I am a little tired of defending Bush's record constantly. We have been through Bush's limitations and failures so many times that even the arguments are getting a little tired. I think most everything valuable has been said. Now I want to challenge what would be the alternative to Bush. John Kerry's record has been only lightly discussed. Mostly only in the way it directly compares to Bush. I will list my reasons why Kerry shouldnt be a reasonable alternative. Some of those reasons will be partisan, while others will be more fair. I will let you decide which are which. Also, I will try not to rehash what has been argued already. I have notarized most of my references either in the quote or in the captions, however, I didn't want to take the time to mark them all. If you are unsure of a particular quote. highlight and google a short piece of the quote. Nearly all the quotes are google-able. If you still can't find it, ask me, Ill dig it back up when I have more time. Anyway, here goes.... Why you shouldn't vote for Kerry 1) John Kerry's National Service plan from his website: As President, John Kerry will have the courage to lead and call on all Americans to make our nation stronger. Whether it is protecting America from the threats of terrorism or addressing the problems we have at home, America’s new challenges will not be met by the same old answers of big government or big tax cuts for the wealthy. John Kerry will call on all Americans - tapping into the idealism and ingenuity of Americans and putting it to work on building a safer, stronger, and more secure nation. Americans already make an enormous difference in their communities, volunteering, in Boys and Girls Clubs or homeless shelters. Many Americans do full time service. John Kerry believes that in these times, we need to bolster these efforts with a nationwide commitment to national service. Whether it is a Summer of Service for our teenagers, helping young people serve their country in return for college, or the Older Americans in Service program, John Kerry’s plan will call on every American of every age and every background to serve. John Kerry will set a goal of one million Americans a year in national service within the next decade. John Kerry Outlines Plan to Require Service for High School Students Part of 100 days Plan to Enlist One Million Americans in National Service A Year On September 11th, 2001, America experienced the most terrible and deadly attack in its history. John Kerry believes we need to think big and do better and get more young Americans serving the nation. As part of his 100 day plan to change America, John Kerry will propose a comprehensive service plan that includes requiring mandatory service for high school students and four years of college tuition in exchange for two years of national service.
