|November 6, 2004 -- I left Carlisle, Pennsylvania yesterday
evening. I stopped to sleep at a service plaza along the Ohio Turnpike/I-80.
I got to Manteno, Illinois around 4:15 PM this afternoon and dropped my loaded trailer. I picked up a new load, this one going to Hazleton, Pennsylvania.
I've spent some time today listening to "Air America" which bills itself as a "Liberal Talk Radio Network." God, talk about sour grapes!!!!! They don't seem to "get" why Liberalism (so-called "progressive politics" -- it's all the same thing) was so resoundingly rejected by ordinary American voters.
Bush won the election primarily because a majority of everyday Americans
realized that Bush would better protect the country from terrorism than
Kerry. To people like me, Kerry came across as wishy-washy and willing to
say anything with a straight face, whether he believed it or not, in order
to garner votes -- constantly contradicting himself in the process. Modern
liberalism has been resoundingly rejected at the ballot box. Simply trying
to "repackage" the liberal or so-called "progressive" message in a different
way won't make any difference. The Democrat Party has been taken over by the
more radically left elements of the party, and everyday Americans see this.
