  • Why John Kerry Can Lose

    He's smart & good-looking. He's both patrician, Jewish, Irish, Oxymoronic in American establishment circles. He's rich, my, he's rich! If you include his wife's BILLION, they would be, by ten times, the richest presidential couple in history.

    He hasn't enunciated any particularly novel proposals in foreign policy - certainly none affecting us in Asia - but, if only because he would sweep the White House clean of its scallywags, he would stop the rot.

    He may claim to have only trivial differences with Bush on Iraq; but everyone knows he's a julti-litararist & would never have gone almost alone into the present war, as hte neo-conservatives surrounding Bush demanded.

    Economic policy would go back to fundamentals, & at least, huge handouts to the rich would end. Yet even with the polls showing at a tight race, most pros, including those around Kerry, still seem to believe that Bush can win.

        Bush and Cheney made a great point during the convention. Kerry voted for the use of force in this war, yet he voted against $87 Billion to buy bullets and body armor. I support our troops therefore I can't support Kerry.

          Well atleast if Kerry wins, they airlines will most likely get back to where they were a few years ago. I have a feeling that Kerry is going to win, he has one if not the largest group supporting him- ALPA.

          As for what i got out of my Political Science Class, my teacher is Tim Buchanan, he used to work for Colin Powell.

          John Kerry- Wants National Healthcare- Disagree, lets not F**K up like Canada and all did
          Wants to repeal tax cuts- SO/SO lets get out of national debt.
          Pull out of middle east- Agree, once Iraq is done, lets get out of there.

          George Bush- Wants to esentually take over the world- Disagree-Hitler
          Keep tax cuts- SO/SO, nice to have more money, but our economy was better with Clinton
          Keep healthcare as it is- Agree, screw this everyone gets healthcare, because in reality its not true, because then everyone will go to the doctor for a cold or what not, and that means, nobody gets healthcare with overcrowding and a lot lower quality of doctors, much like Canada and a few other countries that have this.

          So therefore since either way, the United States is screwed, im not voting.

                  Another good point made during the RNC was that you need to know your leader. I know Bush's mindset and philosophy. I dont know crap about Kerry other than he says one thing and does another. (IE Voting for war and then voting against the 87Bil.) So Chris, your not voting at all? Then you have no right to complain at all about the government for the next 4 years. This will be my first election I can vote in and I'm not going to blow it off.
                  It's a Jeep thing, you wouldn't understand.

                              He's smart & good-looking.
                              Smart? He can't even pronouce the names of his allies countrys. He looks like a monkey as well.

                              I agree with emu, they are both schmucks, exept bush is a bigger one.
