Voted against ban on Partial Birth Abortion.

Opposes federal death penalty.

So, Mr, Kerry, you believe that it is okay to take a healthy, full-term baby who is on his way out of his mother's womb, stick a pair of scissors into his scalp, and vacuum out his brains. However, Timothy McVeigh, who murdrered 168 men women and children in the Oklahoma City bombing should be granted mercy and be put in prison with 3 meals a day and cable tv. Sounds like your priorities are in order.

Anybody have the details on his private island, held by a trust (no taxes) for exclusive use of his extended family. I think this really needs to be emphasized, two Americas indeed. Those of us who pay taxes on our vacation homes (er, trailers) and those who don't.

I am so glad you went to this trouble but please cite some of your sources. I've been in a debate with a friend and she just won't listen to reason. She hates Bush and wants Kerry but she's a Christian. How do you figure? She says Bush lied and I said no that he was going by our intel. Maybe Tenent should be fired. Yadda, Yadda, Yadda. Anyone with info, help! I want quick, summarized info.

MUST SEE WEBSITE!!

"Vietnam Veterans Against Kerry"

It has every imaginable picture of Kerry's cause. The group MARCHING against Vietnam Vets!! It has the COVER of his book "The New Soldier" (the picture he has tried so HARD TO HIDE). With the grungy youth, and the upside down American Flag and the Iwo Jima type pose.

It is the MOST extensive biography of Kerry and his life. The Kennedy's and Kerry (whodathunkit?)

It EXPLAINS in all THEIR NOT SO GOREY DETAIL his wounds, and how HE USED them to get OUT OF NAM and OUT of the service. He is the one with some splainin' to do!

http://www.usvetdsp.com/jf_kerry.htm

See for yourselves.

Then if you are a Vietnam vet, or know one, or even if you just support this cause, click on the bumper stickers, support these guys in their efforts. Buy a MIA/POW pin or bracelet.

Lets put our Commander in Chief back in office.

Thanks!
