I don't like the direction that President Bush has taken our country. I don't like the way he deceived us into a frivolous war while alienating our potential allies. I don't like the way he gave tax cuts to the rich and bailed out his corporate friends. And I don't like his assault on our individual rights.
Mr. Bush's vision for America seems like socialism for the wealthy, and capitalism for the poor. We need health care, not wealth care. We need jobs and the educational infrastructure to prepare our children for them, not another standardized exam.
Now that I've seen more of John Kerry, I can see that he represents so much that Bush doesn't. Kerry has wisdom and intelligence, integrity and courage. He has experience and strength, morality and principle. Kerry is a strong leader who can steer our country back on course through these difficult times. John Kerry will put our priorities back where they belong.
