Election day is right around the corner. On November 7, 2000 American
citizens will be voting whether they want George W. Bush as our president or Al
Gore . Both candidate are well qualified for the job. As Alan Litchman said “ you
have to have a certain basic level of intelligence.” Al Gore has been our vice
president for the past eight years and Mr. Bush is currently the Governor of
George W. Bush and his running mate for vice president Dick Cheney are
representing the Republican party.
Mr.Bush has many plans for taxes such as:
a portion of taxes should go to retirement, no one should have to pay more than
a third of their pay check to taxes, eliminate the death tax, and to double the
child deduction. He also wants to strengthen medicare by making prescription
drugs affordable and available to senior citizens. He wants local government to
have control of schools. He thinks that the military should get better pay and
For the Democratic party Al Gore and running mate Joe Lieberman plan
to continue to build on past successes.
The Democratic Convention opens
Monday in Los Angeles, but Gore will not give his acceptance speech until
Thursday. Gore wants to distance himself from President Clinton with the
words such as “fresh start” with regard to the Clinton scandals. Gore believes
that that George’s budgets don’t balance, because of a huge tax give aways to
the wealthy instead of the middle class, and large deficits that can lead to high
interest rates. Gore is also trying to burden the Bush campaign with voters’
memories of thehigh unemployment rates and weak economic growth that
helped drive his father from the White House in 1992.
I think which ever candidate is chosen for President will have many
challenges in bringing respect and trust back into the Oval office.
