What will we do if Kerry wins?

October 26, 2004

Dear Editor:

We have heard the question many times, "What will we do if Kerry wins?"

After evaluating Mr. Kerry's campaign promises, the following appears to be what we will do if Kerry is in the White House:

We will pay more taxes, because with all his "plans" the government will have to have substantially more money. Consequently, we will suffer rapidly growing inflation (which President Bush has been able to contain).

We will be held hostage by terrorists while Kerry tries to determine the "politically correct" thing to do the next time America is hit. Remember, he did say we need to be more "sensitive" in our dealings with the terrorists! And it is almost a given that America will be hit again if and when our president shows the lack of stamina to "stay the course" and get the job completed on their soil, instead of letting it come onto ours.


Our family members will "wait their turn" for medical care, including such critical care procedures as bypass surgery, when it becomes "government run." In government-run medical care this can be months or even years.

We must forget about improving medical technology - companies will refuse to spend the research and development time and money for products that are government controlled, and thus not cost-effective.

We must not even think about research and improved prescriptions for treatment of illnesses, including Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, Chronic Fatigue, Fibromyalgia, along with the many other illness which are becoming more and more common, because drug companies, too, will refuse to invest in developing drugs which are government controlled and companies cannot realize a return on their investment.

Mr. Kerry's campaign promises are very threatening for Americans - threatening for our safety from terrorists, for our access to health care, and for our family budgets.

For your sake, for your family's sake and for America's sake, vote for President Bush next Tuesday.
