My mother was a Democrat and my father was a Republican. That, and being anAmerican, is why I listen to both sides carefully before deciding my vote.
I have grave concerns about Kerry. I understand that Bush has made some mistakes. Kerry however, spoke before Congress about atrocities the Americans committed and this was broadcast on radio stations internationally. The American prisoners in Vietnam were tortured more as a direct result of his speech.
Kerry knocked Bush for not serving during the war, when Bush was in the National Guard. The National Guard serves a vital purpose and during WWII, there were many National Guard soldiers in the famous Death March.
