Political hate

I have bumper stickers in support of President Bush and our brave troops.

I received a handwritten note on the back of an Earth Song Market receipt. It read “You are the Stupid B—-! Bush loving C—!” My response: I am glad my vote will cancel out yours this fall.

You, who profess peace in your hearts, love in your souls, and organic food in your stomachs, are not a peaceful group at all. You spike trees and blow up SUVs in the cause of saving Mother Earth.

You claim diversity and tranquility, yet express hateful words and loathing for those of us who are not like you.

You demand your right to exist in your own world but deny my right to exist in the real world.

Your bumper stickers say, “Free Tibet.” What about “Free Iraq”?

I commend our president and our all-volunteer military for their courage in combating terrorism. Remember 9/11!

We are a great nation, with good and generous people. We are not the bad guys.

For peace to occur, somebody has to win. I want freedom to win.

I’m proud to be a Republican American.

Freedom-loving people, vote this fall.
