George Bush has done more to liberate oppressed groups, including women and religious and ethnic minorities, than any other president since Ronald Reagan. America is helping to restore environmental damage done by decades of tyranny in Iraq, feeding the hungry, helping the disenfranchised to vote and determine their own destinies. Women in Afghanistan are going to school, working, and voting. The people of Iraq are now free to elect their own government. If they take advantage of this great opportunity they have been given, they can be a shining example of freedom and democracy to the millions living in medieval theocracies that surround them. Why has this happened? Was it due to the fearless leadership of Koffi Annan and Jacques Chirac? I think not. Their silence over such injustices has been deafening. The one politician who has stood up consistently over the past three years to bring about these changes has been George Bush. I'm an RPCV-Philippines, and have had a complete change of heart over the years as to which political party best represents the Christian principles of helping the oppressed and relieving tyranny in the world.
