Bush raises taxes for the poor, and lowers them for the rich. wtf o_O.

Guns are not meant for regular people...There'd be a lot less deaths if gins were to become resticted to only certain people. 2nd ammendment is outdated...
Where I live, almost no civilians own a gun, and it works just great.

and oh, you're right, Bush is so hot, he's like, WOW, *drool*. NO wonder he's against gaymarriage, I bet he has to literally hit the guys off of him. [/sarcasm]

oh and btw, altough I may seem like a bitter female dog now, I'm a nice person really XD. *hugs all offended people*

1. Not all true.
2. I think people should be allowed to have guns to go hunting, maybe start a gun safety class. :P
3. Lol, I didn't say he's hot, I just said he isn't ugly like Kerry. BTW, there are some teenage girls at my school who call Bush hot and say that they are going to kill Laura Bush so that they can marry him. Hey, if it was Clinton, they wouldn't have to kill Hilary!
4. Extremely inappropriate content

That's your opinion, but there are many ways to interpret the Bible, and no one interpretation is superior or more accurate than any other. This is a country consisting of people of many creeds. You can't just submit all American's to Christian beliefs, especially when it creates second-class citizens.

Kerry has said that he isn't going to raise taxes on anyone earning earning less than $200,000 per year. And guns? The less weapons around, the safer we'll be.

So? A candidates integrity isn't lessened by one person's foolish reasons. You just said yourself that one of your reasons for supporting Bush is because "GWB isn't ugly!!!!!! " I find that to be very hypocritical.

So, lemme make sure I get this: One of the qualities you think are important in a leader are looks? That just doesn't make any sense whatsoever. They're competing to be president, not a model.

You're last comment was not funny and completely inappropriate, kidding or not. For those confused, this was in reference to the deleted portion of the post

Michael Moore actually documented that GUN CONTROL INCREASES THE SAFETY OF THE AREA IN WHICH IT IS ENFORCED. Remember that gun control doesn't mean that nobody's gonna have a gun. It's just to make sure the guns don't run amock.

Right. That's a very common misconception among gun owners in the US.

Uhh...murder isn't so high over here in Australia, mainly because guns are not allowed. There are a lot of psychos out there, do you sleep better holding onto a gun...knowing there are others out there with guns?

All this christian talk, makes me think just how "free" America is! What about all the buddhists, hindus, muslims, and various other religions who don't believe the world revolves around a christian god.

Abortion...well, this is without a doubt a very touchy subject. I believe that abortions should be allowed for such things as incest, and more importantly disability. If the parents can not handle having a disabled child, then they should be allowed to abort. Another touchy one is teenage abortion. If the teens are stupid enough to not use protection then maybe they should have the baby, or put it up for adoption. Teens don't the funds for a child. Another one is rape victims, someone who didn't concent to sexual behaviour doesn't diserve to have the child of someone that hurt them.

The entire looks argument has to stop. Who cares, as long as the job is well done.

The war in Iraq is another reason Bush should not win the election. Until they have proof, they should stop killing the innocents. Sure, once a whole city is bombed no-one seems to care, but when ONE american soldier is captured and killed, everyone seems to worry.

I'm sorry to bush enthusiasts, but he has made some truly stupid decisions and statements. Anyone see the Sovereignty speech? He thought that it was a Sovereign entity You can tell the speechwriters are just standing there going "Read from the speech!!"

That's my opinion. If I were american, I would not vote for bush. What I wish would happen is if the minority got into office. Instead of the normal middle age caucasion man, perhaps a African American, or a Women, or a buddhist, or perhaps even a Afican American Women who is a Buddhist! That'd be a change of pace.

You, know what, all you Kerry supporters are really annoying me wth the "Bush is so stupid arugment" well, guess what? Bush's IQ is actually about 10 points higher than Kerry's. ALso, Bush graduated from Yale, along with HARVARD Bussiness School. So you petty little argument of Bush being ignorant is worthless.

I apologize for all of us Kerry supporters annoying you, JT. How about I explain exactly why I/we believe that he's incompent, to hopefully ease your state of annoyance.

I'm glad you brought that up, JT. You see, IQ has long been a controversial measurement of one's mental capacity. In other words, it's pretty much a test of mental potential. I judge Bush'd intelect from his words and his actions, not soley based on his Intellience Quotient. He decided to grant himself and his administration beyond the extent of the law, drove the economy into turmoil, spent more money than any president in 50 years, and spews hateful propaganda.

It is true that he graduated for Harvard and Yale, though I very much doubt that he was admitted on his own merits. When your father is George H. W. Bush, there's nothing money can't buy. Not to mention the fact that Bush has done almost nothing to show for the degrees he's earned. His father got him onto the executive boards of various companies throughout his early career, and he drove every single one of them into the ground.

So, in short, my argument that Bush is an ignorant fool isn't little, petty, or worthless.

Even if he didn't get in on his own merits (which you still have to have straight A's to get into Harvard even if you pay for it) He still graduated, which atleast means something. And Kerry is not exactly great with words either

You're right, Kerry isn't much better.

And know what JT? I'm sick and tired of people saying how morally great Bush is. BULL ****!

How's this for morals, going into a contry and taking their oil? Great morals, huh?

Or this? Goes in and kills thousands of innocent people? How wonderful are those morals?

And we're trying to set up a better government and all that crap? How about this, taking their only means of economics and damning them to an economic depression?

Oh, btw, Bush, have you forgotten about Bin Ladin? Here's a hint where to find him...HE'S NOT IN IRAQ!

Well...guess you know who I'm for...Go Kerry? =P

lol, I honestly can't asnwer that. =\ But, then again, should have been more prepared for that.


Well, here's my guess, because o_o I know, not much to back that up. =P but think of it from the market's point of view, basicly free oil, sell for more, make more. =\ Just my theory.
