In a speech in Milwaukee, Kerry repeated the canard that Bush plans on reinstating the Draft.

Bush, speaking in Iowa, clearly rebutted the false charge.

Interestingly, both candidates are campaigning in state carried by Gore in 2000.

Hmm.

Hmm.
He took a lesson from the republicans.
Repeat a lie enough times and people will believe it.

Well, I'm glad you acknowledge the Kerry statement was a lie.

Would you care to post the "lies" being promulgated by "the republicans." including the specifics of the lie, and the place it was uttered?

I posted the substance of an allegation made by Kerry, including the city where he made the allegation.

The Democrat who responded, admitted that Kerry's allegation was a lie, but suggested that 'republicans' had made other lies,

I asked to a concrete example of the 'republican' and the 'lie.' with the locale of the lie being made.

No answer.

Hmm.

So if Bush is elected every person under the age of 26 gets drafted.
If Kerry is elected every person in a wheelchair will get up and walk according to Rev. John Edwards.


Well, er, you must remember that both Kerry and Edwards are shysters, and as such, er, they have a professional 'right' to er, twist the truth (what if other people did it would be called, 'lie.')

Sorry Friar, but,

Kerry is on the record as supporting a wide variety of tax increases,

so,

Kerry's denial (recently) that he won't raise taxes is merely a statement which contradicts his record.

Moreover, as was pointed out in the third debate, Kerry's spending program is far in excess of revenues which would be generated by merely taxing the rich.

To put it in the form of a syllogism.

P1.  Kerry has stated he favors a 'pay as you go' policy where spending won't increase faster than revenue.

P2.  The only group Kerry has publicly singled out for tax increases are the rich (200 K per income or above).

P3.  The tax increase on the rich will be insufficent to fund the programs Kerry has proposed.

Ergo,

a.) Kerry will increase taxes on other people (his record), and/or
b.) Kerry will spend less on his programs than he has promised, and/or
c.) the deficit will increase under Kerry as the increased taxes will be less than the increased spending.

However no matter how you slice it, Kerry would have to violate at least one of the promises he made in this area.

Based on Kerry's record, I believe he will proposed raising a wide variety of taxes (not only on the rich), AND Congress will not let him spend as much as he proposes, AND the deficit will increase.
