Bush: "We're still not safe!"

Well, no shit Mr. President. I'm not sure we were ever that safe. Besides the point is to not just make the borders safe, it is to attack the right people to make it safe.

Now, I admit I am not a big Bush supporter. In fact I'm undecided. But, I'm thinking of buying a Kerry-Edwards sticker for my car. Nevertheless, my vote for the Republicans is always open and I would always vote on issues and the candidate and not on the party. I believe everyone should do this and they should be better informed. Anyway, I digress...

First off, Mr. President has to order and bring in more forces to Afghanistan. Shift your focus from Iraq to Pakistan and Afghanistan. That's where the real terrorists are coming from. Now that Iraq is in a bit of a quagmire more of them are being converted over there too... It is a just a part of reality. There are many people who do want to be free. However, there are just as many trying to disrupt the process.

I am really afraid that Mr. President will go to war in 2005 against Iran. This is exactly why we must not re-elect. I would not put that past him at all... In fact I'm more than sure that's already being planned. This would be an absolute disaster in the middle-east. The security advisors should really think about whether this would be a good move. But a vote for re-election will only increase their confidence in silly measures. They will not be answerable to the people in the second term and they will do what they please. This must STOP!!!

Do not re-elect BUSH. Elect someone who can take the US out of Iraq in a graded fashion and make sure it doesn't become a powder-keg for the next war. Wars have never built nations, they have only destroyed them. If you think history tells your otherwise, then you need a crash course my friend.

Where's the love indeed...

I mean it hasn't been the best week but it hasn't been the worst either. This is not to say that it has been smooth sailing and deafeningly normal. No No No... far from it infact. Many events have transpired in the last 10 days that I won't talk about here but just re-quote a cliche, "When it rains, it pours!" But it is definitely, a week to remember in my life.

Anyway, enough about that. If you haven't been living under a rock then you know the Democratic National Convention was this week. Having followed the convention as closely as possible during exam week I have to say it didn't help them as much as it should have. But, then again I think it just re-inforced certain things like security and defense on the part of the whole democratic party. I think they are not in negative territory anymore. But, definitely not in the positive either. They are right on the knife-edge.

They have a great chance to drive home the point htat democrats are not wimps when it comes to defense. They must forcefully espouse new ideas and new innovations in policy. This is the only way the party will survive. It needs to grow and define itself every election. I have always been of the opinion that the candidate who improvises and comes out swinging is always going to be the winner. In this election neither of these guys have done anything to inspire such innovation. C'mon guys, let's not be on either sides so politically. First off, stop the negative ads and attacks. Let's focus on policy and issues. Stop this shit!! Let me hear some real moves on both sides.

Though I support Kerry, I will say that President can make a strong case and he could get my vote (if I had any rights...!) Anyway, word to Mr. President. Stop attacking Kerry and extoll your own virtues and achievements. They can carry you through and through. As for Sen. Kerry. Run a positive campaign and show us where and exactly how you can do better than the President.

Here's hoping for the best.
