Is it really worth actually electing Bush this time around? I actually bought into the hype last time, but I
cannot do it again.
First off, there were major failures in the way he initially handled terrorism threats. I AM saying he allowed the attacks to happen and could have
done something. I AM not saying he did it due topolitical gain or complete and utter ignorance, but whenever you have this type of information, you
can do something about it.
Secondly, him and his adminstration has pushed through civil rights and spearheaded campaigns for legislation that LIMITS OUR FREEDOMS. The Patriot
Act is not good legislation my friends. Anything that limits your privacies and freedoms under the cloak of "security" is not a good policy. This
act is wrong and rumbling I have heard is that the Patriot Act II is about to hit legislation or at least parts of it. Is this the type of government
that you want to have?
Third, his brand new stance on ILLEGAL aliens is horrible. Some people talk about how we pamper CRIMINALS already, but do they support this crap? I
hope not. This is pampering true CRIMINALS. I'm not against Hispanics; I'm just against the government giving the fence jump and runners a legal
right to be here when they ILLEGALLY got here. This piece of legislation could be compared to making Drunk Driving legal. Everybody who has done it
or in jail for it will be released and forgiven. WHY??? Is this all for political maneuvering? Is this so the government can finally make money off
of the illegal immigrant labor? I would certainly love to hear the reasons for this.
Fourth, spending like a mad liberal with purpose. Enough said...
Finally, I have heard this one statement through the board and truly believe it. YOU EITHER GET A MODERATE LIBERAL NOW OR AN EXTREME LIBERAL IN 2008.
Right now, there is a huge amount of people who do not like, trust, or stand up for this administration and are angry. If there is another four more
years of this (what we have going on right now), these numbers will grow and grow and they will vote an extreme liberal who is completely far away
from Bush. Assume Bush does get re-elected and we do have fou more years of "eh?" and Patriot Acts, these people who are mad now will be irate in
2008. (That's a good slogan...irate in 2008)
That's all for right now, I'm going to class.
