164. Bush II=America's downfall?
Hello everyone,

I've lurked here for the last few weeks mainly to glean what specks of news and inside information on the Kerry campaign that I could. I'm one of those mushy, wishy washy, centrist "swing voter" types who is conservative on economic issues and liberal on social issues. My ideal government is a divided one with checks and balances where both parties have to reach a consensus in order to get anything done. I'm not a hardcore Democrat, so I probably don't belong here under normal circumstances, but I want to lend my support to the investigation of possible fraud in the 2004 election.

I'm ashamed to say that I voted for George W. Bush in 2000. However, I have become increasingly disenchanted and angry with his administration over the last couple of years, ever since the staged and bogus "diplomatic" runup to the Iraq war. I voted for John Kerry last week, even though I had reservations about some of his spending programs. That doesn't matter a lick, because I now recognize that the Bush administration is, for all intents and purposes, criminal and I fully understand the danger to our system of government posed by returning Bush to power with control of both houses of Congress and looming Supreme Court vacancies.

This is something that cuts way beyond the usual ideological issues of conservative versus liberal. I just want you to know that I appreciate what you are doing and will help where I can. I've all ready donated to and to the Nader recount.
