Things you have to believe to support George Bush:

Saddam was a good guy when Reagan armed him, a bad guy when Bush's daddy made war on him, a good guy when Cheney did business with him, and a bad guy when Bush needed a "we can't find Bin Laden" diversion.

Trade with Cuba is wrong because the country is communist, but trade with China and Vietnam is vital to a spirit of international harmony.

A woman can't be trusted with decisions about her own body, but multi-national corporations can make decisions affecting all mankind without regulation.

Jesus loves you, and shares your hatred of homosexuals and trial lawyers.

The best way to improve military morale is to praise the troops in speeches while slashing veterans' benefits and combat pay.

If condoms are kept out of schools, adolescents won't have sex.

Providing health care to all Iraqis is sound policy. Providing health care to all Americans is socialism.

HMOs and insurance companies have the best interests of the public at heart.

Global warming and tobacco's link to cancer are junk science, but creationism should be taught in schools.

A president lying about an extramarital affair is an impeachable offense. A president lying to enlist support for a war in which thousands die is solid defense policy.

Government should limit itself to the powers named in the Constitution, which include banning gay marriages and censoring the Internet.

The public has a right to know about Hillary's cattle trades, but George Bush's cocaine conviction and military record*is none of our business.

Being a drug addict is a moral failing and a crime, unless you're a conservative radio host. Then it's an illness, and you need our prayers for your recovery.

You support states' rights, which means Attorney General John Ashcroft can tell states what local voter initiatives they have the right to adopt.

What Bill Clinton did in the 1960s is of vital na tional interest, but what Bush did in the '80s is irrelevant.

Friends don't let friends vote for Bush

You know what though, you'd think it would be a no-brainer. How could enough Americans vote for Bush to keep him in office?! I can't imagine it. However, I am entirely unconvinced that they will kick his a** back to wherever he came from. (Pardon my French, he he) I jus't don't feel good about this. Record numbers will watch this election from every corner of the world. Keeping my fingers crossed, just wish that I didn't feel so uneasy... :(

Beautifully put but let's add one more to that list:

We (Bush Admin) go on and on about "weapons of mass destruction" and then one day we wake up and we never mention it again.

I think there are good reasons not to like George Bush. The only question I have is, "Is Kerry a good candidate just because he's not Bush, or is he really a good choice?" I've noticed many anti-Kerry sentiments, especially over his fitness to be Commander In Chief of the armed forces. There are a number of incidents like this:

WASHINGTON -- Chanting "Kerry lied," hundreds of Vietnam veterans on Sunday rallied against fellow veteran and Democratic presidential nominee John Kerry.
Comrades died because of people like Kerry and Jane Fonda, asserted Larry Bailey, a U.S. Navy veteran and president of Vietnam Vets for the Truth.
With the U.S. Capitol as a backdrop, Bailey accused Kerry of lying three decades ago when he returned from Vietnam and gave testimony before the U.S. Senate in 1971 alleging widespread atrocities by American troops.
"We can tell him (Kerry) and spit in his eye while we're doing it, 'we served honorably and compassionately,'" Bailey said to cheers from the crowd of approximately 1,000.

--------------------------------------------------------------
I hope this isn't a case of choosing between the lesser of two evils. I'm seeing lots of anti-Bush posts here, but not much offering valid support of Kerry. How 'bout it ladies and gentlemen? ;)

you're right, umm, i meant correct
i don't like bush, especially because his "hanlders" are turning america into amerika

big money is getting richer and the poor are getting poorer

in u.s. politics the difference between republicans and democrats is smaller than most of us would probably like to believe, but bush is the focus of the evil that currently resides at the apex of u.s. political power

almost anything would be a welcome change

and if kerry loses this election, it will look even worse for democrats
sortat like when harper lost the election (even lost popular vote) whilst the liberals were trying to extricate themselves from under the sponsorship scandal

bush is leading by double digits
looks like only divine intervention can help at this point
oh sorry. God is a Republican

I think Kerry is an excellent candidate and I see absolutely no reason why he would lie about what happened in Vietnam. I think it's safe to believe that there were most likely quite a few soldiers that acted less than appropriately towards civilians. What would Kerry have to gain from making statements like that? That was also 30 years ago and I think it's time to drop it already. Nobody would even be talking about it if it wasn't spotlighted on the news, and certainly not if it wasn't in any of the campaign ads.

I've watched quite of few interviews he's been in, earlier in the year, and from what I've learned of him he's not only "not bush", but someone I feel can help America get out the big hole Bush has dug .

At the risk of sounding cynical , Jeac5, do enough Americans need to vote for Bush? After all, look what happened last time. I have a feeling Bush will be re-elected - regardless of how many people actually vote for him.
Oh, and you can add my "amen" to the list.

Wolfshead, I agree. Call me a cynic too, but I'm just wondering whether it even matters how many people vote for Bush, based on the last election. He has an awful lot of power and is more than sleazy enough to use it!

If you read Michener's TEXAS you'll see that's a pretty standard procedure...and you'll understand Bush and empire only too well. tongue.gif :rolleyes: :mad: graemlins/nuts.gif

Macdoc, there are those in Texas who oppose Bush and all that he stands for. Of course, it is difficult difficult to identify these bodies once the 2T2C (aka, the "Texas Thought Control Corps") gets done with them in some dark stretch of desert. I fear the day that Bush read "Mein Kampf".
