Between the debt and cutting taxes during a war, I don't think this is going anywhere. Its got to be repaid somehow.
Same old rhetoric from his bullshit "compassionate conservative" days. If he stops pursuing the psychotic neocon agenda, maybe the hatred wouldn't be there in the first place. However, he has shown that he is a divider, not a uniter. Nice idea. He won't make it happen. He's a day late and a millionaire' tax cut short.
Cutting social security? He'd love to get rid of it, which I am firmly against. Medicare? Medicaid?
Don't talk to me about all this shit when we are financing an unnecessary war where billions upon billions are being spent. Free the Iraqis? Rather than put the money back into social security? Isn't money that is put into social security put back into the economy by seniors anyway?
Maybe he should've thought of all this shit before he ran the debt up with tax cuts and foriegn wars.
As long as people can back it up, I don't care who they vote for. Each side has valid points, especially in from an economic standpoint. But it seems many times that Republicans want to put all the blame for everything on the Democrats not cooperating. Well of course they're not cooperating! George II is trying to gut social security! What kind of liberal or leftist agrees with taking away the thing that keeps seniors above the poverty line?
Either Zap or Zeb said once long ago that "Necessity is the mother of invention". There will be big push for hybrid/hydorgen cars until oil is 1) over 4 dollars a gallon regularly or 2)there is no oil left. That's it. Bush, being an oilman, is not going to hurt that industry. He would much rather spew the propaganda, then let a future president deal with the shitstorm.
I don't mind taxes. Now, I don't pay property taxes, but I know they are very high (at least in NJ). However, the standard of living is high, so it evens out.
I agree that there are ridiculous pork barrel projects that suck the money out, and that should me moderated. However, that is the congressman's game. That isn't going anywhere.
I agree that partisanship is bad. But there are two parties here that differ severly on many issues. I have said many times that they are two sides of the same coin, and I still believe that; the main differences are social issues that will never change.
Yet with someone like Bush, there will be no uniting. And I'm not sure I want untiting, as it will only be under the Republican's ways that the Democrat's can "unite". The best they can do is hope to stop the ridiculous measure that George II puts through. Little more.
