Why is it that Bush supporters harp on "flip-flipping" constantly? I find it a bit immature. I lament that you can't see through Bush's lies, I truely do. Can you honestly tell me that you've never felt mislead by George W. Bush?

The majority of people saying those things haven't the faintest clue as to what's really going on; they just reiterate the campaign taglines that are drilled into their heads by the media and by those around them, using the statements blindly with the assurance that what they're saying is somehow substantial, or a valid point.

It's not. Get over it. The term "flip-flop" is ever more sickening as its utterance persists in its seemingly undying repetition throughout the presidential race.

As for the Draft, though Bush has been known to lie, I do not doubt the sincerity in his words when he states that it won't be returning. The internet is full of rumors; one shouldn't drape oneself in a false sense of security, but at the same time, one can not be suspicious of everything.

First of all.... hve you ever stopped to Bush was only running on the information his consultants were giving him? So... he was only doing what he felt was right with the information given to him... what would you do? He was doing what was right.... taking action before action was taken upon his country.... besides... who would you want for president:



Hehe.... just a little humor I found on the internet... cred is in the pic.

Oh...I get it, we should just elect whoever can play football, huh? And, I don't believe that Bush acted upon real intelligence to inavde Iraq. He told his head of counterterrorism on 9/12/01, Richard Clarke, to search for ties between Iraq and 9/11, and he didn't want to hear anything more about bin Laden. I'd say Wolfowitz and the rest of the neocons finally got their war in Iraq; it's got nothing to do with WMD.

"I will increase the wetlands by 3 million." George W. Bush (<- You want that man to lead our nation? O_o)

Brian...word limit. :-/

Oh man, on the debate on Friday, Bush was talking about the environment and stuff, as brought on by one guy. The first thing I thought was, "What a bunch of BS!" hey wait, I'll number them!

2. " Bush pointed out there was cleaner air since he was in the administration. Number of smog alerts increased in Toronto, which is indirectly connected to American air."
3. "Wow, that guy looks like he could bite Bush's head off. (lol, this one was jsut random)"
4. "Huh? Bush just said something about harvesting forests and about reforesting them (isn't that contrasting? You spend 1 dollar for every tree you chop. The net gain of this inudstry is minus 50 cents per tree.). I don't like the sound of that..."
5. "Hey Kerry pointed out that the Clean Air act is harsher than Bush's little environment act. That's right!"

Seriously, I can't stand Bush for lying through his teeth like that...and then get away with it.

btw, I don't know what happened with most of the rest of the debate, since I only heavily paid attention at the part and actually remember (some strange amnesia-type behaviour I have..).

Kerry stands pretty well on issues (minus flip-flopping ) exept one. He's pro-death
By pro-death I mean pro-abortion. That's why I couldn't vote for him if I was old enough. I'm a Christian, so I know it's a sin. And although Kerry talked about how he was Catholic, he is still wrong. People don't come before God.

God first
others second
you last

That's a common thing for Christians to remember, and Kerry is not putting God first. Abortion is wrong.
