If the economy is not turning a corner...<br>If Iraq is getting more dangerous every week we spend there...<br>If global terrorism is on the rise...<br>If there are deficits as far as the eye can see...<br><br>... than why should anyone vote for George W. Bush?<br><br>-- Charlie Alpha Roger Yankee Whiskey<br>
because healthcare insurance premiums have risen almost 3 times as rapidly as earnings under dubya: <a href="http://washingtontimes.com/upi-breaking/20040928-123630-6256r.htm">link here</a>. oh, you were looking for evidence to support re-election. nope, can't help there.<br><br><br>--<br>one of the penalties for refusing to participate in politics is that you end up being governed by your inferiors. -Plato
You see, that is why I feel like I'm living in the twilight zone. I understand that hardcore religious folks would vote for him, and so would extremely rich white men. They have vested interest in his policies. But, how on Earth he sways so many other voters is the real mystery. <br><br>It think they like the arrogant non-intellectual attitude, as well as the I-won't-back-down-from-a-bad-idea routine. If I could ask a question at the debates it would be:<br><br>"President Bush, what mistakes have you made during your presidency? What decisions led to those mistakes and how do you plan to repair the damage?"<br><br>

I know I don't understand it myself. Perhaps its people who are apathetic to the situations of others with the if it doesn't effect me it doesn't matter attitude..RINOS =Republican in name only or some people feel all presidents should serve 2 terms.<br><br>I'm going 25 years old and this is going to be my first time voting . I was fool to have not paid attention to this sooner, but you know what now I know have the power to change whats going on.<br><br><br><br>
Would never vote for W. Didn't the first time and won't this time either. But tell me, why would I want to vote for Kerry? I don't plan on voting for him either--but at least he has a snowball's chance in hell for me to vote for him (W ain't even got that). <br><br>I'm probably writing in Nader. I'm so sick of politics-as-usual that there's no way I'm just voting for another corporatist in a campaign suit. How does the saying go... "the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result." Well, I'm done with the whole two-party thing unless there's some major upheaval in one of them. They're bought, their owned and they have too many obligations to political ties.<br><br>
Heh heh, there is no doubt that there are rich white men that don't vote republican. I was only pointing out that, in general, it would be in their financial best interest to do so. The fact that some don't use their influence and vote to put more money in their pocket (at least not in national politics, board rooms are another story ) is encouraging.<br><br>
You might keep in mind that there are thousands of corporations, many of which are not public, that are excellent neighbors and local benefactors. Are the owners rich? Usually. Are the owners Republican? Some are. The good rich, regardless of their politics, know, to paraphrase that crazy Ross Perot, that money is like manure...if you spread it around it makes things grow but if you pile it up it stinks.<br><br>The richest white guy in my county – he has been the primary mover, shaker and benefactor in our city recently – quit high school, started his own business, and is now in the Forbes 400 (which he laughs off). He has also set many others up in business, nationwide. He did have a big advantage, however, no MBA degree or intellectual qualifications (that might make him Republican but I couldn't say).<br><br>It's a shame you communist pinko liberal intellectuals can't get over the fact that some people actually deserve their riches.<br><br>
