Dear Zack,

Let me add my name to the list of those who proclaim you to be a Great American! Thank God for people like you who keep the spirit of free speech and political dialogue alive. And a small thanks to the mighty Washington Post for attracting more attention to your site today. W's totalitarian reaction to your site is very revealing. These people are not used to having to tolerate dissent. They've had the big media under control for a long time. American citizens who still care for democracy had better use the Internet for all it is worth this election year because if GW is elected, it may be our last chance. Have you seen, by any chance, the Unauthorized Biography of George Bush? It comes up when you do a search on Yahoo under the name George Bush. [] It's about the old man, not Junior, but when you read about the power structure behind these guys, it becomes clear that the distinction between senior and junior is meaningless.

I just want to express my support and respect for you and what you are doing. You are sort of a Tom Paine of the Internet era. Few in the establishment media have the guts to take on a machine as powerful and vindictive as the Bushes. I wish you all the best.

Subject: GWBush's new tax plan
Date: 12/1/99 9:47:13 AM

Check out G's proposed new tax plan. Those making $12,000 to $43,000 would get no tax cut at all, while those making $104,00 to $158,550 would get a six-percent tax cut. Sounds fair to me.


Subject: Free speech petition
Date: 12/1/99 2:08:49 PM

I think it's about time government officials, and potential govenrnment officials realised that they work for the taxpayer, there is a similar problem here in Britain whereby once elected, these people become your masters and dictate how to live your life, meanwhile living their lives as they choose. An extention of this is to curtail people's freedom in order to protect their abuse of power.

Subject: Your proposed ads
Date: 12/1/99 6:07:32 PM

Hey- Is this serious? I don't like Bush at all and I agree that he is a hypocrite, a liar and an elitist, but do the kind of ads you propose to run really help? Does this improve the political climate? How much of the money that is collected do you get? Why don't you all grow up?

Date: 12/1/99 7:22:45 PM

I hear those dicks are trying to take you to court or something. Don't give in! Keep on taking the piss out of that right wing mongoloid arsewit. I'm too tired to write much, but keep it going. And if you need a list of names in support, let me know, I will happily give you mine. As a journalist, I think we need more people who will risk unpopularity with well funded, litigious (unconstitutional? I think so) politicians. So what if you were irreverent. Good. Bush has told too many lies and skirted too many issues. Besides, he's an idiot. AND his father was a director of the CIA. I don't think you need him. Personally, I'm English and live in England so it probably won't effect me, but I do have a lot of American friends and they need another Bush like I need to be in a train accident. Plus I like the idea of dumping on anyone who a) lies so much b) thinks they should be trusted with high office. FUCK HIM! CONTINUE IN YOUR WORK

Sincere regards

Subject: What a treat!

Zack......Love the web site. Freedom of speech means everything. The replies are interesting. We have the people mentioning God in the classroom. I thought that issue was silenced by separation of church and state. The right wing is boasting that there will be replacement of all who voted for Roe Vs. Wade. If they have their way, people will be burned at the stake for speaking their minds. Book burning will be popular. Slavery will be back in place with the low wages of the developing countries that are being taken advantage of with the World Trade Organization. There are a whole host of concerns that many of us have out here in cyberspace. I do not have much faith in anyone who is a typical politician. We need a third party that has concerns for America and its people. What we do not need is corporate America making decisions about our future. I would vote for someone who would rid Americans of the IRS and have taxation of purchases. People on low income really cannot afford those high ticket items so they would not be taxed as much as the rich. Campaign reform is important. Big money rules and does not represent most Americans. Thank you Zack for the brilliant idea of this web site. Elizabeth

Hang in there! The more George W. Bush and his entourage attack your website, the more the people realize the true nature of Bush and his campaign. Hey, it might be a good idea to encourage all of your visitors and everyone on your list to visit and show their support for you and their disgust with George W. I did, and I'd like to share with you the comment I sent:

"I am a freshman at the University of Rhode Island and a new voter. First off, I would like to express my support for and the ideals that this website represents. Satirists have always existed and will always exist on every form of media, and you are mistaken if you believe that you can silence him merely because his opinion is contrary to your "best interest". Also, I must point out that your highbrow and aloof approach to politicking has soured many younger voters, as has your controversial comment, "There ought to be limits to freedom". Now, I do realize that my opinion does not matter in the least bit to you, since the only opinion that you care about is the opinion of the wealthy businesses and corporations that finance your campaign. I just wanted to make you aware that even if you are elected President, you will never represent the opinions of the people that you are supposed to be representing and the ideals on which this great country was founded. God Bless America!"

