Let’s get Political…Political…

First and foremost, if you get the reference for the above title, I will personally send you a nice gift in the mail (* Rimfya got it… thanks for playing tho)
Yes, I am for Edwards. Yes I consider myself a Democrat. I really admire what his stances are, and I could care less about his $400 haircut (debate that is going on) Considering his track record vs. many other Republicans in office right now, Edwards, to me has the best intentions. Coming in second would be Sen. John McCain. I know he’s Republican, but he is one of the few Repub’s to stand up against Bush and Loyal Bushys concerning POW treatments & war policies.
anyway. Here are some recent quotes from Edwards I really enjoyed. Mostly, because these statements made me feel proud to be a American again. He is right, our political system is the PEOPLE’S GOVERNMENT, not the REPUBLICAN PARTY’S GOVERNMENT.
“The President should demand that Alberto Gonzales resign, and he should fire Karl Rove. They have turned the Department of Justice into the Department of Political Payback. In doing so, they deny every American the legitimate expectation that justice will be administered without reference to partisan considerations.
“If President Bush doesn’t have the courage to fire Gonzales, he should step up and resign for the good of the country.
“And with a new investigation aimed squarely at Karl Rove, the President should fire him if he continues to refuse to testify under oath. New reports that federal employees were urged to assist Republican candidates through their official duties are outrageous. This is the American people’s government, not the Republican Party’s.
“There is too much at stake – from the war in Iraq to 45 million Americans without health care – to let this continue. We don’t need the distraction of more investigations of criminal activity in the Bush Administration.”
I post this because I know my view, I know my passion and I know that we need to be involved more in politics. I could care less what side you like, just get to know your candidate and your issues and fight for them. Just take a few moments to consider each side with out bias, select and move forward.
