    The only thing I notice is these people won't say who they are. At least when Democrats attack Bush we say who we are.

    Other than that this entire site is one giant piece of :poop:

    I don't think it's crap. It simply is a pro Bush website telling people about Kerry's hideous tax record,and Bush's tax cuts....what's wrong with that?

    His attitude reminds me of the old Mike Meyers skit on Saturday Night Live "If it's not Scottish, it's CRAP!!!!!"

    I especially like the comparisons between Kerry's and Bush's record of charitable giving....

    Wow...I even give more to charity than sheister-meister Kerry (and in some years, so did my kid!). It reminds me of Al Gore's charitable giving (one year he gave a whopping 35 dollars to charity).

    I'd love to see that as a headline "Kerry charitable giving surpassed by most kids"

    Rather than spout unfounded comments, how about you invalidate the data given? How much on that site can you show us that is falsely reported about Kerry? The only way it can be 'poop', as you refer to it, would be if it is useless and/or false. I think it's all damn good reading and very telling about Kerry. Most of what I read is backed up with reputable sources and facts. I guess it's 'poop' because it makes the democrat golden boy look like a 3rd rate candidate. :rolleyes:

    Let's consider things...Under Dubbyuh, the budget deficit is spiralling out of control. The number of peope living in poverty has increased for the third year in a row. The number of uninsured in the country has risen for the third year in a row. Revised budget figures paint a less rosy picture than the Administration would have us believe. Osama bin Laden remains at large, and Dubbyuh doesn't care. We are embroiled in a war that should never have been undertaken.

    Now, is Kerry really scarrier than Dubbyuh? I think not.

    Is it? Just because the tax rate has been cut does not necessarily mean that government revenue decreases. This has two historical precedents. First, the Reagan tax cuts of the 1980s actually INCREASED government revenue because taxable economic activities in effect were now cheaper. Second, in 1994, the Republican controlled Congress cut the Capital Gains Tax, which encouraged stock trading, which helped to push up the value of the Dow Jones Industrial Index, which increased the amount of government tax revenue, which provided the first budget surplus in over 30 years.

    So if more people are living in poverty, the government should do something about it? OK....let's cut tax rates even further! That way companies will be encouraged to keep their business here in the US instead of shipping it overseas. Increasing taxes as Kerry intends to do will just make the number of poor and uninsured increase.

    Secondly, the number of uninsured people in the country increased due partly to the fact that benefits are so expensive. That is partly because of costly litigation undertaken by people like Kerry's running mate and the Trial Lawyers (one of the biggest contributors to Kerry's campaign).



    So? Osama bin Laden is one man. Getting OBL would be mostly a symbolic victory. The real victory will come when the support structure for international terrorism is dismantled. That is slowly happening.

    As for the Iraq War ..... there is increasing evidence that Saddam Hussein was indeed supporting terrorism and had WMDs (in fact WMDs have been found). All but the most blind can see that.
