Why Using A.net As Political Front For Bush?

Wed Mar 10, 2004 6:32 am

Why are so many people using a.net to forward their political beliefs?

Come on guys, get over it, the people of America will decide later this year so just leave it. After all each one to their own, and making statements of I hate Bush is childish, because he does have positive things and he does have flaws. Like all human beings.

Take a look at this and see what kind of answers you're likely to get.

EDIT: make that "you're getting"

Well, unlike some other non-political forums political discutions aren't banned here. People can express their opinions. If a person would always think the same way as you ("everybody has positve things and flaws") about politicians, than they wouldn 't go to elections at all. Yes, everybody has positive or negative sides... But what is positive and negative depends on each person. Some may see e.g. Bush's war in Iraq a positive thing, others negative (and of course this doesn't stop at foreign politics). This is the point of all political discutions - try to proove that your side is right (right meaning OK, not political right). If this would be not needed, there wouldn't be any electoral campaigns or such things.

If you don't like it, don't click on the thread. Simple as that. Nobady is making you read them. Let people who want to discuss politics do so. American politics may not matter to you, but it matters to most Americans.

American politics may not matter to you, but it matters to most Americans.

Well sorry to disappoint you, but according to the U.S. NATIONAL CENTER FOR POLICY ANALYSIS

Analysts who think everyone should vote called the turnout for the 2000 election "dismal," since only a little over half of the voting age population voted.

A total of 105,399,313 citizens, or 51.2 percent of adult residents of the United States, voted in 2000 -- up from 96,277,872, or 49 percent, in 1996.

So clearly with only 51.2% of eligible voters even bothering to vote, it is damn safe to say that half the American polulation doesn't give a damn about politics afterall.

Even with my views on Bush, I think your title is a bit misleading, to say the least. It isn't a one-way street on the debate, now is it? There are many who support Bush on here, and many who oppose his policies. And, as has been said over and over...and over.........and over.............and over-if you don't like a subject, don't participate.

No my problem is not reading them, my problem is people with their stupid once sided views of bush is only bad, the man has some good to him. It is even better to read if peopel make contrustive debates about why it would be good for him tog o or stay. Not just to stay he is an idiot and must leave.

Personally I am pro Bush.
Often good discussions are started just later to be ruiend by people making funny points etc.

Moolies, there have been plenty of pro-Bush topics on here. And, with all due respect, too damn bad if you don't like the fact some of us think he's a lout and a poor president, OK? We have a right ot our opinion, and it's hot up to you to tell us what we can or can't type about.

I think the fact you're Pro-Bush is slightly coloring your attitude. I don't see you bashing those who say that Kerry is a lout.

I personally think Kerry could be a very good president as well, i didnt once say dont post ur opinion, i said dont make stupid comments, liek bush is a moron etc. and not back it up, i think its good people will disagree with him and with every one.

Also just becuase i support bush doesnt mena i need to support those who bash kerry, im more mature than them and most certainley you that u need to say such things. Your just reading into my post to much

I don't think I read any more than what was there. But again, people will express their opinions as they see fit, and, as long as they abide by the rules, there's nothing either of us can do about it. Is that not a fair assessment?

Have you not heard the expression of your reading into something to much?