Have someone on your site been interviewed nationally? I'd like to gear about it. I thought about a strategy in order to get the best of the Bush Campaign ... (1)offer to sell the site to the campaign (2)Reregister your site under GWBUSHLEAGUE under another domain either by using com and registering it outside the U.S.A. , or by using a domain from Europe. (3)The idea of using Bush money to finance an anti Bush Web Site has a nice ring to it!

Just a fellow U.S. citizen who wanted to give you credit for a very well done web site. Much of what you have included is quite hilarious. Anyhow, I assume that you watched the Republican presidential debate this Thursday evening. It was full of quotes from George W. that I think you might want to include. The following is one that I believe deserves attention: "I want to create peace by strengthening our military." G.W. Bush 12/3/99 Bush himself smirked after this stupid comment. Hope its of some use! Watch the debate to make sure it is exactly accurate, but I'm pretty sure it is. Good luck on your efforts!

Subject: Welcome back, Zack

Thank you so much for clearing the backlog in letters! I realize you're swamped, but I look forward to the diverse views in the letters. The ideas, the links, the diverse opinions are what makes this site terrific. With press and talking heads marching in lockstep with the Bush Bandwagon, we need independent thinkers and satirists to keep us honest.

I flinch at the Tim Russert type "softball" interviews. The spins upon spins upon spins leave me wondering who these people think they are?

I respect the intelligence of the people in this country, and I trust that given enough information, the people will make the right choice.

George W. Bush is a spoiled rich boy, who trades on his poppy's name when it is convenient, and claims "youthful indiscretion" when it is not convenient. It is no accident that poppy's name and record keep getting blurred with the baby bush's. No accident that poppy's face and baby's face keep getting juxtaposed in party propaganda. No accident that poppy's hand picked support staff are currently supporting the baby.

Where's the man? Where's the young man who grew up, took his lumps, studied and earned degrees, made investments and took the consequences for his own judgment?

He doesn't exist. Nowhere in George W.s history is there evidence that he grew up and became a man, dependent on his own word, his own intelligence, and his own decisions.

Now they want to foist this ill-formed, half-man on this country, reassuring us that he will be supported by poppy, poppy's cabinet, and a misbegotten gaggle of has-been Republican misfits. Nevermind that he can't read, has no curiosity, and has never participated in the rough and tumble politics on the national scene? Nevermind that he excuses his hair-triggered temper, pouting, and petulance when crossed, on genes from his mommy.

Forget it. If the Republicans can't field a better candidate than this, give me Dan Quayle! At least he tried to read, learn, become a man, and isn't still trying to hide behind mommy's skirts with the help of poppy's geriatric handlers!


Subject: RE : Advertisement IDEAS!!!
Date: 12/3/99 4:07:11 PM

The BIG play Dubya's team is using is about how George CUT taxes in Texas giving us Texans the largest tax break in our history. Yah, sure. Here's the truth... The tobacco settlement which George FOUGHT about with Democratic state ATTORNEY GEN Dan Morales before Dan quit was about suing the lawyers who fought the case for the state of Texas....saying that they should not be allowed to financially benefit from that huge settlement. That story got sort of BURIED here so I dont know how large their cut of the pay off was but it was released and Bush got the State Legislature to go along with the HYPE that he would be able to claim the "largest tax cut in Texas' history" by transferring that $2.5 billion tobacco money to reduce Property Owner's tax by .06 cents per $100.00 of value. In other words, he gets to claim somebody else's work which he argued about initially and then applies the smallest amount possible to the people who own property. Who benefits? Well the millionaires who own the largest homes of course. The rest of the tax break came in the form of an AMNESTY on back to school clothes and other sundries for 3 DAYs in August this year. a whopping 8% off school crap etc so that was his gift to the poor and middle class. HOW ABOUT EXPLOITING THAT LIE???????!!!!! Sincerely yours Mimi, Dallas Texas

