Where the hell have you been living?Originally posted by: IamDavid
Maybe, maybe not... I see the economy stronger than ever. It's not based on a crazy bubble. And companies who have broke the law have are are in proceess of eing brough to justice.. Without witch hunts.
I see a level headed approach to border security... No, militarization on the border and no amnesty.
Ou country is safe. I haven't seen any foreign fighters attack us on our soil, can't be said about other countries who have tried to appease.
That said I would not vote for Bush today if this was an election year. He has no "unity" skills at all. Not even with the people of his own party. He may be the most dedicated president in our history but he can't do anything alone. If only we could find a president with Clinton's people skills and Bush's dedication... Unfortunately those kinds of people are smart enough not to enter politics...
You are going to sit here and tell me that we are not sitting on top of what could be the biggest asset bubble in world history? The economy is still only going strong because Americans have a *NEGATIVE* saving rate. This attitude is mirrored by the borderline fiscally criminal attitude of the "spend what you don't have" "Republicans".
All Bush and his cronies have done is borrow economic gains from the future and brought them to the present, shackeling the future generations of this country to oppressive debt. He has encouraged that in the private sector too, where Americans are more in debt than at any other point in history.
The absence of attack on our soil is because the prolific attacks on other soil. Since when was an Iraqi life worth less than an American? Since when was 3,000 casualties justification for a false war that has caused 20,000+ causalties?
What about the continual erosion of our rights? Unfettered wiretaps, appeasement of an authoritarian government? What about the erosion of our own soldier's safety in the circumvention of the Geneva Conventions?
People like you are why I *USED* to be a Republican but now try to distance myself from you as far as possible. You are ignorant, uneducated, and dangerous in your rubber-stamp policy.
