    George W. Bush

    I might actually vote for Kerry before I vote against Kerry. :p (Aw, c'mon, it's not like none of you has ever made fun of something Bush has said!)

    Joe liberman and then Wesly clark. I sort of like bush put I am not happy about what he did after 9/11 when he would not ground the Saudi Royal Family and the Bin Laden family. All Flights where grounded except those two. I like Bush as commander in cheif. So there for I vote for Bush.

    Kerry speaks out of both sides of his mouth.
    He voted for abortion, and tries to make himself look pro-life.
    He critacized howard dean for being pro-gun, but says we have the right to own guns.
    Bush works to fight terrorism
    It's not his fault the intelligance was false, but he had the right intention for going into Iraq. If the war in Iraq was over oil, we'ld have more oil and lower gas prices
    Kerry voted against abortion.
    Abortion is murder. Any one considering abertion should put there baby up for adoption.
    Bush is pro-life.
    Bush is for thefederal marriage amendment.
    Marriage is meant for a man and a woman.

    "bush is plain evil"

    How do you determine "evil?" Between Kerry and Bush, Kerry represents the party for whom good and evil don't exist - "it's all relative."
    I can understand your rage against Bush, but how can you make an absolute statement about him?

    If I was an American, I would vote for anyone but Bush. I think the leader of a country (especialy a powerful one) should have a higher IQ than a frog.

    Bush works to fight terrorism
    It's not his fault the intelligance was false, but he had the right intention for going into Iraq.


    he fights terrorism when it suits his interests. remember that every politician has personal motivations; bush going into iraq could be well-intentioned, but who can say for certain. bringing war to a country shows a lack of compassion for that country's people, so how can you assume that he has the same compassion for you and me without calling him a rascist who favors americans to other people of this earth?


    If the war in Iraq was over oil, we'ld have more oil and lower gas prices

    not if texaco and arco stockpiled the oil and kept supply consistant with demand.


    Kerry voted against abortion.
    Abortion is murder. Any one considering abertion should put there baby up for adoption.
    Bush is pro-life.


    there is already a disgusting overpopulation problem on this earth. why bring more unwanted babies into this world, when that potential life never had to exist in pain?

    Bush is for thefederal marriage amendment.
    Marriage is meant for a man and a woman.


    there is a difference between seeking to keep a blessed union holy, and imposing your will on others. i hope you know the bounderies of these intentions.


    How do you determine "evil?" Between Kerry and Bush, Kerry represents the party for whom good and evil don't exist - "it's all relative."
    I can understand your rage against Bush, but how can you make an absolute statement about him?


    aboslute statements define what exists. without absolute statements, you couldnt say "the winter is cold" without leaving room for error.

    my feelings about bush are not a statement about his actions, but his motivations. If he invaded countries, ran down the economy, and oppresed individual freedoms with the pretext of helping the masses, and protecting the world from harm through the end results, then i might favor him. i, however believe that he(like many leaders before him) act in accordance with what will help sustain his own wealth and power. those are the motivations that i recognize in what is "evil".

    JOHN KERRY FOR PRESIDENT

    So you believe in absolute truth?

    "my feelings about bush are not a statement about his actions, but his motivations.

    So are you saying Bush personally ran down the economy, not inherited a recession from the previous administration? And what personal freedoms have been oppressed? And you don't think any of the decisions he's made over the last 18 months have put his position of power at stake? Do you resent that hospitals and schools have been built in Iraq, and mosques rebuilt, at US expense since the invasion?

    John Kerry creeps me out; that smile seems too ungenuine. [face_plain]All though I support the Republican party, I do not believe--judging from his credentials--that George Bush is the right man for the office of president out of the pool of possible canidates. :) My girlfriend would whack me for saying that. 8-}

    there was a surplus before bush came in.

    And what personal freedoms have been oppressed?
    two words: patriot act.

    And you don't think any of the decisions he's made over the last 18 months have put his position of power at stake?

    maybe he has, but he has more wealth and power to gain from invading countries. thats why he did it.

    Do you resent that hospitals and schools have been built in Iraq, and mosques rebuilt, at US expense since the invasion?

    no. but why should it be at the American people's expense, with Halliburton profiting off this? the war was started under false pretense, and the american people havent benefited from it; we've just had our soldiers killed, while our economy suffers.

    if you want to play the sympathy card, then why not invade china, india, africa, north korea, saudi arabia? there are starving, hungry, oppressed people there.

    the suffering of iraq has been popularized and exploited for bush's political gain. killing terrorists only inspires more terrorism and costs money. peace is what we need.

    As I stated at the start of this poll, this is not the place for discussing the candidates in depth.

    Simply indicate who you chose, and perhaps a brief positive reason why.

    Please take everything else to the Senate.

    No real American would vote for Bush. Doing so is one step short of all-out treason against the United States.

    It is the duty of every American who is eligible to vote to do everything in their power to ensure that Bush and any other traitor/anti-american/terrorist/occultist/pathological liar/mentally disabled/reactionary/neo-nazi/communist/ and/or supporter of the Bin Laden family presidential candidate does not under any circumstances take office.

    Between Nixon, Reagan, Clinton, and two Bushes, we've covered nearly every one of those previously mentioned classifications. Let's all do our part, and make sure that we don't beat the lame horse any more. I think America has suffered enough.

    I don't like Kerry or Nader, but as an American, it is my duty to vote for the one who has the best chance of beating Bush. I take that oath to protect my country every time I say the pledge of allegiance, or go to church, and I intend to stand by it.
