Bush Wins Debate

by Eric Matteson Monday, Oct. 11, 2004 at 1:02 AM

George Bush Wins October 8th debate

On October 8th, 2004 the one important debate question was asked
by Daniel ....
DANIEL is asking President Bush ...
Mr. President, scince we continue to police the world,
how do you intend to maintain our military presence without
reinstituting a draft ????
Then Bush said ..
Yeah, great question. Thanks.
I hear theres rumors on the Internets
that were going to have a draft. Were not
going to have a draft, period. The
All Volunteer Army works. It works particularly
when we pay our troops well, it works when we make sure
theyve got housing, like we have done in the last
military budgets. An All volunteer army is best suited
to fight the new wars of the 21st century, which is to be
specialized and to find these people as they hide arround
the world. We dont need mass armies anymore ...
Forget all this talk about a draft.
Were not going to have a draft so long
as Im the president.
With this one answer, President George Bush won the debate on
October 8th 2004 and is officially eligible for victory in the
November 2,2004 election. Please remember to vote.
He mentioned Internets.
On one of the Internets there is an article in which
There is an example of a young boy
who could not claim an individual conscientious objector exemption
from the draft because that would cause the drafting and hurting
and killing of another American boy to replace him
in total violation of conscientious objector ethics

John Kerry is currently in third place behind both President
George Bush and Libertarian candidate Michael Badnarik.
Michael Badnarik also opposes the U.S. military draft.
If John Kerry wants to continue to run for president he needs to
prove that he is against resuming the military draft by using
his current postion as U.S. senator to introduce a bill into the
U.S. senate to shut down the U.S. selective service website and
terminate all selective service registration activities and
completely abolish the entire selective service system. Only then
can we be sure that Senator John Kerry is not already planning
on reinstating the U.S. military draft.
After getting rid of selective service registration Senator John
Kerry can help the economy by requiring government agencies
such as NASA and the military and their subcontractors to do all
of their computer programming work inside the United States
instead of outsourcing skilled computer programming jobs.
It is unfair for students to spend time and effort in college
and then find out after graduating that their skilled
computer programming job has been outsourced. During the debate
John Kerry admitted that he had no plan to reduce outsourcing.
The one candidate who advocates advanced math classes and
has expressed support for higher education in speeches
is George Bush.

Tie with Michael Badnarik

by Eric Matteson Thursday, Oct. 14, 2004 at 4:13 PM

There is currently a tie between George Bush
and Michael Badnarik.
Michael Badnarik is the first candidate to
express opposition to the U.S. military draft
on his website. His opposition to the
military draft is after his opposition to the war
in Iraq Article at.
Michael Badnarik is the only candidate who
will promply end the war in Iraq.
John Kerry wants to increase the number
of troops on the ground possibly to the
extent of Lyndon Johnson and John Kerry might
bring back the military draft.
Both Michael Badnarik and George Bush have
expressed opposition to the draft and would
not be likely to use it at all.
Michael Badnarik and George Bush are tied
for first place and John Kerry is in third
place at the beginning of October 13th 2004.
A good tie breaker would be to pressure
congress to abolish selective service registration.
Bush and Badnarik will definitely not use a draft
and even John Kerry has not stated support
for a draft.
Scince there is no draft (especially if Bush
or Badnarik wins) why do we need a registration
for it??
I hope that at least one of the candidates will
push congress into abolishing selective service
registration so that the tie might be broken so it
is possible to vote for just one presidential

Badnarik reaches First Place

by Eric Matteson Tuesday, Oct. 26, 2004 at 2:41 PM

Michael Badnarik achieved first place status
on Sunday October 24,2004 by pledging to
veto funding for the selective service system
in his new article on his website upgrade.
Michael Badnarik is running an internet
campaign for president on a very powerful
website. All voters who have internet access
can read about Michael Badnarik and see that
he is the most qualified candidate out
of the top 3.
George Bush has strong second place based on
his October 8th pledge to not reinstate the
military draft while still president.
John Kerry is in distant 3rd place. He shares the
same party as LBJ.
If either Bush or Kerry wants another attempt at
first place they must convince congress to
vote to abolish selective service registration
before the end of October. Michael Badnarik has
raised the standard for victory in November.
Even a registration for a military draft will not
be tolerated.
