What does this convention mean to you?
Well, I could put it this way: The Democratic National Convention has scared me into voting Republican.
I was a bit undecided before. Maybe I wouldn't vote at all, since both Bush and Kerry sucked. But after a few days of the DNC, I realize that Bush
may still suck, but he sucks much
less than Kerry.
I've watched as much of the DNC on TV as I could, picking up what I missed on both Fox News and CNN when I was away at college or at work. This is
what I've gotten out of the DNC so far:
-Bill Clinton is still a talented man and a good speaker, but I didn't like his policies when he was President then, and I don't like them now. (No,
I didn't care about the affair he had with that intern -- I cared about the supercomputers he gave China.)
-Al Gore seemed angry and bitter in his speech. (Was it because of the 2000 Election? Or because he didn't the nomination again in 2004? I don't
-Mrs. Kerry is a scary
woman. She looked like she was drugged up during her speech. Her speech was mostly incoherent rambling, but the parts
where she spoke multiple languages (ending the speech in French) told me volumes -- she's an internationalist, not an American. The U.S. is a tool to
her, not her home. (There's nothing wrong with being able to speak multiple languages -- I wish I could myself, actually -- but the when & where she
decided to let it all out was inappropriate, IMO.)
-I have yet to hear anything on Sept. 11, 2001, Osama bin Laden, or al Queada. Are the Democrats pretending none of it ever happened?
heard plenty about Iraq and Saddam Heussein, though...
-When will Kerry actually tell us what he's going to do specifically to make the U.S. and the world a better place if he's elected President? He
must not want to tell us because either (1) his plans are too extreme to get him elected if they became well known; or (2) they're so close to
Bush's plans that he'll upset those who are already planning to vote for him if that got out.
-Why is there a media blackout of the Berger case? A man steals top secret documents out of the National Archives, and he doesn't get news coverage,
or jailed? He should be in jail right now, getting ready to be put on trial for treason under the US Constitution...
After Mrs. Kerry's speech, I decided that I was voting for Bush.
