Kerry Against Bush

category kerry | anti-war / imperialism | news report author Friday October 22, 2004 14:51author by Seán o'Ciarraí - Kerry Against Bushauthor address tralee Report this post to the editors

Kerry for the Double !!

Kerry is America's oldest friend, and a true one at that. When the first Kerry man, Brendan, set foot in America circa 575 AD it created a unique link between the lands and a close bond between their peoples. Over the centuries millions of Kerry people have journeyed across the atlantic to our western neighbour, America. These people and their descendants played a hugh part in the building of that great nation, that land of freedom. Also, over the years, millions of Americans have come to visit Kerry the land of their ancestors.
Recently, we in Kerry have become concerned about what is happening across the water. It appears that America is currently ruled by a president and political regime who both lie to, and, manipulate our American friends. This results in restriction of freedom and human rights. Also, by lying to other nations, violating and ignoring international laws, treaties and conventions, America's respect and credibility around the globe is waning.

The Kerry Against Bush movement was created by GW Bush on the day he uttered those now infamous words 'you are either with us or againsts us'. Considering the Bush regime's attitudes and past actions we could in no way be considered a suporter of his, so therefore by his own logic we must be against him. This was not our choice, it was his. Who is this 'us' bush speaks of? To us the 'us' Bush speaks of are Bush, his cronies, his wealthy backers, the corporations and media behind him. This "us" is not the ordinary people of America, Kerry Against Bush stands in solidarity with the decent, honest and hardwoking people of America and the world who have been lied to, misled, had their liberty and freedom curtailed,rights abolished and led into an illogical world of fear, hate and war.
Kerry is a place with strong ties to America. Kerry is America closest neighbour to the east. The first Europeans said to have crossed the atlantic to the 'promised land' of America were from Kerry. Since that day millions of Kerry people have travelled to America in the hope of a better life. Kerry people and their descendants played key roles in the foundation and building of that great country. They fought in the American revolution, signed the constitution, built the cities, roads and rail ways.

We the people of Kerry have invested too much time and effort in America to see is all ruined by George Bush and his cronies..

please spread the Kerry people and Bush haters everywhere.

Kerry Abú

Imagine it pouring, it's raining down on us,
Mosh pits outside the oval office
Someone's trying to tell us something, maybe this is God just saying
we're responsible for this monster, this coward, that we have empowered
This is Bin Laden, look at his head nodding,
How could we allow something like this, Without pumping our fist
Now this is our, final hour
Let me be the voice, and your strength, and your choice
Let me simplify the rhyme, just to amplify the noise
Try to amplify the times it, and multiply it by six
Teen million people are equal of this high pitch
Maybe we can reach Al Quaida through my speech
Let the President answer on high anarchy
Strap him with AK-47, let him go
Fight his own war, let him impress daddy that way
No more blood for oil, we got our own battles to fight on our soil
No more psychological warfare to trick us to think that we ain't loyal
If we don't serve our own country we're patronizing a hero
Look in his eyes, it's all lies, the stars and stripes
They've been swiped, washed out and wiped,
And Replaced with his own face, mosh now or die
If I get sniped tonight you'll know why, because I told you to fight.

And as we proceed, to mosh through this desert storm, in these closing statements, if they should argue, let us beg to differ, as we set aside our differences, and assemble our own army, to disarm this weapon of mass destruction that we call our president, for the present, and mosh for the future of our next generation, to speak and be heard, Mr. President, Mr. Senator

Kerry is no alternative for the American people. If he is elected he will implement the same anti worker agenda, he will oppose gay marriage, he will not sign Kyoto, he will continue the occupation of Iraq and increase troop numbers..... What the American working class and oppressed ethnic minorities need is a party that is independent of big business and will fight for workers rights, against corporate American, for the envoronment and against the occupation of Iraq. Such a party will not be brought any closer by voting for Kerry.

"he will oppose gay marriage"

Not true, he will let every state to decide this

"he will not sign Kyoto"

Clinton would have signed, why not Kerry?

"he will continue the occupation of Iraq"

He does not have any choice but to do so. He cannot let Iraq be another Afghanistan, civil war etc. This is the benefit of iraqi people too.

"and increase troop numbers"

Depends on how the situation in Iraq continues. If there will be peace the he will propably get all soldiers out of there ASAP

"What the American working class and oppressed ethnic minorities need is a party that is independent of big business and will fight for workers rights"

Communist party you mean? Propaganda and oppression. No thanks, says workers around America.

No. But things good be much worse than today if US army decides to leave Iraq NOW. It would be battleground for rivalry islamic and ethnic groups just like Afghanistan in the 90's.

10-20% of population in that country died and the cruelty cannot even be described. Decicion to go war was a mistake, but once you have started it, you cannot just quit whenever you want and leave these poor Iraqis there.

USA have the obligation to secure Iraq before they leave. This means building Iraqi army and police forces that can take responsibility over the country when US soldiers leave. This is not done yet. Taking the troops out before this is done would be crime against Iraqi people.

So it is interesting that he reads Bush as merely attempting to please a somewhat distant and perhaps often absent father. And he critiques Bush's attempt to impress the old man insofar as W. used other young men's lives up in the process, instead of strapping on an AK-47 himself. Eminem knows about packing heat, and was accused of pistol-whipping a rival from the rap group Insane Clown Posse. (Actually, this would be a good epithet for Rumsfeld, Wolfowitz, Feith, Cheney and Bush).

How are anarchists campaigning in the States at the moment. There is obviously a huge desire in the anti war movement to get Bush out and vote against him. How are Anarchists getting the ear of these people?

In the unlikely event of US troops being pulled out of Iraq any time soon, I look forward to seeing postings here along the lines that the US arrived in Iraq, screwed everything up and then left when they couldn't handle the consequences.
Irrespective of one's opinion of whether they should have gone in there in the first place, the fact remains that an immediate withdrawal would be a disaster. The US have a moral responsibility to fix what they broke, not to cut and run.
