On November 2, millions of evangelical Christians and social conservatives awakened from their traditional four year hibernation just in time to reelect President George W. Bush. What horrid event awakened them? It was the presence of a big, bad Boogey Man named John Kerry.
Boogey Man Kerry was a dreadful monster. He drank blood. He bit the heads off birds. He mutilated animals. He huffed and puffed and blew down houses. He pushed little old ladies down staircases. He played polo with human skulls. As a child, his favorite game was Kick The Cat. He was a heinous creature. However, Christians and conservatives can now go back to sleep, because the dreaded Boogey Man is gone.
After all, snoozing is what Christians and conservatives do best. Their naps come in four year increments disturbed only every presidential election cycle by the pounding footsteps of the latest Democratic Boogey Man. And now that the Boogey Man is gone, they can all go back to beddy-bye.
In the event, however, that a few Christians or conservatives are still only putting on their pajamas and have not yet quite made it back to the sack, let me tell you what you missed the last four years while you were unconscious:
*Your Knight-In-Shining-Armor, G.W. Bush, superintended over the deaths of more than four million innocent, unborn babies and did nothing to stop the slaughter.
*Your "anointed" leader increased federal funding for abortions at home and abroad to record levels.
*Your "pro-family" president appointed numerous open homosexuals to high office within the federal government.
*Your "conservative" president increased federal spending more than any administration, Republican or Democrat, in modern memory.
*This "staunch defender of limited government" increased the size and scope of the federal government by pushing through Congress legislation creating federal police powers that can only be described as despotic and tyrannical.
*Your "hero of conservatism" increased funding for virtually every Great Society program ever invented. He increased funding for the Department of Education, the National Endowment for the Arts, the Legal Services Corporation, etc., etc.
*This wonderful president who desires to keep America "safe and secure" proposed granting amnesty to millions of illegal aliens, all of whom are criminals and many of whom are potential terrorists.
*Before you went to sleep four years ago, gasoline prices averaged less than $1.25 a gallon. When you recently got out of bed, did you happen to notice that due to Bush's energy policies, gas prices now exceed $2.00 a gallon?
I could tell you much more of what you missed while you were sleeping, but it only might cause you to stay awake, and we must not let that happen. So, have a good four year nap and know that the Boogey Man is gone. I'm sure you'll wake up in time to chase away the next Democratic Boogey Man in 2008.
Of course, we can't know how many more liberties we will lose and how many more unborn babies will be killed and how many more tax dollars our federal government will be spending by 2008. But that's one of the great advantages of being asleep, isn't it?
