    A book by John Kerry.

    http://ice.he.net/~freepnet/kerry/in...pic=NewSoldier

    Happy reading to all the Kerry voters here.

    I wonder why he wouldn't allow a reprinting?

    Well, no...actually I don't wonder that at all; the "why" of it is quite clear.

    He stood up for something he believed in.

    Have you never done this?

    Surely, this is what your country is all about...whether you personally believe it is of course upto you. However, I feel you have no right to judge others that do this...

    Over time, your outlook changes too... what you believed when you were 25, is not necessarily the same thing you'd believe in now.

    In the UK there used to be a saying, when the Labour Party was actually a socialist party, and the Tories werent as Right Wing....

    "If you dont vote Labour when your 18 you havent got a heart; If you still vote Labour when your 50 you havent got a Brain"

    The Parties have changed, and the expression means nothing now, in my humble opinion...at least in terms of UK politics... however the meaning is obvious.

    There you are. I was about to organize a search party to see if we could find you.

    I do it all the time, Rat, and I'm doing it right now.

    The relevant point here is that if indeed Kerry's beliefs have changed, there is nothing in his campaign rhetoric or his entire political career that refutes it (please spare me his paltry commentary about the brashness of youth); his entire Senate record-such as it he can be said to have accumulated one-is merely a continuance of his record of inane pacifism.

    He would be worse even than Jimmy Carter.

    Carter can at least pound nails; Kerry should pound sand.

    I'm sure you believe that, having not experienced the horror of Jimmy Carter as your Commander-in-Chief.

    The man was unutterably inept.

    Although sometimes the obvious answer is the right one.

    Neither have particularly charmed the airwaves with their debating techniques.

    Edit: Was Carter really so bad? *tiptoes quietly away*
