[老外直言]-我为什么选布什

  我将投布什的票。布什是个诚实的人,他遵从美国正派公民的传统道德原则。我相信———我知道———布什总统承认绝对真理,而这增进了我对他做事的信任。在这个时代,我们不断听说真理是相对的,在我的许多同胞的意识中,作秀的形象已经取代了真理。

  但是,对我们演讲的布什总统不仅仅是其政治幕僚们所包装出的形象,他是个具有坚强、稳重、值得信赖的品格的人。孤立的反例证明不了什么,我们应该以布什就任总统之前及其入主白宫以来长期的生活方式来对他进行考察。布什明晰的道德观引导着他热爱人民,为人民的福祉工作,并且在其良心和美国正派公民的指引下果断行事。在总统任职期间,布什的观点是一贯的,而且是可预见的,我们美国人不想大吃一惊,我们想按照我们知道并实践着的原则办事。

  在需要美国领导人做出战略性决定方面,布什总统富有经验,他还把从最具资格最有天赋的美国人中挑选出的智囊们聚拢在自己周围。布什是已被证明确有其才的军事统帅,美军在执行他的政策中的伤亡数字按比例并不比一个美国大城市普通居民在日常生活中的伤亡更大。我赞赏总统对恐怖主义奋战到底直至铲除其滋生地的决心,这一决心是已被证实了的。我不想让敌人藏在我的祖国,更愿他们在自己的国家里就被击溃。

  让我把话说得更清楚吧:即便美国人民现在有一位同样能胜任总统一职的候选人,我也不会选择“在溪流中行进时中途换马”。让布什为正在进行的宏图伟业继续奋斗吧!我相信,成功指日可待。我对总统的支持就如同总统对我的支持那般重要。他所体现的真理和原则(那也是我所祈祷的)将决定美国的未来。

  像大多数美国人一样,我的基本需求是安全、获得良好的医疗保障、足够的收入(这只有在良好而稳定的商业环境得以维持的情况下才能实现)以及选择各种工作的自由。我确信,在我们需要什么的时候,布什总统会竭尽全力满足我们的需求。

  I will vote for George W. Bush. Bush is a truthful man who follows the traditional moral principles of the good people of the United States. I believe -- I know -- that President Bush acknowledges absolutes, and that fosters my faith in his actions. In our time we are constantly told that truth is relative. Image has taken the place of truth in the minds of many of my fellow citizens.

  But the President Bush who speaks to us is no mere image crafted by political masterminds: he is a man of strong, stable, trustworthy character. Isolated counterexamples prove nothing. Bush should be measured by his lifestyle BEFORE he was president AND since taking office. George Bush's clear ethics guide him to love people, work for their well-being, and act decisively as directed by his heart and the good people of America. As president, Bush has been consistent and predictable. We Americans want no surprises. We want action in accordance with principles we know and live by ourselves.

  President Bush is experienced in making the strategic decisions required of the leader of the United States, and he surrounds himself with advisors drawn from our most qualified and talented people. Bush is a proven military commander. Losses to US troops in the implementation of his policies have been proportionately no greater than those suffered by ordinary citizens in a large American city in the course of daily life. And I applaud the president's proven willingness to take the fight against terrorism to its breeding ground. I want no hostilities in my homeland. I prefer that the enemy be defeated on his own territory.

  Let me be clear: even if Americans were offered an equally qualified candidate, I would not opt to "change horses in mid-stream". Let Bush continue to work at the great projects now underway. I believe that success will come soon. Mysupportofthepresidentisasimportanttomeasishissupportofme. He embodies the truths and principles that I pray will define the American future.

  My basic needs, like those of most Americans, are security, access to good medical care, sufficient income (which can only be the result of maintaining a positive and stable business environment) and the freedom to be whatever I want to be. President Bush, I feel certain, will do everything he can to provide what we Americans need when we need it.
