Why I will not be voting for Bush
    #2971905 - 08/06/04 02:11 PM (13 years, 4 months ago)

1. I disapproved of his handling of the Sept. 11 attacks. While I
have seen no evidence of his complicity or incompetency in regards
to what happened before the attacks, I think his behavior during
and after the attacks was lacking.

a. He continued reading a children's story while he knew that
planes were being flown into buildings. In my opinion any
President worth a shit would have immediately taken charge
of the situation. His delay was inexcusable.

b. His address to the American people said that the reason that
the terrorists "hate us" is because of our freedoms. That
is a lie. They hate us because of our support for Israel and
other Middle Eastern regimes. He should have been honest when
addressing the American people.

2. His verbal skills are lacking. I am of the opinion that what
comes out of a person's mouth is indicative of what is going on
in their head. Given how many times I have heard President Bush
blunder not only with his grammar but his arguments, I question
whether he has the intellect to be President.

3. It now appears as if the WMD argument was complete
bullshit. And he seems unwilling to admit that the WMD assertion was
a mistake. I however still support the invasion of Iraq for political
reasons(I listed them in another post). I surmise that these
political reasons were thought of by the President and his
advisors and the WMD argument was a convenient excuse. In summary,
I do think that the President believed that Iraq had WMD, but
I also think he had major political reasons for invading Iraq.
I think he should be up front and honest about the whole situation,
and I don't think he has been.

I'm voting him out for some of the same reasons.

also, Im hoping the democrats will bring jobs back home. I work directly in a company that does the US / India support thing and let me tell you. They are fucking idiots in india overall when it comes to IT shit. Horrible customer satifation, taking our jobs, etc.

his plans to fix our economy seem to not be working or at least not in his term.

His tax break for children did kick ass though. I get more cash back now for having kids which is a bonus to me. But that doesnt outweigh the fact that I'm at more then 50% of what my salary SHOULD be if the market wasnt completely destroyed.

I realize this is a tad bit off-topic but...I will indulge in
this real quick:

I work directly in a company that does the US / India support thing
and let me tell you. They are fucking idiots in india overall when it
comes to IT shit. Horrible customer satifation, taking our jobs, etc.

I watch the news and have repeatedly heard how a lot of technology
related jobs are being sent to India from the U.S. It's funny because
whenever I call about one of my appliances(computer, tv, etc..),
an Indian that I can barely understand(and that can barely understand
me) answers the phone.


the fact that I'm at more then 50% of what my salary SHOULD be if
the market wasnt completely destroyed.

Quick question for you:

It sounds as if you are a technology person(engineer or something
like that). I have recently been thinking about going back to
college and before I was an engineering major. I don't think I
will go back for that, but it of course is an option because I
have already studied it somewhat. Do you think the Engineering
professions in America are secure and worth entering into?

I think certain engineering fields are still good, although on a semi slow decline.

It really depends on what kind of engineering you want to get into.

Civil should still be good as growth rate is increasing.

*ANYTHING* computer related you might as well damn yourself to a shitty salary, constant failing business, bankrupcy's, etc.

bio engineering is bank.

Anything medical, bank.

etc.

My reasons are a little more basic. He ran on a plateform of being a true conservative and lied. His "control" over the population is quite frightening to me (opposite of smaller govt.) and many people just think of it as ok. My family was shocked when I told them that i'm voting for Badnarick (they're very religious). I relly wish there was a candidate that actually had similar views as I hold and I could be proud to vote for them, but since i've been able to vote there hasn't been one.

True...his excessive government spending(we have big deficits)
shows that he is not a fiscal conservative...which is what we
desperately need if America is ever going to get out
of debt.
