The following questions were asked on a different board. This board has more democratic followers then republican. So I thought I would ask the same questions here. I honestly want to see how those supporting Bush will answer, instead of how the Kerry Supporters bash it.


Why are you voting for Bush or not voting at all?

What exactly do you think that the Bush administration will accomplish if it's reelected?

What's so awful about Kerry that the idea of voting for him bothers you?

It will accomplish keeping Kerry out of office.

He is a socialist with the most liberal voting record in the senate.
Kerry would have the UN calling the shots for not only international foreign policy, but he would model domestic policy after the UN model. I'm not interested, thanks.

Perhaps tort reform, but otherwise very little and that's a good thing. People wonder why we are heading toward socalisim, and this is the reason. There is an expectation that the election of a president can make a dramatic change in peoples lives. The only way for this to occur is to grant the office certain powers that would seem dictatorital. I guess we just like being lied too with big campaign promises.


What's so awful about Kerry that the idea of voting for him bothers you?
Kerry is an opportunist. He's a non issue really, as he's no leader. If he got elected, he doesn't have what it takes to pass any agendas, especially under a Republican controlled contress. He simply doesn't ooze credibility. However, he is being backed by leftists who believe the nanny state is the proper form of government. These people must be stopped, as they would sacrifice the economy and personal freedoms on the alter of 'equity'. When everyone is a slave, everyone is equal.

Kerry has failed to present any reason to vote for him other than he "is not Bush." He's on record as saying one thing to one group of people and later saying the opposite thing to an opposiong group of people. He seems to do this with almost every issue. Where does he stand and what will he actually do? I doubt even he knows.

But the one thing I *do* know is how he will act with respect to guns. We desperately need to keep kerry out of office in order to preserve our RKBA. He is the most liberal member of the senate, even surpassing Kennedy. If the man is elected we will see worse legislation than we did under clinton. Just look at his voting record. He has never met a gun control bill he didn't vote for. The ONLY vote he made this past year while neglecting his senate duties was FOR gun legislation. He didn't show up for any of the others.

Finally, examine his past voting record. He has voted against almost all military and defense bills. The man voted to send guys to iraq but voted AGAINST the funding to provide them with body armor. He wants to "fight a more sensitive war" To me that means he will roll over for terrorists, for the UN, and for just about anyone else. Is that someone YOU wants leading you?

I like the way Bush is dealing with terrorism. He has got them fighting on THEIR turf, rather than our turf.

I think Bush will promote economic growth, rather than .gov growth. He will also strive to keep terrorists on the defensive.

Kerry robbed 2.5 million Vietnam Veterans of the respect they deserved by accusing them of atrocities before congress. How he is trying to turn the deaths of 1000 Americans in Iraq into a humiliating defeat, when we are actually pushing back the terrorists on their home turf. Kerry is the same anti-war activist today that he was back in the 70's. He fought the war, committed the crimes, accepted the medals and then turned around and accused everybody else of being worse than he was. I don't trust him, I think, in order to win back HIS popularity in Europe, he will undermine America's strength and slap down Americans for as long as he is in office. While born in the US, he is a product of Europe.

Bush has the vision to fight the current war properly. He will neither take the Clinton/Kerry 'international consensus' route, nor the psychotic 'kill-all-the-Muslims' route advocated here... He publicly advocates democratization of the Middle East, which is the only logical way to win.

Bush has shown the willpower to tell the vaunted 'International Community' to go pound sand when their wishes are contrary to the best interests of the USA.

Bush has a demonstrable record of being pro-gun.

Bush has a demonstrable record of appointing conservative judges, which we will need if we're ever going to see further roll-back of gun laws.

Bush has a demonstrable record of being pro-tax-cut, and is a believer in supply side economics.

WHEN BUSH SAYS SOMETHING, HE STICKS TO IT!

Now, if only he'd sign a bill killing the XM-8, he'd be *perfect*!



What's so awful about Kerry that the idea of voting for him bothers you?



I don't want to end up with a CINC that flip flops his way thru war (Today I like this war... Tomorrow I'm going to say it's a big mistake & try to pull out... Then on Friday I'm going to like it again)...

