Kerry Bad For America
Open letter to John Kerry

To be an American is something more than an aspiration or an idea. Americans have a right to be led by a fellow American, not by someone who received a good part of his education in a European country; by a drifter who lived in a boarding house. Americans have a right to choose a leader who does not chase after very rich women to satisfy his political hunger, or by a looser who cut classes to learn how to fly. An American leader should be something more than an adventure seeker. A leader should actually convey a sense of core values and have roots ... not contradict himself at every possible opportunity, and show a different face depending on the audience. John Kerry is a political ghost. His 'values' are invisible his 'ethic', fleeting.

Do Americans want a Mozambique-born cosmopolitan liberal first lady with a Portuguese accent in the White House? Do Americans want a Marxist/socialist woman who inherited over five-hundred-million-dollars from her former husband as our next first lady who has been quoted as saying 'No American boy or girl should have to go to war and lose their lives because of our gluttonous need for oil'? The same woman who owns three SUV's!? The same woman who said that 'Saddam Hussein had nothing to do with terrorism'? Who are you people? 'What' are you?

Bush bashers who criticize the way he handles the press and gives speeches are contradicting themselves. To those critics who say 'Politics is an art form, and 'therefore' things are said in a certain way to please the crowd', etc. This kind of thinking is way off the mark and was expressed in a letter I recently received from a friend. When on the subject of flip-flopping she said 'Welcome to the world of politics, that's the nature of the game and if you haven't figured that out yet hopefully you will soon. EVERYBODY including good old George Bush plays to the crowd. They set up to be the most appealing to the audience'. Quite revealing, I thought. If entertainment is what you are looking for then hire a magician, not a president. For those old enough to remember the television program To Tell The Truth: where there were three people associated with a story, and the panelists had to guess who was the real person involved. At the end of the program, the host would ask 'Will the real, (so and so), please stand up'! I get the same sensation listening to John Kerry as I did from watching To Tell The Truth. You just don't know who the real John Kerry is because he refuses to tell you. He puts on a different face for different crowds, and in the process makes a fool out of himself. Kerry is not even true to his own religion. So how is it possible to have faith in a man who has no faith in himself? He's just playing to the liberal elite who are picking up the tab for his campaign. Maybe he's pulling one over on them. Who knows? I don't even think John Kerry knows.

No, George Bush isn't perfect. We all have problems and we all fall from grace every now and then. But that's not the point. The point is that I know who Bush is because he wears the same face for everyone. I know what to expect from Bush because he is consistent. He has character. I recall Bush's eyes watering up on television once as he was discussing his fellow American victims of 911. I don't even have to like him, but at least I know what to expect. Kerry puts one on edge because you don't know what his next move is. Why do we look up to people in the first place? We want a leader that we can admire, or for someone else to set an example for us and for our children. Do we want our commander-in-chief to allow his own daughter to show off her breasts at a film festival the way John Kerry's daughter did recently? >> http://www.strangecosmos.com/content/item/100009.html << That's not the kind of leader I want, and I pity those who do. One wonders if this was not a deliberate side show in the Kerry campaign to attract supporters. Sexual promiscuity, enormous wealth, political invisibility, and the looming Marxist/socialist leanings threaten business interests, the image of Americana, American values, and the stability of the family environment. Is this what we 'really' want? Or are we so caught up in republican this and democrat that, that we can no longer see the light at the end of the tunnel.

If, hypothetically, a child old enough to understand something about politics turns to his Kerry-supporting mom and asks 'Mommy, what does John Kerry believe' ... then how is it possible for that parent to convey something of value to the child, given the moral relativism that is so pervasive in Kerry's policies.


John Kerry is a rogue member of the Skull and Bones society at Yale. The difference between Kerry and other members of Skull & Bones is that Kerry betrayed its philosophy by constantly speaking out against Vietnam. Kerry is not a team player. Bush did not serve in Vietnam but wished he had. Kerry did serve but wished he hadn't. John Kerry applied for navy patrol boat duty in Nam, because he was mesmerized by John F. Kennedy's sailing and philandering. Kerry explains his yen for adventure when he said, 'I cut classes, I didn't do much. I spent a lot of time learning to fly'. Obviously, Kerry's hunger for power is not based on a love, or loyality for American values (or his wife's) ... they are based on recklessness and a sense of adventure. I would hate to see a family of pigs like this in the White House!

This situation is remarkably similar to what we had in 1963 when the ungrateful and self righteous Kennedy clan was also threatening to become a monarchy on American soil. So far, Kerry has succeeded in threatening to reconstitute the failed liberal bureaucracy of a bygone era. And for what it is worth, like the Kennedy's, Kerry has also succeeded in angering the Catholic Church. Politics makes for strange bedfellows.

