Sadly, you lost ALL credibility with this statement here. I did read the rest of your post, but it all sounded like regurgitated liberal commie crap.
Allow me to make myself a little more understood:
Kerry has a background more similar to you than Bush could ever have. Yea, Kerry entered politics and became a politician, instantly making himself a completely different type of citizen. But above all, He was a solider, fought in Vietnam (another senseless political "war", aimed at fighting "commies" as you put it, instead of fighting them here), and at least he had the guts to speak out on the issue back then and help bring an end to the "war" (which was never congressionally declared a war).
On the other hand, maybe Bush is more like you:
Born in New Haven, Connecticut. Grandfather (Prescott Bush) had banking and business aggrements with the Nazi's. Went AWOL from the Texas Nat'l Guard for 6 months in the late 1960s. Flew an obsolete fighting craft simply to avoid going to Vietnam. DUI offender. C*ke head during much of this time. Alcoholic afterwards. C average student in college. (Granted, I'm no Deans' List/Valedictorian, but for the leader of the country I am a proud citizen of and of which I love, I simply demand better for myself and my country.) The list is pretty condemming.
Maybe you just don't like anything but your own patterns of thought. How about reading more, and opening up your obvious closed-headed thinking and considering that the guy you voted for wasn't the "chosen" one. Remember: religion is not only a holy institution, it is also a tool one could use to gain control.
Please excuse me for actually knowing what I'm talking about. Since when is the form of government called Communism synonymous with "Liberal"?
And BTW: the French resistance was a huge factor in winning the war AGAINST the Nazis.
Besides, French Fries are good.
I may not agree with what you say, but I'll fight to the death for your right to say it.
