I see politics these days as more cut-throat than ever, especially since the 2000 recount debacle.

While I will vote one way, I will say this: Whoever wins will have my FULL SUPPORT as an American citizen as long as he leads us.

Can you honestly say the same? If so or if not, I'd like to know why. The following is my opinion, which you can agree or disagree with:

We must become a UNITED States again - before we split so far apart that we crumble. How does the old saying go?

"United we stand; divided we fall."

Looking for your opinions...

If it's Bush, no.

I will not rally behind someone who will demand me to sign a loyalty oath.

I will not rally behind the man who cuts funding for research for science.

I will, instead, encourage the other parties to find better candidates and I will rally behind them.

I would not rally behind bush you have to be blind to see what he stands for and what he has done to our country and to Iraq.

And for Kerry I will rally behind him untill I see if he comes true to his promises, if he does not then I will scorn him just like I have done to bush during the election time.

I hold no loyalties to any political partie I am just loyal to my nation and my nation's well being.

Another question for the peeps who answer this thread... if you've decided not to rally behind the winner, how do you plan to express that non-rallying?

I do not intend to rally behind either man. They are both liars and they will both try and steal the election. I will show my non support by ignoring them and not calling them by the title "president". It will be strictly Bush or Kerry. Or Mr. Bush or Mr. Kerry. We have been without a leader for the past 4 years. I guess 4 more years of a fake shouldn't make much of a difference.

If it is Kerry NO! I will fully support the majority in the Senate and the House of Representatives, which will both be Republican.

Unlike democrats during Bush, I will not wish harm on our troops and our nation. I also will praise good economic news, unlike democrats.

The only good side about Kerry winning, will be that Hillary will never have a chance to be President!

But being that Kerry never had a chance, all this is mute.

If Bush wins, I refuse to rally behind him. I will express my refusal by not saying the pledge of allegiance or supporting his actions.

natas - Yes, you're right. United we stand, divided we fall, but look at the days after 9/11. Our country was the most united country on the earth, but a few years later, we're divided right in half. Whose fault is that?

If Bush wins then I will be sad for my country, that it contains enough idiots to vote for this inept president once again.

I won't go out of my way to show my disdain for Bush if he's elected again since that won't help the matter. Most likely I'll just go on with my life like normal

Damn right it is!


But seriously, I'm not trying to blame President Bush here (even though it seems like it, I should of done a better job of implying that in my post). I'm just saying that it's our fault as Americans for dividing ourselves, and for letting ourselves be divided.

Bush, NO! Kerry, a resounding YES YES YES! If Bush wins, I wont be able to believe a word out of the presidents mouth for 4 more years
The upswing is if he wins, then in 2008, maybe we can get Hillary in office!
She already ran the country for 4 years, or so the joke goes

There is no way I will ever support Frau Bush. I don't much care for Kerry either, but I would sooner support him in hopes of maybe getting back to what we had before Bush went and screwed it all up. As for showing my displeasure with Bush when he claims the office again I've been considering moving to a different country; I would hate to sit here and watch him ride this country like a flaming missile into oblivion.

I am seriously worried about the US if Bush is re-elected. This has nothing to do with the OBL video, but the sentiment rings the same. His policies, IMHO, will destroy this country. Plain and simple, before Iraq, we knew N. Korea, Iran, and all those in this "Axis of Evil" had or was acquiring Nuclear Weapons. But yet we are in negotiations with N Korea, and the EU, with the backing of the US I am sure, is negotiating with Iran. I thought we did not negotiate with terrorists. I strongly feel that Bush will put us in WWIII, with us as the bad guys, sooner than Kerry would. While Kerry is unproven, It might buy me sometime to move to Mars or something. I just feel alot of Bad things will happen if Bush is re-elected, If he is, I hope to God I am wrong. Anyone in Australia need a roomate?

If Kerry manages to steal this election (ahem, voter fraud, lawyers, etc), I will be launching a campaign to recall him (can you do that for a President?)

In recent weeks, the Democratic Party, and Kerry's campaign especially, has taken fearmongering and scare tactics and overpromising and shooting for the moon, say whatever to get a vote politicking to new lows, and if he wins, we're in worse trouble than if we reelect Bush.

I will not support a false king.

didnt Bush do that in 2000?

That is from BOTH sides. Dont make Bush out to be some angel in this election.

You already do. He did not win the popular election in 2000, and relied on a republican court to appoint him as commander in chief.


Kerry is no knight in shining armor, and yes he is unproven, but I would rather give a new voice a chance to run this country. We already know John Kerry cant do any worse than Bush. I dont think its possible.

If Bush is elected, I will start voting straight Democratic on every vote I make. I have always voted for the best person for the job and not along party lines. That will change if Bush wins.

Whoever wins will have the normal support I believe is my duty as an American to provide the elected President. To do otherwise just leads to more of the same division that we've seen since the 2000 near-fiasco.

While I'll probably vote for Bush, whoever wins it would be the best thing for our country if it's by a wide margin. I think only a clear mandate can save our political system at this point.

I think there is NO logical reason to support a leader you do not agree with. That is the same type of thing that keeps people in chains.

I will support neither candidate, and I will oppose them with great emphasis.

They do not have my vote OR my support.

So, let me see if I understand you. Do you not want whichever man is elected to do a good job?

Whoever takes the oath of office next January is the Commander-in-Chief for the next four years. That man deserves my respect and the respect of all citizens.
You may not like the occupant of the Oval Office, but you need to respect the President, if not the man.
A lack of respect does not make for a united nation. To disrespect the President shows the country and the rest of the world that we are inching closer to chaos.

Ehem...in the event that Bush is elected, I will make it part of my personal duty to have him impeached by whatever means necessary. Technically this shouldn't be too hard since his actions have legally made him liable for impeachment. Otherwise it would be quite a battle to have him removed considering the divided nation. Hell, I might decide to forget that and just move to Canada where the people tend to err on the side of sanity.
