Sen. John Edwards is John Kerry's VP Nominee

Recommended Posts

Is this election going to be a 'lesser of two evils' type thing again, or is Kerry an actually good candidate to the American presidency?

I dunno, Kerry's not that bad actually. He's talking a lot of stuff that I personally like to hear canidates talk about but I know all that can change once he takes office. I'll have to do some research about what he's done in the past holding other offices but so far he's looking pretty good.

He's ex-military too, that's a plus in my book.

The one thing about him that worries me is that he hasn't said anything about the current war in Iraq. He hasn't stated any plans about how he plans to handle that, and that's a pretty big issue right now. If he was thinking about pulling out as soon as he was elected I don't know that I would agree.

Kerry's policy on Iraq

To establish security and move forward with the transition to Iraqi sovereignty, the President must show true leadership in going to the major powers to secure their support of Lakhdar Brahimi’s mission, the establishment of a high commissioner for governance and reconstruction, and the creation of a NATO mission for Iraq.

in this type of governemnt i dont think we can have a truely great man who can be a great president. every president i know have has made dumb mistakes that end up costing us alot down the road. example, iraq and modern terrorist. we gave them weapons and training to fight soviets. well at the time we were the lesser of 2 evils. i cant help but think that people we train now will be fighting us 20 years later.

Well, the Europeans are starting to hate us because of what BUSH is doing. And many other nations are hating us too. Watch Farenheight (Spelling?) 9/11 and see what the grieving muslims are saying about us. Bush has caused that.

I doubt if the world hates the USA, it's always seemed to me to be "The world hates US foreign policy".

Vote independent!

The opposite of a Democrat= a Republican.

Democrats are on the opposite side of the Republicans on the political spectrum.

Here's an example

<-Kerry-------------Ross-+-Perot-------------Bush--->
Left Right

sorry if that's a bad drawing but that is my version of the political spectrum

Politics used to confuse the shit out of me-- and then I saw Doomaddict's diagram. Now it's clear as day. Democrats are left-handed, Republicans are right-handed, and Ross Perot is ambidextrous.

Conservative Republicans are usually close to the far right wing (not extreme tho, even though some of them might "temper" their speech).
Democrats are what would be considered in Europe as "centrists" not really left and not really right.

US is notable because left wing people are not really allowed as real parties. Left wing includes communists (extreme left), ecology "green" people and the middle to center left people (close to democrats but more for the poor and middle class than Democrats).

I personally think that two parties only sucks, can you really call that a democracy?

What is the difference in what you said and what DA said?

I said the complete opposite of what he said. Seriously, the only differences between the parties are aesthetic. If you can't see that, then I'm sorry for you.

I see the democrats are using a highly contrasting election plan from what the republicans used; have your dumbass candidate run with a young creepy guy as opposed to an old creepy guy.

Voting independent in this election would in most cases boil down to a vote for Bush.

<---NADER------------------------------Kerry---------BUSH--->
VERY VERY LEFT---------------------LEFT----------RIGHT
People who are left extremists would vote for Nader because they hate Bush and don't know shit about Kerry. Well, in that case probably anyone who hates Bush and is reluctant to vote for Kerry either because they don't want to vote for a democrat, or because they don't want know enough about Kerry. So Kerry is losing votes that he could gain from people who want Bush out. A vote for Nader is a vote for Bush in the end, because *giggle*... does Nader have a chance?

Maybe people who vote for Nader do so because they know Kerry TOO well. I certainly would if I wasn't trying to get Emperor Bush out of office. Also,

<DAN----------------------NADER-------------------------------Kerry---------BUSH--->
SERIOUSLY, WTF----------VERY VERY LEFT---------------------LEFT----------RIGHT

That's where I am on your scale. :D