Subject: a question
Date: 12/3/99 7:13:10 PM

I love the ad-funding plan, and plan to pledge something (not a lot, as I'm on something of a tight budget). Quick question, though. Aren't ads #1 and #3 potentially libelous? Though we all know he did coke, he's never admitted it, and there's also no hard evidence (that I'm aware of) that somebody pulled strings to get him into the National Guard, although again the circumstantial evidence is pretty convincing.

I'm not a lawyer, and I could certainly be wrong, but I thought I'd mention my concern. Also, a better catch-phrase for the coke ad would be the one you use on your site banner - "Drug Free since 1974." That's a great line, and it should be the centerpiece of the spot.

Hey, you are doing a good job! If i were you, I'd slap a $100 million civil liberties suit on Shrub!

I also get a kick out of the "nays" section you have here. I really don't think they get it. They didn't have proof for 8 years of endless hatemongering and witchhunting, and their only policy still is "anything goes", one listen to the radio or one perusal of their websites proves this.

I want to see every Rebublican exposed to be the hypocrite they really are! I don't care where we dig up the info on them, or whom we dig it up on! We should also use THEIR standards of authenticity of the information stated, constructivism, if they should not be required to prove a thing they say, neither should we.

It's really amazing how they are rabid when they do it themselves, but moan and groan with cries of "foul" when their own games are turned around on themselves.

All I have to say to them is: If you can't eat it, you shouldn't have dished it [for eight years and still running]! Turn-about is fair play. It's YOUR rules that we play by now, so don't be a bunch of hypocrites! We've been turning our cheek for far too long!


Subject: G. W. Bush's brother???
Date: 12/4/99 1:01:47 AM

Here is a little question for the quiet as its kept minority. Does the wonderfully hypocratic gov. of the great state of Texas, after all they elected him, have a brother??? I for one would really like to know for you see I am not a real adved follower of any one political family or its legacies, especially since the rise of the Kennedy clan. After all who could top that circus tent? Back to our golden boy though, if he does have a brother then, he (the brother) must be the black sheep I am thinking of, and somewhat paints G. W. in a lighter shade of black. If G. W. however does not have a brother hanging in a closet somewhere then, he (G. W.) must be the dear sweet lad whom dear ole dad, (G. president B.) was talking about when, he (G. president B.) said, "I will not let my position as president interfere with due process of the law to protect him", in the S & L scandal. Then again I could be really mistaken and thinking of a different George Bush's (president) son.

When Brit Hume asked Bush, ``What do you read?" He replied, ``What do I read?" not because he didn't hear the question, but to buy time. When my wife asks, ``Where have you been?" and I respond ``Where have I been?" you can bet the next thing out of my mouth is a lie. More...

I'm an independent voter that could go any way. Dude drugs did not stick with Clinton. I believe Clinton lied about drugs like maybe George W. is being evasive. It really sounds like your scared George W is going to win. Dude There is more Democrats in the country and with Pat Buchanan likely to be the reform candidate the right wing vote will be broke up. How about sticking with the issues. Clinton did a good job while in the white house. We know he lied about the one time with Jennifer Flowers and under oath about Monica. I guess it is all about sex so I believe Clinton took coke and marijuana and lied because no one can prove it. Big deal if George W. took a little coke. The founding fathers took drugs dude it is no big deal.

I keep waiting for everybody to realize how much of an issue-less power-hungry phony George Bush Jr. is, and I am glad to know that there are those out there that are busy getting the message out.

It amazes me that so many people cannot see the simple fact that had Dubya not been his father's son, he would have never made it past the county council in Texas. Everywhere he has gotten himself policitically has been from using his father's name and becoming the minion of big business. He is one of the biggest sell-out policitcians that I know about.

