    I dont think they would be even if we did mistakenly elect Kerry. But my hope for the future of this country would be seriously damaged.

    Ya know...almost as much as I fear Kerry getting elected, that's not the biggest thing.

    Kerry elected will mean all the Michael Moore, MoveOn.org, I-like-dictators-who-give-free-health-care types will be VINDICATED. It will prove those hateful tactics and fearmongering actually work. Just think about it. Kerry's whole level of success in this campaign is not about all the good Kerry will do but the pure unadulterated hatred of George W. Bush. Go back to the Democratic primaries. Howard Dean is the symbol of their party. A ranting, raving, no-war-at-all-costs far-out lefty. That is who Democrats are.

    But Dean wasn't nominated.

    Why? Because the Dems knew that Americans would never vote for someone as shrill as Dean. Someone like themselves. Do you all remember when Kerry was taking the lead? Think back and remember the words from the Democrats. Were they all excited about his ideas? Did they like his ideas more than those of Howard Dean? No. They were going for Kerry because he was electable. That was the word I was hearing from them all the time. Kerry is "electable". We really like Dean, but Kerry is "electable".

    The Dems are not voting for Kerry out of love of Kerry. They are voting for Kerry because I think they honestly hate our President. They will deny this up and down of course. "I don't believe George Bush is a bad man! I think he wants what he thinks is best for America! Even if it's dead wrong. And favors the rich. Whom he loves more than our children. And our childish 'kids' in Iraq who were gullible and foolish enough to join the army when we were misled to war! And I don't think Bush lied! I just think he didn't tell the truth! We were misled by him!"

    I believe that when Kerry is elected his centrist platform will dissolve. He is after all, the most liberal member of the senate. I mean for cryn' out loud he once said that the U.S should take no military action unless it was approved by the UN! Of course the camp said that was after he got out of Vietnam and he was horribly scarred blah blah blah...But then came the debate and the "global test" remark. That just seems to scare the living shit outta me more than anyone else. That "global test" phrase came from the same Kerry who wanted to hand our sovereignty over to the UN. "We must pass a global truth standard". Only one problem. What the hell kind of judge of truth is the rest of the world? The rest of the world hates us. And they hated us long before Bush. Why? Hell if I know. Maybe it has something to do with us refusing to join their new-world-order global socialism cabal.

    But of course Kerry will still be tough on terrorism as he says, right? Of course he will. If we pass the Global Test. But we will never need another country's permission to go to war to protect ourselves. But we must pass the "Global Truth Standard". Somehow Gulf War I didn't even pass Kerry's "global test". I don't understand how someone could support that postion. Not even the most rabid democrats I know honestly do. But the welfare of America is ultimately trumped by one thing.

    Hatred of George W. Bush; and all things Republican.

    Holy shit that turned into a long rant.

    Goodnight :sleep:
