How I Came to Support the President

You may think that I was born supporting President George W. Bush. And you would be right. But it was a sort of subconscious yearning for his leadership, not the overt devotion you see now. Sure, we had President Reagan at the time, and he was a very capable precursor to President Bush. A sort of John the Baptist to his Jesus, you might say.

I first became aware of these feelings deep inside me on that fateful day one September several years ago. I was alone and afraid. Muslim terrorists were trying to kill me and my family. And the only thing that stood between me and they was a man named George W. Bush.

But my support of the President was underdeveloped and scrawny at that time. Like all Americans, I only supported him because we were in time of crisis. My true epiphany came on September 14, 2001. You remember that day well. When President Bush stood on that rubble, with the rescue workers, and said "I hear you, the rest of the world hears you, and the people who knocked these buildings down will hear all of us soon!" my legs went all rubbery, and I instantly knew that I would follow this man to the depths of hell if I had to.

Many people support a politician because he agrees with them. This is the wrong way to go about it. I support President Bush, therefore I agree with him. My pre-President Bush lifestyle was a shambles. I just invented ideas out of my own skull and believed them to be true. Oh, the arrogance of it all. But on 9/14/01, I adopted every single one of the President's stances as my own. Hey, making up my own is cool and all, but there's a good chance I would be wrong. By adopting the President's ideology in whole, I guaranteed I would not be wrong, ever. When the President changed his mind (based on actual facts, and not just shameful flipflopping, mind you), I changed mine. America and I both prospered under this system.

I'm interested in how you became a supporter of President George W. Bush. Go ahead and put your stories in the comments. Person with the most inspiring devotion may win a prize.
