|It's coming down to the wire.|
Vote for Kerry.
Not because Kerry would make a better President than Bush. He might not.
Not because Bush is a bumbling idiot. Bush isn't actually that stupid and does have some redeeming traits.
Not because Kerry won the debates. He did well, but not that well. And it's no reason to elect the most powerful person in the world if you just do it on the basis of 3 bits of theatre.
Not because unemployment is up, poverty is up, imports are up, gas prices are up and the USA is in real danger of slipping into a period of high inflation and all that happened on the Bush watch. That may not be Bush's fault and would probably have happened anyway.
Not because American foreign policy is becoming increasingly absurd. Do you really think that it will change dramatically if Kerry gets in?
Not because Bush lied about the reasons for going into Iraq. That's realpolitique and Kerry probably would have done the same.
Not because the Bush administration looked the other way in the run up to 9/11 and ignored the warning signs. What should or could they have done even if they hadn't taken their eye off the ball?
Not because Iraq is turning to hell in a hand basket. What's Kerry going to do that won't take 4 years?
Not because Bush being defeated will hasten Blair's demise. You shouldn't vote for someone because it will change politics in another country.
But because it will keep these people out of power for 4 years.
They're the really dangerous ones. Bush is just the figurehead. Some of them have been playing this game for 30 years now. It's time to stop them.
