Nov-3-00 Block 4 Candidate Letter 564 words November 3, 2000 Dear Ms Latour ell, When you vote I think you should vote for George Bush. George Bush doesn't have as much experience as Gore, but He is highly educated and does still have a lot of political experience. George Bush's plans on certain subjects such as social security and Medicare, gun control and education are better that Gores and are more realistic. George Bush was born on July 6, 1946, in New Haven, CT. His religion is Methodist.
George Bush went to Harvard or Yale, for four years each. He was also a pilot for the air national guard. He has also been the Governor of Texas for eight years, and still is. Al Gore is also highly educated, but not as much as bush. He served in the army during Vietnam, but wasn't in any combat, or even in the country of Vietnam. I think George Bush has a better personality than Gore.
One of the main issues that will influence the election is gun control. A lot of laws and bans have been set up, but they only people they affect are law-abiding citizens. Setting laws prohibiting hi-capacity clips and assault rifles, will not affect the criminals from getting one. It will only stop collectors and responsible citizens from getting one. Criminals aren't going to register their illegal assault rifles, or they wont use gun locks. The best way to stop violence and accidents caused by guns is to educate people about guns.
George Bush provides twice as much money as Gore for educating people about gun safety, and how to be responsible with your guns. Bush's plan requires gun locks to be sold with all guns, and he will increase the age to buy handguns to 21, so it would be harder for gang members to get handguns. Bush will also spend more money than Gore for the enforcement of gun laws. Gore wants to license guns, but Bush thinks that registering is unnecessary, but Gore would do that. Gore would also ban gun shows, which is stupid because they still sell guns legally, and most criminals don't get guns at gun shows.
Social security is another important issue. George Bush will set aside 2. 4 trillion for all workers to invest individually. This will raise the average social security income by three times. With Gore's plan, you spend more money, and it only increases the life of social security for 55 years, Bush's increases it's life indefinitely.
George Bushes Health care plan will completely reform the Medicare system. He will make a Patients Bill of rights, like he did in Texas. Gore's plan is similar to Bush's, but spends a lot more money. Welfare and labor are other important issues that I think Bush's plans are superior to Gore's. George Bush wants to promote charitable giving by making money giving to charities tax deductible. Al Gore opposes this.
George Bush will spend 1. 7 billion dollars over the next five years for home rehab for low income families, Gore won't. Bush will also have a fifty percent tax credit for home rehab, which Gore would have spent on an insufficient social security plan. Bush also supports a low income oil heating bill, which Gore opposes. I think that George Bush would be a better president of the United States than Gore.
