Howard Dean recently said that “America is safer when Democrats are in the White House, than when Republicans are in the White House…”
Howard Dean is right. When viewed through the leftist prism where force is never justified, that is. If you believe that U.N. diplomacy is the answer to all of America’s security concerns such that military engagements are obsolete, that France, Germany and Russia will look out for U.S. securty concerns and not act in their own self interest, that uncountered threats don’t build over time, that if we can just understand the motives of those who hate America and effectively “change our ways” so they no longer want to destroy us, then Dean is right. If you think all of the above things are true then Amerca is safer under Democrats. When military forces are used, Americans get killed. Democrats (contemporary ones, not the Democrats of the last century) simply won’t put US soldiers in harms way. Elect a Democrat, and Americans won’t get killed. Seems simple enough.