As Governor of Texas, Dubya was eager to cut taxes for oil companies but didn't think that there was enough money to get health care for children living in poverty. Houston has become the city with the most polluted air in the country, and despite what he may say, the only envivronmental concerns Dubya has are how the oil can be gotten out of it the quickest. Hopefully, through more examples of his stupidity (Grecians, not knowing the Prime Minister of India) people will realize how bad of a national leader George Bush Jr. would be.

The website is great, and made better by Dubya whining about it.

P.S. I thought the person who wrote "you attack [George W. Bush] personally instead of concentrating on issues" was quite funny. After all, when he actually tells us what he stands for, we will make fun of that too.

Bush is protesting this site simply because he fears the power of the internet. Any individual now has the power to express his/her opinions and have those opinions broadcast throughout the world. For far too long, the press and government and interest groups have had control. So, whether you support Bush or not, the bigger picture is our freedom to express our opinions. Any additional information will only help us when we vote. A better-informed voter can only be a postive thing for this country, and for far too long, the information that we have been getting about all candidates has been controlled by a select few. It's about time that the people can participate.

Good site... funny, yet with a message... I completely agree the drug laws are bogus, but are so mired in politicians dogma they feel they can't turn back, no matter what they really think.... they believe if they come out in favor of decriminalization they couldn't be elected (they're probably right in some areas), so have to "send the right message", for "the children" of course...... If only they would think of prohibition when they think of drugs, and realize the tremendous reduction in interdiction related crime when prohibition ended... they have to understand that free adults are going to do pretty much as they damn well please, and in the U.S. should be allowed to do so unless their actions have a direct, detrimental affect on others..... I'm not really sure what to do with some of the more addictive and seriously mind-altering drugs available, although incarceration is clearly seriously counterproductive, but to lump marijuana and other cannabis based drugs into the same pile as these more unhealthy drugs is just plain stupid.... so the first step is to decriminalize marijuana for personal use, then deal with the harder drugs in a more compassionate manner than we're doing now...... now back more on topic, one thing I truly hate is hypocrisy, and for GW to call for such punitive punishments for drug use in Texas, given his background, makes him just another piece of shit hypocritical politician... for that alone I hope he loses the election...

Enjoyed looking over your site!!! Your ideas about commercials etc. are great but what you really need is evidence!! If I know party-types like I think I do (and I do) they love to get trashed and take stupid pictures of each other. Surely there is someone out there that has some pictures of Georgie-porgie with a spoon in his nose, or a mirror full of coke on the table, or smoking a joint or a bong or some other such thing that would just love to pocket the $4000+ that you have pledged. With this "evidence" you would not have to worry about the high price of trying to produce and place commercials on TV...... the media would do it for you for free and it would reach a whole lot more voters!!!

What you might want to do is post a "reward" for such evidence. Surely not all of the people he partied with (and probably shit on) support him and his B.S. This might motivate them to have a look at some of their old photos...... I know that there is some of me floating around out there (of course before I turned 40 and became a good little hypocritical Christian .... ha, ha, ha, chuckle, chuckle)

It's not that I have anything against his or anyone else's "youthful indiscretions", but I really hate a hypocrite.

I notice a lot of the "Nay" letters assume that everyone supporting this website is a...(gasp!)...liberal. Not true. I would consider voting Republican, IF the GOP would field a candidate worthy of my vote. The Democrats are just as guilty in this regard. If the candidates for President in the General Election are Bush & Gore, I'll be voting for a write-in candidate(my wife). If the candidates for President in the General Election are McCain & Bradley, well, I guess I'll have a tough choice to make. Whether Bush did drugs or not makes no difference to me. A lot of us did...some got caught, some didn't. I preach abstinence to my Daughter. Does that make me a hypocrite? Maybe, maybe not. However, the way Bush has gone about his business in dealing with the drug issue, his military background, his schoolwork, and his many other "youthful indiscretions", tells me this man is either a shifty liar, or just plain dumb...and that does make a difference to me. KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK! Gary P.S. And another thing is the whisper campaign being run by Bush's camp regarding John McCain's mental fitness. That's what I call "Bush League"!

