The plain fact is that Kerry has shrapnel in his leg from serving in the military and Bush has a cheer-leaders uniform from his draft-dodge. Bush wants to take everyone’s privacy away with the Patriot Act by making it permanent. If someone is always monitoring you by tapping your phone, internet, and home are you ever really free? Privacy is a fundamental right that is protected by the fourth amendment. The Patriot Act undermines the principles of our founding fathers. Their are more poor people in America because of the Bush administration policies according to the US census Bureau. The world is less secure from terrorism, as indicated from Amnesty International, because the Bush administration has falsely used 911 as a link to Iraq. The 911 committee has indicated no link between Sad am and Bin Laden. Last time I checked, a lie for a good cause or bad cause, is still a lie.
