ELECTION 2004

By Joe Keo/ The Tattoo

 

Casting my first ballot

There are certain milestones in life that they say everyone goes through,such as getting your first kiss, your driver’s license and making your first vote. I got my first kiss, I got my license and Tuesday I voted. Click here for story

Teens will inherit pain-filled world

Teenager — a word that sends chills down many adults’ spines. Once upon a time, the word meant a person from 13 to 19 years old. But now, teenagers are labeled as hooligans, vandals and all-over bad people. But is this stereotype really fair? Are teenagers truly as bad as adults describe them? We teenagers are people, too.

Focus on America first

It’s time for voters to focus on the future and reject candidates who won’t put America first. Any candidate who finds it necessary to pledge his loyalty to another country should be politely invited to go to that country and run for office there! Click here for story

Flip-flopping liars could kill us

Watching the vice presidential debate, I thought Senator John Edwards looked like a downright fool. Behind his smooth-talking facade is a whole load of outright lies.If you take the time to think on your own, and listen to what John Kerry and his imbecile running mate are actually saying, you will see they have no legs to stand on.