How apt of Mr. Bush to call you a "garbage man" since you are literally taking out the trash, displaying it for all of us to see. G.W. personifies everything wrong with American politics - money buys elections, a powerful dad will get you everywhere, the priviledged don't need to study or work hard to rise, Hypocrisy and stupidity are actually rewarded in our nation. G.W. was so terrible in those recent debates, I don't know how anyone could vote for him. Did you know Texas would be the 11th largest nation? He only repeated that one 20 times, making ludicrous answers to questions not even remotely about Texas. Now, he would like to throw out the 1st ammendment because of a parody site, what a pathetic, spoiled brat. I think Washington, Jefferson, Adams and Franklin must roll over in their graves when they see what American politics has been reduced to. If McCain does not beat this scumbag, I fear for all of us. Probably a pointless war in some 3rd world nation to divert attention from real problems. I hope he contracts some sort of skin disease and has to drop out. The Bush family is every bit as destructive to our body politic as was (is) the Kennedy clan. Campaign finance reform is all that can possibly save us from G.W. and clones from running our republic hereon in.

I was not able to read all of your web page but just incase no one said anything, Bush is also against freedom of religion (that is if the religion is not the Christian Religion), Bush came out and said that Wicca (a Pagan Religion) was not a real religion and should not be allowed on Millitary Bases (It has been oked by the U.S. Gov as a Religion). This is another good reason that Bush should be voted down and hope he never gets in office (well maybe he can run for dog catcher).

Subject: Suggestion for GWBush TV Ad
Date: 12/9/99 8:11:32 AM

I thought about this when GWBush was first running for governor here in Texas. The ad should run in the general election campaign, a few weeks before the November election. It should show GWBush and review any number of his quotes which show him pandering to the religious right. Near the end of the ad, the image of GWBush should morph into the image of Pat Robertson. The ad should help demolish his attempts to be thought of as a moderate, and point out how scary he REALLY is. I would be glad to contribute to such an ad.

Subject: A Pardon is a Pardon
Date: 12/11/99 7:37:52 AM

I don't know if you've taken the time to read Lawrence Walsh's book "Firewall," but it details his investigation into the Iran-Contra scandal. In fact, if then President Bush hadn't granted a pardon to Casper Weinberger on his way out the White House door, then Bush's false statements to the Independent Counsel would have become public record. They are now, but you have to willing to read to be familiar with them.

Walsh is a lifelong Republican, who was appointed Deputy Arttorney General by President Eisenhower and was later appointed to the federal bench by "Ike." Walsh makes clear that he had no intetion of indicting Bush, providing he purged himself at Weinberger's trial and told the truth. Please see page 504 et. seq.) Compare that to Kenneth Starr and the hypocritical Republican Congress.

It is highly doubtful that either of Bush's sons would ever have been elected Governor had the Weinberger trial been permitted to take place. As it is, they sit as Governors of Texas and Florida, respectively. Both are chips off the old block, because neither can conjugate a verb - shades of the old man. They also have difficulty with the truth. Must be a family trait. Then, of course, there's Neil - the S & L mogul who cheated the U.s Government in a Small Business loan to the tune of $2.5 million. We should consider ourselves lucky because Silverado (S & L) cost the taxpayers over 1 billion. To date, Neil hasn't been elected as Governor of any State.

George W has been quoted as saying he is running for President because he wants to restore honor and dignity to the White House. His knowledge of history must be on parr with his knowledge of foreign affairs.

I think it is sad the a murder in Texas does not receive the same vigorous prosecution that a drug crime does. I think they should legalize drug use and get these people out of jail and put the real criminals behind bars.

