The tone if Kerry wins will be much the same if the President wins.
One side will chant:

"Illegal blah blah!"
"blah, blah disenfranchised voters blah blah...."
"blah, blah, blah voter fraud blah..."

while the other one will happily be chanting the inevitable "Oops, looks like..."



...like death and taxes.

No way.... the Republicans still have their ace in the hole - their ability to raise the terrorist threat level to RED!!! just before the election. Several analyses have shown that the incumbant gets support when the populace feels threatened. No way will Karl Rove leave that advantage on the table at crunch time. Face it, libbies.... the incumbant was re-elected on 9/11.

You underestimate the American people as well as all of the posters on this board. You will see some of the same type tripe as you will when Bush wins. Same story different writers.

The American people are resilient, after all we survived 8 years of slick willie!!

The same select few will start wasting another four years of their life trying to win pissing contests on a football board, oblivious to their addictive personality that forces them to wake up every day with nothing better to do than tear Bush down in an attempt to deflect from their own pathetic existence.

It's the advantage of incumbancy....remember Clinton bombing the Infant Formula Factory and/or the Aspirin Factory? Yep, right before the election in 1996.

We are back to higher taxes to pay for social programs.....

The economy will falter to start off with for at least 2 - 3 years, standard progress after changing parties.....

The military will get smaller, less spending, thus creating more concern for our troops and homeland security....

We can stop worrying about unemployment, inflation, deficits, homelessness, sexism, racism, inequality, etc. All those things the left bemoans when a Rep is in office. Because there'll be a Dem in office to pay lip service to it, regardless of the actual numbers.

But you see that won't happen if Kerry gets elected because he has a plan and when he rolls back the tax break from the top 2% he will be able to take care of that. Along with health insurance for all and tougher border security as well. He will also be able to inspect every container entering our ports to ensure we will be safe.

If Kerry wins he won't get his health care plan, might roll back some of the tax cut but will apoint more liberal judges. He might pull the boys out of Iraq a little faster than Bush but not much.

There will be a less proactive method in other countries regarding the war on Terror but we really don't have a clue what Bush would or will do next in this area either.

With the exception of the power to appoint judges We tend to overestimate the power of the Pres.


This BB will just do a 180 of those bitching about every thing the pres. does and those sticking up for him.

If Kerry is elected he will be a lame President incapable of getting much passed which may not be all bad. Globally other countries may be more willing to work with him which is not bad either. There are a whole lot of hopefully issues I could toss up like not endorsing the money grab by the Pharmaceutical Companies and quit passing legislation on moral issues ect. I will leave that alone for the time being. I would wish him the best but would still see him as the metro-weasel I believe him to be. I have to believe that America can see this guy for what he is and send him packing but you never know. I am just mad as hell at the Democratic party for giving us this punk ass as a candidate. What I wouldn't have given for that POS party to have given us a decent moderate candidate as an option. Every year it seems I hate that party worse.

I think Kerry has occassionally let the truth slip out about what he thinks on the war on terror ("global test", "primarily a law enforcement issue", etc., etc.) before retreating and saying that's not what he meant.

I think Kerry's been occassionally clear about his economic plan raising money through higher taxes but he won't explain how those higher taxes (which he has alternatively allocated to his big health care entitlement, social security, national defense and deficit reduction) can be used three or four different times to actually fund his programs.

Those are my two big problems with Kerry. The courts are a big problems as well, but to the victor go the spoils on that level (although I fully expect the GOP to follow the Dem lead and filibuster those who are questionable). My problems with Kerry are primarily his view of the bad guys (as it was when we were fighting communism, Kerry seems more eager to "understand" the enemy rather than kill the enemy) and his economic plans that are gimmicks that I don't think he'll follow-through with anyway (I fully expect him to follow the Clinton lead and claim that he just can't deliver the tax relief he's been promising for the last year).

If Kerry wins I'll give the guy the benefit of the doubt and hope that on the two aforementioned issues Kerry turns out not to be the pacifist/socialist that I think he really is based on his history, views and votes.

I think I described what I'd feel with a Kerry victory as being something similar to what I felt like the afternoon the Chiefs lost to the Colts in the playoffs last year. That's probably pretty accurate, as were my feelings the next day when I pretty much moved on with my life.

The first line of defense from an attack by chemical or biological agents will be the medical community. But it will fail unless you have easy access for the whole population. In addition businesses are looking for relief from rising medical costs. This pushes the question toward some universal treatment. You will see this but with a Republican Congress I can't predict how exactly it will take place.

I would hope the first line of defense is in the military, law enforcement and border security to stop such an attack before it happens. The Clinton administration also proposed a socialized medical plan but, the United States was not then, nor is it now, ready to foot such and astronomical bill. I think Michael Badnarik has a better grip on the problem than either the Democrats or the current administration. He says “Health care and insurance costs will plummet if excess regulation is eliminated and malpractice awards are made only on the basis of real damages caused by real negligence. Lower costs, along with the savings from downsizing regulatory bureaucracy, will fund tax credits for those who establish Health Savings Accounts for themselves, their families, Medicare/Medicaid recipients, and the needy.”
In my opinion the problem is not that the government is doing too little but they are trying to do too much. The Government has a very narrow mandate in what their powers and responsibilities are supposed to be. Amendment X of the constitution states “The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the states, are reserved to the states respectively, or to the people. “ The federal government routinely craps all over this part of the constitution. The point is that the things that fall outside of the Federal Governments mandate (which is damn near everything) is a State matter. As much as the Republicans have lost their way in this matter whith the “no child left behind”, the faith based programs and other massive federal expenditures when Kerry tries to push through a national healthcare program I think they will return to these ideals. At least until they get another Republican President. :banghead:
