if you take an honest look at both candidates, and forget about your party, but really try and decide who the best man would be to be President...I believe the choice is the lesser of two evils. They're both responsible for mud slinging and whats worse is, they both state they have plans...but the insult to our nation is....no one demands they lay their plans forward in presentations...we just accept the mud slinging.
Honestly I don't care what Kerry did when he was what? 20-24...we've all done things we're sorry for. Again I state, my brother was in Vietnam...I wanted to protest the war...but couldn't...how could I and look my brother in the eyes again?
We've become a divided coutry by this party thing...it's not about the party, it's about the best people for the position (s) and then it's our job to oversee....
Does anyone realize what issue presently faces our country...and no body is listening or even reporting about it. Immigration is so bad presently in Calif., Texas, Arizona...millions of people are in this country depleating our economy. Using our hospital emergency rooms which has forced 3 hospitals in Lancaster California to shut down. They aren't paying for their medical care...they're living off of welfare and they gain social security numbers for all of their sur names?????? Does anyone realize how many gangs have evolved from these illegal immigrants? Out there, Caucasions feel like minorites, crime is so bad that older people are afraid to go out??????
Can anyone imagine the ripple effect of this issue? Then on TV, they play upon your emotions to get you on their side?
I'm all for anyone who wishes to come to this country to live free...but I'm not for working against our community...but working with us...and don't change our language...learn ours! Children in school are having to learn to speak Spanish?????
Directions are printed in how many different languages...now TV programs?????
This is an insult the the people of this nation, and if you'd move to any other country, do you think, you'd be able to collect welfare, obtain free medical care, not pay taxes, obtain a job for less then minimum wage. You'd live by their rules, they wouldn't change them to accomodate them???? They wouldn't change their language, nor would they allow us to deplete their medical system.
If anyone here knows about this, please feel free to educate people on this dangerous problem...b/c if we don't, the effects of this, will cause many many problems down the road.
Its not about the parties...it's about the people and taking an honest approach to issues at hand...they've divided our country, and I'm not at all certain that it wasn't intended to be that way.
Both men are wrong...both repulicans and democrates have made mistakes...but the real problem is the people...they deny whats going on...they like to sit back and allow these guys to get away with this stuff and do nothing about it but point fingers...we all have to become working citizens of this US and it means getting involved...forget what party you are and demand this stuff be changed. Remind them, they're working for us...and it's our tax dollars...
I don't feel any safer now, then I did before 911, and if many of you saw what was going on with illegal immigration, you'd feel the same way. Its bigger then you would ever believe, and getting worse...
Whatever man makes the presidency...whatever your party is...people have to stop defending lies...slinging mud and get down to the issues at hand, openly and honestly. What scares me...big time, are the extreme lefts and rights...who are obsessed with their party???? And refuse to admit their parties wrong doings...
Both sides are wrong, and have been wrong...and it's time we grow up and stop fighting...we need to wake up and be part of the community
If we're short on vaccines, then what will we do if some contagious disease infects our country?
We're so vulnerable, everything is leaving and being outsourced?
Think about this folks, we're no longer self sufficient...all b/c of money hungry judges, and attorneys..politicians...and when ever you make a decission, for the specific gain of money...instead of how the decission will effect everyone...then, we're bound to loose???
I feel no safer now, then I did after 911...we're vulnerable...our infostructure is way outdated and dangerous, and there is no money to fix it...
Chemical companies are constantly experiencing leaks.....
Our economy is declining, our jobs are dissappearing
there are no regulations over anything, even price gouging?????? And shame those that do so!!!! Taking advantage of someone's dispair...
We've become immoral and corrupt...and we still don't get it...we still back our parties instead of standing together side by side and saying...wait a minute, I want to see agendas, facts and figures...stop this kindergarden mud slashing...
When was the last time you made a mistake? We're people, we all do, but admitting our mistakes and moving forward is becomeing the issue?
I don't mean to sound angry, or like a know it all, but the next four years, really worries me, if Bush gets in...
and oh, by the way, I voted for him...but now have registered independent...and if Kerry gets in and doesn't do his job in four more years then, I'll vote him out...in the meantime we have options, to get involved and realize what is really going on around us. I believe a lot of American's live in a dream state and fear saying, geeze I was wrong, or am wrong.
Hey, it's our fault, just as much as theres, it was and is OUR WATCH AS WELL.
Just my opinion and thoughts
Mean no insult to anyone
