Dear Free Williamsburg,
God help you, all of you, do you realize that no-Bush =
Kerry. Look at Kerry - arrogant, self-centered, out of touch
with the ordinary person (oh, maybe not these rich rock
band members), and an even bigger hypocrite and panderer
than Bill Clinton. Never had an idea in twenty years of
being a Senator, a coward in Vietnam (Not Fit to Serve).
It can't be you hate Bush for saving your asses so maybe
it's because he's a good Christian man who makes it harder
for you to look at yourself in the mirror? Or are you just
afraid the draft will be instituted again. Maybe, but not
by Bush. Kerry has indicated the possibility. If he gets
in, I'm all for seeing you Bush Bashers all running for
the exits - cowards that you are. I know you are cowards
because you are so ungracious in your criticism of George
W. Bush - a really nice, gnetle man and not a bit stupid,
no matter how much you wish it to be so. The only positive
in your viciousness is that it really makes me and other
fair minded people angry enough to register and vote for
George W. Bush.
Why do you think Bush is "in touch" with the people?
He's a pampered millionaire. Perhaps you mean he's in touch
with the Saudi Arabian royalty, his business partners. They
also happen to be Al Quada's business partners. Do some
research, this is a fact. (Fifteen of the September 11th
hijackers were Saudis and were given much of their money
from Saudi businesses.)
Why was Kerry a coward in Vietnam? He served admirably,
despite the fact that as a wealthy Bostonian, he didn't
even need to go. Bush never served, in fact the records
indicate that he was an AWOL deserter.
How has Bush "saved my ass?" He ignored information
from the CIA that warned him of an Al Quaeda plot to hijack
airplanes. He sat in a classroom while the second plane
hit the World Trade Center and did nothing. He pulled most
troops out of Afghanistan before even finding Osama. He
started a war under the guise of WMD, when there were none
to be found. He infuriated the rest of the world by defying
the UN, calling Germany, Russia and France irrelevant, and
deeming Iraq, Iran, and North Korea the "axis of evil."
(Even if this were true, xenophobic rhetoric like this is
not an indicator of someone who is interested in diplomacy).
After Bush deemed North Korea "evil," they began
teaching their children in school that the US was planning
for a preemptive strike against their country. Does that
make you feel safe given the fact that North Korea is very
close to becoming nuclear?
Additionally, nothing has been done about the Abu Ghraib
prison scandal. If Rumsfeld respected the nobility of this
country, he would have stepped down. Not doing so endangered
the lives of the troops. The insurgency was empowered by
his lack of humility.
Iraq is currently a breeding ground for terrorists. Do
you feel safer? Are you happy that our troops are in Iraq,
largely without the help of international soldiers? Daily,
Halliburton workers are making a hell of a lot more money
than our troops, often working side-by-side and performing
the same tasks minus the combat. Is this good for troop
morale? Bush has even cut veteran benefits, so the troops
can expect little compensation for their bravery if they
return at all. Plus, he's banned media coverage of the flag-draped
coffins of our fallen. Why can't we honor the one's who
have died? This would not be good PR for Bush's reelection,
Our economy is horrible. The deficit is larger than it
ever has been. Democrats and Republicans are furious at
one another. Bush even wants to write hate into the Constitution
by banning gay marriage. People in this country have been
illegally imprisoned and held indefinitely without having
any charges against them because of the so-called Patriot
Act. Should I go on?
I'm assuming you consider yourself to be a Christian and
therefore vote on 5 issues - low taxes, abortion, guns,
anti-gay rights, and capital punishment. I can't change
your mind, but I urge you to not blindly support Bush without
doing some research into his oil connections in the Middle
East. Halliburton (Cheney's former company) has made billions
on the Iraqi war and have been charged with fraud three
times in the past year. You will pick up the bill, which
is in the millions. The value of the American dollar is
lower than it has been since the Seventies. The "tax
cut" went primarily to the top 1% - AKA Bush's wealthy
friends. And even though we received a tax refund, we are
now paying more for health insurance and education while
receiving less social security benefits for our elderly.
The "cuts" are a myth. Were you not more financially
confident under Clinton?
Finally, why am I a coward? Do you know me or any of the
writers at our publication? Is opposing a divisive leader
who pisses on the Constitution and enrages our allies overseas
I'm lukewarm on Kerry. He's a politician. But I'm furious
with George Bush. He is a weak, power-hungry leader who
uses religion and deception to divide people.
And about that Unfit for Command book.... Kerry
was an antiwar protester -- something that a lot of people,
including the people who wrote that book - still strangely
resent. Factor in money as well and you'll see the motive
for their spin. Even John McCain says that book is bullshit.
And for the record, I don't think Bush is stupid. I think
he is narrow-minded, homophobic, xenophobic, and greedy.
And by the way, Bush did reinstate the draft already.
He is currently recalling reservists who have completed
their time. They are serving involuntarily.
Oh yeah, and as our banner states, he fucks pigs.
