Why vote for Bush? Honesty is a Moral Value.

Well I was unsuccessful in staying away from the political fallout from the left. So this is my response - I hope it is my only response. (given that it is in 3 parts)

Honesty is a Moral Value

Kerry lied about many things. Simple things. About owning SUVs (he did in Detroit in front of union auto workers, he didn't in CA in front of environmentalists). He was not telling the truth in at least one instance.

Was he or was he not in Cambodia for Christmas? Did he or did he not throw away his medals (or were they ribbons or did they belong to someone else)?

He voted for the Patriot Act, but was against it.

He was for the war in Iraq before he was against it. I believe he was always against the war, but he knew he couldn't be more of an anti-war candidate than Dean. So he voted for the war to distance himself from Dean, and get the nomination. He supported the legislation because he would do or say anything to get elected. This isn't the person I want in the White House.

I don't know if the Swift Boat Vets and POWs were right or wrong, I wasn't there, but given Kerry lied about so many other things, I tend to give them the benefit of the doubt. Honesty is a virtue he has not demonstrated to me.
