Welcome to FYM, Abby.

FYM is a political/religious discussion forum, as you've probably noticed. A thread that does nothing more than make some unsubstantiated claims about someone or something would usually be closed. Since you're new here, however, I don't want to close your thread. We'd like to hear your views on Kerry, and please keep in mind that we do *try* (emphasis on *try*, LOL) to keep this place pretty free of mudslinging. There's enough of that in politics as it is.

Thanks.

Yeah, we have all sorts of opinions and points of view here, but it's not our practice to say "Candidate X is an hole" or whatever. Rather, we will say what we like or don't like about Candidate X or maybe Party X in terms of policies and/or ideas.

I think Douglas Adams said it best:

"To summarize: it is a well-known fact that those people who must want to rule people are, ipso facto, those least suited to do it. To summarize the summary: anyone who is capable of getting themselves made President should on no account be allowed to do the job. To summarize the summary of the summary: people are a problem." -- chapter 28, The Restaurant at the End of the Universe

I sometimes wonder if it's not absolutely insane to want such a killer job. Could we be voting for people who are out of their minds in some way?

I would definitely say that is a common practice in this forum to say that Bush is a hole or something similar. It is actually refreshing to see the opposing candidate to Bush get wacked considering the overwhelming amount of bashing, often unobjective, that Bush gets in this place.

Welcome to the forum.

I am quite sure that the only way you can achieve the highest positions in politics and business is by an enormous hunger for power and not because of superior idealism

There's a difference between unobjective criticism of a politician (and let's face it, there's not a single objective poster in FYM) which takes the form of "I dislike politician X because he..." and starting a thread which says "he's a lying sleazebag and I hate him" without any form of supporting evidence.

If we want to have a debate about Kerry's good and bad points, that's cool. But realistically just saying "I hate hate hate him" isn't usually the start of a good debate.

I don't recall saying Bush is a hole. Admittedly I don't plan to vote for him in November, but that's not the same thing.

I have tried to look for the good in Kerry but I didn't get much further than the at-least-he-is-not-Bush argument. let's just say it sounds as if his policies suck less than the one you have now, but we'll first have to see if he can walk the walk. I'd like to find out what his economy plan is, that will decide the election, doesn't really matter how many people die in the illegal war in Iraq or how Kerry's voting record has been. As long as there isn't a big scandal people are going to vote for the guy that'll give them the biggest wallet. Erst kommt das Fressen, dann die Moral, it makes me sick really.

Thanks for starting the thread, Abby-whatsyername! I'll change my vote now! Oh, damn.

I forgot.

It's not my country.

Incidentally, I hear that a poll by the Washington Times found that apparently terrorists would be more likely to prefer a Kerry presidency.

Personally I think this says more about the Washington Times than anything else.

I think EVERY thread should have "super duper" in the title!
