    www.georgebush.com is pretty self explanatory of his view on the rest of the world, if you're living outside the USA...

    The site is blocked for anyone not coming from the US.

    (Less trash on the internet for the rest of us in other words )

    The Bush Record
    At the start of his Administration, President George W. Bush made clear his objective to citizens and taxpayers, "We are here to make progress, we are not here to mark time."

    President Bush has used his time in office to make remarkable progress. He has charted a bold course and established a record of accomplishment and far-reaching results for the American people. From taxes to the economy, from homeland security to national defense, from improving education to ensuring better health care for seniors, President Bush has worked with Congress to bring higher expectations of Government, greater accountability, better service, and more freedom and choice for American citizens.

    As the world has seen over the past few years, the American people do not face the future with fear; they embrace the challenges of the future because they know that America is capable of overcoming them. With three-and a- half years of results, the American people know the foundation has been set for even greater things to come.

    Over the next four years, President Bush will continue to pursue a bold agenda of reform and change. He will build on a solid foundation of accomplishment to bring about a safer world and a more hopeful America. In this way, President Bush will continue to show that, as Ronald Reagan said, "for America there will always be a bright dawn ahead."


    Economy:
    Jobs & The Economy
    The economy is strong and getting stronger. The Presidentís pro-growth policies have helped drive the economy and move the recovery forward, putting more money in the pockets of Americaís families and laying a foundation for robust growth and job creation now and for years to come.

    Protecting the American People
    The Presidentís most important job is to protect and defend the American homeland. Since September 11, 2001, the nation has made tremendous progress achieving this goal.

    Making Health Care More Accessible and Affordable
    President Bush believes that all Americans should have access to affordable, high-quality health care. To achieve that goal, he has created new health savings accounts, created a prescription drug benefit under Medicare, strengthened Medicaid and SCHIP, provided a health insurance tax credit and proposes medical liability reform.

    Bipartisan Education Reform
    President Bush submitted his framework for education reform, No Child Left Behind (NCLB), three days after taking office and secured overwhelming bipartisan support less than a year later. NCLB represents the most significant overhaul of Federal education policy since 1965, when the Elementary and Secondary Education Act was passed.

    A National Security Strategy that Meets the Challenges of Our Time
    Defending our nation against its enemies is the first and fundamental commitment of the federal government. On September the 11th, 2001, America learned that oceans will no longer protect us from the threats of a new era.

    Preserving the Beauty and Quality of Our Environment
    President Bush believes that good stewardship of the environment is not just a personal responsibility, it is a public value. Americans are united in the belief that it is important to preserve our natural heritage and safeguard the land around us.

    Social Security:
    Strengthening Social Security
    President Bush believes that we need to explore new ways to ensure that Social Security remains strong and financially secure for Americaís children and grandchildren. The President formed a bipartisan Presidential Commission to review Social Security and recommend reforms to put the system on sound financial ground. He has repeatedly stressed the need for modernization of the Social Security System. In addition to saving Social Security, President Bush has proposed solutions to strengthen pension plans and enhance retirement security for all Americans.

    Securing Our Nationís Energy Future
    President Bush is committed to Americaís energy future. Since his first weeks in office, the passage of a comprehensive and balanced national energy policy has been a top priority for President Bush and his Administration. America will be more prosperous and more secure when it is less dependent on foreign sources of energy. Reliable and affordable energy is critical to Americaís economic security, national security, and homeland security.

    here is a snippet...of course this is open to your own interpretation... i had to remove the pictures because of the forum set up

    itís an election with no Democrats, in one of the whitest states in the union, where rich candidates pay $35 for your votes. Or, as Republicans call it, their vision for the future.

    Thanks VIDCC.

    I wonder why access to this site is restricted ? There seems to be nothing here apart from usual political self praise and indoctrination.



    I'm sure Mr. Bush knows best.

    edit: The story
    The blocking of browsers sited outside the US began in the early hours of Monday morning.

    Since then people outside the US trying to browse the site get a message saying they are not authorised to view it.

    The blocking does not appear to be due to an attack by vandals or malicious hackers, but as a result of a policy decision by the Bush camp.

    The site can still be seen using anonymous proxy services that are based in the US. Some web users in Canada also report that they can browse the site.

    Readers of the boingboing weblog also found that viewers could get at the site by using alternative forms of the George W Bush domain name.

    The pattern of traffic to the website suggests that the blocking was not due to an attack by vandals or politically motivated hackers.

    Geographic blocking works because the numerical addresses that the net uses to organise itself are handed out on a regional basis.

    On 21 October, the George W Bush website began using the services of a company called Akamai to ensure that the pages, videos and other content on its site reaches visitors.

    Mike Prettejohn, president of Netcraft, speculated that the blocking decision might have been taken to cut costs, and traffic, in the run-up to the election on 2 November.

    He said the site may see no reason to distribute content to people who will not be voting next week.

    You can't see the super-secret part that details the takeover of Canada this winter though.

    Did you think the NHL strike was not orchestrated by the US government?

    While your players are in Europe, we will sweep up there and steal all of your seals of mass destruction.
    Aren't we in the trust tree, thingey?
