I didn't vote for Bush the first time around and after he proved to be a disaster, I certainly won't vote for him this time.
Why I won't vote for Bush:
Four more years and women won't be able to have abortions, even in cases of incest or rape.
Four more years and stem cell research will be dealt a critical blow due to delays because of his personal religious beliefs.
Four more years and more money will be taken out of my pocket due to the rising cost of my healthcare and paying more in taxes.
Four more years of being penalized for living in a blue state.
Four more years of my sister, a teacher, constantly dealing with board of ed cutbacks, classes with nearly 40 students, the fear of being laid-off,
all because of insufficient federal funding.
Four more years of worrying about increasing global terrorism because our government's preemptive aggression and imperialistic policies are exactly
was inspires them to attack us.
Four more years of listening to BS about how we are safer when terrorism alerts are issued on a monthly basis.
Four more years of listening to lies about why we went to war in Iraq and why we will go to war in other countries (see PNAC.)
Four more years of contending with a unintelligent president that makes me cringe every time he opens his mouth. He publically admitted that he
doesn't read and has also admitted that he needs "received wisdom" from his advisors, mainly because he can't make decisions or analyse situations
by himself. This should be one of the main qualities of our commander-in-chief. The fact that he needs a team to tell him what is important is
pretty scary given the fact that every member of his team has their own agenda (again, see PNAC). It also implies that we really don't know who he
is and we are electing a fabrication created by his handlers. Based on the events that have taken place over the past 4 years, I would say that this
is rather dangerous as we don't elect his handlers nor his advisors.
Why I am voting for John Kerry:
Because he has identified the above issues as being problematic and will try to do something about it... and he reads, and writes, and can make a
decision without having to call Karl Rove....
I totally agree! Totally with you on that! I didn't vote for him either in 2000, and never thought of him even once as "my" president! Heck, in
four years, add to that, there will be a new branch of Christianity, that is mandatory and nationalized, called "Bushism". j/k
with that man in office, we have a dictatorship, not a democracy. Heck, we don't have one now, as we speak, we have a corporate republic. There
won't be an America to speak of in four years if he is elected. I am ashamed that he is from Texas, he has disgraced our state, and our
