Kerry was the wrong candidate
17 Nov 2004
Kerry was an utter failure as a candidate. Kerry did not express a bold or unique message Kerry was Bush-lite. Kerry could not and would not take a firm position on anything (literaly so).

Kerry was often too buisy with his own life and lifestyle to fully engage in a presidential race while Bush pulled out all the stops. Kerry did not have even 20% of the comitmment Howard Dean did to progressive issues.

Kerry fancied the presidency as a feather in his cap versus a Dean or Kucinich who viewed a presidential race as a personal calling to work for others not promotion for the self.
Kerry Lost By Giving Up.

The Green Party will show the true facts from Ohio. As well as Nader from New Hampshire. The Republicans are total criminals.
To Republicans: Stick your religion where it don't shine!
Liars, criminals and closeted gay bashers! Yea you! Right wingers!

Kerry Lost because he attempted to the hide the fact that he has been a committed Socialist all of his life. He attempted to move to the center when Dean went left of him.

It really did not matter since given a clear choice, between a liberal and a conservative, Americans will vote conservative everytime.

The only way we on the left will ever is by running in the center right, winning and then governing from the left by force and allowing no further elections after that.

The people have proven time and time again that they are mere pawns and essentially disposable.

If you people are committed to the cause you will realize that the uneducated and the people who actually believe in a supreme being are too stupid to vote but are easily led.

We must never cede power to the lower class as they are too unpredictable. We must rule to keep them feed but not strong enough to overtake us.

We must realize that our systems that will help them the most will never win in a democratic vote unless we have famine and war.

It is pointless to waste our time trying to rule when we can never win at the ballot box. Government can only change by force and the peoples will be damned.
