Commentary :: DNC
26 Jul 2004
I am appalled at barbed wire to restrain protest...
at a bland, gutless, candidate chosen not for any
principles, he has none, but only for expediency.
Yes, we hate Bush, but this travesty of a democratic
party is no alternative and does not deserve to win.

Re: Outrage

I am totally with you on this. I am sickened by these A**holes expecting everyone to keep quiet about Bush...and the war....just go along with it everybody because you have no choice.

I absolutely HATE John Kerry, if I have to hear about his vietnam war hero status one more time...!!! He is no hero. He has sent his comrades to die for a lie and isn't even sorry about it.

Dennis Kucinich would be running away with this election by now. Fahrenheit 911 and Dennis Kucinich...and this election is All over for Bush. How is Bush still in the running anyhow? Seriously.

"How is Bush still in the running anyhow?"

Because, if your only choice is, "let's continue these policies," and, "let's continue them with 40,000 more troops," you aren't going to get very many people rallying to your side.

I am *really* debating whether it would be better to stick with Bush or go with Kerry. If Kerry is president, the only thing that would change is that there would be fewer protests. All the Dems would say, "WE NEED TO RALLY BEHIND OUR PRESIDENT!"

At least with Bush, there would be mass mobilization taking place. Maybe even a revolution.

The only thing I know for sure is that Kerry is no solution whatsoever. The Democrats have endorsed the protest cage for crying out loud!

This is what a press aide for the convention committee said about the protest cage and the pesky demonstrators outside: "There are plenty of other ways to make your voice heard other than protesting."

Remind me again how this party is better than Bush? Why do they deserve our vote? It seems to me we get to choose between two wings of the Fascist Party!

John Kerry is IMO worse than Bush. At least Bush is afraid of pissing off the 2nd amendment crowd. (I voted for Browne in 2000)

That said, they both are the same on everything else. Patriot Act, wars we don't belong in, free speech zones, NAFTA, GATT, etc.

The hell with them both. The entire constitution matters. I'm voting Badnarik.

Well ... uh... voting for the Democrats is better because they are ... uh.... not-Bush.

Yeah, that's the ticket. They are not Bush.

Vote not-Bush, everybody!

Remember, the war's not the only issue, here. Bush is far more *socially* conservative than kerry. Mebbe kerry won't fuck up the environment so much, won't be so big-business, won't screw healthcare even more. Wait, no, I'm thinking of kucinich. never mind.
