lets not kid ourselves...
    #2966339 - 08/05/04 01:14 AM (12 years, 4 months ago)

bush will win the november election.. and the global oppression party will sweep congress too :sad:...given that such a sweep will constitute a solid mandate for bush and the radical right..there will be little if any point in continuing social debate in the US...so the question is ..will you then be forced to accept the neocon version of reality?...

the GOP sweep is the reality at present.. yet social debate has not ceased for a variety of reasons.. all of which will become irrelevant once bush is given the mandate this fall...and that mandate will not expire in 2008 either (american prospect)...

Let's not kid ourselves...

There's not much of a difference between Bush and Kerry. Kerry will be worse in some regards than Bush. Bush will be worse in some regards than Kerry. I don't care much anymore, either way we're fucked

I dunno. There's still hope that Bush won't win, IMHO. Either way, I'm voting Kerry.

Annnnnnd I had a light saber and my friend was there and I said "you look like an indian" and he said "you look like satan" and he found a stick and a rock and he named the rock ooga booga and he named the stick Stick and we both thought that was pretty funny. We got eaten alive by mosquitos but didn't notice til the next day. I stepped on some glass while wading in the swamp and cut my foot open, didn't bother me til the next day either....yeah it was a good time, ended the night by buying some liquor for minors and drinking nips and going to he diner and eating chicken fingers, and then I went home and went to bed.---senior doobie

This is your last chance to jump on the Kerry band waggon Inny. Don't get left behind with Bush, Cheney and Ashcroft.  :puke:

first of all..its not just a vote for bush vs kerry...its the judges..stupid...

I thought you had me on ignore?

a. I don't care about the judges as much as those that will appoint them.
b. What the hell are you trying to say? :confused:

Kerry unfortunately seems to have a similar disdain for liberty. Voting 'Yay!' for the 'Patriot' Act WITHOUT EVEN READING IT, does not make for a good foil to authoritarians like Ashcroft.

Yes, let's not kid ourselves. The president (any president) will have our best interests at heart (as long as they coincide with his best interests).  That's why I believe that a vote for Mr. Ed really isn't gonna' change things (assuming he wins), because Bush genuinely has the best interests of the average American in mind just as much as Kerry does. :wink:

To call humans 'rational beings' does injustice to the term, 'rational.'  Humans are capable of rational thought, but it is not their essence.  Humans are animals, beasts with complex brains.  Humans, more often than not, utilize their cerebrum to rationalize what their primal instincts, their preconceived notions, and their emotional desires have presented as goals - humans are rationalizing beings.

I think the one party republican state is a great idea. As long as the people that the democrats are putting forth are Nancy Pelosi and John Kerry, one party is all I can stomach. Bill Clinton was fairly conservative. He moved the party toward the middle. We are in a period where the nation as a whole has been moving to the right, and the democrats have responded by moving to the left. Seems to me like they want a one party state.

The Democrats should have done more to embrace Clinton's conservative success. They should have tried to regain the middle and attack republicans on fiscal conservative issues. They should have looked to people like Joe Liberman and Zell Miller to lead them instead of turning to the left wing of the party.

If this becomes a one party state, don't blame the republicans, blame the dumb ass democrats. Clinton knew public opinion like the bald spot on the back of Monica Lewinski's head. John Kerry and Nancy Pelosi are too stupid to even wet their finger and stick it up in the air to find out which way the wind is blowing.

I like the premise of this post though. People are kidding themselves if they think that Kerry has a chance. Every Senator from the State of Massachusetts has run for President as a democrat since JFK. They have all lost. That state is a little piss ant liberal enclave with some sort of God complex. I say we kill them all and let God sort them out.

I can't wait to see what Dick Chaney does as President. WOO HOO! Roll out the barrels, we'll have a barrel of FUN! Isn't it just jack dandy that this is only the surface of the iceburg?

Chaney/Ashcroft in 08! We are taking America back for fine and decent Americans! WOO HOO!
