A obsessed Rethug on Kerry...
Advertisements [?]
Not that I'm against Kerry...but this was posted by a thuglican who is obsessed with painting Kerry as a bad person by some of his propasals...

What is your take on this...

here's the post...
What I did do was re read my post on John Kerry and found something interesting. John Kerry's attempt to dismantle the military was not done by voting. It was done by introducing legislation!
I have provided the same information showing that John Kerry introduced legislation by himself and without any co sponsors! This is his deal 100%.

Cut the number of Navy submarines and their crews
Reduce the number of light infantry units in the Army down to one
Reduce tactical fighter wings in the Air Force
Terminate the Navy's coastal mine-hunting ship program
Force the retirement of no less than 60,000 members of the Armed Forces in one year.
(S.1163, Introduced 6/24/93)
In 1995, Kerry Proposed A Bill 9Gutting $1.5 Billion From Intelligence Budget. Kerry introduced a bill that would "reduce the Intelligence budget by $300 million in each of fiscal years 1996, 1997, 1998, 1999, and 2000." There were no cosponsors of Kerry's bill, which never made it to the floor for a vote. (S. 1290, Introduced 9/29/95)

In 1996, Kerry Introduced Bill To Slash Defense Department Funding By $6.5 Billion. Kerry's bill had no co-sponsors and never came to a floor vote. (S. 1580, Introduced 2/29/96)

In 1985, Kerry Introduced Comprehensive Nuclear Freeze Bill. Kerry introduced: "A bill to provide for a comprehensive bilateral and verifiable freeze between the United States and the Soviet Union on the testing, production, and deployment of nuclear weapons systems." The bill had no co-sponsors, and never made it to the Senate floor for a vote. (S.1500, Introduced 7/25/85)

His attempts to downsize the military along with his long history of voting against the military shows his feelings clearly on what type of military he believes the United States should have.

It has nothing to do with believing the funds should be better spent elsewhere as some would want us to believe. That is the sound of a liberal trying to cover their butt in a cold winter breeze!

John Kerry has described himself as an anti war candidate. And the military is used when? IN WAR!

Kerry has a long history of voting habits that is not healthy for the United States. In a time when terrorists are looking for any weakness in the United States defense system, we don't need a president who believes, and also attempted to weaken our military.
