LOL! Look at the posts and general tempo of the replies to threads and it is glaringly obvious to those of us outside of the USA!!! Most on here seem to be right-wing and republican. The Board is actually quite fun when you read some of the jaw-dropping outrageous comments!

Me? Not American, but if I were, would feel frustrated at the choice that offers very little to choose between. The Democrats usually seem to offer the best options for America and the world, but even with the massive opportunities Bush's blundering has given Kerry for political gain, it's still not clear what Kerry is offering. So I'd be undecided.

From these posts why would u say that they have no tolerance of anyone different?

There are conservatives outside of white middle-class USA too. The owner of this board is British, I am Canadian, there are conservative Indians and pro-Bush Pakistanis. Besides, your labeling is offensive, you might as well just add redneck too, it would ease the concience of whichever mod loses his patience first and bans you.

Kerry is a known liar. Why would anyone vote for him?

I believe that most American democrats would be voting for what the party can offer rather than the qualities of the candidate himself. A modern U.S. president simply needs to be marketable, rather than intelligent, these days. Admittedly though, Americans are facing a bleak choice this time.

If Kerry is a liar (and those are simply the election-driven claims of the Republican press), his record will still be many times better than the public lies of Bush and Rumsfeld which have resulted in American deaths.

Perhaps in the future when the choice involves Hilary Clinton followed by John Edwards as Democrat Presidential candidates, hopefully American voters might turn out to vote in credible numbers and make a convincing Democrat victory a reality.

No, Kerry is a well established liar, and the press in the US is left leaning, not right.

Hillary stands no chance at winning an election. Less than zero.

She is probably the single most hated political figure in the US today.

Amen to that. BTW, she won the senator election vs Rick Lazio in 2000, who is a good friend of my family I should add. It sickens me when one says Hillary is a nice, caring lady. She would murder her own family in return for political gains.

He's a politician. Lying goes with the territory. It's how well you cover your butt that makes the difference between a good politician and a bad one.

The combo of those 2 would be even worse. I guess that would make Bush a liar of epic proportions then. ;)

Yeah, righties want to shoot everyone who doesn't agree.

Oh, yeah. I'm the ultimate pansy, the moderate who can't make up his mind. I hate Bush's guts though so I've been in leftsville for a while. Maybe it'll stick and at least I'll have positions other than "well, why don't we see how it works?" Sometimes being open and rational just doesn't satisfy the ol' urge to get whipped into a lather against whatever stupidity your news outlet of choice is currently ascribing to a pol of dissimilar political leanings.


Oh, and about communists supporting Kerry over Bush- I'm sure that one of those neo-nazi milita types would support Bush over Kerry, but that doesn't mean they're necessarily of the same mind.

No way, half the "righties" are too religious to believe that, and the other half wouldn't shoot anyone except in self-defence. You're thinking of crazy people, they shoot anyone who doesn't agree.

Neo-nazis aren't a threat to the American way of life, whole countries of communists, threatening to nuke us if we don't give them free stuff, are. Anyway, no self-respecting Nazi would like Bush. You see, he's a Christian, the worshiper of a Jew...

Hitler's secretary, Martin Bormann "National Socialism [Nazism] and Christianity are irreconcilable"

Hermann Rauschning"One is either a Christian or a German. You can't be both."

Hitler told Hermann Rauschnig that he intended "to stamp out Christianity root and branch."

Hitler "It is through the peasantry that we shall really be able to destroy Christianity because there is in them a true religion rooted in nature and blood."

Hitler"Antiquity was better than modern times, because it didn't know Christianity and syphilis."

hitler was no fan of christianity, he authorized killing priest and nuns, and planned on killing the pope.

he did however use christianity when he needed to.

I know that hitler was definetly not a fan of Christianity, but I've never heard that he killed priests and nons or that he intended to kill the pope and I doubt it.
Especially the last one because the pope at this time didn't take action against e.g. the killing of Jews, as you could expect from a pope.

I'm a member of the NZ Labour Party so that would make me similar to a Democrat.

One notable exception is we believe in free trade. Most other countries prefer to subsidise their farmers/ steel workers and set quotas so we can't sell as much as a foreign consumer wants to buy or they add tariffs to our exports so if the foreign consumer still wants to buy our product they have to pay an added tax to their own government (or in practice we have to lower our prices and therefore we get less money).

We used to be the same as the EU/Japan/US and others but we almost ran out of money in the 1980's, lol, so we had to go the free trade route.

We also signed up to Kyoto.

Well, the Democrats are some-what free trade. At least the centerist ones who come from the Democratic Leadership Council( http://www.ndol.org/ndol_ci.cfm?kaid=86&subid=194&contentid=3775 ) . Bill Clinton played around before getting elected to get union support, then eventually signed NAFTA. But yeah, support subsidies isn't going to go away anytime soon. Also, read about NZ's 1980s period before - ouch.