I wasn't really a supporter of his to begin with but the candidate I felt would make the type of changes needed to return control to the hands of the people, was lost in the pack of democratic hopefulls. Keary's message to the people is based upon Bush's stance, instead of putting out declarations toward good government, he's bogged down in Bush's War demography.

This dude is obviously a ditto-head. He probably listens to Hanity and Rush religiously. There is nothing any of us can say that would persuade him to change his mind. The fact that this has been the worst President in history will never deter him and his zealotry.

Lets just post funny faces at him.

You know, I listen to Hannity & Rush. But I also listen to NPR. I also read the New York Times, LA Times, Chicago Tribune and others, all liberal outlets. I am on Moveon.org distribution and I have to say, I agree with "diito head". As far as worst President in history, you are entitled to your opinion. I consider him one of the best. Anyone can take a good economy and run it into the ground, it takes leadership though to turn it around like he has.

[Anyone can take a good economy and run it into the ground, it takes leadership though to turn it around like he has.]

Yeah, and no President has ever taken a surplus and made it disappear like G. W. has. This happened before 9/11 by the way. And no President has racked up a trade deficet of 46 billion, a deficet of 27 trillion, and experienced the lost of more jobs since the Great Depression.

The economy has turned around? Is it better now than before he took office?

I became a registered democrat to nominate Clark but I'll vote for Kerry. I'm not voting for Kerry's wife, to the best of my knowledge, she's not on the ballet. Anyone who served in Vietnam is an american, and I'm voting for him.

May I remind you that in 1929, 12 million Americans where thrown out of jobs and the GNP and stock market dropped like never before. So, your statement is incorrect. The trade deficit you cited is for one month. $489.4 billion trade deficit for 2003. Their are 139 million americans working today as compared to 137.5 million when he took office. To me, that is a gain of 1.5 million jobs, which is meager, but great considering the economy that Clinton turned over to him and 9/11. GNP increases of 8.2%, 4.1% and 4.4% in the last 3 quarters. Yes, I would say the economy is doing outstanding. Yes, it is better now. Look at Clintons last two quarters and compare to the last two quarters. All graph lines going up, not down.

I heard somewhere that we are in a record deficit, that's not trade deficit, but that's money our U.S. government owes. I believe we pay more taxes then any of our forefathers. I didn't see a tax break, I ended up paying 600 at the end of the year. But I bet my son will pay even more taxes then me to pay off the dept.

I watched an old battle ship being pulled out of moth balls. Unbelievable if you ever saw. We can't offord to make another. We're struggling with the one air craft carrier "The Ronald Reagon." Chief Perry explained to me that before Vietnam we had so much money, we could have bought the world. When you travel accross America, it is a wonder how we were ever able to pay for those roads cut threw mountains.

Things are better now, we can't pay for as much but we will pay more taxes

Once again IU, you don't know how to read. I said SINCE the Great Depression. That means after, in case you're still having trouble.
You're correct about the trade deficit. My mistake, it's the largest MONTHLY deficit ever recorded.
According to the Department of Labor, the number of full-time employees in the year 2000 was officially 500 thousand more than what is current. We have picked up more jobs than I thought, but where are you getting your numbers from?

I couldn't find the GDP or GNP for any historical reference. I tried the Dept of Commerce and the World Bank but they didn't have it. Any suggestions where it might be?

Actually, I read quite well. My opening statement was about jobs, market and GNP. The three items by reference were refuting the statement that no President has ever gotten rid of a surplus like Bush. The depression statement was about jobs only. So, the statement is still inaccurate.

Just a small reminder of our not so glorious recent past.
You ever watch those old classic films, one of my favorites are 'The Three Stoodgies'. At the beginnig a narrator comes on to discuss the fine points of the movie being shown.
His comments about "The 3 Stoodgies' generally fall into the social commentary they presented, one coulld say they are a bit 'heyoka', because they made the people laugh at their own foolishness.
But do you understand what acts they were protesting?
---------------------------
Isn't TV programming terrible, doesn't seem to be much worth watching. Ya, I can remember when way back . . . they were promoting a new TV program. So I started watching it, but it didn't last long. It was suppose to be about 'how these children would be reunited as families, I thought it was a kids show but it turned out to be a reality program about adults, who had been taken from their families & like 30 or 40 years later they were finding their brothers & sisters.
0' America, America
What has become of the ways of freedom
that you had promised these children?
Note a small cost paid for your prosperity?
