Can we trust John Kerry to be president?

October 26, 2004

Dear Editor:

Today, in Vietnam, hanging among the pictures of the North Vietnamese heroes who helped win the war with the United States, hangs a picture of John Kerry. In this picture, he is shaking hands with the enemy leaders of that communist nation. This meeting with the nation's enemies took place, secretly, in Paris, France, while brave Americans were dying at the hands of that very enemy. Along with Hanoi Jane Fonda, he is considered a hero to the communist Vietnamese.

While John Kerry went before Congress in 1971, spewing forth accusations of war crimes against his fellow soldiers still fighting in Vietnam and was secretly meeting with the enemy in a foreign nation, the enemy was using his accusations, torturing American prisoners, trying to force them to admit to the war crimes Kerry was accusing them of. This is to me blatantly and "purposely aiding the nation's enemies." In my dictionary, this is the meaning of the word "treason."


Now, the old political party of my parents and grandparents is backing this man to be president of our nation. How can we trust a man who went against his fellow comrades in battle and against his country in a time of war to lead us now when we face the barbarian terrorists who wish to destroy us?

Are the party members today so loyal to the up-east liberal moguls that they would follow them like the children who followed the Pied Piper right into the sea?

In 1919, the Communist Party of the United States was organized. Each presidential election year since, this communist party has put forth a presidential candidate. But this year the Communist Party of the U.S.A. has not put forth a candidate. Instead, it is doing everything it can to defeat President Bush.

We must stop and think: Is this the path we want to follow? While this liberal Pied Piper blows his flute, are we going to follow him into the sea?
