to you democrats and bush haters in general

Not open for further replies.
ROFL! Thats is pretty funny. I like Bush. If i were you i would go more towards the Republican party ( Right ). They are few. But by far they have the most practical and best ways to run our country. They wont let it run into the ground like Kerry will. Kerry claimed himself a hero in Vietnam and got medals. When he got home he threw them away and protests the war saying a lot of the soldiers in Vietnam were rapists, evil men. Which im sure some of them were. SOME of them. But most of them were brave young men, drafted or not. They fought because they knew it was the only way to get home, either kill, or be killed. They endured shit like no other. And this idiot comes back home after saying hes an "American Hero" and protests the war, insulting the soldiers he "fought" with. The things people say about Bush that are leftist hippie comments are usually made up. No joke. Or are paraphrased from something completely different. Im not trying to bash them. They usually are. How in the hell would Bush no about 9/11 before it happened?! WHY in the hell would he attack HIS own country?! I think you just need to look at the facts more and decide if its true or if they are lies. But Bush is a moral, Christian, self- controlled person thats from Texas, where better to get a president from than good ol Texas?!
Why pander to a political party at all? One does not need to be Democrat or Republican to be a good American .. in fact, a good American will not tow a party line, they'll look at all of the candidates (be it local, state, or POTUS) and decide on the man (or woman) and not his/her affiliation with a party. On the whole, Democrats and Republicans do not care about you. You're the little guy, you don't make enough money to contribute large amounts to their campaigns. Sure, they want your vote, and sure they may try and keep you happy. But you are not their main concern. When you're old enough to vote, when you've done your research .. you can make a choice to become a Democrat or a Republican. If you have to ask someone what you should be, then you aren't ready. If you decide to remain neutral, and look at everyone with a fresh eye .. all you'll have to do is register for that particular party, vote for the candidate .. then go back to being an independent, or what have you.

Until then, read the news .. and not just one source, read several. Research the history of the parties. Research former Presidents, Senators and what their views were. You are young, and can't vote .. but that doesn't mean you cannot become informed. There are too many voting Americans that are spoon fed their information already, don't be one of those.
best advice: ALWAYS pick the best candidate for the job. Whether he or she is black, white, yellow or green with purple poka dots. Whether he or she is a democrat, republican, whig, or a know-nothinger; choose the best person for the position.
As someone once said that if you're under 21 and you're not a Democrat, you have no heart. If you're over 21 and you find that you're still a Democrat, you have no brain.

I believe that was actually stolen from Churchill when he was talking about Socialists but it still applies.
I think that if there was someone running on issues and had the financial backing of the other two candidates, the Republican and Democratic parties would be wiped out.
I am voting for for parties I vote for I believe in my mind answers the questions that I have been pondering and talks of issue's that concern me.......that is how it should be not voting just because of party affliations
That someone was Winston Churchill.
I'm voting Kerry, even though I believe he'll lose (is HE the best the Democratic party can produce? Sheesh!) More importantly, I'm voting Democrat across the board to break up the monopoly the Republicans have in the house/senate. I think toning down Bush's aggression a little, and making him accountable for his actions to someone who won't kiss his arse, might make him a tolerable president.
LOL, yeah, we've NEVER managed to pay off our debts! This country has been in debt since about 1792. Don't get confused by "Deficit" and "Debt".
Deficit means we're spending more than we're making in taxes. Debt is the amount of money we had to borrow to cover the deficit. So If I earn $2000 this month, but spend $3000, my deficit is $1000. I borrow $1000 and THAT is my debt. If I do the same thing next month, My deficit is still $1000, but my debt is $2000. Get it? So while balancing the budget is a GOOD thing, it is NOT the same as paying off our debt. Of course, Bush has created RECORD DEFICITS AND DEBT, to the tune of:
$750 BILLION deficit,
$7 TRILLION debt. (NOT $700 trillion :oops: )
He's worse than my ex wife.
Oh, and the interest alone on our debt is about 5 times what we spend on education.
Considering inflation, what does that work out to in comparison to 1792, or any other administration of your choice?
hey tactical u have to be polite on this forum. all opinions r welcome, but insults arent.

Anyways Jamoni i dont think your math is correct because Clinton cleared most of our foreign debt.
my apologies

i tend to get .. aggitated when people misunderstand information.... i ment to say that he was wrong that is all..... thank you for informing me of my unkind nature

Did you read my post, MB? Clinton balanced the BUDGET, so we were making more than we were spending, and he DID pay off a portion of the DEBT, something like 300 billion dollars, but he did NOT pay all of it off, or even MOST of it.
Janie, LOL, great question! I haven't a clue.
I think it's funny that the GOP claims to be all about good business and financial growth, but can't even balance their checkbook. :?
Jamoni u wrote $700 TRILLION NOT 7 trillion. I know that clintion did not clear most of the nation's debt. Perhaps, i was misinformed about clinton clearing our debt to foreign countries, but he did clear some of it.
Clinton? Okay, let's talk about Clinton. A highly educated, well-versed, and professional spin artist extraordinaire... a/k/a bonafide ********. The spin was so professional and so masterful that he fooled the world for 8 years. Looking back on Northern Ireland, the Middle East, Somalia, Haiti, COPS program, about 99% of his foreign and domestic policy was absolutely smoke and mirrors... The true smart guys that kept things rolling and kept the public from looking deep into the heart of the administration were Robert Rubin and an inherited financial genius, Alan Greenspan. An economy based on non-existent income (highly-inflated), dot bomb (com), served to provide vast amounts of funding through capital gains taxes, federal income taxes, as well as state and local taxes... Money was flush, jobs could be had by anyone, and the public never questioned the true nature of the administration. And that is just scratching the surface. He really helped this country, yes siree!
