And this is the guy who wants to be president of THIS country?

For the life of me, I just cannot get a handle on their "strategy" for winning in 2004.

Running anti-America candidates in a time of perpetual war just doesn't make any sense at all.

But if that's how they want to run it, why should we stop them?

Benedict Arnold was an American war hero, until one measly little act of treason lost him his place in the Pantheon of American patriots. Like young Bill Clinton, young John F. Kerry wanted to maintain his "political viability" during the Vietnam War. Because he had a little more physical courage (and a little less libido) than X42, however, he chose to enlist in the Navy. As an officer, he had more options as to where in the Navy he wanted to serve: don't think for a moment that he was somehow accidentally assigned to the "swift" boats by the "little old GS-13" lady in tennis shoes. Kerry chose Navy in general, and swift boats in particular because it conjured up images of
"the Real JFK" in PT109. As to whether Kerry's actions in Vietnam were the stuff that legends are made of, I doubt we'll ever know. As an Army Veteran who served in Vietnam, I can say that (with the notable exeception of Naval Aviators and SEALS) the Vietnam-era Navy was notorious for handing out "valor" awards for acts that would have been considered "doing your duty" in other branches of service. What is clear, however, is that when Kerry got back to Mass., the political winds had definitely shifted to the radical Left. A "War hero" was more likely to be viewed as a "baby killer" by the movers and shakers in the Bay State Democratic political machine. So Kerry broke faith with his fellow Vietnam vets, and went heavily anti-war. I remember that there was a lot of media on him at the time, and in my recollection he made a lot of "Hanoi good, America evil" kind of statements. I'm sure that the archives of major TV networks are, even as we speak, being purged of some of JFK the Second's most radical moments, just as all documentary record of X42's doings in the anti-war movement at home and abroad mysteriously disappeared in the early 90's, but there's a lot of paper out there on Kerry's transformation from American patriot to Hanoi propaganda conduit (if the Republicans, or Kerry's Democrat political rivals, have the cojones to exploit it).

Your question HIGHLIGHTS my opinion that this election is a WATERSHED event in our nations history. On one side we have a self-admitted WAR criminal whose actions when he returned from Vietnam were treasonous. He AIDED and ABETTED the enemy. When elected as Senator proceeded to vote against every Military pay raise and every weapons system, culminating with the horrendously hypocritical action of VOTING for a WAR and VOTING against giving our troops the guns, bullets, equipment and FOOD to fight that SAME WAR!!!

On the other side we have a Commander-in Chief, who is CONSISTANT and is doing everything possible to protect his country and to fullfill his oath of office.

Which will we as a nation ELECT?

The outcome will prove whether or not this country is LEFT or RIGHT and will have a lasting and profound effect on our nation's future.
