This is in response to the editorial by Ryan Chapman entitled "Kerry fans need to get over it." I keep my sign in my window not because I feel I am helping to grow support for the Kerry campaign, but to show in a tactful way that I do not support our current president or the numerous mistakes that he has made and continues to make while in office.
Now I don't want to reiterate arguments to you that you have probably heard and chosen to ignore a thousand times about the legitimacy of his presidency. We could argue all day about the outcome of the 2000 election. So I will just say this, rather than try to bash people who are unhappy with the current administration, why not take a closer look at why they are so discontented? Erosion of the separation between church and state, war in Iraq, a poor environmental record, lack of diplomacy in dealing with the rest of the world, nominating an anti-U.N. person as the ambassador to the U.N., changing the laws on conflict of interest and playing up the Terry Schiavo case to deflect attention from the Tom Delay debacle – I could go on all day as to why so many of us our unhappy. So yes, I will keep my Kerry sticker in the window. I consider it a badge of honor, proclaiming my disdain for the current administration and its policies.
