When arguing with pro-Kerry supporters on Iraq, ask them about the permanent military bases. Kerry say he doesn't want to "cut and run, but stay the course". What course? Reducing the legal minimum wage for Iraqi workers, doing away with housing and food subsidies for low income Iraqis, and restricting the rights of Iraqis to organize unions and political parties? Implementing a value added tax, and a flat rate income tax? Privatization of over 200 Iraqi firms, including banks?

Put Kerry's supporters on the spot and ask them to explain the difference between Kerry or Bush implementing a right wing economic agenda in Iraq. You would have already destroyed their argument without even having to venture into domestic issues.
