If you're familiar with the concept behind "The Hall of Legends", then you're probably wondering why the leader of the free world has been given admittance. I'll admit, it seems a little unfitting to place a man in his position in a spot dedicated to those who have achieved great things but not received ample credit for their actions. Unfortunately, that is the case for George W. Bush. For too long, ignorant Americans have bought into the hype and propaganda of the media and decided to ridicule the man who has led this nation through one of its darkest hours. And so now it's time to set the record straight and give our president, George W. Bush the praise he's deserved for making America safe for us all, even if it's only on a small website that most people will never even see.
To this day, I have never heard anybody say "I love John Kerry." The only thing I've heard from those who are planning to vote for the democrat this November is "I hate George W. Bush." It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out that there's something extremely wrong with this picture. I just don't understand how people can feel that they're acting in the best interest of their country when their sole focus is getting one man out of office, instead of voting the right man in. To take an analogy from the sports world, those who are anti-George W. Bush are like baseball fans who are "Yankee haters". Instead of following a particular club, their favorite team is "whoever is playing the Yankees." These fans are consumed with seeing a team lose, and as a result they never experience what it's like to actually win. If you're casting your vote based on "whoever is running against George W. Bush." You and your countrymen will never win. In the end, even if you do succeed, you will be left with a president who is unfit to lead the nation.
And so that leads me to my next question - "Why do so many people hate George W. Bush?" I think a large majority of it has to do with the corruption of the moral fibers of America. We've spent so long placing our values in fame and fortune, that those things have now become the determining factor in our decision making. We've spent so much time mindlessly worshipping actors and musicians that they've now attained a status where they're in position to influence our morals. We now longer make decisions based on what's right, but rather on what those who are famous do. And because of those misplaced priorities, we're now taking advice about who should run our country from a man who almost married Jennifer Lopez. If you stop and think about it, it's entirely ridiculous. There is a huge population of Americans who are questioning the decisions of the most educated people on earth as a result of comments made by a high school drop-out simply because that high school drop-out co-starred with Julia Roberts. It really boggles the mind. In November we're going to vote for the man who will make decisions that affect our jobs, health-care, and national security, and people are taking advice from Kirsten Dunst. Have people gone completely insane !?!?!
I realize that there are a lot of people who are against war, and therefore against George W. Bush. Listen, if you think we should've taken the Al Gore approach and apologized to Osama Bin Laden for upsetting him enough to fly airplanes into the World Trade Center, then you're right, we shouldn't have gone to war. But if you think that we owe it to those who lost their lives or family members on September 11th, to ensure that they did not die in vain and more importantly, that no American would have to die a similar death, then war is the only way to go. George W. Bush did not make the decision to go to war lightly. He knew full well that his decision would cost American soldiers their lives. But he also knew that their sacrifice would ensure that our children could grow up in a world where they didn't have to worry about terrorists blowing up their parents' office building. He knew that taking down Sadaam Hussein would liberate an entire country of people, and prevent Iraq and the surrounding countries from being a haven for future terrorists. And whether you believe Sadaam had weapons of mass destruction, or whether you believe Justin Timberlake, the fact remains that twenty-five years from now, the world is going to be a safer place for everybody because we went to war against Iraq.
So that, in a few short words, is why come November, DeROK.Net will be casting its vote for George W. Bush. And unless you happen to be a big fan of terrorism, you probably should too. But regardless of whether or not people decide to make an educated decision instead of putting their future in the hands of Bruce Springsteen and put Geroge W. Bush back in the Oval Office. Our president will always have a spot in the Hall of Legends.
"Thank you George W. Bush, for being the president of faith we all can look up to."
