Spying on TN Democrats...

I live here in Tennessee, a (fortunately) more conservative state than NY, and I was talking to one of my best friend's mom tonight and I couldn't help but bring up the subject of politics. I thought she was a Bush supporter so I started talking to her poking fun at Kerry, and she informed me at the fact that she was going to vote for Kerry in November. She like many of the people here that will vote for Kerry are voting with their wallets. The stock market fall out left their retirement funds a bit lacking. I almost asked her if she took into affect Kerry's voting record on taxes.

The fact that he voted the side that would end with up higher taxes over 350 times.

That Kerry said one of the first things he will do is reverse Bush's tax cuts that stimulated the growth in the economy and saved US taxpayers on average almost $2,000 this past year. Fox News

She also mentioned to me how she was against the illegal immigrants taking jobs from legal citizens as well as jobs being moved to Mexico.

"Kerry then went on to promise that the 8 million to 12 million illegal aliens in the U.S. would be given a 'path to citizenship' in his first 100 days in office." Fox News

She ended up asking me to change the subject since politics is something that has been known to make for nasty fights. It ended neutral I believe, but I'd have liked to shown her to vote on the records of Bush and Kerry rather than just her pocketbook. I should have just given her this link. 40 Reasons
