i say vote for them regardless, it`s not about 2 halves, rather the choice
I recommend the book titled `Bias` by Bernard Goldberg, Regnery Publishing. Very good read; I`ll give you more details if you are interested.
If you`re going to go on public television and say something, think before you say it. I wouldn`t want to be in Iraq and hear that, because I`m there, I must have been a failure in life.
I really think we`d be safer now then we were back then if we elected Gore. Bush attacked Iraq for almost no reason at all. Osama is also still free. Like we really want to let our "allies" find him.
I wish I was old enough to vote for his 2004 run. If anything, any and all votes for him would hopefully convince other independents that running as an independent is a viable option.
It`s what our troops are doing around the world that allows John Kerry the freedom of speech he has, and if he wants to use it to prove how big a dumb piece of crap he is, then I will proudly defend his right to do so!
And Gore or Kerry neither one could have kept us as safe as we are right now!
Why dont you go run then?
Oh wait, I forgot, they`re doing a better job than anyone here sitting on their ass bashing them on the internet could.
Idiot President who got us in a war based on poo
and John Kerry who really can`t say anything about the situation.
But really if John Kerry won hell let`s say Bush lost to Gore because Supreme Court recounted the votes, could we really be worse off now?
yea i went ther
No wars for eight years. We had a war with Iraq both before and after Clinton`s run. The economy was in a surplus, now we have a HUGE defecit. Sorry you signed up for the military and didn`t like it, and I as well as everyone appreciates it I`m sure, but life was better back then.
am I cool now?
Seriously he should shut up before he disgraces Democrats any more. Yet I must also say this:
Nice burn, guys. Lmfao.
haha XD i didnt kno u were so fond of dying early
No, a single vote alone wouldn`t likely solve the problem, whether for Nader or other independent, but nothing is gained by voting for either a Republican or Democrat, which only acts to perpetuate the political rut in this country. If, say, enough votes for Nader were cast and he had secured a majority (both electorate and popular), we would have taken a major stride in a new direction.
I`m not going to allow social pressure influence the confidence or reasoning with which I cast my vote. I would feel better voting for an unlikely winner whom I support than voting within the same backwards political parties that polarize the nation and yield to the rich.
I like the way the American Bush haters are so quick to let Kerry off the hook by saying,
1) He was misquoted/misinterpreted/etc.
2) "Yeah? Well ChimpyMcHaliburtanHitlerBush is a (insert tired and bored accusation here.)
3) Clinton was great (even though he didn`t have to (or want to) cope with a world stage like the one we have now.
I understand your argument on why it is bad to let the country get stuck with two political parties that get more extreme day by day, but voting for Nader does not solve the problem.
P.S. I hope all of the liberal pansy idiots that have no idea what is going on get their head`s crushed by a semi.
If you`d like to deny that America is running itself into a rut by confining itself to only two political parties and therefore only "two" philosophies to solving problems, nawkshis, be my guest; I`ll hold you to it. The fact remains that both Republicans and Democrats utilize the same methods and are allowing no free thought, no original solutions to political and societal problems.
I`ve never been so proud to be from Minnesota. :D
Something wing-nuts hate to talk about is the fact that though the GOP loves to talk about how much they love the military, most leaders in the GOP ALL HAVE NEVER SERVED IN THE MILITARY, except Bush, but even there its doubtful he fulfilled all his Duties.
Cheney - Multiple Deferments.Frist - Never served.Hastert - Never served.Blunt - Never served.Santorum - Never served.Allen - Rooted for `Nam, but never found the time to go there.Rove - Never served.Gingritch - Never served.
But boy howdy, those folks sure love sending other people to die for their just war. Don`t they?
If he hadn`t run for president, nobody would even give a crap about John Kerry.
Plus, Kerry didn`t say they were dumb - the GOP said that Kerry said that they were dumb. But, because those soldiers seem to be republicans, they get this picture on the internet. Hmm, something is wrong with that.
Now, though Kerry wasn`t speaking to this, I have to say something that everyone in America knows but is too afraid to say because the GOP scream machine feeds on spin. It is a fact that the majority of enlisted soldiers come from economically disadvantaged backgrounds - the poor. Rich kids tend not to serve because $18,000 a year isn`t acceptable to them. Many of our officers join the military to pay for college. This isn`t a critique of the intelligence of our fighting men and women, its a demographic observation.
When the army gets bored... it does some of the best things ive ever seen!
Peace? Yeah right, my deployments to Haiti, Somalia, Kosovo, 2 deployments to Bosnia and getting deployed to Kuwait every year during the Clinton administration didn`t count at all.
Now it sickens me that all Right wing radio is talking about is this Kerry joke which was yes, was not good one even if he said it right. Would a man who served in Vietnam say something like people in the military are dumb? No, especially because of how Vets got treated when they got back from there, he wouldn`t want to do that to people today. Even O`Reilly said, okay shut up, it was a botched joke, get over it, Kerry isn`t a comedian.
Republicans are taking cheap shots, sad
How is that lucky? The only reason we`re even at war is so the Bush administration can have an excuse to void every little piece of the constitution bit by bit.
He`s like a redneck robot with bad circuitry.
Before anyone decides to attack this statement, keep in mind I`m not even suggesting Kerry would have been a good president nor am I supporting his defense simply because Bush is a child holding a gun. I just think his comment should have been criticized for about five minutes then dismissed. I love how dramatic and bored the general population is.
"If you don`t get a good education, you`re f*cked."
Being stationed in Iraq = f*cked.
The joke wasn`t appropriate but not so much because it was in bad taste, but it was presented to millions of morons known as the general public. Kerry should know better than to say anything that could dangerously approach anti-patriotic with the giant swinging penis of America judging every statement. Saying he simply disagreed with the war would probably yield moderately similar results.
Also, despite the fact that EVERYTHING out of Bush`s mouth borders on retarded, this was the best they could get on Kerry to embarass him. I find this to be more of a compliment than anything. When a botched joke becomes the center of attention you know you don`t make a lot of mistakes otherwise.
Kerry can go suck a big fatty
the pic is hilarious, carry earned this medal of honor
burlycow, if you are in fact serving or have served, thank you!
I find it amusing that I hear more and more of that for every election that happens.
Oh, and it wasn`t a misquote hydrotaoist. He botched a bad joke to begin with (although hearing it on NPR, I couldn`t tell there was supposed to be something else to it) and then said it was supposed to be aimed at Bush.
also, don`t be a hater! vote for nader!
