Especially for American citizens:

I voted for President Bush, and I still think he is a good man at heart. But I’m afraid that between pride and fear he is leading the country in the wrong direction. He seems to think that just because he was re-elected the people will support any action. And the thing that is supposed to keep him in check – the Congress – isn’t doing its job.

So, in part to make up for my 2004 vote, I am sharing this message in the off-topic section of least 100 message boards (and you folks are lucky #1). Please consider the following:

(1) VOTE in 2006! A lot of people only vote in presidential elections, or don’t vote at all but guess what - 2006 will be about the president. The Congress who is elected in 2006 will be the ones to hold President Bush accountable – or not. And if you don’t vote, then don’t complain about anything the government does. By not voting, you a saying that you like the way things are.

(2) When in doubt, vote for a Democrat. Now, if there is a clear difference in the candidates then off course you should vote for the best one. But a lot of times the candidates aren’t really that different. In those cases, if you are concerned about President Bush, then vote Democrat. It will be the Democrats most likely to hold President Bush accountable – not because they are any better than Republicans, but because they want the power. But what ever their motivations, better to have the checks and balances in place.

Thank you for listening to me. Please feel free to contact me at -snip-

Correct me if I'm wrong, but if my memory is not faulty, the three branches of the American government are the legislative, executive, and judicial. Since the first two seem to be such a mess. Anybody thought of a SUING the US government ?

Careful Evan, they're listening.

...and watching...they know where we all live...

Just a quick reminder - please "play" nice. This thread has the potential to create some interesting and insightful discussion. Everyone's opinion counts no matter what side of the issue you may find yourself. Thanks!

I know you live in Canada, but you must know our judical system is in a bit of a mess as well. We sue everybody over anything. Unlike Canada. I don't think our overburdened court system will provide any relief anytime soon. It seems Americans will have to wait until the 2006 elections or perhaps even the 2008 elections before we see significant change.

Dear Pres. Bush,

Loosen up. Find some adjectives for 'freedom' and 'terrorist'. Take that hand out from under the back of your jacket and be your own puppet!

I can't think of any more...
