oh yeah I forgot to add
THE KERRY LIES
As I listened to the news, I was stunned by the blatant lies
being put forth by one Senator John Kerry.
He ranted and raved about how Bush is using the troops for
political purposes. He is cutting their pay, their benefits and if HE were
President, he would fix all that. I guess Kerry has had some private
revelation about how the troops are being taken care of because nothing he
said is even vaguely true. He has been and voted anti-military for decades.
We do not need another military hating liberal in the White House. Now is
NOT the time. It will be our undoing.
He compared Iraq to Vietnam. You know that war where he said
he threw his medals away in protest. Well, not really. He threw someone
else's. His are in a case on the wall behind his desk. It was the war that
he used to put himself in the public light so he could get elected. He
claims Bush is using the war for political reasons. What crap. (Gosh, what
is HE doing right now?) Kerry said we need to send more troops. That Bush
needs to listen to the Congress in regard to managing the war. We need to
crawl to the U.N. because WE just can't handle the situation. That's what
got us into trouble in Viet Nam! NOT LISTENING TO THE MILITARY MEN!
Instead, LBJ and his democrat congress tried to run the war and you see how
it ended up. The General in command in Iraq has said repeatedly that he
DOES NOT NEED more troops. He needs more cops! He needs more engineers.
He doesn't want OUR troops guarding bridges and buildings where they will
just be targets. But Kerry thinks he knows it all. Like Gore, he feels a
couple of years in the military, which he decried for years, is suddenly
some banner for him to wear. He apparently thinks no one will look up his
abysmal record when it comes to shafting the military and the men and women
in them. He's wrong.
He said he has long advocated all things good for our military.
RUBBISH! I can't believe he can even stand up in front of veterans, who
have served this country and lie to them like that.
Here is a sample of his record: Kerry was lieutenant governor
under Dukakis, one of the worst Governors in history. He was thrashed when
he ran for President. Kerry was all for the passes for murderers and
rapists which, once enacted, resulted in the rapes and murders of innocent
people. He wants taxpayers to pay for all abortions on demand, including
the partial birth murders.
Kerry Has Voted Against A Balanced Budget Amendment At Least
Kerry Voted Against President Bush's Tax Cuts, At Least The
Tenth Key Anti-Tax Relief Vote Of His Senate Career.
Kerry Voted For The Biggest Tax Increase In American History
Under President Clinton.
Kerry Has Voted For At Least Seven Major Reductions In Defense
And Military Spending Necessary For Our National Security.
In 1996, Introduced Bill To Slash Defense Department Funding By
In 1995, Voted To Freeze Defense Spending For 7 Years, Slashing
Over $34 Billion From Defense.
Fiscal 1996 Budget Resolution - Defense Freeze. "Harkin, D-Iowa,
amendment to freeze defense spending for the next seven years and transfer
the $34.8 billion in savings to education and job training."

Forces in one year.
Has Voted Repeatedly To Cut Defense Spending, Including:
In 1993, Voted Against Increased Defense Spending For Military
Pay Raise. Kerry voted to kill an increase in military pay over five years.
In 1992, Voted To Cut $6 Billion From Defense.
In 1991, Voted To Slash Over $3 Billion From Defense, Shift
Money To Social Programs.
In 1991, Voted To Cut Defense Spending By 2%.
Has Voted Repeatedly To Cut Or Eliminate Funding For B-2 Stealth
Bomber. Has Voted Repeatedly Against Missile Defense. Weapons Kerry Sought
To Phase Out Were Vital In Iraq. "[K]erry supported cancellation of a host
of weapons systems that have become the basis of US military might -- the
high-tech munitions and delivery systems on display to the world as they
leveled the Iraqi regime of Saddam Hussein in a matter of weeks." (Brian C.
Mooney, "Taking One Prize, Then A Bigger One," The Boston Globe, 6/19/03)
Military hardware he felt we no longer need since the "cold war"
is past. The money would be better spent on "social" programs. These
weapons are now the core of our military might.
F-16 Fighting Falcons.
B-1Bs B-2As F-15 And F-16s.
AH-64 Apache Helicopter
Tomahawk Cruise Missile.
Aegis Air-Defense Cruiser
During 1980s, Kerry And Michael Dukakis Joined Forces With
Liberal Group Dedicated To Slashing Defense. Kerry sat on the board of "Jobs
With Peace Campaign," which sought to "develop public support for cutting
the defense budget."("Pentagon Demonstrators Call For Home-Building, Not
Bombs," The Associated Press, 6/3/88)
Running For Congress In 1972, Kerry Promised To Cut Defense
Spending. "On what he'll do if he's elected to Congress, Kerry said he would
'bring a different kind of message to the president.' He said he would vote
against military appropriations." ("Candidate's For Congress Capture Campus
In Andover," Lawrence [MA] Eagle-Tribune, 4/21/72)
"So you can look at all the potential threats of the world, and
when you add the expenditures of all of our allies to the United States of
America, you have to stop and say to yourself, 'What is it that we are
really preparing for in a post-cold-war world?'"(Sen. John Kerry,
Congressional Record, 5/15/96, p. S5061)
Apparently, Kerry was blissfully unaware of any of the multitude
of terror attacks and threats against the country. If we had listened to
him, we would have no military at all.
Kerry was also one of those who helped castrate our CIA and
intelligence gathering, which, along with Clinton's total ignoring of the
problem, led to 9/11 and the present global war on terror we are now
What upsets me most about this man is how easily he can LIE.
Just like Bill. He even makes himself look like a Kennedy clone and married
a woman rolling in money who would be an embarrassment as First Lady.
(Almost as bad as Hillary, but more honest about it) I don't care if he was
in the military. I don't care if he was in Viet Nam. He is a socialist and
thus he abhors the military. He can write his time off in the service as
He is a Liar. If you value your freedom, your very life and
that of your children, don't even consider voting for this man. It may well
be the last vote you live to make. This man could no more conduct the war
we are facing than my 4 year old Grandson. NOTE: My grandson might even be
