GWB for a third term - RF Cafe Forums

Because of the high maintenance needed to monitor and filter spammers from the RF Cafe Forums, I decided that it would be best to just archive the pages to make all the good information posted in the past available for review. It is unfortunate that the scumbags of the world ruin an otherwise useful venue for people wanting to exchanged useful ideas and views. It seems that the more formal social media like Facebook pretty much dominate this kind of venue anymore anyway, so if you would like to post something on RF Cafe's Facebook page, please do.

Below are all of the forum threads, including all the responses to the original posts.

Hey my American cousins "Merry Christmas to you all".

Do you not think that we should ask father santa to make sure GWB is elected a third time?

Or do you think the rest of the world can rely upon you all to lobby your congressional leaders to amend the constitution instead?

Re; that link says "the US led war in vietnam"

Something must have been wrong with my teachers in high school. They told me that the vietnam war was led by the Viet Cong who were backed by China.

Might as well ask if I was also misinformed about China leading the war in Korea while we are on the subject.

I suppose that is why so many US citizens now buy everything from china.

your teacher is definitely wrong. In fact the Vietnamese call it the American war. Money can buy you many thing including slave labor and sometimes the truth – but not always!

So the U.S. of A. went to Vietnam and started invading north vietnam?
Now I see where my teachers were wrong. China did not supply arms to North vietnam to invade south vietnam. They were just defending the US invasion into the north? What about France and the other countries that were supplying "advisors" there before the US ?

Not counted in those figures are the equipment and security resources provided by the U.S., which surpasses that of other counties. The U.S. provided more than 40% of all aid worlwide in 2004.

Nothing is ever enough, so I say we should stop giving totally for a few years and see how things go. If the world hates us and wants to blame us for everything, then let's stop helping out. What will you do - not like us more?

Personally, I think the money we're spending on fighting terrorism worldwide is enough to excuse us altogether for this effort. Let the other countries bear the brunt of the burden for a change.

1) Why are we talking about a 3rd term when the 1st term isn't over yet?
Do you really want to end term limits for president completely or just for W?
Remember, if Clinton could have run in 2000, he would have carried the Blue states won by Gore and his home state of Arkansas giving him the election. Removing term limits now would also open up the next election for Clinton as well as Bush. Be careful of what you wish for.

2) The listing for aid for the tsunami victims is embarassing. We really dropped the ball on this one. As for the figure of 40% of world aid, what is the source of this figure. I think this includes all forms of aid including military, economic, and diasater aid. I disagree with the spending tax money for annual handouts, but coming to the aid of people in crisis from this disaster is just the right thing to do.

Are you offering a housing and job placement or just the transportation cost? LOL

When did you take ownership of the entire country anyway?

"Our" wonderful country has a Constitution with a Bill of Rights that allows all of us to speak our minds.
