RED AND BLUE OF
VIGILANCE VS. TERRORISM
ZERO PLUS 1160 DAYS,--New York, NY, Monday, November
for Vigilance over Terrorism is a geographical fact of life,
at least when it comes to parents in America choosing who they
want to protect their land from the Beast of Terror, that is.
America's "heartland" chose President Bush to
protect their land
been spoken and written about the presidential election of 2004
in which George W. Bush defeated John Kerry in one of the most
bitter and virulent campaigns in modern times.
both candidates attacked and impugned the other's character
of leadership. Accusations reached the boiling point where one
side accused the other of near treasonous behavior and the other
called the actions to fight terrorism based on lies and monetary
greed at the expense of American life.
I was glad
when it was over, for the campaign was like watching two street
fighters kicking each other while they were down, and throwing
below-the-belt punches. The battle wasn't of the nature you
would want children to form models from for future behavior,
for each candidate lowered himself to the primordial ooze of
political slime slinging.
the thesis of the campaign had a lot to do with its nature.
candidates attacked and impugned the other's character
was about fighting Terrorism, and Terrorism by its sheer character
is ugly, distorted, cancerous and void of any parameters of
"moral character" for it is fought from the most primal
foundations of ripping, tearing and shredding the opponent until
only shards of flesh are left on bleached bones.
the city of Falluja is one example. It is virtually leveled,
reduced to rubble as a result of the fierce stance by insurgents
who refused to surrender.
the battlefield of the presidential election is still littered
with blood from the bleeding wounds of those who are still stunned
that John Kerry, the Democratic liberal candidate, lost to George
W. Bush. Proponents of Kerry drew the character of Bush as being
a vicious, greedy capitalist thirsty to drink the oil of Iraq
at the expense of killing American troops to seize it.
of Kerry likened Bush to a greedy capitalist
on the Kerry side marched for months with signs that likened
George Bush to being Adolph Hitler and labeled him as a war
criminal, a vile and corrupt signet of the worst type of leadership
the world has ever seen.
all the acidic accusations, George Bush won the election, and,
he won the heartland of America.
the opposition to President Bush's anti-Terrorism platform came
from the major cities such as Los Angeles, New York and Chicago.
Over the past century, the U.S. population has shifted from
a rural agricultural distribution to a crowded, huddled mass
in centralized urban environments.
thirty-five cities in the U.S. contain in excess of 83 percent
of the total U.S. population.
one looks at the famed or, as some say, "infamous"
red-blue electoral map showing how the U.S. voters cast ballots
in the 2004 election, it is clear that the heartland of America,
what is referred to as America's "breadbasket," chose
"Vigilance" over "Terrorism."
that President Bush represents the Sentinel of Vigilance--a
man and father figure willing, capable and able to go to any
lengths to fight Terrorism and drive the Bully Beast of Terror
into the rubble, as evidenced by the U.S. leveling of Falluja
was considered by many a "flip-flopper" not
committed to fighting Terrorism
on the opposite side, was considered by many as a "flip-flopper"
who would retreat American forces from battling Terrorism; he
would revert to a state of isolation, signaling Terrorists that
America was "afraid of them," or "not committed
to hunting down Terrorism" and therefore open up the ongoing
threat that Terrorism would now feel confident to launch further
attacks against the United States.
brutal and blunt terms, President Bush was looked upon as a
brave sheriff willing to drive the "bad guy" out of
town and keep him out, and John Kerry viewed as a coward, willing
to turn his back on Terrorism and expose the nation and its
children to a clear and present danger.
those who claim the election was "close" and by popular
vote, that is true. The popular vote election results gave George
Bush a 3 percent victory, with 51 percent vs. John Kerry's 48
percent. Of the 120 million voters, 60.7 million cast ballots
for George Bush and 57.3 million for John Kerry.
one looks at the geography of the election, another view of
American voting decision is seen.
maps provide a visual illustration of this message. The
election maps show a huge division between "red" and
"blue" states, with John Kerry dominating the west
and east coasts while the middle of America, the commonly referred
to "breadbasket," voted heavily for Bush.
maps are even more startling when viewed by more than 31,000
counties that voted for Bush and Kerry. By a suprising amount,
Red surrounds Blue in every sector. Geographically, it was a
is square miles of U.S. real estate that voted for Bush and
land mass of the continental United States is 3,537,411
square miles. By votes within the 18 states that Kerry won,
Kerry won 23 percent of America's real estate (836,000 square
miles). Conversly, President Bush garnered 77 percent real estate
votes(2,701,441 square miles) in the 32 states he carried.
