Wesley Clark or John Kerry seem to have the best chance at beating Bush.  I'm pulling for Clark.

But you're right -- anyone but Bush.  Even Lieberman, a Republican in sheep's clothing, is better than Bush.

Don't waste your vote here... vote Democratic.

ANYONE BUT BUSH.  no wmd's no excuses why tax payers have been overcharged by cheneys oil tycoons and he just opened millions of national forest to be drilled, what an asshole.  Oh yeah and he sent my friends to get killed for a bullshit war which he seems so excited about.  now when they verify no wmd's will he be taken to the UN for war crimes??????  the senseless bombing and killing of thousands just cause sadam couldnt be stoped by his daddy, we all have to suffer.  the bush family is the most evil of political familys.  their agendas stay the same throughout generations, its quite disturbing how they pull the wool over peoples eyes.

Head Up- Reinstatement of the Draft

I urge you to read the article below on the current agenda of the federal government to
reinstate the draft in order to staff up for a protracted war on "terrorism."

Pending legislation in the House and Senate (twin bills S 89 and HR 163) would time the program so the draft could begin at early as Spring 2005 -- conveniently just after the 2004 presidential election! But the administration is quietly trying to get these bills passed NOW, so our action is needed immediately. Details and links follow.

If voters who currently support U.S. aggression abroad were confronted with the possibility that their own children or grandchildren might not have a say about whether to fight, many of these same voters might have a change of mind. (Not that it should make a difference, but this plan would among other things eliminate higher education as a shelter and would not exclude women -- and Canada is no longer an option.)

Please send this on to all the parents and teachers you know, and all the aunts and uncles, grandparents, godparents....And let your children know -- it's their future, and they can be a powerful voice for change! Please also write to your representatives to ask them why they aren't telling their constituents about these bills -- and write to newspapers and other media outlets to ask them why they're not covering this important story.
*********

The DRAFT

  $28 million has been added to the 2004 Selective Service System (SSS)budget to prepare for a military draft that could start as early as
June 15, 2005. SSS must report to Bush on March 31, 2005 that the system, which has lain dormant for decades, is ready for activation.  Please see website: http://www.sss.gov/perfplan_fy2004.html

  The Pentagon has quietly begun a public campaign to fill all 10,350 draft board positions and 11,070 appeals board slots nationwide..
Though this is an unpopular election year topic, military experts and influential members of Congress are suggesting that if Rumsfeld's
prediction of a "long, hard slog" in Iraq and Afghanistan [and a permanent state of war on "terrorism"] proves accurate, the U.S. may have no choice but to draft.
  http://www.informationclearinghouse.inf ... le5146.htm
 
Congress brought twin bills, S. 89 and H.R. 163 forward this year, entitled the Universal National Service Act of 2003, "To provide for
the common defense by requiring that all young persons [age 18--26]in the United States, including women, perform a period of military
service or a period of civilian service in furtherance of the national defense and homeland security, and for other purposes." These active bills currently sit in the Committee on Armed Services.

  Dodging the draft will be more difficult than those from the Vietnam era remember. College and Canada will not be options. In December 2001, Canada and the US signed a "Smart Border Declaration," which could be used to keep would-be draft dodgers in. Signed by Canada's Minister of Foreign Affairs, John Manley, and US Homeland Security Director, Gov. Tom Ridge, the declaration involves a 30-point plan which implements, among other things, a "pre-clearance agreement" of people entering and departing each country. Reforms aimed at making the draft more equitable along gender and class lines also eliminates higher education as a shelter. Underclassmen would only be able to postpone service until the end of their cur-rent semester. Seniors would have until the end of the academic year.

FYI...a Google search using S -89 indicates that Senator Hollings has introduced a bill to reinstate the draft.

I won't post anonymously, and I'll stand behind my choice to vote for George W. in 2000.  I felt at that point like it was the lesser of two evils. (And yes, I'm one of those politically conservative southern Christian people that everyone seems to despise so much.  Sorry to break it to you.)

This time around, I doubt what I vote for Bush.  Not because I disagree with the war with Iraq, I think it was coming eventually, whether it was now with GW or later on with someone else.  I don't agree with the way that it was handled, and multiple other things that have happened, especially since 9/11.  And I think that John Kerry or John Edwards would probably do a good job of cleaning up the mess that's been made.  I'm vehemently anti-Hillary Clinton for a multitude of reasons, that are too numerous to go into here.  But I'm voting for the Democratic candidate myself most likely this time around.

I've considered voting Independent, or Green Party, but like someone mentioned before, basically all you do with a vote there is to make a statement.  If enough people that honestly believed the principles of the alternatives did vote their consciences, there might be a worthwile purpose.  But for me, for now, I'll just continue to choose the lesser of two evils, until something comes along that pushes me into another way of thinking.

I"m not saying Clinton was perfect, but DAMN....I think it's about time we DID have someone in the White House that enjoyed an occassional blow job or spliff.  Most of America has done the same at one time or another...I think it puts him a little more in touch (no pun intended) with reality instead of the fucking religious right wanting to have so much influence over how I should live MY LIFE. ::bangin::

Oh, and then there's that little issue called the ECONOMY.  Seems Clinton has got it all over Bush on that one. :wave:
