The Debates

Tuesday, October 5th, 2004

    After the debates the question that <?xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns = “urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:smarttags” />America must answer pertains to who has a better grasp of the issues.  Poverty seems unchecked, terrorism rages on, and the world is at risk.  Some people think that world would be the same no matter who is in the White House. 
    Such fatalistic arguments hold little merit with history.  When the country was locked into the Great Depression President Hoover wanted to stay the course of cutting the taxes of the rich.  That economic approach has been proven not to work; in fact it brought on the Great Depression.  FDR had a different philosophy; He raised the taxes of the rich and put America back to work.  It was his New Deal which saved this country from communism and put us on the road to prosperity.
   The people in the White House and Congress can make a real difference.  In the next poll we ask who understands the issues best and will make the country a better place to live.

   Many people say that Cheney is the one running the White House, not Mr. Bush. So, we ask;

   This White House is still lying to the American People, there was no connection between 9/11 and Iraq. Just listen to this clip;
     Dick Cheney had said that if the Kerry/Edward team wins there would be another terrorist attack. There are two polls we are running;

   The results of the next will start showing up after the debate.

   In our poll we asked you to rate Bush an Kerry, in a scale of 1 to 10, Mr. Bush was given between a 4 and 5, where Mr. Kerry was given a score between 8 and 9. We also asked “Who won debate one?” 69% said Kerry and 30% said Bush. You can see these results at the closed poll page. In the CNN poll “53 percent of Thursday's debate watchers interviewed said Kerry did the better job, compared with 37 percent who favored Bush.” Zogby poll revealed this; “A USA Today/CNN/Gallup poll of likely voters taken over the weekend found Bush's eight-point lead over Kerry in a Sept. 26 poll had evaporated and both candidates would get 49 percent of the vote if the election were held today. The margin of error was plus or minus 4 percentage points.”    The following are audio clips from the first debate, the point should be noted that there is an erroneous attempt to equate Iraq with 9/11.
