Democrats are busy trying to find the best candidate for president. One candidate has demonstrated high regards for many of the most important democratic principles. He stands strong for women's rights, having appointed many women and minorities to top positions. He also advocated liberalizing immigration policies, drug coverage for American seniors, and has helped numerous AIDS patients and their families.
After years of posturing by many Democrats and Republicans, this one candidate has delivered Medicare prescription drug coverage. He has given women in Afghanistan the right to go to school and to be treated by, or possible even become a doctor. Women can now run for office under their new, democratic Afghani constitution. These are vital human rights that Afghani women, or men for that matter, could scarcely dream about just a few short years ago.
This one candidate has also worked hard to restore human rights in Iraq. He's allowed a free press and hundreds of newspapers without censorship. Iraqi teachers now earn from 12 to 25 times their former regime salaries. Thanks to this man, Baghdad's first democratic transfer of power occurred in 35 years. Success in Iraq has already convinced Libya to abandon its nuclear weapons program and is prompting democratic reforms in Saudi Arabia, Jordan, and Iran.
This one great candidate has implemented strong measures to improve education of America's children. Most Americans are against partial-birth abortions and homosexual marriages and are also for tax cuts. A true democrat stands for what most people want. The most democratic of candidates passes the democratically popular position test and signed a partial-birth abortion ban, tax-cuts and is also against homosexual marriages. Perhaps the most surprising thing of all, is that the best Democrat, is a Republican.
For the first time I agree with the Pequot Lakes gentleman. I am going to join him in not voting for Sen. Ted "make-mine-a-double" Kennedy either.
Thanks for the heads up Sir.
