George W. Bush jr.
George Bush jr. is a member of a big politician family. His father George Bush sr. was US President from 1988 to 1992, his brother, Jeb Bush is governor of Florida and his mother, Pauline, organises election campaigns. Bush jr. has been governeor of Texas since 1994.

He wants to spend 5.5 billion dollars on education, which is 150 billion less than Gore wants to pay, to make sure students in public schools are able to read after the 3rd grade. In the medicine resort he wants to save 100 billion dollars, but like Gore he wants the poorer to get free supply of medicine. Bush was Governor of Texas, so he believes in dead penalty, and he even wants minor criminals to be punished like adults for violent crimes. In one point he totally agrees with Gore, that under 20-years old should not be allowed to ...
