    I'd prefer having Bush as president than Kerry.. Kerry's just an extremist redneck who cares only for the wealth of his family. But thats just my opinion.
    You may well be right, but it'd be wrong for me to pass judgement as I don't know much about the guy...

    If he wins and promptly invades North Korea or something, I'll happily agree with you (though I won't be very happy as those dudes wouldn't be push-overs like Iraq and would probably start nuking England!)...

    lol... nuking england.. lmao.. thats funny. But yeah, Bush keeps his political debating to the facts, while Kerry attacks Bush personally. Calling him a turn-coat and whatnot.. Its pathetic when someone has to resort to name-calling to win a election.

    It's the way of the world... In run-up to a Free State election a whle back, loads of oil had been found off the Mayo coast. The government sold the rights to American companies for a short term financial gain to make the economy look better... Such things happen, it's bad - but heh...

    He doesn't Kerry could probably win the election purely because he isn't Bush. Apparently Bushs support is plumeting.

    ok... Bush got us into this whole thing with Iraq, only he can get us out of it.. Kerry is to much a hick to do anything, he'd dig us deeper, or he'd give up. Personally I think this whole Iraq thing is overplayed, overused, and getting EXTREMELY old! Kerry doesn't have the brains nor the guts to get us out.

    Propably. But regardless of how people behave as individuals, the Americans, as a people, have behaved in a way that justifies a certain degree of contempt.

    Heh, you generalize sir.. and to do so is ignorant. Not everyone is alike. I am an american, and while I feel that going to Iraq was justified with 911.. I believe that we needn't have been there as long as we have been. I'm a good person, and because of something that a select few people have done you wish to categorize me with those who chose wrong? I find that extremely.. vindictive.

    I think its fairly justifiable to judge a nation by the actions of its politicians (in the case of a democracy at least) as these representitives are put forward by the general populace after all,though perhaps America (at least from 2000-2004) could be an exception as the politicians were put forward by the electoral college/supreme court rather than the general populace.

    I still don't think you should judge a populace on the actions of a select few.. no matter HOW those few came to power. It still seems unfair.. unjust.. and wrong.

    Isn't it common knowledge that politicians are corrupt though? I could've sworn that it was.
