Yea, and I guess the simple fact that Congress has been in the Democrats control for the last 2 years has nothing to do with what's going on either right? Oh, but only the President of the US has all the power, right? This kind of ignorant babbling is what is making Obama win. And you know what? I hope he wins, not with my help, but I hope he wins because the ignorance of the average person in this country deserve a punishment only Obama can provide.
So what Congress has all the power? There is this little thing called Balance of Powers. "The Do Nothing" Congress, as it has often been called, has been restricted because Anything that happens to be passed(Bailout aside, whom neither side among citizens generally agreed with) could be vetoed by the president. To overturn that veto, they would need three/fourths majority. Now maybe if incredible partisanship didn't exist, the democrats slim majority wouldn't matter.
Yea, let's elect a man whos mentor hate sthe US, who worked with a terrorist, who was part of a group called ACORN known for their fraud and agressive tactics, oh, and let's not forget how he wants to sit down with people like the President of Iran with no pre-conditions. He also wants to punish people for not having insurance (rich or poor) with fines, he wants to only 5% of working people to pay for taxes while everyone else either gets to pay a lot less, pay nothing or even get extra money back . I guess that is definitely fair.
HAHAHAHA I am the ignorant one? By Obama's mentor I assume you mean Rev. Wright, even though their relationship was entirely sensationalized by the evil left wing media. Rage over the semantics used to criticize america, or is dissent now unamerican? If so you may as well be calling George Washington Un-American. What about McCain's Hagey? And the 72 year old(12,000 pages of medical records since 2000, when he last had to hand in his medical records[compared to Obama's one page for 20 years) running mate Palin's reverand curing her of witches(the same man who walked into a town in africa I believe which was on hard times and convinced the towns people and whipped them into a frenzied mob chasing the a young woman the man claimed was a witch). Oh the rehabilitated domestic terrorist guy Obama barely knew. They served on some board set up by Republicans. The same ones John McCain endorse right? McCain is in the clear right? In the Clear about the fundraiser he attended with an extremist pro-life group. That was championing a woman who was recently arrested for shooting a doctor for preforming legal abortions, and also connected with fire bombing abortion clinics. A woman whom upon conviction the Arizona judge called a demostic terrorist. Let's forget that though, but there is still his connections to the Iran Contra affair. Like the funding he gave to the human right's violating drug smugling Contras. And his connection to Oliver North. Now Ayers was never convicted of a crime, and never killed anyone. North by contrast was convicted, but his testimonial gave him immunity. Under the direction of North, The US sold 48 mill. in missles, and other weapons to Iran, classified as an international sponser of terror. North then illegaly used some of his money to help fund the terrorist contras. McCain's view? His website boasts his endorsement. McCain also supported North's 1994 bid for Virginia senate. If you want I can go on further about others connections to the Iran-Contra affair, or other connections to terrorism.
I'll finish with to me personally, I don't believe in Guilt By Association. I choose instead to vote on policies. I do not agree with the idea of privitization. It is my opinion it leads to things the housing collapse we are currently going through, which began in '99 when Bill Clinton signed into law a deregulation bill introduced by the republican congress. I believe limited regulation is helpful, because the market does not regulate it self. I beleve regulation stopped children in ware houses, and gave us the 40 hour work. I believe the FDR style of politics helps us and lead us to prosperity. I believe Reagan style of politics has lead us further into debt with every republican to have contiued his policies. I challenge you to look that up for yourself to. That is my opinion, If yours is different wonderful, but unless it's at the very least Libertarianism(whom atleast belive in freedom unlike republicans) I most likely won't respect your opinion. What was next oh when you said screw diplomacy, I agree we shouldn't do that at all, even though thats what Bush is now doing, and what our commanders on the ground recomend we do, screw those guys to! Grr...I hate diplomacy soo much...we just need to bomb bomb bomb every one, right? thats the way it comes off to me atleast. Why can't you guys understand policy? Obama would only punish a corporate entity like Walmart for not giving healthcare options to its employees. I wouldn't have to pay a dime, a rich person wouldn't have to pay a dime if we had no healthcare. and a small buisness would receive tax credits for healthcare. Is it really that hard to understand? You said I was Ignorant? atleast I know what what both McCain and Obama propose instead of running around spewing out what i heard out of main stream media. AS far as taxes go look at how 90% of people in the US installed governments of Central and South America live. That's the tax policy you want. Where the rich stay rich, and the middle fall into the lower class. Lower class can't afford to raise themselves out of poverty. It's about giving the lower class a fair opportunity to raise themselves out of poverty. To contribute to society to make an overall stronger, more resilient, richer country for everyone rich included. The Rich already pay a disporportionatly low percentage of taxes.
I find it funny you blame Bush for what is going on when it's ben proven time and again the Democrats started this whole BS. Not that you will admit it, all you will probably say is the Republican had control of the House at the time. People like you deserve Obama.
I don't only blame Bush. I blame his admistration. I blame all Republicans since Nixon, more specifically the Regan Era Politicians. There has been a major democrat party spilt. Now you have FDR democrats and Reagan democrats. As I said above. I do blame Bill Clinton and the Republican congress for getting us into the mess in '99. Funny to see you speaking out against the Republican mantra of deregulation though. For the Record both sides are corrupt and don't often act how their constituancys woud like, in other words the both suck. My personally beliefs as what could be classified as a progressive leans me toward voting for democrats, but like I said they both suck. I believe over the past eight years the Republican's have been insanely and almost completely corrupt, while only most democrats are corrupt. So yes in that sense I do blame Republicans much more than democrats. Again I blame both sides of the two party dictatorship for most of our problems. I blame the republicans more so for doing much more to craft our consumer economy that helped to dum what percentage of the population did vote. I won't be as shallow as you and say something like, No, It's people like you the deserve what we have now.
