We REALLY need to get the third, fourth, and fifth parties more involved in America. It's vital to our best interests. Independants, Greens,
Libertarians, all deserve to be heard and to have us be able to choose from them. They 'aren't Bush' either.
I agree with you 100%. That's what's needed.
There is one concern howefer, that there are urgent problems that we'll be too late in solving if another few years pass under the current
administration. I'll spare the Iraq issue because it won't be solved by anyone by now, including Kerry (because he won't pull out).
The tax cut should be repealed. How can anyone consciously look at the nation that's racking up debt at such astronomical rate? That mean that
instead of investing in education, healthcare and in fact the military, the US will be busy paying off interest for foreseeable future. Most people
know little about finance unfortunately, even in the form of the credit card (look at how many people abuse credit), that's why there is a sense of
complacency. Every time people cheer about "democracy in Iraq", I feel like asking "who's paying for it?". If your kid can't go to college in 5
years from now, if you won't be able to afford medicince when you retire, if there are more intellignece failures because some program was
underfunded, that'll be because we are going BROKE for God's sake!
Of course there is silence in the media about this. The numbers are published but the masses have problem with math, so it all goes unnoticed.
If there was one reason at all to vote for Kerry, (there are some others), that would be it.
I don't like Kerry. But if he cuts the deficit, I don't mind if he vacations in Cambodia between 1968 and now, under President Roosevelt.
