I may be a Brit but i folowed the race closley and Kerry would of been a far better choice for your nation. His more liberall policys and propositions of increasing taxation on the rich in order to give the disadvantaged a better life by improving public services and lowering the tax burden on the poor would be more efective and socially just. Plus you must remember that most of the mud slinging from both sides is either fabricated or twisted. Acusations on Kerry's shakey gun record came from one vote which only expanded the the amount of people eligible to carry a firearm. And even so only uder duress in oredr to bring in a greater democratic reform. I could go on for far longer than the maximum word limit but I wont and before you say it I am not a comunist, I am a moderate socalist. A member of the labour party and a loyal Blairite. I would be interested to know your sources so I can research them further. Plus it would be interesting to have a frank exchange of politicall ideas so please reply to this and leave contact details. I look forward to hearing from you.
I have an idea.
The truth about the Purple Hearts medals he " earned ". Kerry is a faggot and I hope he did not get elected. Respond to the review.
propaganda begets propaganda
Propaganda is great, either coming form the left or the right. It’s entertaining to see how people will try and whitewash the public. All sides use propaganda and all sides think they are telling the truth. Hopefully some of us are smart enough to see that the truth lies somewhere in the middle. Also, the timing of this piece is nice since the election is drawing near. Where were you five years ago when nobody had heard of John Kerry outside of his own state?
Nicely done man... like alot have said, fairly long for this site, and maybe a bit dry/serious for this audience... but outstanding work all in all.
As for me, I was very impressed. A good telling of alot of the facts that were in many cases, simply ignored by the media at the time.
Where are the sources?
I mean sure I can just spit out "George Bush was out in the bushes blowing some dude." but that doesn't make it honest.
Until I see any viable sources, then I'm sorry, I can't believe anything I read here.
All I see is
"People who don't trust the government are bad."
"People upset with the handling of the government dishoner our armed forces."
and I guess because you don't really say you just kind of beat around the bush:
"Because of Jane Fonda, we lost the war."
But because you did such a bad job at actually making a point, I could also say:
"People opposing anything our goverment does are all communists"
Which would make zero sense because the constitution itself is based on the principle that we have the right to tell the government that they are fucking up.
You know old Ammendment I to the BILL OF RIGHTS
"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances."
But your TV doesn't tell you that, does it?
