Go Dems!

November 8th, 2006 at 11:37 pm

I don't know if I'm asking for trouble posting this, since I've been advised to never discuss religion or politics on the internet and/or with strangers, but...

SQUEE! Go Dems for taking back Congress! And buh-bye Rummy. Good riddance.

Without even going into other issues (don't really want to open that can of worms on a public forum), I, for one, am sick of the financial indiscretions of this Republican administration.

I fully and freely admit that I am nowhere near educated or informed enough to feel comfortable presenting an ind-depth argument supporting my views, which are subject to change, but at the moment, I'd call myself a FISCAL conservative.

That means responsible, sustainable government taxation and spending. I generally side with taxing the rich, and government spending for necessary or good causes (social justice, education, research and development, etc.).

Oh, did I mention minimal government debt? Yeah, can't forget that one.

What has this current administration achieved? Tax cuts for the rich, spending cuts in non-military research and development (which happens to pay my salary), corporate handouts, burgeoning national debt, and a downright financial HEMORRHAGE into Iraq (which has also achieved next to nothing), none of which is consistent with my financial philosophy.

Now I have no clue if the Dems will do any better, but I think it's time for a regime change.

In other words, I'm with the kitty on this one. Big Grin

    seriously, i don't think i'd care what party a person was if they'd just get a frugal frugie in government! someone who understood there are times worth spending money and times worth saving it.

    sheesh, any doofus knows you shouldn't operate at a long-term deficit or it'll bite you in the arse...

    Hehe, yes politics and religion are two topics that I make a conscious effort not to get involved.

    Nevertheless, I am glad that there is a shift in the political winds. I've been very disappointed at our President's handling on the war on terrorism, and the war on Iraq. That and the national deficit. You guys know that he alone more than doubled our deficit right? That's insane!

    I wonder what this presidential race will look like?

    Bush: Worst president in my lifetime

    He's not in touch with what Americans want in terms of:
    * the war
    * stem cell research
    * the environment
    and so much more.

    For everything mentioned here and more, but most of all for signing that (un)Patriot Act and that monstrosity called the Military Commissions Act, I vote George W. Bush the worst (un)elected "president" of all time.

    Amen. We partied last night with the riddance of Dummy - oh I mean Rummy - hehe.

    I actually would consider myself more republican before this presidency, but I don't feel they have upheld many of the republican ideals and values. They have simply given republicans a bad name. I am not thrilled with the Dems either lately BUT I am thrilled that the Dems have control of the house and can keep Bush from doing anything too terrible these next 2 years. More deadlock, but less extreme actions, I think it is WONDERFUL!

    Oh wow - it felt so good to see the pendulum swing back in the other direction, and hear the republicans actually making a little more sense. I tuned in to Rush Limbaugh yesterday just to hear what his spin would be, and he was actually eating a lot of crow. Never thought I Would see the day!!!!! They know they have to change to keep their power.

    The next 2 years prove to be interesting. Hopefully the Dems can do some good. Yay!

    bah! rush limbaugh can bite my toe! "drug additction is a lie and treatment shouldn't be covered, oh, wait, you know what? i'm addicted to pain killers, maybe i need some treatment..." hypocritical windbag...

    back on topic(ish) i read a book from the dollar store called "BushWorld" and it is TOO FUNNY!!! and yes, creepy and scary and sad, too...

    AMEN sister! I don't care what party you belong to, managing to get your finances that far out of whack that quickly (unbalancing the budget in less than 18months!) makes me doubt their judgement and ability to handle being an ADULT, nevermind leader of the most powerful and influential country in the world.
