Anybody but BUSH!

Yesterday in New York thousands of protestors marched down seventh avenue. And, of course, C-SPAN is covering it like a big news event.

I tookrepparttar time to watch some ofrepparttar 125967 coverage. I expected to find protestors marching for one cause and one cause only to get George W Bush out ofrepparttar 125968 White House.

What did I find instead? What I found was a mixture of people protesting topics from aroundrepparttar 125969 globe.

According torepparttar 125970 “United for Peace website” (organization responsible for August 29, 2004 protests in New York City) their organization will “hold an impassioned, peaceful, and legal march past Madison Square Garden,repparttar 125971 site ofrepparttar 125972 Republican Convention. Whenrepparttar 125973 Republicans descend on New York City with their agenda of war, greed, hate and lies, they will be met by a massive, diverse, peaceful outpouring of dissent, as huge numbers of us join together in a spirit of nonviolence for a legal, permitted march on August 29 to say NO to their destructive and divisive policies.”

What I want to do in this week’s column is examine this organizations claim that President Bush’s policies are based on War, Greed, hate and lies.

Let’s begin withrepparttar 125974 claim that President Bush’s policies are solely based on “war.” Remember President Bush went to war with Afghanistan after Islamic terrorists attacked our country on September 11, 2001.

At which time he said, “The global war on terror will be unlike any other war in our country’s history.” Some fronts ofrepparttar 125975 global war on terror will be visible torepparttar 125976 public and some won’t be.

In response torepparttar 125977 Iraq war President Bush challengedrepparttar 125978 global community throughrepparttar 125979 United Nations to make Saddam Hussein disarm. The United Nations responded with resolution number 1441.

Resolution 1441 clearly stated Saddam must disarm or face serious consequences. George Bush gave Saddam six months to cooperate. Saddam chose not to. Therefore, after twelve years and dozens of resolutions Saddam facedrepparttar 125980 consequences.

This coming election is far more important torepparttar way our country is run than any other overrepparttar 125966 past decade. The focus ofrepparttar 125967 media has mainly been onrepparttar 125968 most important ofrepparttar 125969 races,repparttar 125970 Presidential; however house and senate members are being voted on as well.

This election may either make or breakrepparttar 125971 Democrats. They may loserepparttar 125972 Senate as well as lose more seats inrepparttar 125973 house or gain seats inrepparttar 125974 Senate and Reps. Ifrepparttar 125975 latter isrepparttar 125976 case, many great things will happen forrepparttar 125977 party. The course ofrepparttar 125978 country could very well change andrepparttar 125979 economy be put back on track. Inrepparttar 125980 other case, which seems to be more likely sincerepparttar 125981 last redistricting was under Republican control,repparttar 125982 Democrats will not be able to get anything accomplished. Their bills will be filibustered and their say in both houses will be diminished if at all even present.

Kansas shows a bright spot in allrepparttar 125983 madness surroundingrepparttar 125984 party. Inrepparttar 125985 Second District Rep. Jim Ryun’s seat is in trouble. A lady byrepparttar 125986 name of Nancy Boyda is putting a fight forrepparttar 125987 position. She broke several records for funds by a Democrat inrepparttar 125988 second district. Her views are that of a Moderate Democrat however she is viewed as having great values and will respect and listen torepparttar 125989 voters ofrepparttar 125990 state.
