Default Can someone answer this for me?

Why exactly does the Bush camp require people to sign loyalty oaths, pledging their votes to Bush BEFORE getting into a rally?

Shouldn't a rally be there to sway people to his side?
Shouldn't he want people to hear what he has to say before he commands them to vote for him?

This is pretty much a question for the Republicans roaming around here. I'd like some kind of serious answer please...if anyone can give me a good one, I'd appreciate that.

It's just ,to me anyways, I always assumed a rally was there to help gain new votes to get more support...so I assumed you'd want some people there who didnt already support you.Maybe I'm wrong tho.

You know I find that odd. I know you could register to be a supporter for a political party but why Republicans try to force you into a Loyalty oath. It happened to me on 2000 when I stopped on a republican rally to hear the Governor speaking. A republican representative was flying all over me trying to sway me to sign the oath. That ain't cool man.

it's just like any other business, sometimes you use aggressive tactics to insure a sale.

Hello my good man...it appears as tho you are lost. I believe you were looking for the Off Topic Forum. It is an easy to mistake to make seeing as this is actually a subforum of Off Topic.
I appreciate your enthusiasm in posting....please keep up the good work.

I don't really know. Probably to "Strengthen The Base" or some shit like that. I don't really have a problem with it though. A rally is for the party to gather some steam and energize themselves. It's not like speaking at some function to sway voters. At least, that's what I've always understood it to be. A candidate has a rally with volunteers for his party and members like that.

At any rate, I don't really think it's as insulting as the Democrats saying who wonderfull it is for protesters to excericise their first amendment rights, then safely caging them up in a "Free Speach Zone" when they don't like the message LMAO.

There is surely an ulterior motive, and your question can only be answered with specific reference to Bush's "loyalty oath" by a couple of people...because I'm sure no more than five people (and W may not even be one of them) came up with that [sarcasm]brilliant[/sarcasm] idea.

exo mentioned the "Free Speech Zone" at the DNC but honestly, something to that effect happens at every NC. The homeless of the area are loaded onto trucks and taken to god knows where so the delegates don't have to come down into reality in the middle of the big blind circle jerk that both the DNC and RNC are.

My opinion as to why W's rallieers have to sign that oath is pretty basic. He's a politician and according to the Mirriam-Glue's Dictionary...well, I'll just quote it.

Also...

That really doesn't answer your question Kurt sorry, except to say that all politicians care only about winning their next election. Noone likes a dissenter in a circle jerk.

BTW, I am Conservative and not Republican...there's a subtle difference.

Late.

They want to get those pledges because Bush barely beat Gore, and idiot. ANd Kerry is a serious threat to the Bush admin.

Sure...you can take a run at numbfuck SC or plainjane Josh or complete moron Alex or can't get out of his own way Boston...but I don't agree with you about Barry and it's "Rueben Droughns this" "weed that" "your kids this" "Look at me and my halo over my head that."

Whatever. First of all, you don't have any depth of knowledge about any of that stuff, so you're just talking out of your ass. Secondly, you wouldn't be saying any of that shit if Barry Bonds wasn't some roided up freak who you're in love with.

It's fucking gay. I have better things to do than deal with someone who can't even debate a point, rather changes the subject again and again to deflect the fact that he's dead wrong. It's what dumbass 6th graders do...


I honestly don't give a fuck about your opinion. Like I told Alex, they're just words on a screen. I can't believe you don't get that concept...but okay.

I mean...you're the kind of guy that thinks if you yell louder than the other person, you will win a debate. And that's not new either...I've pretty much thought that about you from day one...

I didn't want to put it that way, but since you want to press on...

Lame dude. Just lame. I have better shit to do. You probably should too...but I'm betting you don't...
