    Americans have made their position absolutely clear; they are too scared to make any form of changes at this time. I do not like this decision, but I will respect it. However, before the world announces the end of the democratic party, a few parting facts.

    MY TOP FIVE BRIGHT SIDES OF THE KERRY LOSS

    5. The democrat's top supporter of stem cell research is STILL AAAAArnold, you know the "Republican/closet Democrat". He successfully passed the stem cell research bill, which removes the restrictions put into place by GW's "so called" stem cell research program, which has been shot down by scientists because adult stem cells don't show potential.

    As long as Arnold is governor, California will remain a democratic state. I see 55 electoral votes automatically going to a democrat for many years to come.

    4. Your FEDERAL government may be all REPUBLICAN, but how's your STATE???. Although we're down by one seat in the senate, the house of representatives, as well as the governorship of Tennessee, will remain with the Democrats. If your state government is predominately democrat and you voted for Bush, you'd lost!!! No matter what Federal legislation takes place, it still has to be approved by the state.

    3. Americans gave the Republicans enough rope, now watch them hang themselves. The Republicans still have a bad economy and a war to fight. This means that if the Republicans fail to improve our economy and end the war on terrorism in victory, not only will they lose in the 2008 election, they may never have control of anything for years to come. It's early, but it's safe for democrats to say "four more years"!

    2. Kerry can run again, Bush can't. In conceding defeat, and calling for healing, Kerry has already threw in his hat for the 2008 election. Since Kerry's term as senator doesn't expire until 2008, he can help democratic candidates in their efforts to win congressional seats, while at the same time, prepare to run in 2008. He can literally kill two birds with one stone.

    1. Who's going to run for the Republican party and beat John Kerry in 2008?

    1. Dick Cheney- no, his heart's not into it..literally!
    2. Bill Frist- No, he's a doctor, not a president
    3. Zach Wamp...

    Awww who are we kidding, a democrat will win the white house in 2008!

    Despite the loss, I'm happy to report a great win. I have young relatives and employees, who will be of adult age during this administration, that say that they will not consider military service as an occupational option. In short, they refuse to fight and die for a cause they don't believe in. Those who voted for Bush, that's your decision, let your children die for it; but don't ask me to send my children to die for what they don't believe in.

    "No bastard ever won a war by dying for his country.
    He won it by making the other poor dumb bastard die for his country."
    -General George S. Patton

    You're too funny (stupid).

    First off, I have NO problem with individual states passing stem-cell research if that is what they want. You and the other democrats seem to forget that we are a REPUBLIC and our system was designed so as to let the individual states decide what they will and will not do - for the most part. Stuff like stem-cell research, abortion, gay rights, legalization of drugs, et al should be made at the STATE level. That is how our system was designed. So you haven't taught us anything. A matter of fact, all your rhetoric did was show how IGNORANT you are.... too bad for you.

    John Kerry will never have another shot at President. The fact that anyone would want him to is just sad.

    Yeah, Hitlery Clinton will be running in '08, and of course a Lib would say anyone is better than a Repub.
    But not to worry, if she's the best the Dems can nominate, the republicans will be in the white house for 4 more years after this.

    Hillary Clinton is a joke. As far as John Kerry is concerned, who will oppose him? He can run again, Georgie porgie is a lame duck now.

    I'd conceded defeat, but the republican party has but FOUR MORE YEARS to prove that they deserve to run the country.

    With the Iraqi and the Afghanistan elections leading to no more than a contest to see which official gets assassinated next, I guarantee you that our troops will be in both countries when the next congressional elections come around. From there, the democrats will take back the congress.

