"Remember, a vote for Other is a vote for Bush."

Nader says that he gets just as many votes from Republicans as from Democrats.

Anonymous Monk says:
"I can't believe so many people are voting for Bush, he's a blatant racist, but then again I'm a minority :("

Hmm. I haven't really noticed any racism from either candidate. Can you give specifics?

"In addition to that, I've just seen the film "Farenheid 9/11" from Michael Moore some days ago, and if only 5 percent of the contents are true, I really wonder why Bush and some of his friends are still in political positions... "

Well, the same could be said of "Unfit for Command", except "Unfit for Command" probably has significantly more truth in it.

Discipulus says:
"the problem is not the man. The real problem is the international behaviour of that country. you know something about Monroe's doctrine ? wants amerika renounce the role of world's policeman ? wants rethink about an industrial developement that ignore the human and wilderness hope of life ? want they stop to help israel to make illigal war against palestinian people ? want someone smash the weapon's trade ? lor*"

There's always going to be either a world policeman or a world gangster. I'd rather have the policeman, though I don't necessarily agree with every war / skirmish we've fought.

As for industrial development, ecological awareness is directly proportional to per-capita income. If we didn't have the industrial development, some other, much less careful country would be running things here.

And one could debate that since the Palestinians are illegally blowing themselves up in the middle of bunches of Israeli civilians, and since pretty much the entire Middle East has tried to destroy Israel several times, Israel is justified in taking action to protect itself. The US supports Israel simply because Israel is a buffer zone - without it, the suicide bombers would be busy visiting us next.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>

to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
