Bush started unnecessary war; compromised civil rights; and I resent his ignorant fundamentalist religiosity which apparently makes him think that he, a messenger from God, need not take advice or listen to opposing viewpoints. He turned a huge $ surplus into a huge deficit that if he is re-elected our descendants will pay for for generations. He is the most "inauthentic" seeming president I have seen in my lifetime. To me he looks as if he knows he is way over his head and I can't help feeling it will be a relief to him to not be re-elected.

I am a Republican, but Charlotte (response above) hit the nail on the head. We cant afford another 4 years of this. I think Kerry is a dud, but the alternative will harm the USA for years to come. I travel alot, world wide. Most people loved Americans 4 years ago, now it's really better if you say you're from Canada.

I agree w/Charlotte. I am an Independent. I fear an even greater effort to erode civil rights if Bush is re-elected. There is an atmosphere of fear & uncertainty in the country that seems to have less to do with terrorism, and more to do with the current administration's efforts to scare us into submission. I'd also like to think that the US president is cognizant of our place in the world, and what it means for the US to be a world citizen. And I voted for Kerry/Edwards.

People in other countries were willing to credit Bush's initial deeply damaging four years to having carried his election through vote fraud in Florida and as such absolve the public from any responsability. If he succeeds in re-election inspite of the performance his administration has turned in, we the public will be held accountable, and whatever charitable commiseration still willing to credit us with being hapless victims to political manipulation will dissolve into disgust. During a recent trip to Guatemala, my former country of Peace Corps service, I was kept so aware of hostile surge in sentiment towards our government's, and its persoanl relevance to previous good will bodes ill for another four years of Bush policies John Prybot, RPCV: Guatemala, C.A. 1970-1978
