Why Bush? What's Wrong with Kerry Symposium

Since the Carter administration (inflation, appeasing terrorists, asking people to sacrifice for the greater good with high taxes, high unemployment, lost ground in the Cold War), it’s obvious that the legacy’s of the democrats has been “making a mess,” and the Republicans “cleaning it up.” In the process of cleaning it up, democrats exploit the mess (with the help of the Mainstream Media), and blame it on Republicans to get re-elected

Bill Clinton, who rode the waves of the Reagan tax cuts, Cold War victory and dot-com stock-market boom, can be remembered for the following legacy of threatening metastasizing issues:

1. Terrorism
2. Pornography
3. Gambling
4. Poor education
5. Cutting the military
6. Tying the hands of the intelligence community
7. Assumed that the UN was a powerful instrument of peace, and allowed our troops to be subjected to UN commanders. Turned a blind eye to corruption, greed, racism, and genocide.

Just imagine the mess that Kerry will make, when the stakes are higher! Global tests, treating terrorism as a nuisance, higher taxes, appeasement and “peace brokering,” and a liberal agenda will surely emerge like the beast of the fever-swamp, based on his Senate record.

Bush has continued the Reagan legacy that we celebrated in July by cutting taxes, equipping and investing in our military (that Clinton ran into the ground), and promoting a “culture of life” and empowerment of the people. That’s why George W. Bush is clearly the responsible choice for 2004.

Ok, a few things.

1) bush in no way resembles Reagan. Reagan did some pretty horrible things as president, but by and large, he presented himself at least as a good figurehead for the country and he made an effort to work with democrats in Washington. The only resemblence between the two is that under both the economy was good only for the very wealthy. Does no one remember 20 years ago? Trickle-down economics was a bust as policy and drove us into a recession.

2)Kerry is not Clinton. Clinton was an excellent president, but he and Kerry are not one in the same not should they be.

"Just imagine the mess that Kerry will make, when the stakes are higher! Global tests, treating terrorism as a nuisance, higher taxes, appeasement and “peace brokering,” and a liberal agenda will surely emerge like the beast of the fever-swamp, based on his Senate record."

Ok, we should be involved in 'peace brokering' and when we act militarily outside of our country we should be able to defend what we are doing to other nations. And since the nekkid emperor drove us into a far and a deficit, some taxes should be coming up. And please, what is the "beast of the fever-swamp" all about?

Kerry ain't perfect; I got plenty of problems with him, just like I have with damn near any politician who is in office. But he will listen to people who disagree with him and he is willing to respect the right of folks to disagree. The same shamefully can not be said of the current president.

Do people really feel safer with bush in the whitehouse? Are you economics any better than they were 4 years ago? Is America more respected globally?

Dig deep people, no more parroting talking points and blind devotion to the prez, you have a choice. An imperfect choice, but he would have a hard time doing a worse job.

You are how you vote! Your vote for a particular candidate says that you value their beliefs, position, values, morals, more so than that of the person you are not voting for. These are the things we hold as uncompromising charateristics--right? Aren't these the things we tell our children? Explain to your child the views of the the candidate you are voting for on the issue of abortion--partial-birth or otherwise; gay marriage; faith; etc. Go down the list and defend your candidate's views and your own. How do they compare to your life's standard? What is your life's standard? Your vote will clearly define what it is if you are unsure!
