"Later Bush" and other necessary reading

I came across a site called See Ya Later Bush!, and added the following message (though I've edited it slightly now that I've had a chance to re-read it) to its blog. I encourage anyone else who feels like getting a good Bush rant off their chest to do the same--it felt good. :) If you're considering voting for Bush, then you should really read this site, or you may seriously regret it later (as the world enters WW3, with the US as the Bad Guys).

It seems like the Bush supporters Aren't Listening. Bush either lies constantly or is incompetent. Either way, we know he's not qualified for the post of President of the US. The WORLD knows he's not qualified. In foreign policy, he's pissed off the rest of the world, pouring fertilizer on the roots of terrorism, while making nonsensical arguments like, 'They hate our freedom.' Like hell! They hate our arrogance and our killing and exploitation of their peoples! It doesn't make ANY sense to say they hate our freedoms! Hello!

And as to whether or not Kerry will be able to handle Iraq any better, IT DOESN'T MATTER. If he and Bush plan to do the exact same thing with Iraq, Kerry will still have an advantage--the world mistrusts Bush at the moment, and would be more likely to cooperate with ANYONE else. Further, on the home front Bush is trying to establish an oligarchy--that's rulership by an exclusive class, often those with money, and I DON'T mean those with a little bit of money: If your yearly income after taxes isn't in the 10's or 100's of millions, then you WON'T be part of the elite class, as much as you would like to think you will! So what you say? Well, so much for the American Dream: In Bush's America, everyone will stay where they're at. And guess what? Where they're at will keep sliding down, away from Those On Top. Social Security? He's trying to dissolve it. Environment? He's ready to chew it up and spit it out, as long as someone will pay him for it. Global warming? This one needs a rant all its own, but it will suffice to say that it is NOT controversial within the scientific community. It is only controversial within politics and the general populace, and that because companies like Exxon have been spreading lies about the science.

To summarize: Bush is NOT making us safer. Kerry has a chance of doing it, but will be hampered by the mess Bush got us into. Bush is trashing the environment and stacking the economy for his pals; Kerry will help protect the environment and restore a reasonable progressive tax system. How can any thinking person vote for Bush?