I am writing as a resident of the Texas G. W. Bush is so proud of leading. As your site has already pointed out, Texas is very low in funding for children's programs, help for poor people, funding for programs for disabled, handicaped, and people with mental illness. That is just the tip of the iceberg of the shortcomings of our state government. What you may not understand, is that is the way most residents of Texas like it. As long as Texans have guns, football, beer and pick-up trucks, most do not give a rat's hindquarters what happens to the less fortunate. You also make a big deal about G. W.'s c-average school grades. You should understand that Texans have no interest in electing anyone smarter than the average Texan. We did that with our previous governor, and in spite of the outstanding job she did, we dumped her for someone more mediocre at the first opportunity. Of course, the Republican party in this state is always ready to offer us a candidate with questinable qualifications, Tom DeLay, Phil Graham, Kay Bailey Hutchinson being examples. The Democrats on the other hand, continue to offer thoughtful and reasonable canditates for the voter's consideration. Is it any wonder that they cannot get elected? This state is not going to elect anyone who favors even the most reasonable limits on gun ownership. Nor are we going to elect anyone who favors the most reasonable or responsible increase in taxes tro pay for badly needed social programs. As long as guns are left abundant and easy to obtain, taxes are kept to a bare minimum, and we continue to lead the country in executions, most voters see little reason to be unhappy. Big petrochemical business is destroying our enviroment, and big corporations own our government, but it is not important to most citizens. We can still get our beer, guns and pick-up trucks. We can still pretend we live in the past, and ignore the problems of the present. We are very happy with G. W., thank you very much. He is the governor we want, and wat's more, he is the governor we deserve.

Several of the letters even defended the shrub's efforts to shut down your web site!

The pro-site letters are calm and reasonable - the "nays" are angry, bitter, hostile, and venomous. Reading the letters as a group paints a dramatically different picture of the people that wrote them. I'm old enough to remember when Republicans were nice, normal people, if a bit on the conservative side, and ultra-leftists were the only "haters" and bomb throwers in America. What happened?

Move the host to a foriegn country like Cananda...They can't touch you if the host for your web page is outside the country....You will still be but hosted outside the arm of the FEC. If you want me to help or you need info on how to do this just respond to my e-mail with your questions.

I really believe in being able to do what you are doing, and the fact that you have caused so much trouble means you are doing something right.

Because his father was a congressman, George W was moved to the head of a very, very long waiting list to get into the national guard. Then, he was given the additional privilege of entering a pilot training program despite having one of the lowest intelligence scores on the entrance exam. So and so, then speaker of the house in Texas, admits that he made phone calls on behalf of young Bush to get him into the guard.

Zack right on man...Im scared of George being president. His dad scared me and his dad's dad (Ronald Reagan) scared me. The scariest thing of all to me is that I have more respect for his dad and Ronnie than I do for George because George Jr is about to walk into a firestorm he doesnt fully understand. He is a last ditch effort of the right to "fight fire with fire" or "an eye for an eye" on behalf of the christian right and republicans to somehow recover from their failures to dethrone Clinton via Ken Starr. Lets elect a halfway good-looking, self-absorbed, draft-dodging, drug-user to the white house. The only difference between Clinton and George Jr. is that Clinton has a brain and knows how to use it. Clinton has a heart and knows how to use that too. How many people, Zack, in your personal life do you know who can do both equally well? or either well at all?

Unfortunately for us...George has been all but been anointed "President" by the Christian right and the lack of a communicator on the democrats part.

When Bill Clinton was asked by the media about GWs faltering on the radio "Pop-Quiz", Bill said something akin to "its something you pick up after being on the job for awhile" (I said AKIN to). Would a republican ever say that about Bill Clinton? Nope.

What would it take for me to vote for George W?

He has to move to Virginia and cut off his right hand because the bible told him so.

If he ate it that would be entertaining but I wont require it. Thanks and keep fighting the good fight. Bill C.

Subject: hypocrisy sneaks up on you
Date: 12/14/99 1:46:11 AM

Zack, You know I was reading your links to GWs explanation on the draft thing. And it occurred to me. Perhaps erroneously. That you know the whole issue exists because no politician will stand up and be honest. Noone will say "I didnt want to die in that war" (and I and my family were willing to use whatever means to make sure I didnt). Hindsight is 20/20. We all now see that the cause was bogus. The management of the bogus cause was worse than bogus. And alot of people died for nothing. Democracy, communism, emperialism, and humankind were not served in any way. Yet no one (politician) will say on a personal level - "I did not want to lose my life in that war". Thats a hypocrisy in itself. So we are saying...."In retrospect it was a stupid war...I wish I had died in it!"

