From The Iconoclast newspaper of Crawford, Texas (they endorsed Bush in 2000): Kerry Will Restore American Dignity 2004 Iconoclast Presidential Endorsement Few Americans would have voted for George W. Bush four years ago if he had promised that, as President, he would: Empty the Social Security trust fund by $507 billion to help offset fiscal irresponsibility and at the same time slash Social Security benefits. Cut Medicare by 17 percent and reduce veterans benefits and military pay. Eliminate overtime pay for millions of Americans and raise oil prices by 50 percent. Give tax cuts to businesses that sent American jobs overseas, and, in fact, by policy encourage their departure. Give away billions of tax dollars in government contracts without competitive bids. Involve this country in a deadly and highly questionable war, and Take a budget surplus and turn it into the worst deficit in the history of the United States, creating a debt in just four years that will take generations to repay.
