John Kerry has spent a lifetime both fighting corruption and being targeted by the corrupt.

After his service in Vietnam, Kerry took a stance against the war and Richard Nixon targeted him for his Vietnam protest activities. President Nixon, (aka Tricky Dick) can be heard in taped conversations ordering that his staff to "take down the young demagogue" (aka John Kerry). The individual they chose to lead their attack dog was another Vietnam veteran. This same individual, although unsuccessful in thwarting Kerry and the Vietnam protest in 1971, reemerged during the 2004 presidential election to once again attack Kerry, this time with a lot of conservative money behind him. Sam Fox, recent recess apointment by George W. Bush, personally gave 50K to the "swifties". The trail of the swift-boating campaign was thinly veiled and led back to the GOP and even to White House "Rasputin" Karl Rove, who sent a letter thanking the "swift-boaters" for their help during the election.

Prior to his election as Lt. Governor of Massachusetts and his election to the United States Senate, John Kerry served as Assistant District Attorney where he initiated special units to fight organized crime and white-collar crime. He was one of the first victim advocates, starting programs to council rape victims and other crime victims. Kerry put a notorious local mobster behind bars and won convictions in other important cases, including one high profile rape case. "“I always had a prosecutor’s mind and a prosecutor’s bent," Kerry was quoted as saying in a New Yorker interview.

In the Senate, Kerry continued his war on corruption, taking on an investigatory role that led to the exposé of the Iran-Contra scandal, which was a particularly nasty episode in recent history. Accused drug runners, who were shipping guns to the Nicaraguan Contras, claimed they were under orders of the National Security Council. The implication was that the administration, or at least the National Security Council, turned a blind eye to the drug running. There were attempts to derail Kerry’s investigation, but the scandal was ultimately brought to light. President Reagan's military aide, Oliver North was tried on sixteen felony counts, convicted on three and later had all charges dismissed by the Supreme Court. Today he is a conservative commentator on Fox News. The Assistant Secretary of State for Latin America, Elliott Abrams, pleaded guilty to a felony for lying about foreign funding for the Contras. He was later pardoned by the George Bush Sr. and was appointed by George W. Bush in 2005 as National Security Advisor for Global Democracy Strategy.

During the Iran-Contra investigation, Kerry pursued the financing for the South American drug cartels and the investigation led to the Bank of Credit and Commerce International (BCCI), a powerful, international institution that was eventually exposed as a front for drug running, money laundering and terrorism. Kerry faced strong opposition from the Reagan and Bush administrations and also from powerful members of his own party who did not want him to pursue his investigation. The covert goal of the BCCI was to finance the destruction of Western influence and as part of its goal financed numerous Muslim terrorist organizations. There were alleged CIA connections and a vast web of BCCI corruption that may not be entirely known for generations. Kerry probed further and delved into the connection between drug trafficking and terrorism. In "The New War, the Web of Crime that Threatens America's Security", which Kerry wrote in 1997, he warned of the increasing threat from terrorists.

While Kerry did not win the presidency in 2004, he remains in the Senate, fighting with even more vigor, the corruption that has our country in a stranglehold. And the attacks on him continue as one might expect.

John Kerry is one tough hombre who fights for the honor of America and the American people.

The most retarted fag on the planet
Reasons why john kerry deserved to lose:

He was a dumbass liar
John Kerry extracts: There was no vote on war!
War was wrong!
I did vote to go to war!
(what a retard!)

He thought that the people with more money should pay more, this is partly true, but it should all be equal, if you earned your way to the top why should you have to spend it all on taxes? And also if the rich dont have to pay more, then there prices will drop and theres less money that the middle class has to pay.

A flip-flopper of the first order. Has consistantly portrayed himself as a war veteran when he wasn't. Has constantly lied about atrocities US troops supposedly commited there in 'Nam that he has never NEVER provided proof for. Has consistantly portrayed himself as a champion of the "little people", when he has no clue as to what that entails. Has consistantly given multiple answers to a singular issue and marks it up to nuance. I guess Kerry is consistant, after all.
How does it feel, John, in this "land of two Americas", that you have to go through ours to get to yours?

1. Someone whose supporters can't name a single policy that he had or name anything he would have done that would have made him a better president than the mediocre GWB. If you question Kerry's policies, you are an inbred uneducated redneck.

2. According to Democrats, the only soldier in Vietnam that wasn't an evil baby-killing nazi. If you question Kerry's heroship, you are an inbred uneducated redneck.

3. Someone whose followers believe that calling their opponent a "chimp" or a "nazi" is a mature and intelligent debate tactic. If you question Kerry supporter's arguements, you are an inbred uneducated redneck.

4. Someone whose followers believe that the best way to win over support for their candidate is to insult and belittle the American public as much as possible. If you question the Democratic Party's God-given infallibility, you are an inbred uneducated redneck.

5. Someone supported by poor, oppressed millionaire propagandists like George Soros and Michael Moore. If you don't believe Soros and Moore without question, you are an inbred uneducated redneck.

6. Some one who "had a plan" but couldn't be bothered with telling us this plan. If you question Kerry's intelligence and leadership qualification, you are an inbred uneducated redneck.

7. Someone who barely lost the 2004 election to an unpopular incumbent and probably would have won if he had just taken a solid stand on an issue, any issue. Of course, the Democrats go and blame the American public for their loss and not their own ineptitude. No wonder it's so easy for Republicans to accuse Democrats of "hating America", which would be a ridiculous and unbelieveable claim if not for the Democrat's complete contempt and hatred of anyone who doesn't worship their partyline like a God. If you didn't vote for Kerry, you are an inbred uneducated redneck.

Maybe in 2006 you'll convince enough of these stupid, uneducated, sub-human redneck rubes from outside of New England and California to vote for your candidates. Maybe.
Undecided Voter: So tell me, how will Kerry improve our economy and what's his plan to get us out of this clusterfuck of a war?

Kerry supporter: VIETNAM! VIETNAM! VIETNAAAAAAAAM!!! HE WAS IN VIETNAM AND WAS A GOOD AMERICAN! YOU ARE AN INBRED REDNECK IF YOU DON'T RECOGNIZE HIM AS CHRIST REBORN!!! BUSH IS A MORON NAZI CHIMP ASSHOLE!!! CHIMP! NAZI! FASCIST!!! I wish I was old enough to vote...*sigh*...

Me: Republicans suck, but at least they aren't a bunch of elitist condescending pricks like these guys.
A scumbag who decided to speak out once again, as seen on FOX News today, which is fair and balanced compared to the other mediar channels. This time, it was criticizing Bush once again for going into Iraq, and also about the Iraqi election. Yes, God forbid that people in the Middle East have the right to vote, SO HORRIBLE!!!
It's too bad Kerry doesn't have any idear what he's talking about. However, he does have an idear about why he's so bitchy and whiny: the fact that he lost the election and can't get over it.
the use of the words "idear" and "mediar" above is mocking the Boston-styled way that Kerry pronounces them.