I guess dying for any cause is NOBLE no matter how stupid the cause. Or because we (supposedly) HAD TO. Im not trying to give nobility to draft dodgers. I just think..hey Bill Clinton dodged and I dont really remember him denying it. I hope George doesnt try to deny the only thing I might have respected him for.

It is refreshing to see people unafraid to voice their opinions...and yes, like butt-cracks we all have one. Some are just a little bigger and hairier than others. Do your research, ask questions, and keep your mind alert and open to what the candidates are saying. If you vote for a man because of his party affiliation you may be voting for the man with the largest financial backing (not necessarily a good thing). But VOTE, we CAN make a difference and change some of the mess we currently have. Politicians have a bad name and beaurocracy is a four letter word (ain't that some S*@t!) because we have let them become isolated from us, due to our lack of involvement and failure to unite. Remind your legislators, judges, local, state, and federal that you are their customer...THEY WORK FOR YOU!

I'm a Republican by ideals, values, and morals (what Republicans "used" to stand for;) but, there is NO WAY that I'm voting for Geo. W. He is nothing more than another Klinton but under the Republican disguise who is going to continue the agenda of the NWO people (Bilderberg/CFR/Trilateral, etc) who want to DESTROY the U.S.

Even though my vote won't mean anything (because Bush, Jr. is the bought & paid for Golden Boy of the NWO people,) I'm going to vote for Buchanan, who I believe is the O N L Y "TRUE" American in the running, who is "AGAINST" these NWO people who want to destroy U.S. sovereignty in their quest for MONEY, GREED, and POWER!!

I am "ASHAMED" at my fellow Americans who S T I L L "DON'T GET IT!!" They listen to CNN, MSNBC, ABC, CBS, and NBC and read the "LIBERAL" newspapers and actually "BELIEVE" all the propoganda/brainwashing from the NWO owned media!!!

World Net Daily is one of my favorite sites that I go to every day; but, I am perplexed that they now have a new site for people to write to their elected officials. I don't waste my time writing to the House or the Senate because some are Communists (belonging to the Progressive Party but they label themselves as Democrats (like Conyers;) or, they have been blackmailed, threatened, or just scared, and they are doing what Klinton wants instead of what they "SHOULD" be doing to S A V E the United States. It became V E R Y clear to me when the Senate did not convict Klinton of Impeachment, let alone TREASON, that our elected officials were N O T working for the American people; instead, they were "UNWILLING" to F I G H T for the United States of America and the American people and were "SELLING US OUT" along with Klinton and his NWO pals!!!!!!!!

Just to let you know -- I am a 50ish grandmother, and I "K N O W" what is going on with the NWO people and people within our own government who want to DESTROY us!

As a recent transplant to the DFW area, I am more than a little annoyed at the free pass given GW's legislation regarding the largest industrial polluters in Texas. They were "grandfathered" to avoid reducing emissions 27 years ago, and George has requested that they voluntarily reduce emissions.

if they haven't done anything in 27 years, they won't without threat of economic penalty. we always hear about the loss of old technology jobs, but there is never any mention of the jobs to be created in the new industries to provide air and water cleaners, alternative energy sources, more efficient engines, etc.. If "Conservatives" are so concerned about maintaining the current status quo, let's leave them the past and seize the future.

i'm glad you asked that question, and i believe the answer depends on your definition of courage. if courage means risking life and limb to further the greater good of your country or fellow man, then yes i believe i displayed great personal courage during my time in the texas air national guard. my skill, dedication and personal sacrifice while serving my country during these trying times is beyond question. i'm proud of the fact that not one north vietnamese mig penetrated texas air space while i was on duty. i know the meaning of duty and sacrifice, flying over thousands of square miles of empty texas desert, staring into the sun for hours, searching for the enemy, ever alert and vigilent. tough duty, tough. i mean it's hard to hold that joystick with your knees, roll a bill and toot some blow all at the same time. as for the source of courage i offer my father as an example. navy pilot, congressman, cia director, ambassador to china, vice president and president of the united states for ONE TERM. (still can't believe that slick no name weasel from that small state kicked his ass. with a 90% approval rating no less.) yes the force i mean courage is strong in my family. for generations courage has flowed freely through the blue bush blood.

