Core Issue

This entry will be relatively simple. The entire presidential campaign is this simple, at heart, though it is so covered in lies, non sequiturs, and vanities that one can hardly discern the Being for the Notion (don't ask).

It has been three years since we were attacked, merely a visible sign of a war that had been raging for years before we took notice. President Bush has vowed to destroy our enemies, and many terrorists are now dead, and several bodies sponsoring terror have been eradicated. There is little to fault in the conduct of the war; minor issues have arisen, but the war continues, and we are winning. Our liberty is more secure and we have freed two populations from fascism and theocracy.

The War on Terror is the most important issue of our day. Do you think John Kerry will conduct that war as well or better than President Bush has? Has John Kerry given anyone any indication of what he would do if elected?

What will John Kerry do, anyway? He has been reticent. He also seems to take for granted that President Bush has not done well, though the record clearly indicates otherwise.

Why vote for Kerry? Who throw Bush out after so much success?

Nothing else matters right now. Gay marriage, the economy, judicial nominees - what are these next to the security of our country and the lives of its citizens?

Yes, that is indeed the core issue. However, let us not forget the importance of those other issues you cite. While I do feel that Bush will do better than Kerry in resolving these issues (though many others would undoubtedly do better; amazing what having a spine can do!), should they all be allowed to fester, the fewer reasons we have to defend America, or, equivalently, the less America there is to defend.

You are correct that the core issue should be The War on Terror and Its Sponsors, but the other issues you cite should comprise at least a small percentage of the debate (15% maybe?).
