What should be shown as his greatest weakness, however, is his great anger and blindness in regards to terrorism. He has given Osama Bin Laden and al-Qaeda exactly what they wanted. By reacting to a terrorist attack with what seems to be a blinding anger and lack of planning he has created the war the terrorists longed for. By invading middle eastern nations, the Bush administration has created conditions that make recruitment for al-Qaeda very easy. As more Arabs are suffering and seeing proof of Osama’s assertions that America is their enemy, the influence of the organization can only grow, and its danger to the world will only become more grave. A change is needed for America to not be thrown into a situation that could cripple generations.
It shouldn’t surprise anyone that I give my support to Kerry. He is the better candidate on nearly every issue. No, he’s not a perfect leader, but he’s the option you have to make America better. Please take the time to vote for John Kerry tomorrow. Your children, your families, your communities, America and all of the world will thank you in time if you do.
I’d like to share with you a few points that may help to convince you of Kerry’s worthiness and links to sources I used should you wish for further reading.
President George W. Bush has compiled the worst environmental record in the history of our nation, earning him the first ever “F” on the League of Conservation Voters’ (LCV) 2003 Presidential Report Card. His administration’s approach to the environment demonstrates a clear bias toward the interests of corporate polluters and special interests.
Bush seems to have no concern for the our environment and the damage his policies will cause. Clearly Kerry has no competition for any environmentalist’s vote.
Kerry’s plan would create incentives for employers to extend coverage to more people, open federal health benefits to individuals and small businesses, and force drug manufacturers to lower their prices.
Bush plans to spend one tenth as much money, while Kerry plans to insure seven times as many people.”

Kerry opposes same-sex marriages but also opposes a constitutional amendment to ban them. Supports recognition of civil unions to extend all federal benefits to same-sex couples. Kerry sponsored the Employment Non-Discrimination Act, which bans job discrimination against homosexuals. Supports including gays and lesbians in the protections of the Federal Hate Crimes Law. Supports repealing the “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy and allowing gays and lesbians to serve openly in the military.

Kerry is clearly the candidate most concerned with human rights. His acknowledgement of the problem orientational discrimination poses is just one of many ways he stands as a humanitarian.
