Well, since I'm not only going to vote for Kerry, but actually volunteer and campaign, I thought I should be able to say why I like John Kerry's stance on the issues. I should say a couple things first though, I know Kerry seems to flipflop, but he's the most liberal member of the senate so I think we all know where his true core values are. Secondly, if Nader was viable I would vote for him, not because I like his views on all of the issues, but because he's not a phony like Kerry and Bush. Hell, I liked Kucinich a lot just because the guy had solid beliefs. So not thats out of the way, here are a few reasons I like John Kerry(This won't have any Bush bashing to show I'll be voting for Kerry instead of against Bush ) 1)If we continue down the path we're on, at the end of the century the face of the earth and the climate will be severely different, due to global warming. Kerry says he will begin to lay the ground on a hydrogen economy(my dream come true!) which he wants going by 2020, a pretty good date. Kerry also wants to raise the number of miles per gallon to 36 by the year 2015. He also wants to lower the dependence on foreign oil, but he doesn't want to drill in ANWAR. 2) The "No Child Left Behind Act" will now be funded. 3) Kerry claims he can get the UN to help us in Iraq, but unless he's willing to let France, Germany and Russia off the hook, I don't buy it. But he does want to get NATO involved and more troops into Iraq, then again, so does Bush. 4) Kerry will repair the damage that Bush has done to the Clean Air and Water Act. 5) For Homeland Security, Kerry wants to rollback the taxcut on the rich and begin paying for certain Homeland Security issues, like increasing the number of "First Defenders", creating a volunteer gov't organization against terrorism, protecting vulnerable ports, chemical facilities and nuclear plants.
