As a political independent, I don’t usually like to take a side for or against one candidate or another. I usually can find something to harp about on both the Democrat and Republican sides of the aisle. Yet political independence is not equivalent to political ambivalence.
In this Presidential Election, it is abundantly clear that a certain Republican, George W. Bush, is in need of replacement. Despite his personal charisma and his steadfastness in the face of dire circumstances, he has made too many errors in judgment. His steadfastness has proven to be stubborness. His charisma has proven to be chutzpah.
John Kerry is a man more able to gather together all of America’s strengths and focus them on the multitude of problems we have before us. He is as shrewd a politician as any and certainly has weak points. However, the difference between the two men is vast.
Bush is a man of faith and a man of ideology. Yet he is a man of action and a man who believes in strong leadership without reflection.
Kerry is a man of technical nuance and intelligence. He is a man of careful attention and believes in well-crafted leadership.
I believe that intelligence should be more important than bravado. As a result, this blog endorses John Kerry for President.
