I just ran across this old post of mine on another board and decided that I didn't want to lose it - incidentally, I did not vote for Bush (imadork):
I've been watching Al Gore give a speech for 15 minutes - and I am literally feeling physically sick.
The man is pure manifest evil.
This idea he has of stealing from people who "have" in order to give to people who "have not" is just plain disgusting. It is slavery, by definition - those people work to earn that money that is stolen from them (no, that's not an overstatement to call it slavery - let's not mince words, let's call a spade a spade).
It literally makes me feel ill to think that our country has fallen so far that a speech like that would be put forth on the basis of its expected acceptability.
"Hey, I'm having a hard time feeding my kids, paying my house payment, paying for my cable television, paying for my annual vacation to Florida, buying my beer, cigarettes, and the aspirin I need for my hangovers. And I haven't had a new pair of Birkenstocks for 6 months! What can I do? I KNOW! I'll steal money from people who have more than I do! And, rather than doing it on my own, I'll get millions of other people who are in the same situation that I'm in to *vote* to use the big guns of government to steal the money for me! We'll call it TAXES!"
(Have I misrepresented this? NO! Al Gore champions what he calls "The middle class." We're not talking about poor people who need help - we're talking about the every day normal collosally rich by the standards of the rest of the world, spoiled rotten American. And why is he championing THEFT in favor of the middle class? He's appealing to the greed of the largest voting group there is - in a digusting quest for the power of the White House. He is pure - manifest - evil.)
It's sick. Absolutely sick. And it is, by definition, socialism.
You want socialism? Socialism by vote is by definition: fascism. Adolf Hitler/Al Gore - what a combination.
How about socialism by force? That's called: communism. Khrushchev/Gore
Socialism, besides being a heinous violation of human rights, has devastated everything it's touched throughout history.
Who to vote for this year should be perfectly crystal clear.
How disgusting - I had no idea that the political climate in what used to be the absolute highest piller of a role model of a morally just country had fallen so far.
Vote for someone who champions what is right: BUSH
