory Conversion story on his/her weblog, I will write and post a nice pro-liberal or pro-democrat story here on Red Stater.
If ya really wanna unite the country and stop the polarization (like you claim) here's your big chance.
If ya' wanna convert Red Stater to a Democrat, here's the way to possibly do it.
(Convert enough liberal bloggers to Victory, and I will write a new pro-democrat story every day and eventually it might just rub off on me)
If ya' claim to support the troops (or "troupes" as one blogger accidently wrote) here is your chance to support them without calling for their defeat.
Your Conversion to VICTORY must be sincere and there are no "but's" allowed.
(as in... I support victory, ...BUT...)
Your Conversion to VICTORY must appear on your blog in your own words.
(No tricks and no games).
Then post your "victory support" in the comments section here at Red Stater and watch me struggle to say nothing but nice things about liberals and democrats.
Aside from saving your life and perhaps the entire planet, the above might be the best reason yet to "support victory"!
Disclaimer: Supporting victory does not mean you believe that victory is assured or that you even believe we are in a war, (or that you like Bush) but does mean that IF we are in a war, and IF victory is possible, that you support said victory. ie: Victory in Iraq.
(I can't make it any easier than that.)
Victory as defined (by President George W Bush) for the purpose of this offer is "A free and democratic Iraq that is a friend to America and a partner in the war on terror".
Hey, it beats converting to Islam ...or death!
UPDATE: 12/21/2006- aaron (avandeg) at BOMBSHELL (odd title for a anti-war liberal) responded in the comments section below with about 2 pages of bush-hating rants which began with two words- "no thanks".
aaron/avandeg then went on to post over 20 sequential, one-word, sophmoric comments and attack me in the "Harry Reid on Life Support" post (below).
Thus, we have gone to comments by approval only.
So that's ONE hateful liberal who admits he supports America's DEFEAT, but ZERO for VICTORY or uniting the country. (so far...)
Please welcome OTTER from The Otter Limits (and several other progressive blogs) who supports the troops by supporting their Victory in Iraq.
You can read otter's comment below (see comments) and join me in having the utmost respect for his courage and honesty in standing up for VICTORY.
God Bless You Otter... a nice piece highlighting you and other democrats/liberals is coming in the next few days before I post anything else. (as promised) In the meatime, watch for the band OTISBURG everyone!
UPDATE: 12/23/2006- Please welcome DAVE at The Oklahoma Lefty blogs who says "Now that we are there, we need to succeed in Iraq".
I applaud you Dave and (as promised) I will write a nice piece on you and your blog as well as Democrats in general...coming soon.
I do want to warn you to be sure and put on your kevlar underwear... siding with "the enemy" can get you into trouble.
God Bless you.
UPDATE: 12/25/2006-Another progressive who joins us in uniting the country is Anthony from "Concerned Citizens of Today" who writes... "I do support the war. I do feel like we have done more good than harm. So, yes I am with you on this. I definitely support our troops and are very proud of them for what they do. Thanks again to any of our brave troops that read this."
I'm sure it's safe for me to say (on behalf of those brave troops) - Thank you Anthony...for supporting VICTORY.
UPDATE: 12/27/2006- And then we hear from Rodger... ( didn't bother to actually read my complete offer), who doesn't think we are fighting against anyone except innocent Iraqi's, that victory is not possible, and he believes Americans shouldn't support victory in the first place...
See his comments in the comment section here or go to his recent post on this subject where he says...
"US troops are the foreign fighters responsible for killing the largest number of innocent Iraqis. Until everyone realizes this, then American foreign policy toward Iraq will fail".
So, if we admit we are the bad guys... we can win.
Not so say's Rodger... not even then.
We can officially mark "Rodger" down in the "supports the defeat of his own country" category.
I wonder if Rodger knows aaron?
Maybe we should introduce them...