    In order for George Bush to retain a republican congress, as well as assure republican control for years to come, the following things must be accomplished. Now these objectives were based on the huge "moral values" vote that made the difference

    1. Ban stem cell research
    2. Ban Abortion
    3. Ban Affirmative Action
    4. Install a conservative Supreme Court that supports moral values
    5. Win the war on Terror
    6. Balance the budget
    7. Lower Gas prices
    8. Provide tax breaks for the middle class
    9. Bring the UN back into our corner
    10. Ban Gay marriages and impede gay rights
    11. Dissolve some of the separation between church and state without leaning toward any one religion
    12. Shrink the federal government reponsibilities without placing too much burden on the state governments too early
    13. Establish some measure of peace within the middle east
    14. Avoid raising taxes
    15. Disarm Iraq and N. Korea of its nuclear programs without the use of force
    16. Capture Osama Bin Laden
    17. Stop other rogue nations from developing WMDs
    18. Liberate other nations, such as Sudan, that have people crying to us for help and freedom
    19. Clean up the television networks
    20. Fight to deny "Most favorable trade status" to nations that are in violation of human rights laws
    21. Control illegal immigration and make those who do enter legally, pay their share of taxes
    22. Fix the problems within the CIA, FBI and the justice apartment, concerning terrorism and overall crime
    23. Fix the problems within the voting process itself
    24. Consolidate our armed forces so as to prevent spreading them out too far
    25. Rotate our soldiers in and out of Iraq and Afghanistan, without any forms of very long term service or drastic recalls to service for those who's already served.
    26. Unite the congress so that any of the following things can be done without being blocked
    27. Rebuild his cabinet, with the possibility of binging in democrats, and still be an effective administration.
    28. Establishing a Palestinian state. (This promise just in from GW)
    29. Restoring all of the world's opinion of the United States, particularly within the Muslim world, to a more respectul position; this must be done without the help of Arafat, who appears to be dying.
    30. Do all of the following objectives within four years.

    Noticed that I'd said very little about education, domestic unemployment, goverment aid for individuals, the environment and overall health care, yet I came up with thirty items alone.

    I have one piece of advice for you; work with us democrats and concede some positions. You still will need 60% of the congressional votes; that means that you will need some democrats to vote for you in order to pass anything.

    You Republicans need to get cracking. It's around your World in a thousand days, and you're already 900 days behind. You'd made false promises; your bed has been made..Pleasent dreams. :sleep:

    1. Ban stem cell research
    He doesn't have to do anything with respect to stem cells. The current state of affairs is acceptable for most
    2. Ban Abortion
    Limiting it, and encouraging other options should be fine. Abortion will probably never be banned outright
    3. Ban Affirmative Action
    I don't remember him every promising this. But it would be nice
    4. Install a conservative Supreme Court that supports moral values
    He either will or won't be able to do that, based on whether or not anyone leaves.
    5. Win the war on Terror
    He needn't win it. He need only continue to prosecute it effectively.
    7. Lower Gas prices
    That is not under his control.
    8. Provide tax breaks for the middle class
    The tax break has been provided, now it will be made permanent.
    9. Bring the UN back into our corner
    No one cares about the UN here.
    10. Ban Gay marriages and impede gay rights
    I think the State Constitutional ammendment victories are enough. The result will encourage nearly every other state to pass a similar amendment in the coming years. A Federal Constitution amendment will be uneccessary.
    11. Dissolve some of the separation between church and state without leaning toward any one religion
    There is no required separation.
    15. Disarm Iraq and N. Korea of its nuclear programs without the use of force
    I have no problem with force.
    16. Capture Osama Bin Laden
    Would be nice. But marginalizing him is almost as effective
    17. Stop other rogue nations from developing WMDs
    That's the entire world's job
    18. Liberate other nations, such as Sudan, that have people crying to us for help and freedom
    Again, that's the whole world's job.
    23. Fix the problems within the voting process itself
    State issue.
    27. Rebuild his cabinet, with the possibility of binging in democrats, and still be an effective administration.
    Why bring in democrats?
    28. Establishing a Palestinian state. (This promise just in from GW)
    That's up to them, but Arafat's death could very well help.
    29. Restoring all of the world's opinion of the United States,
    Their opinion is their problem.
