With Kerry and Bush both having a similar education and fraternity background you know they'll share many ideals.
The big issues I see are our international deployment, taxes, homeland security, drugs/medicine and the economy.
Democrats want less forces overseas while Republicans want to take care of business, I dont think we can pull out and leave a country unstable or
worse, giving an enemy more power.
Taxes, where do our tax dollars go? The country needs the funds to run a country and keep the military strong no less. There is such a thing as too
low of a tax because the country will run out of resouces. Tax breaks encourage weathy people to develop more land.
We need to be safe from major terror attacks and already have preventative and "cleaning up" plans in place, it is right to see the next one as
innevitiable. We have the CIA, FBI, and DPo Homeland Security to deal with intelligence threats,why 3? Every big coroportion/government is prone to
corruption and with 3 we got more problems. We also have other important groups like Red Cross that clean-up after an attack or natural disaster, we
cannot forget how portions South Florida was in anarchy after Andrew in '92, civil unrest in tough times is going to happen. Part of Homeland
Security needs to take care of the gang, crime, and drug trafficking rings that is already here.
The masses are addicted to medicine and drugs. Seeing a family Dr. in a timely manner has become impossible, Dr offices are extremly busy constantly
and the common man cannit get meds in a timely manner. We need more professionals who are able to prescribe drugs or the nation will continue to lose
business to online oversea pharmancy's. Prescription drugs like opiates are also a problem because of addicts. Addiction needs to be addressed and
The Republican conservative view pretty much says we cannot preserve or natural resources and expect out economy to continue to grow. Developing
wooded area does create jobs, but those are only temporary. The Democrats want more safeguards for the enviroment and know that jobs more long term
jobs can be created and government projects and funds will create employment oppurtunities. The Green party represents the need for more enviromental
friendly practices. I wanna see more re-development of run down areas and more conservation of the wildlife.
Maybe this year the canidates will be able to openly express where they want to take the US. 2000 meat-puppet show has laughable and there is no
wonder why so many cried foul when they couldn't accept the outcome. Gore lost the electoral college end of story.