I don't want a President who's never met a tax increase he doesn't like, and never met a defense or intelegence program that he DOES like...

I don't want to see the Supreme Court packed with 8 more Ruth Ginsburgs...

And so on...
Link Posted: 9/30/2004 6:10:47 AM EST
3 reasons for me.

In order of importance to me:

1. Supreme court vacancies. I think it's important to have a president in office that does not believe the constitution is something to be interpreted. Bush will most likely appoint justices that will protect the constitution and our freedoms.
2. Second Amendment. I think we're all clear on who is better in this regard.
3. Economic philosophy. Kerry and the Democrats typically believe that the money I make is best spent by them. George Bush and the Republicans share the belief that people should keep the money they earn and spend it how they want.

If Bush is elected, I fear he will continue to strip away the rights of the common man. He is about as close to a monarch as we have ever come in the US, and I find that pretty scary. He has also shown that he has no idea how to maintain a good economy, and that he is really good at making enemies and breaking treaties. This makes me fear for my life, because I think he is just BEGGING to start a nuclear or biological war against the US.

For Kerry, I am afraid that I will lose some firearm rights. And that's my only fear with him.

So as you can see it is a moral dilemma...do I risk losing some small firearm rights, or do I put the lives of the nation at stake? How selfish am I? I think I'm going to vote for Kerry but that choice is more difficult for me than it should be.
Link Posted: 9/30/2004 6:26:02 AM EST
Mainly because I believe in his policies. For example;

I believe in individualism, self choice.
I believe in less Government regulation.
I believe in changing social security to allow people to manage some of their own money.
I believe in lower taxes.
I believe in school vouchers.
I believe we ought to drill in Alaska.
I believe in protection of the second amendment.
I believe in a strong defense and respecting the military.
I believe in the doctrine of pre-emption. Its about time we flexed our muscle as a country.
I like his management team: Cheney, Rumsfeld, Powell, Rice, Ascroft
I like a guy who has the balls to do what he says.
I am opposed to the internation criminal court and most other UN initiatives.

And lastly - I don't like the direction the left would like to take us in this country, I mean look at what's happening: gay marriage; no school prayer; no pledge of allegiance; no Christmas nativity scenes; some schools don't allow teachers to use red to grade students work or give normal letter grades; and all the other politically correct bullshit we have to deal with nowadays.

Sounds like youw want a managed economy.

and that he is really good at making enemies and breaking treaties.
Making enemies? Well, I guess that's true if you consider that a foriegn enemy is made when we do something that they don't approve of. What treaty was broken? Bush has simply not signed certain ones. This statement disagrees with your first one, as signing some of these treaties would bind our industry, and you can imagine what that would do for the economy.

3)He's more concerned with the security of this country than the hurt feelings of other countries.

I am voting and campaigning for President Bush because I know he is the best person running for that position. I trust the President to do what is best for this Nation and I believe his values are much closer to my own than John Kerry's are.

What is so bad about Kerry?
I know there are many good Democrats in this Country who are patriotic, law abiding and God fearing. I just don't see them in political office. It seems to me that the Democrats in office are Socialist or Communist, they want to "redistiribute wealth" by taking from those who earn it and giving to those who don't.

I don't believe most Democrats in office are tough enough on the defense of this Country, and they do not "defend the Constitution against all enemies foriegn and domestic" I know Democrats love this Country, but they also want to change it in ways that are unacceptable to me.
Kerry is the worst of what the Democrats offer.

God bless the United States of America.

Great post sum-rifle!

If having a wimpy coward for a ruler would gaurantee that nations security then there would be no "hostages be murdered" from any Country except the US, Australia, Great Britian and a couple others!

Clinton never tried to stop any terrorist. OBL tried to blow up the WTC the first time (while Clinton was Pres.) and failed. He then started the planning to attempt it again and suceeded the second time.

Taking out the leader of a terrorist organization does not stop the terrorism...but it is one less of the scum to worry about! When someone takes his/her place take them out also. Continue to repeat until there are none left that want to "Step up" and assume the position!