Bush visiting part of America's heartland with its residents
who voted for him(see
perspective, the Blue States John Kerry won (18) represented
36 percent of the total nation-states, while President Bush's
32, represents a state-by-state victory of 64 percent. To a
casual observer of Red vs Blue States, the landslide victory
is about real estate.
realizes that the vast majority of the U.S. population lives
in major cities, the results are even more startling. They tell
us there are two different worlds--urban and rural, and that
in both two sets of values exist.
of "Bush Country Victory Votes" came from the center
of the United States. This is where the "real America"
is often described, for major marketing companies will not test
new products in major cities for acceptance. Instead, they go
to the "breadbasket" states, the small, central parts
of America where the "heartbeat" is most pronounced.
companies test products in the "breadbasket"
states: the "heartbeat" of America
call this Wal-Mart country, where values are more family oriented
and people look at hard work and simplicity with embrace versus
rhetoric and slicked back hair as an intoxicant.
also represent the fundamental "family values" of
America, primarily noted by America's marketing companies that
test products on "middle America" and chose from the
success there whether to bring such products into the "big
words, if there is a "real America" it has its roots
in the Red States, those that comprise the 2,701,441 (77%) square
miles of U.S. real estate that voted for George Bush.
Vigilance viewpoint, the natural extrapolation is that Americans--the
real breadbasket Americans, the real "family valued Americans"--voted
for a Sentinel of Vigilance who would stand up to Terrorism
over someone who vowed to retreat from fighting it.
in the "breadbasket" Red States are the kind of people
who aren't afraid to go up to a stranger beating on his wife
and kids and stop him, versus the residents of a "big city"
who have a tendency to turn their heads or assume "someone
else" will intervene or, elect that it's "not their
America" has its roots in the red states which comprise
77% of the U.S. real estate that voted for President Bush
Terrorism in Iraq to the Red States is the first step in keeping
Terrorism away from their doorstep. The more willing one is
to chase the bad guy to the ends of the earth, the safer the
States know that waiting until you are attacked is far too late.
Offensive action is necessary to protect the future.
America who are still scratching their heads wondering why Americans
voted for George Bush rather than John Kerry need to think in
terms of "breadbasket" real estate.
77 percent of the American "real estate" landscape
vote for George Bush? Why did these "fundamental Americans"
who live in rural communities, work hard, and have deep roots
in the legacy of American independence seek the Sentinel of
family-valued Americans" voted for Vigilance
pry open the oyster shells of their minds you'll find the pearl
of wisdom. They voted for Bush because of their children and
grandchildren. Fundamental Americans--the Red Staters--sought
to reelect the president because he was willing to fight Terrorism
from afar, despite all forms and shapes of criticism.
forget that George Bush could have, for sheer political reasons
of reelection, told America he was going to pull out of Iraq
just to assure his reelection. He didn't. He risked his political
future on his conviction that Terrorism must be vanquished,
and that America must stand up and fight it no matter what the
and courage didn't go unnoticed by the Red States. Men of conviction
willing to risk their futures for what they believe is right
are hard to come by.
knew as fundamental Americans that by fighting the Beast of
Terror in Iraq kept him farther away from America, and that
turning America's back on the Beast of Terror was only an invitation
for him to attack.
a strong message in the Red States commanding 77 percent of
the total U.S. "real estate" votes for Vigilance.
percent is a message for everyone that being a Sentinel of Vigilance
is more important than being a Democrat or Republican. It serves
as a vital reminder because when the Beast of Terror attacks,
he doesn't discriminate by party. He will kill, maim, rape and
ravage any all in his path.
