In June 2003, President Bush's Supreme Court overruled a 17-year-old sodomy law in Texas - impacting 12 other states with similar laws. Some say that this move helps pave the way for gay marriage, possibly ruffling the feathers of some so-called liberals such as presidential candidate Howard Dean who has spoken out against gay marriage. In New York, the first officially 'gay' Public High School was established. Some site historic events such as these as indicators of the Bush Administration creating a supportive climate for gay rights.

|President George W. Bush was the first president to have an actual government campaign for compassion. Rather than having "Armies of War," Bush has ordered that "Armies of Compassion" be established across the nation in order to "Provide incentives for charitable giving" and "Provide support to populations in need, such as the more than 2 million children with a parent in prison." The Compassion Agenda of George W. Bush is also charged with serving the needs of many other groups including:|

George W. Bush believes in securing our government and nation by deferring to women in positions of leadership. Studies show that, on average, women live longer than men, suggesting that women make better choices about their personal life - choices that lead to better living. By having women in leadership positions, some believe that, on average, this will result in better government and a better society. Here are just a few examples of women in leadership positions with George W. Bush:

demonstrated a strong desire for a reduction in all weapons of warfare.

This represents an ongoing trend for Bush who chose to pursue a non-military career.

"President Putin and I have signed a treaty that will substantially reduce our nuclear -- strategic nuclear warhead arsenals to the range of 1,700 to 2,200, the lowest level in decades," said President Bush. "This treaty liquidates the Cold War legacy of nuclear hostility between our countries." (link to source)|

W. Bush appreciates nature and the outdoors.

It's not surprising
that Bush appointed Governor Christie Whitman
be a member of the President's Cabinet in charge of protecting the
environment. Whitman won voter approval for her
state's first stable funding source to preserve an
unprecedented one million more acres of open space and farmland.
Shown above, Bush is walking with forest rangers as he surveys locations that are collaboratively selected by Federal agencies, state authorities, tribal leaders, local officials and community members for preservation and care. President Bush increased funding for much needed forestry care from $117 million in 2000 to $417 million in his FY 2004 budget request - funds acquired and distributed through a model of socialism.

|In the photo to the right, President Bush visits the American cemetery near Omaha Beach at Normandy, France, May 27, 2001. "All who come to a place like this feel the enormity of the loss. Yet, for so many, there is a marker that seems to sit alone -- they come looking for that one cross, that one Star of David, that one name," said the President in his remarks. "Behind every grave of a fallen soldier is a story of the grief that came to a wife, a mother, a child, a family, or a town." (link to source) These kinds of sentiments are|
not surprising considering that Bush chose a career of political diplomacy over military service.
On Friday morning, March 21, 2003, President George W. Bush meets with his war council in the Situation Room of the White House. Present at the table are, from foreground, National Security Advisor Condoleezza Rice, CIA Director George Tenet, Chief of Staff Andy Card, Secretary of State Colin Powell, Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Richard B. Myers. White House photo by Eric Draper. (20030321fr, source: White House photo, link to source)
Commentary: We're unsure of the actual context for the photo above, but judging from the stunned expression of Richard B. Myers (Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff seen on left of Condoleezza Rice) our intelligence analysts suggest that an awkward silence fell on the room as President Bush ordered the U.S. Air Force to drop more leaflets on Iraq rather than bombs, and that the leaflets were to be printed using soy based ink on recycled paper that was 100% post consumer waste. This prompted the sarcastic comment from Donald Rumsfeld (Secretary of Defense seen on Bush's right), "Why don't we just send them e-mail messages." (Followed by brief laughter) To which the president, looking at Colin Powell, and responded, "That's a better idea. 'CP' - make it happen." It is suspected that this incident sparked the largest PSYOPS (psychological operations) campaigns in U.S. military history resulting in reduced casualties of war that changed all future strategies for military engagements.
