Kerry's decisive change

"We have traded a dictator for a chaos that has left America less secure"


Those words are from John Kerry's September 20th speech which marked a turning point in his bid for the office of president.

Kerry has taken a turn and is now representing himself as a different person rather than a better version of George W. Bush. Take, for instance, the recent Bush/Republican ads I have been seeing. You know the ones I am talking about. They have approximately 7 points on which Bush is strengthening our country. The only problem is that they all relate to the War on Terror. That does not buy a presidency for me. Kerry is out there presenting plans, most of which are for other points - not terror. Face it... this country has other problems within our borders.

Terror may be a problem but last time I checked, it's been three years since we had any issue whatsoever with terror on our own soil and that could have been prevented if the order had simply been given to shoot the planes down rather than let them fly, off course mind you, for 60-90 minutes. This didn't happen a few years back when even a small aircraft over Arkansas was escorted due to their inability to respond to communications. (Sorry, can't locate the particular story)

Plain and simple, the attacks were preventable. Terror isn't the only issue in 2004's election. Our economy is still crap. Our well-paying jobs are being sent overseas. We are at the mercy of unstable countries just so we can use their oil.

We need change. Kerry is change.
