It's been noted by a couple of members on this BB that there haven't been any threads supporting John Kerry for President. Well, here it is......the official NURSES FOR KERRY thread!!
I've said it before, but it bears repeating: the best reason to vote for Kerry, so far, is that he is NOT George "Dubya" Bush. Honestly, I don't know enough about the man yet to judge whether or not he'd be a good President, but I do
know that Bush is a terrible one, and I'd rather take a chance on Kerry than let Bush have another four years to continue his war on Iraq abroad and his war on the average American at home.
I've checked out Kerry's website, and I find I agree with him on many issues, such as making health care for all Americans a top priority and repealing the tax cuts for the rich, while leaving those for the middle class intact. As a life-long Westerner, I've always harbored a healthy skepticism of Northeastern liberal elite types, but I like much of what I've seen so far, and particularly if Kerry picks a good running mate, I think he not only can run a competitive race, but win it. The Bush administration's colors are showing more and more these days, and Americans are beginning to wake up and smell a rat.......there have just been too many unanswered questions and too many sneaky maneuvers made when Bush and his minions thought we weren't looking, and we're finally catching on.
Kerry is not my ideal candidate, but for right now, he's all that's standing between us and the ultimate takeover of American life by the right-wing lunatic fringe led by the likes of Pat Robertson.......the warmongers and corporate fat-cats led by Bush, Cheney, and Rumsfeld.......and the paranoiac Patriot Act advocates like Ashcroft.
KERRY FOR PRESIDENT!!
BUSH: OUT THE DOOR IN 2004
Apr 25, '04
I appreciate the fact that Kerry bases his stances on the issues on thoughtful consideration concerning what is best for the majority of Americans and our future.
I agree w/ him on:
1. Reproductive rights
2. The environment
3. Labor and big business
5. Fiscal responsibility
6. Gay marriage
9. Economy and jobs
11. Foreign policy and war
I really like the fact that he seems very motivated to win back the trust that many of our allies once had in us. And as other posters have stated, he keeps his personal religious beliefs in perspective.
He seems to want to be president because he is very distressed about the direction that Bush has taken us, and he truly wants to change things. He does not seem to be motivated by hunger for personal power, religious idealism, or to shape policy to benefit his rich cronies, like Bush is. Kerry has very strong negative feelings about Bush, as do I.
Of course, Kerry will make mistakes. Everyone does.
He impresses me as an intellectual, honest, sincere, moral, strong, thoughtful person who truly has the best interests of ALL Americans in mind.
Kerry gives me hope for our future!
