GUEST,Frankham BS: Whats worse than Bush in 2004 (110* d) RE: BS: Whats worse than Bush in 2004 07 Nov 03

It doesn't make much sense for me to try to add anything here.
But I feel I must speak out. I don't think it's about the]
person who I don't really know or care to much. It's about the policies as Kendall has said.

As to the cabinet of the Bush Administration, Al Franken has
called them "Chickenhawks". That is, it's easier to make a war policy than to participate in it. It's the old cliche of "Let's fight, I'll hold your coat." War is a terrible, horrible and
awful thing and it doesn't offer any solutions to how people can live together in peace and justice. There are those who will get rich from war because that's justified in their minds. I'm thinking
of the infamous "Golden Triangle" of the Pentagon and the private corporate sector. This would include the Bush Administration's current cabinet. These men are dangerous for the country because
they are immoral. They are making money from the deaths of
innocent Iraqi women and children. They are making sure that
the working people of this country will not see the benefits
of their labor. They can count themselves amoung the wealthy
in the "class war". This "war" was created by the Bush Administration and Reagan and Bush Senior. There are people who
are working at manual labor jobs who are trapped in them because there are no places to retrain since money hasn't been allocated for them to do so. The destruction of the welfare system has meant that
poor hardworking Americans don't have decent paying jobs and can't
raise their kids on the money they make and the time they can
spend with their families is limited since they work long, hard hours for little money....a disgraceful devaluing on the minimum
wage in the "richest country in the world."

The public school system is being gutted by Bush and
his cronies. Only the wealthy will be able to receive a decent
education. This is anti-American. Anti-democratic. If this happens, then bin Laden and Saddam have beaten us.

We need a president who is responsive to the needs of Americans
and not a spokesperson for Haliburton, Harken, Enron, and the
gutting of the Texas and American educational system.

A word about Libertarians. We need a strong, moral federal government to protect us against the selfish, self-serving
Libertarian movement who would cut off the necessary funding
for deserving African-Americans, Hispanic and poor isolated
others in the citified ghettos of the US. Their representative
on talk radio spews his vitriol daily. Neil Boortz. A bully who
allows no contradictions to his madness. If people don't want to
pay taxes for educating those who don't have a chance in this
country, or helping them find decent employment, then bin Laden
and Saddam and Bush have won.

End of rant but I'm a folkie who has strong feelings about this
kind of thing and probably should keep my mouth shut but it's just
too painful not to.
