The rest of the ABB mind

Shawna has posted the third and final part of her series: "Inside the mind of an ABB part 3".

Here's an interesting excerpt concerning the fear of the incohesive ABB movement:
The amusing part of their fear is what they theorize would happen if Bush were to be reelected. Abortion would be banned. Christianity would become a state-sponsored religion through the faith-based initiatives. Rational people know that these things will not be happening anytime in the near future, no matter how strong Bush's faith is. Lincoln was a God-fearing President, and I don't believe he passed any state-sponsored religious laws.

So what effect might the "ABBs" have on the election? As I said before, fear and hate will drive some of them to the polls, but not all of them. I suspect most of these people will wind up staying home, feeling that their vote doesn't count and that Bush will steal the election anyway (hah!) What if Bush wins? They'll scream he stole the election. It won't matter unless the election isn't even close.

And I don't think it will be close. Now that we know many pollsters are just trying to encourage Kerry's supporters by oversampling Democrats so close to the election, I think the ABB crowd will be surprised on November 2nd.

My prayer for them is that they realize that President Bush isn't the big scary figure and that he will do what's right for the country as a whole.

Great job on the whole series Shawna!! I really learned a lot from all your heard work :)
