Issue: Kerry versus Bush

When you think of a man of skill, heart and goals, it’s easy to conjure up memories of past American leaders. However, when you think of men who hold passion, vision and hope, only a couple come to mind, like John Kerry and John Edwards. With our country in such tyrant times, America needs leadership that will restore trust and hope within its citizens.

They both share the same values and optimistic vision for the future of the country. John Edwards knows the importance of creating good-paying jobs so all American families can get ahead, because he comes from a place where those jobs have disappeared under President Bush. John Kerry is a combat veteran with over 30 years of experience handling the toughest issues facing America. Together, they will fight to get healthcare costs under control and stand up for a quality education for all Americans. They both are taking complex problems and not just simplifying them, but understanding them, and developing a solution.

Solutions are exactly what America needs for difficult problems, which have put a price tag on freedom. Throughout our country’s history, we have seen men and women pay the price for freedom, yet we still select leaders who can’t visualize what that word really means. It’s time for America to stand up and start choosing the best to lead America forward to a brighter future.

John Kerry and John Edwards are a powerful new team for a new America. A country that believes in freedom should be a country that has no walls.
