Um... not really.
I'm against religious instruction in schools
Kerry's with you, Bush's against you.
Really? When did Bush say he wanted to start putting Prayer in public schools?
As much as the left will try to argue this point, when Bush says he wants funding for "religious based instruction", he's talking about school vouchers that can be used to allow students to go to private schools (even ones that are religious). That's a whole different ball of wax, and an initiative I agree with.
I'm pro choice
Kerry's with you, Bush's against you.
Really? Where do you get that other then your automatic assumption that Republican==ReligiousRight?
I haven't heard of Bush talking about repealing Roe v Wade at all.
You're trying to push your method of picking candidates onto me. You assume that everyone in a party is all the same, so you vote according to the party line. I don't make that assumption. Just because you can't comprehend the difference doesn't mean that it's not there...
I'm pro-"right to bear arms"
Both candidates positions align with yours.
Sure. You still have given me no reason to vote for Kerry instead of Bush here.
Neither candidates positions align with yours, but Kerry's is closer.
Heh. Didn't Bush admit to smoking pot? At least he didn't try some BS about not inhaling...
Again. You can't just assume a position based on the party. If Kerry makes legalizing marijuana and other prohibited drugs a plank in his platform, then I might even vote for him. But until he does, this gives me no reason to switch.
I'm against big government and entitlement
Clearly Bush is not your man. He's done more to create new entitlements and gaurantee old ones than any president since FDR.
Yeah. Right. How is it the left can't even be consistent with its own arguments?
How can you possibly justify constantly arguing that Bush is about reducing benefits to the poor, and giving tax breaks to the rich, and that his economic plans "only benefit you if you make over 200k a year", and now you are saying he's done more to create entitlements then any president since FDR?
Why don't you vote for Bush then Smash? Seems like he's right up your alley...
Can you at least keep your arguments consitent? He can't be both at the same time Smash? He's either better for the poor, or for the rich. Pick one reason to slam him. You lose total credibility when you pull something this dumb.
EDIT: Why on earth can we only make 5 quotes in a post? Someone fix this... Quote by Smash
I'm for supply side economic plans
You don't even know what that means, so it's meaningless to try to vote for someone who belives in the same thing.
Ah. Which nicely explains the several dozen times I've argued economics with you and *you* have pointed to my argument, called it "Supply Side Economics", declared that it doesn't work, and then gone on with your argument.
If I don't know what it is, how is it that you label my economic position as Supply Side Smash? Your own words contradict eachother. This is just pathetic, even for you... Quote by Smash
Both andidates are about the same economic plan wise with the exception of Kerry wanting to roll back some of the more ludicrous parts of the Bush tax cuts to pay for the War.
Whatever. We've discussed the differences between Republican economic plans and Democrat economic plans. They are different. The total approach is different. You know it. I know it. That's the main reason I will tend to vote Republican unless there's an overwhelming reason not to (especially at the federal level).
If Kerry's plan is so similar to Bush's, then why are you constantly saying Bush botched up the US economy? Again. You can't have it both ways. Either Bush is doing things very differently from Kerry, in which case I'm justified in choosing to vote for Bush based on those differences, or their economic plans are very similar, in which case you have no justification to slam Bush on the economy.
Pick one Smash. I just ask for consistency here... Edited, Fri May 14 20:44:26 2004 by gbaji