Subject: Christ as a Political Philosopher
Date: 12/17/99 5:34:20 PM

When asked to name his favorite political philosopher at the Des Moines debate, Mr, Bush answered, "Christ." From his reply is it correct to assume that Mr. Bush would make political decisions based on the Christ gospel? For example, The Gospel According to St. Matthew 5:39 says, "....whosoever shall smite thee on thy right cheek, turn to him the other cheek also." If the United States were attacked, would Mr. Bush, as commander-in-chief, follow Christ's gospel and turn the other cheek rather than defend the country? If Mr. would defend the country, how does he resolve the conflict with Christ's gospel? I would appreciate clarification of this issue.

My sister use to date a guy way back when there was a draft. The guy got into the Air Guard in Houston because his dad was a member. Now this guy was enlisted. But it seems that now people are realizing that G.W. dad was the local congressmen at the time. Also, there were about seven to eight colleges in the area that were producing guys who were loosing their college deferments. Funny how Georgie W. just gets into flight school. I doubt that there was a shortage of guys wanting to get into the Air Guard. Don't forget about the business side of George. His brother, the Governer of Florida was one of the people responsible for the creation of the Resolution Trust Corp. (RTC) in the late 80's early 90's. His poor real estate business helped create it. Also, people don't know that if you get into business with George W. you loose money, but he makes it.

What is your problem with GW Bush? His record in Texas *clearly* shows he will be a superb national leader, and that attacks against him are unfounded! Here is some of his awesome Texas record:

- Since becoming governor, my hometown (Houston) has become the #1 city for air, water, AND ground pollution. GWB obviously cares about and demonstrates consistency on environmental issues (and us Houstonians love our vacations to L.A. when we need some fresh air!). - The homeless and hungry in Houston are more and more numerous. But they don't pay taxes (see below) so why do we care? GWB doesn't care about the unfortunate and hungry in Texas, why should he? They only make up 5% of our population. - Texas and Taxes have the same letters, and are virtually synonomous. And the tax situation here is perfect! The more you own, the less you will be taxed. The system is marvelous, especially if you're wealthy and own a large lot/mansion. In fact, my tiny house in middle-class houston has a land valued *2x* higher than that of his good father, former President Bush (who, incidentally, is one of the select few in Houston that did not get yet another property tax increase in 1999, here is the link to that fact: ). The ultra-wealthy in the River Oaks section of Houston get great property land values, much lower than the middle class home-owners receive. It pays to know GW Bush! - Crime? who cares about crime...we can all simply walk around with guns and shoot each other, claiming "self defense." The gun makers certainly deserve to have good GW Bush in office! - Minorities? What are those? Doesn't matter as long as you're white, anglo, and wealthy.

These are just some of GW's great contributions to our wonderful state of Taxes, er - Texas. We love our pollution and daily new stories about road-rage (er- self defense) shootings. We love the dragging deaths and the tax hell imposed if you're not wealthy. To be sure, if elected GW will make an even better president. Clearly, your website is out of line saying he is a bad man without a substantive track record!

If you wait until the general elections to run the ads, then it boils down to tencit support for Gore, who has been caught taking campaign contributions from the Communist Chinese military attach´┐Ż in a Buddhist monastery in Calif. The problems we face as a nation politically are represented by both parties equally. You could help the crisis by reaiming the effort toward the real Trojan Horse- the one party system we have. Of course, you are correct about Bush, however, brains do not make a Patriot, cocaine usage in and of itself does not disqualify anyone from anything (self victim) [Gen. Grant] Like Quayle, who finagled his way out of Vietnam, Clinton, same, Bush is in good company.

I guess that I am questioning your ultimate motivations, and you may have a good answer. I am no Bush supporter. I am a Vietnam Vet (combat medic). I believe that a radical change is imminent, and that the infiltrated elite conspiracy will fail. (interestingly enough, I also am pragmatic enough to realize that apathy prevails to exempt that scenario from jelling at the voting booth) It is entirely up to the "elite" to effectively shoot themselves in the foot. Electing either Gore or Bush will swing the pendulum enough to affect this by activating pragmatic enzymes that only surface for self preservation proclivities.
