6 Reasons Bush is Bad for Kids:
Just for the record:
Sen. Kerry is no one's savior by any means- I don't like the guy, personally but I don't have to marry him and I don't want to be his friend. He is very qualified, he is a tried leader, he is serious and we need that, what with all the very serious things he will have to necessarily deal with.
Electing him/defeating Bush, IS a beginning- ONLY a beginning. We must make and KEEP him accountable from the start, so that another mess is much less likely and liable to happen right away again. That is how we BEGIN to take our country back and we must if we want our kids to have anything of real value left.
It's a start, and it will take time. NO ONE elected will be the best choice to someone else's sensibilities for sure, but we DO need to be realistic and most importantly, we MUST win!!!!
Again, the reality is, this new president's term can only be a start because it will take a long time to clean up the mess- and like at my house (maybe yours? too)...when doing a heavy duty cleaning, the mess appears worse before it really looks better.
But we are all up to it, because we have a vision that includes everyone this time- not just the "have's and the have-more's", as Mr. Bush described his base, in jest- and as my mom used to say, many a truth is said in jest.
Mr. Clinton may be regarded as and called many things, good and bad, by many people- but one thing he said really has stuck with me ALL these years. He said he felt it was important for us to "all go up together"- to access greater opportunities and a brighter future...TOGETHER! I stick by that.
I hold that vision with hope for your children and mine.
Our children and grandchildren must NOT be held responsible for the costs of what has come to pass in the last 3+ years. We MUST stop the bankrupting- morally and financially and environmentally, of this country.
Thank you, Newmom_27...you give me hope.
Hugs to you...
