Got this from another forum.
Go ahead and flame away.....I have thick skin :cool:
----------------------------------------------------------------

G.W. BUSH RESUME
- I was arrested in Kennebunkport, Maine, in 1976 for driving under
the influence of alcohol.
- I pled guilty, paid a fine, and had my driver's license suspended
for 30 days.
- My Texas driving record has been "lost" and is not available.

MILITARY:
- I joined the Texas Air National Guard and went AWOL.
- I refused to take a drug test or answer any questions about my drug
use.
- By joining the Texas Air National Guard, I was able to avoid combat
duty in Vietnam.

COLLEGE:

PAST WORK EXPERIENCE:
- I ran for U.S. Congress and lost.

took land using taxpayer money.
- With the help of my father and our rightwing friends in the oil
industry (including Enron CEO Ken Lay), I was elected governor of
Texas.

ACCOMPLISHMENTS AS GOVERNOR OF TEXAS:
- I changed Texas pollution laws to favor power and oil companies,
making Texas the most polluted state in the Union.
- During my tenure, Houston replaced Los Angeles as the most smog
ridden city in America.
- I cut taxes and bankrupted the Texas treasury to the tune of
billions in borrowed money.
- I set the record for the most executions by any governor in
American history.

father's appointments to the Supreme Court, I became President after
losing by over 500,000 votes.

So what party to you want running the executive branch for the next four years? Who do you want nominating/appointing the next Supreme Court justice? I can see you don't like Bush personally, so are you willing to throw the baby out with the bathwater? ... Cut your nose of to spite your face?

What is the alternative? Kerry and the liberal democrats? Say good by to your trails, your gun rights, and who knows what else. :(

Woody
11-01-2004, 05:20 PM
Yup....the world as we know it will come to an end if Kerry is elected. Just like it did with Clinton, right?

Call me a wuss if you want. I'm jumping off this sinking ship.........

Vote for Kerry and you'll lose your guns. Vote for Bush and you'll need them!!!

What's next; draft our children into an unprevoked war?

Who's next; N. Korea? Iran? After all; it is Bush who now states that he entered Iraq due to the threat of atomic weapons.

By the way; i'm a gun owner and I enjoy our trails. These two reasons are not enough for me to vote in Bush for another four years. :rolleyes:

I'm with you; Woody. ;)

Excuse me, but it was the Democrat party
New York Times
"All of the evidence indicates that we have exhausted our active troops," New York Democrat Charles Rangel said during the debate. "We are exhausting the Reserves; we are exhausting the National Guard."

Rangel introduced the bill in January 2003, but it had stalled in a House committee. He went on to explain that if the war continues without a draft in place, there will be no way to ensure that the burden of service will fall equally on Americans of all backgrounds, because those who volunteer tend to be from lower-income families."

that introducet the bill to reinstate the draft? :eek:
Who got us into Vietnam? :eek:
What was the last war that both Germany and France did not support? :rolleyes: (a:WWII)
Who sank the French Navy when Germany invaded ? :rolleyes:
(a: Britian afterFrance refused to turn leadership to allies :eek: )
The actions and rhetoric of Sadam give little evidence of being unprovoked :p
Allowing unstable (politically and financially) contries to have nuclear weapons does not promote sound sleep (for me at least)
Look at Kerry's record of action (or lack ther of)
give me a break

I wasn't discussing parties per say here; so what has happened with certain parties in the past is not significant to the present candidates in my eyes.

Bush has yet to prove Sadam was any threat to us while his story for attacking Iraq changes monthly. Bin Laden and the AlQuaida posed and acted out an actual threat. Where is Bin Laden and why isn't more military effort involved in finding these people?

I've seen Kerry's actions and i'm not happy with him either. He just seems to be the lesser of two evils.

I too am not comfortable knowing unstable countries have nuclear weapons and technology. So you suggest we attack these countries in the same manner as Iraq before there is an actual threat on the US? That makes us no better than the terrorist we seek. I'll tell you one thing....If we push our luck with N. Korea; we'll be in deep *****!!!

Why not work side by side with our allies and the UN to educate and communicate with these countries? Did Bush actually think he could stop an age old religious war dating back to biblical times?

Let's not forget our own undoings such as the Iran Contra affair and the sales of military equipment to the Saudis. Then there's the supplying of weapons to Iraq by Russia. Shall we attack Russia too? Is it correct for us to supply munisions to foreign rebels to benefit our freedoms and beliefs? This sounds alot like those who fund Al Quaida in the name of their beliefs. Two wrongs make a right? We may be a country of freedoms, but at whose expense? I love my country, but I also am realistic about the stunts we have pulled against other countries in the name of freedom.

Where are the weapons of mass destruction? Where are the nuclear weapons in Iraq? We all know what the official weapons inspector's report states. Two men from the same family attacking the same country...Hmmmmmmm. Coincidence?

Let's not forget that we had ample warning about the 9/11 attack and the "powers that be" chose to ignore them. It would only be natural for Bush to try to save face after such a blunder.

Where will the money come from for the next war? Where's the oil money that was to pay for this war? Why are we paying more at the pumps when we have untapped resources here in the US? All this in the name of big business and the filling of political pockets.

Let's not even get into the economy at hand. :mad:

One good thing here is that we can agree to disagree. ;)

Well said.

It's nice to see both sides of the argument on this board. It's been pretty one-sided for a while now.

How many resolutions did the UN have on Sadam? And what did they do? Nothing.

There has to be some punishment for not following the rules. He has just been permanantly grounded, the Iraq's liberated.

But, don't think that there were not terrorist. The same groups we are fighting are claiming the same reasoning that Al Quaida has.

Actually; it would have been nice to have two decent candidates this year. :rolleyes:

Also; it would be nice to see a Presidential platform that was stuck to by the letter. I hope and pray that Bush listens to the people and doesn't let his personal agenda get in the way. Maybe we'll get a good congress for the next four years. We shall see.

How much more deficit spending can the economy take? :confused:

Well unfortunately due to partisan politics no presidents platform is going to be stuck to by the letter. It just isn't possible.

But at least americans now get to work for what we have instead of relying on the government to setup a program and give it to us.

Guess you'll just have to work in a deficit spending economy instead of a tax and spend economy.
