I hadn't seen this until now, and I know flames arise here against pro-lifers, pro-Bushers, and anything not left-wing
I accept that. I still hope some can do as Safemommy and summermom have suggested and keep their arguments out of this thread.
I am "supportive" of Bush, on a few things, much of what Nursingmama already meantioned, so I will just say that first and foremost, I vote (and I didn't vote for Bush, but, you don't even want to hear who I did vote for
) for people who are anti-abortion and who vow to do what it takes (peacefully) to rid our nation of legalized abortion. That is always the first thing on my list. If there were a democratic candidate who was pro-life and a republican who was pro-choice, I would vote for the democrat. So, that said, I also agree with NM that I like Bush's education policies, and especially his support of vouchers.
I like his ideas on taxes, I give my tax returns to charities of my choice and I think others should be free to do the same with their money, I believe me giving money directly to charities that help children, and the poor, is far better than watching the government screw up in doling it out.
There are so many issues I care deeply about, but ending abortion comes first for me, so I wish there were more pro-life candidates to choose from. Also, one last note about Bush- and I know this is not a view espoused much on here- I think he is more honest and moral than most other politicians, although no person is perfect and without skeletons.
So, there's one more on activism, what does that make 4 of us? I think all the others have been scared away, or at least that's what many have told me.
